Dr Pepper Anyone?


As the story goes, it was her friend’s birthday party and she decided to surprise her with a cake. It was sooooo beautifully done, for an amateur, that the waitress at the restaurant chided them for having brought the bottle in and asked it to be put away, until it was cut open. Happy Birthday, yes it is a cake. 

I have featured Ms Jenny previously and her beautiful work, she is the awesome creator of Le Petit Pie and many amazing creative things. If you would like to see more of her work or would like to contact her regarding her pies, they are delicious, trust me, hop on to Facebook: LePetitPie.

My Sister, The Designer


Did you really think I was the only talented one in the family? Think again, so is my sister and, my niece but let's talk about my sister.

She lives in Switzerland, drove to Luxembourg for Christmas to visit with family. In between the fun, three bridesmaids dresses were commissioned. She takes their measurements, drives back to Switzerland and makes the dresses. They were mailed back two weeks ago and to my sister's amazement, they fit to precision with only minor alterations were needed. Mind you, no fitting was ever done. Fast forward past weekend, there they were, smiling and looking gorgeous at their friend's wedding. Moi?! I am one proud sister. In case you wonder where we learned the skill from, our mother.

The Great Graduation Cap Idea


It is that time of the year again: graduation. The time when you go wild and nuts about "yes I did it" moment. The time when you think about traveling the world over, learn about other cultures, perhaps move to a new city and make new friends. It is graduation, the right of passage of I am on my own now, welcome to adulthood. It is graduation, the time you line up in formation with all your classmates, walk across the podium to get that coveted piece of paper, your diploma and hear the roar in the audience. It is graduation, the time to say goodbye to roommates and friends, be excited about your new stage of your life, begin anew and say, let the party begin.

And then there is the cap. I never understood the fascination with cap decoration. Perhaps, it is to explore and share your inner creativity, a competition of sorts between the graduates to see who comes up with the best cap idea; whatever it is, it is fun, entertaining. Mine was plain and boring.

A friend of mine forwarded me a picture of her niece's graduation cap and I thought I would share. She did a pretty good job, a meticulous one I may add. It conveys a story. It doesn't take a genius to know what her major was, teaching is a work of heart. Yes indeed. I love it!
