Coming Soon

As many of you know, my mom is a phenomenal cake decorator. She outdoes herself again and again and each week I can hardly wait to check her "What's New" page on her site.
She has created (with my initial help, I might add :-0) a truly unique way to decorate some of her cakes and she is creating a DVD to share this technique, along with a few other tips and tricks. When she was visiting for the birth of Ethan, she did two free demos for some friends here...a few I think are actually using what they learned! I know I am! (remember the zebra cake I begged y'all to go vote for? I won!)
These DVD's will be on sale around the middle of April for $25, including S&H. I am sure I will do another post then so you know it is time.
It kills me to see all the fabulous cakes she makes for others, with me stuck here in Omaha...a thousand miles too far for her to create cakes for her favorite grandson's birthdays (though she makes them cakes when we visit, b.days or not).
Maybe, just maybe, if you are really lucky, she will give one away on my blog...but you will have to ask her really nicely and add a cherry on top to see.

13 Words to brighten my day:

HI Jess! I totally want to order one of your mom's DVDs! I have been looking for a way to find out how do decorate cakes before Lily's first birthday this summer. Also, I mention to my hubby that she was going to be selling the DVDs and the business side of him wants me to ask if she needs someone to design a cover or any marketing material or business cards (he's an outstanding graphic designer). Gimme a holla!

Though I am relativity new to blogging, I am loving all my new friends.

I am giving away my first EVER BLOG PRIZE.
I own a gift basket business and it is the most requested gift over the last 15 years.

From the comments I have already received, appears to be something a little different and something anyone could use. I have been so touched by the comments that I
have decided to give 2 boxes . They will be the $100 deluxe size.
I really do want to bless people!!! I want my blog to encourage others.

I have decided that giving is life at its BEST. The drawing will be Saturday!
