Dry & Cracked Winter Hands?

Every year when the temperature drops and the wind starts up
I use this every night to keep my cuticles and fingertips from cracking or drying out.

Pinterest rests my mind

I am a collector. Of pictures. Of articles. Of personal interests.
So somehow someone smarter than I created Pinterest JUST FOR ME!

In one place I collect my ideas, loves, interests and projects, things to bake, things to make, etc.  I can't believe the space it opened up in my troves of binders and magazine articles but most importantly, in my mind! No more non-descript bookmark titles that I never revisit. No more clippings all over my desk of "things I want to make or do someday." It's all totally self-contained in one website!

Last week I was dying for some delicious but different cupcakes so I went to my 
And decided on these Neapolitan Cupcakes:

Here's mine (I added defrosted frozen raspberries to my strawberry cake mix):

I have been posting a lot about Pinterest lately but soon I will start posting about my girls room I am
decorating! It's going to be fun and funky.. here's some hints...

Come join in on the fun!! If you aren't already playing pop over an email and I will send you an invite!

Stop Bullying: Speak Up | Pledge

Found a really great article on BlogHer today!

Bullying hurts our kids. It can have a lasting and damaging impact on their lives - sometimes more than we realize. Our goal is to raise awareness of the simple, yet powerful actions that parents, kids, and educators can take to prevent bullying. We hope to inspire millions of bystanders to take action by speaking up when they see bullying and to grow a community committed to ending bullying.

We know that the vast majorities of kid & teens are NOT engaged in bullying, but when it occurs, everyone has the power to stop bullying when they see it happen.
That’s why Facebook and Time Warner launched the Stop Bullying: Speak Up pledge. At its core, the Pledge is a public statement from parents, teachers, and students that they will take action when you see bullying occur. It’s aimed at inspiring the grand majority of people who witness bullying to come together as a community, take simple steps to help someone in need, and to create a culture that makes bullying – and the drama that leads to it – uncool.
More than 80,000 people throughout the country have taken the Pledge. Today, we ask you to join the movement. Here are a few simple actions that will go a long way:
  1. Take the pledge. Go to to take the Pledge. Then share it with all of your family and friends on Facebook.
  2. Post the pledge on your blog. Go to the Take Action Center and click on the Get the Widget link so that you can get the widget. Your readers will be able to take the pledge without ever leaving your page.
  3. Share your stories. We encourage you to write, blog, post your stories about how bullying has impacted you, your family, and your friends. We hope to feature some of your stories on the Stop Bullying: Speak Up wall in the coming weeks and months.
Do any of you have memories in school of bullying?

Eyeball Specimens {wink} {wink}

So as I've seen many creepy extremities
recreated in food
this season.

I gave eyeballs a go...

Not sure I nailed it?

And if I did... would you eat it?

If you would like to try, you need:
Hard-boiled Eggs
Food Dye
Cupcake Liners
Toothpicks & thin bristled paintbrushes

Here is what I did...
Waited for the eggs to cool
Shelled them & patted dry
A dollop of mayo in each liner then
Cut the eggs in half and put one half in each liner
Use a toothpick or paintbrush for the {veins} of the eye
(Be sure to drop extra dye along the mayo too)
Use a paintbrush for the pupil

M & W were a little reluctant to try 
because they were busy saying Eeewwwww!"
but Lil A
gobbled them right up!

If I do these for an upcoming Halloween party
we have been invited to I am going to water down
my food dye so I get a more cartoon[ish] color.

Find more Halloween inspirations HERE.
And, if you need an invite to Pinterest, EMAIL me HERE.
