HOMEADE GLAZED DONUT ROUNDS!!

This recipe comes from www.leannebakes.blogspot.com .  Tell me one person who doesn't like a warm, fresh donut first thing in the morning???    Anyone??   Anyone??  I did'nt think so!!  Make a few dozen of these and enjoy them with your morning coffee or juice!






A few months ago my cousin had a fiesta-themed baby shower, and we got to make some really delicious desserts. One was lime cupcakes, which were great, but the other was churros.

MAKE YOUR OWN PAPER ROSES!

This diy comes from www.ellinee.com .  This would/could be adaptable for all sorts of flowers (I'm thinking something in the line of poinsetta for Chrsitmas time). Good luch and happy crafting!

I love this rose and am quite giddy about sharing paper rose inspirations for weddings, gifts and decor in the coming weeks. Give it a try! ~Lia
