Some more stuff from me...and my mom.

A small wedding cake my mom made.
Turtle cheesecake I made...and dropped in the dirt!
My Birthday cake off of the 07 Southern Living Christmas book cover.
My first attempt at fondant icing...not so great. :)
My sister's 16th party...few years ago. We had lantern candle jars hanging in the trees. It was great!

My creativity at work...

Fall Festival Treats
Pumpkins I carved for the Fall Festival
These looked great later that night!

Gift I wrapped for a friend...

Aspirations

So, this is my first attempt at a blog...after joining Country Living's message board, I realized the vast amount of bloggers out here that are doing the exact things I dream of doing one day. My day job is a high school teacher, but I truly desire to start my own business mixing my love for entertaining, pastry, crafty things, antiques, polkadots, simple things, and creativity in general. I have all these ideas swimming in my head all the time...sure, it's relaxing to daydream at times, but it's to the point I have to let some of this "escape"... :) So, I guess I'll start by just posting things that inspire me -- pics, words, websites, people, places...just whatever.
