On Friday I decided to do a little crafting and made this cute little catnip toy for the Poe Cat. (The idea came from marthastewart.com) The Poe Cat loves him some catnip!
I also made this fun ribbon wreath for our front door. I wanted to do pink and green, but for the husband's sake I left out the pink.
I went outside to take a few snowy pictures on Saturday! It was a quick break from all the online shopping I was doing. I ordered some great stationery from Expressionery. They're having a 30% off site-wide sale. Even better, I got it 40% off instead by using coupon code MSLFEB from the February issue of Martha Stewart Living! I just love personalized stationery and you can't beat 40% off! I definitely recommend stopping by their site!
The trees looked so pretty!
Yesterday was the husband's birthday so I made him a cake. Nicholas loves chocolate so I used the recipe on the back of the Hershey's cocoa box. I highly recommend this recipe...it's the only one I ever use for chocolate cakes and frosting! Since I couldn't get out to the store I had to make do with what we had in the pantry. I didn't have enough cocoa to make chocolate frosting, but we had some key lime juice in the fridge so I decided on chocolate cake with key lime frosting. (Hubs and I love Godiva's key lime truffles so I figured a cake with the same flavor combo would work out well). It turned out great! Definitely not my best decorating job though! Oh well, it still tasted yummy!
