Thinking about Design ! Boxed Muffins and a Birthday!

I am in full Valentine's mode I joined an intense Love ATC swap 20 partners !!!!!(piccys later)
And I got inspiration today from the Valentine's edition of Pottery Barn Kids really cute Love blocks but not sure if I am going to make them out of paper as they did or if I shall use wood? Stay tuned.......

I feel really old my Baby Just turned 10! This week has been interesting to say the least.
We went Skating which is really scary!
I cannot believe I used to be able to skate backwards and do jumps etc. I now consider myself lucky to stay upright!
And then we went out to eat she received a alarm clock/Charger /Speaker unit for her phone and the first day of school she was wakened by said unit ,got up, dressed and was in an unusually agreeable mood...weird!

Our school has adopted a new policy regarding Birthday/Party Treats that are sent in.
They would like them to be more on the healthy side.

I sent in Blueberry Muffins.

I had three Mother's come up to me after school asking for the Recipe apparently they were a hit!

With slight hesitation in giving out my precious family recipe I am now going to share it with you too.....

Wait for it........

I cannot believe I am about to reveal this treasured family recipe!

Are you ready for the big reveal???






******Duncan Hines Blueberry Streusal Muffins!!!******
Tada! I am a baking genius!
No applause necessary! I know I have mad skills! :)

There now you have it. I guess you may now do with this information what you will! :)

I have two girls age 5 and 10. So all things girly are constantly in play here.

So much so that when we went to select our dog my Husband insisted on a male! Too Funny!
Any way, Santa brought a few presents regarding designing clothing,we have been busy! I will share those items also as we finish them!

I have to go and do my very favorite thing now, Laundry (extreme sarcasm)!
Have a great Night!

  2. I love your blog! I don't have any girls in my house, all boys.. nice to see some girly things! I will be following :) Stopping by for Blog Comments swap on swapbot.

  3. Omg, you made me think about how long it has been since I last had skates on. I'm suddenly feeling VERY old. I know I still have those skates though, and there is a huge lake close to where I live that is frozen until June (ok, May, but still...) so I have no excuses.


  4. That's great your school still let's you bring "homemade" items. My kids are to little but my sister is a teacher and she told me that you are only allowed to bring store bought items. Crazy!

    Looking forward to seeing the pictures of the V-Day ATC's.

  5. I used to always send in Slice and Bake peanut butter cookies with Hershey's Kisses pressed into the middle when I wanted a homemade treat with less work. But that was back in the 1980s when my kids were young and unhealthy snacks were the norm. -Hollychihuahua from Swap-Bot
