Cranberry Cream Cheese Muffins {Wilton Armetale Giveaway}


Cranberry Cream Cheese Muffins are my favorite go-to recipe for Fall. These muffins are the perfect combination of sweet-creamy cake and tart cranberry flavor. They are always well received at church potlucks and family gatherings. I first discovered the recipe back in 2007 and have made a batch at least twice per year ever since. Speaking of church potlucks, I brought a few dozen to church this past Sunday to share. The muffins were an ideal compliment to the pots of chili and beef stew other folks had contributed. Plus, they looked positively elegant on my brand new Viceroy Oval Tray from ... ...continue reading

Headleveler Junior Pillows


My girls, ages 2.5 and (almost) 4, have been using a pillow at bedtime since they were around 18 months old. Until recently, I honestly hadn't come across many toddler-sized pillows that seemed like a good fit and had resorted to giving them thin standard sized pillows made for adults. Not only are they difficult to wash but they lose their shape very quickly and offered the girls very little support.   When I came across Headleveler, a company that offers made-to-measure pillows for both children and adults, I spotted the Junior Pillows and hoped they would work well for the girls. ... ...continue reading

How to Take Your Art into the Next Dimension with Cricut

This is a sponsored post. It started out as a doodle, something small, casually tossed in the margin of your grocery list. But somehow this graphic element took over and before you knew it, it became the decorative element to everything in your world. Unfortunately all those minute details that you added make it virtually impossible to transform it into the third dimension. Not true. If you can print it, you can cut it with the Cricut Explore machine. Now with the newest feature of the Cricut Explore machine, you can choose your image (either your own or one of 50,000+ in the Cricut ... ...continue reading
