Chocolate Cupcakes

I kind of really like cupcakes. They aren't as huge as a cake, but not too small to think that you're not getting enough flavor.
And the fact that I got to use the new Kitchen Aid that I (my mom) got for Valentines was pretty spectacular :)



And I figured out that I love photographing with candles. It's the best!

Blog Button!

I have been wondering how to make a blog button for a while. I just couldn't do it! I realized that lots of other bloggers probably had the same problem, and so I just googled it. This is the link that I found and it was so easy to understand!
If you just want to know how to make the code for the button, go here.

Here's my new button:

Sugar Cookies

No recipe today. Just a simple sugar cookie, some frosting, and a little pixie dust. Okay, maybe not pixie dust, but something better!

SPRINKLES.



I took some average sugar cookies. Nothing special. I added frosting. Then sprinkle the colored sugar on baby! It gives a special flavor with the frosting and a cool look!

Business Card!

I may be going to a utah blogger thingy on Wednesday...SO I was thinking that I needed some business cards. Just in case!

“I am the last leaf on the tree, and the wind is blowing.” ― Gordon B. Hinckley

This week I want to remember Gordon B. Hinckley. When I was born up til a few years ago he was the president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. In memory of him I will be making a handout a day from his profound quotes.

Today's quote it "I am the last leaf on the tree, and the wind is blowing."
I think that this is a great quote because it's true. We are the only church that is true, and through our trials we may be the only one who knows the truth. We need to hold on and strong through adversity.
