Sweet Lemon Scrolls

When life hands you as many lemons as I’ve got at the moment, then you’ve really got to use your imagination with how you use them.

Pumpkin Cupcakes and an unintentional week off

I’m usually one of those annoying positive types.  I try to find positives in everything, and because of that (the law of attraction thing), I believe my life is surrounded by mostly postive things. However, this last 7 days was different, it was as though everything I touched turned to coal, everywhere I looked somethingContinue reading “Pumpkin Cupcakes and an unintentional week off”
