Living on Inspiration

Geez, I don’t feel (and most people say I don’t look) a day over 18. But, here I am…25 as of yesterday! I am so thankful for where I am in life. God is so good. Technology is the best…I was able to share some of my day with my family through texting, phone calls, & FaceTime. My wonderful husband took me to dinnerĀ  & the mall (TWO Guess purses, check them out at the end of the post!). Grandma came over and cooked us lunch, then the rest of the family stopped by for cake time! Here’s a look into my day:

I also received some really cute tops and a skirt, but we need to do some exchanging of sizes! So-so thankful for a wonderful husband who went out of his way to make my birthday so very special!

A birthday cake for Lauren


My little sister Lauren turned 12 today! She requested an elephant birthday cake. I’m not the world’s best baker…by any means. I found the most simple cake recipe and got my craft on. Here’s what I came up with. (apologies for the iphone pix)

#1: I found this elephant silhouette online

#2: print, cut, outline, cut on glitter paper

#3: color edges

#4: punch hole & color for eye

#5: i used scrapbook paper for the bunting

#6: combination of pattern/colors

#7: staple triangles to ribbon

#8: attach to sticks (i’ve use shish-kabobs)


For my first cake from scratch, I’d say i did pretty good. :) I”ll post pictures of the everyone next time! :)
