Pie A La Mode

So, in case you weren't aware, I watch the Martha Stewart Show everyday. I absolutely love her! A few days ago, she had a lady on who was showing us how to make these adorable felt cherry pies. I think I am going to have to give it a try. I will let you know how it turns out.

She also makes cute little donuts and cookies. Unfortunately, there was no tutorial for those! I will have to try and figure them out for myself.

Now, I realize Catie is a little too young to be interested in these toys, but I just can't help myself. I figure since I have the time now, I might as well make her some and I can save them for later. Who knows how busy I will be in a year or two?!?!
For Catie's first birthday, I commissioned my Mom(aka Nana) to make her some adorable crocheted cupcakes. The ones below were selling online for $31.99 plus shipping, and I just knew that she could whip them out for pennies..
And boy did she! Take a look, I think she did a phenomenal job. I keep telling her she needs to open an Etsy shop to sell her stuff.

Rather than the little felt holder that the original cupcakes came in, I found a great little cupcake box at Hobby Lobby that fit perfectly. Plus, I really loved the bright colors it came in... So, if you know anyone who would like a set of these fun cupcakes, I think I can hook you up.

Well, this concludes my very first blog! I hope you enjoyed it, and look for many more to come. My head is always twirling with ideas...
