Babies... babies... babies

One of my good friends is throwing a baby shower this weekend and asked me to make some cookies for her to use as party favors. The color scheme of the baby room is pink and green so those were also the theme for the cookies. I tweaked the cookie recipe a bit so I am excited to hear how they taste!

Looking forward to making many more "baby-themed" cookies 
for my friends at work who are expecting! I even
bought special cookie cutters. :)

Remembering 9-11

Wow, it has been forever since I have posted something on here. My apologies... I spent the last week in July and the first week in August studying abroad in England. It was the most amazing learning experience I have ever had and I'm so eager to go back! Not too long after I returned it was time to start back teaching, as well as, graduate school. Therefore... my life has been CRAZY! Here are a few pictures from my trip:

So what's new with Award Inspirations? I have been busy making 70+ keychains for birthday gifts!!! I might possibly be getting another order from a local daycare. :) This has been a lot of fun and gives me a break from doing work! (woo hoo!)

And... this weekend my friend Heather is having a Remembering 9-11 party and asked me to make something creative. With limited time these days I decided to try my hand at making an American Flag out of cupcakes.  Here's how it turned out:

I even got to use some of the new edible glitter I got at a tea shop in England!

I hope everyone takes some time this weekend to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you. Many people lost the ones they love in this tragic event. It's a day we will never forget.

God Bless the USA!
