Frost. The Art of Custom Cake

Anyone who knows me knows that I love cupcakes.  I especially adore mini cupcakes.  Confession: I will even eat them for breakfast if they're in the house.  shhh, don't tell my daughter.  My favorite cupcakes in town are from Frost.  Confession two:  I recently tried their vegan vanilla cupcake and it was so incredibly delicious that I ate the one I was saving for my daughter while she was sleeping!  shhh, I'm lucky she can't read yet!

Frost is a collaborative effort between sisters, Stacie Thering, Tami Traeden and Aimee Traeden who reside in Portland, Oregon.  Together they love to create delicious, artful cakes and cupcakes for any event.
Visit their website for the full menu-

Not only are they scrumptious, look how cute these cupcakes are!

Mai B.

Happy Saturday! I woke up to a gorgeous sunny sky, granted it's freezing, but the sun feels wonderful.  This week my big project was adding a finished jewelry section to Harvest Beads.  I did it!  I have a bunch of beautiful earrings by Mai B, the collaborative project of yours truly and my dear friend Stacie Mai.  Our earrings are made of fused fine silver, sterling silver and lampwork beads.  Come take a peek, I'm so excited to share these with everyone:)

Portland Valentine

 I just love this picture. The colors, the raindrops, the beauty of an overcast morning. I was walking my daughter to school and there they were, these two adorable heart-shaped leaves that had fallen into this perfect little arrangement.  So sweet.  My kind of valentine :)  Hope you all had a wonderful day!
