Swapping Goodness and The Glitter Award

I was so excited when I received my Sweet Treats and Roses Recipe Book yesterday. The book is so beautiful, the artwork and recipes are wonderful. I have looked through it at least four times so far. This is an amazing collaboration of artistic talent. A big thank you to all who participated and especially to Karla and Beth for organizing, making the unique covers, assembling, mailing and just making sure everything ran smoothly. This was an enormous undertaking for them an much appreciated. It was fun seeing how they assembled the books, gave us sneak peeks of beautiful covers and some of the recipes. Thank you again to both of you.

Here is the picture of my Yummy book. I love the Chocolate cupcake on the cover.

I have sparkled someones day. My sweet friend over at Catiean & Company has passed this award on to me. Thank you Catie. The award was originally made by Barbara from 123lavendarlollipoplane I will have a hard time choosing so I would like to give this award to all the lovely blogs I visit everyday. You all sparkle my day and make me feel happy.

The recipe book looks wonderful! Thank you for the comment on the little blue necklace. I had so much fun making it for her. I think it would be fun to make jewelry just for statues!
Hope you're having a Beautiful Weekend!
