Doo dads

Mom dropped off a bag full of what-nots...picking through I found these two precious figures. They are giveaways from old Northwest Orient Airline flights, probably during our trips on home-leave. What's best is their heads bobble...

Whimsy Wendy's New Website

Finally finished the first draft of my new website, published on Wix. Check out http://www.whimsywendy.com/ and give me your feedback. Always curious to see if I'm on track or it I have left anything out. Definitely need to add more pictures.
I love it when my clients send me pictures of their cutie-pies in my things. Here's the most recent:

Up North Beautiful

There are just some moments living in the Midwest that you wouldn't change a thing. It's been a long winter already, but this last weekend was a perfect example of why we still live in this climate. Saturday morning, we woke up to hoar frost on each branch and needle. With the sunlight coming up, it was stunning.

Prepping for the School Bake Sale

A bake sale for the Middle and Lower schools tomorrow...I can't help it. I just can't back plain cookies anymore. Cutest website I've seen in a long time got me started on these delectable cake pops. www.bakerella.com has the neatest ideas, recipes and beautiful photos. If you have a sweet tooth like I do, this is a great place to start.
I had to try a couple attempts at these morsels. I tried making them way to big at first, then had to cut them into thirds. Freezing them with their sticks in really helped too.

I used a Devils Food Cake mix, cream cheese frosting and candy melts. They are so versatile because you could decorate them for any occasion... just change up the sprinkles, candy melt colors, ribbons, etc.

I stuck them in round Styrofoam semi-circles, covered and decorated with tissue paper and ribbon, added a recipe card for allergy information and that's it. Next time, I know the girls are going to want to help me! It's really messy.
