Hi, Welcome To My Blog

I love various different types of crafts and have had a dabble at most over the years, some with greater success than others. I believe that apart from loving and giving, being creative is the next most important thing to do. There is something about being creative that taps into something deep within us that makes us feel good with the world. But then we were made in the image of God, God The Creator... so I guess being creative will be second nature to us if we allow. The problem is that many people will not have a go because they make the mistake of measuring themselves against others... and that is just not a good thing to do. I create because I like to create, not because I have to impress anyone else or be better than anyone else. I created this blog with a lot of help from my son-in-law, as a personal scrap book that I am happy to share with others if they wish to take a look.... Enjoy <><

Bouquet of Iced Cup Cakes

My daughter had seen a bouquet of flowers which were iced cup cakes. So this was my first attempt at re-creating it.  I made a shallow gold round box which I lined with tissue paper and then iced some cup cakes I had baked using a flower tube and cut marshmallows.  If you fancy having a go you can see tutorials on You Tube, which is what I did.  I need another go to practice I think.


  1. WOW!!! doesn't look like you need any more practice - this is just gorgeous!!

  2. Wow! I thought those were real flowers! They're almost too beautiful to eat. :)
