Visit her blog to see more samples. The Queen of Hearts is to die for.

 Have a great day!


Easy Valentine Treats

I really love this time of year. Love is in the air and there's so many fun ideas to try with making Valentine's.

My girls and I make our Valentines every year and their classes are quite big. So whatever it is we make has to be EASY.

How do you store your sponges? I use this glass jar for…
