I finally got the tutorial up! I hate that I didn't get to post it before Valentine's Day (stupid laptop!) but better late than never :D It's so adorable that I still have mine hanging up on the mantle. Even though it's meant for Vday, it's so pretty every day and it makes me smile! You can click the yellow "DIY" link in the navigation bar above to take you to the step by step tutorial. Oh and I have to give credit to the fabulous Bake It Pretty. I used their retro cupcake ornament tutorial as the inspiration for my garland!

These little guys are SO cute and their crafting possibilities are endless! I am definitely going to be making these for Xmas this year! I think I want to do a sweets themed tree :D

In other news, I'm still working on finishing my blog redesign. It's a lot of work! I spent most of yesterday watching movies and cursing html codes LOL. I also designed all the new buttons and illustrations you see on the header and sidebars. WHEW! The movies really helped the time go by though. I watched Office Space and it's even funnier to me now that I've worked around people like that. The situation where two different bosses tell him about his missing cover sheet or whatever is SO my job...and it's SO annoying :P Anyway, I hope you guys like the changes!! I hope to be done this week and I'll post about all the new features then :) I hope you're having a restful Sunday!

AJ -- I taught myself and you can too! There are so many tutorials on the web out just have to dive in and learn a long the way. I think it's taken me a few years to get where I'm at now and I' still learning every day :D
