Cake Balls

I found a great recipe for Cake Balls from Mommy's Kitchen blog here:

They are awesome and she gives you step by step on how to make them, I made Red Velvet Cake mixed with 1 can of cream cheese frosting and Dipped some in White Chocolate and Milk Chocolate....One tip, make sure your cake balls are completely frozen before dipping, it makes it much easier...I don't have a picture but there is one on Mommy's blog....I should have taken a picture of the ones I made but they didn't last long, they were a hit for Thanksgiving!

Now, go on over and see her picture and recipe and make some of these awesome little Cake Balls.....and she also has other great recipes too...

I am thankful for the internet and phones to stay in touch....
Love to all

Mail Art Envie (Click TO Enlarge)
Print by Sharon(Please Click To Enlarge)

Can You say "Excited"......I can hardly contain myself, I got this awesome mail art today from Sharon, her blog is here:

She is an awesome artist that I admire so much...I have enjoyed seeing all of her art and hoping to one day be able to own a piece of her art....SO, she had asked people to send her paper napkins of different kinds and to send a stamped, address envie and she would send back napkins..I sent a couple and told her I didn't want any in return cause I just can not do those napkins justice like she can......

Well, being the super nice person she is, she sent me Mail Art!!
And, she sent me a print of one of her orginal paintings featuring the "SISTERS", I have followed her creation of the Sisters and love all of them....
I am hoping that one day she will help the Sisters go to the beach!

The envie is a piece of Art by itself and I will be putting it in an album and I am going to frame my print...

Sharon, I can't thank you enough, you are truely a kind soul!

If you haven't been already, click over to her blog and see why I love all that she does.......
