a twirly swirly birthday

Each month at work we have a little celebration for the lovely ladies who had a birthday that month.  Everyone has someone they are assigned to, and as such is in charge of a birthday treat and a card.  I was assigned a March birthday and I am taking my duties very seriously :)

As always, I was happy for an excuse to make a birthday card.  I think this one is particularly cute if I don’t say so myself!

As for the birthday treat, I wanted to try my hand at cupcakes.  I’ve made cupcakes before, but in terms of decorating I’ve generally slapped some icing on the top, sprinkled a few sprinkles and was done.  This time I wanted to make the pretty kind!  You know, the ones with the twirly, pretty-looking icing?  Those ones.

I looked around online for a bit and found a great recipe and video tutorial about how to decorate cupcakes.  If you’re interested, check it out here!

Aren’t they b-e-a-utiful?

And there you have it.   Happy birthday to all you March birthdays!

happy birfday!

On Sunday, my nephew turns 3.  How did that happen??!  My husband and I started dating about a month before he was born, so he continues to be a visual representation of how long we have been together.  At risk of sounding like a biased auntie… (ah, who am I kidding?!) he is the brightest, cutest, creativest little boy ever!  I made this card for him to go along with his present.  Card number 2 of my year of handmade cards!  (Number 1 was for my sister-in-law, but I forgot to take a picture.  Whoops.)

Happy birthday to my sweet little nephew!
