Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree...

DH saw this Christmas tree and he dragged me into the shop yesterday. It caught my attention immediately. We already have one Christmas tree at home but I can't let this one go .... lol..
This year I have a color- theme for our Christmas tree. I didn't use multi color ornaments. This year is all white lights and purple-silver ornaments.

Mad about sugar paste

What is sugar paste??

Sugar paste is used for making all kinds of fancy and edible decorations, such as flowers, ribbons, bows, leaves, and it can be molded into figurines, trees, and animals too. Sugar paste or gum paste is really a pliable "sugar dough". It can be tinted, painted on or dusted with decorating dusts.

I did my own sugar paste and I sometimes used them as a toppers on my cupcakes.

I have just finished making a total of 750 pieces of sugar paste flower for someone.

A Wedding Wish ( to the newly wed!)
May God richly bless you both as you begin your life as one.
May He give you all the things that it takes to make a successful marriage—

Health & Happiness--so you can learn to have fun with each other.
Pain & Sadness--so you can learn to comfort each other.

Trials & Tribulations--so you can learn to rely on each other.
Peace & Comfort--so you can learn to be closer to each other.

Weakness--so you can learn to need each other.
Strength--so you can learn to encourage each other.

To endure all these things and to be what the other needs,
May God give you wisdom and grace
May your bond of love be made stronger
With everything you face.

And speaking of wedding cupcakes..

The gingerbread man (Part 2)

The little old woman and little old man ran after the gingerbread man. 'Stop! Stop!' they yelled.The gingerbread man did not look back. He ran on saying, 'Run, run as fast as you can! You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man!'

Down the lane he sped when he came to a pig. 'Stop! Stop! I would like to eat you," shouted the pig. The gingerbread man was too fast. He ran on saying
"Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man.

A little further on he met a cow. 'Stop! Stop! little man,' called the hungry cow, 'I want to eat you.' Again the gingerbread man was too fast. He sped on down the road saying, "Run, run as fast as you can. You can't catch me, I'm the gingerbread man.".... (to be continue)

Fresh from the oven. It's the Gingerbread man, again???
oh yeah... my nieces love them and I am totally obsessed making them lately.

Gingerbread Man

Once upon a time a little old woman and a little old man lived in a cottage……… The little old woman and little old man were very hungry and wanted to eat the gingerbread man. As soon as he was cooked, the little old woman opened the oven door. The gingerbread man jumped out of the tin and ran out of the open window shouting, ‘Don’t eat me!’……..

Fan program for your wedding??

custom ~

Wedding programs are wonderful keepsake to your guests. Booklet style programs are the most common we've seen. Just look at the photos above, it's a fan shape wedding program (i'm inspired, again!). Pretty unique, huh. So if you are D.I.Y your own program, try to make fan-shaped programs. Just googled this tag for the template.
