I had spotted a tutorial from the Bakerella blog awhile ago about Coraline-inspired cookies and had favorited the link, knowing that sometime I would use it - and today's the day!
Feast your eyes upon the cuteness that is, my birthday button cookies!
They are the cutest little bites of sugar cookie goodness!
Bakerella used peanut butter cookies for their buttons. I'm not a big fan of PB cookies, so I improvised and made mine out of sugar cookie dough. I took it a couple steps further and put sugar on top and colored the dough pink. SUPER CUTE!
Super duper cute!

Here's where we're going:
Day one: Richard's Pizza, a local pizza joint that we just recently discovered. It's super delicious.
Day two: Donatos, yum, Donatos. Those little pieces of pizza goodness.
Day three: LaRosa's, a Cincinnati tradition. I heart LaRosa's big big big time. If you have never had LaRosa's then you're seriously missing out.
Day four: Papa John's delivered to home. Thought we could use a night off from going out!
Day five: Dewey's Pizza, my all-time favorite pizza, to celebrate the day of my birth!
Yay! And a big hooray for not having to cook for five days! I hope we don't gain 20 gazillion pounds from this grand plan of ours! We'll have to go on a five-day salad plan after this, ha!

She's compiled some really neato things on a camping theme! Here's what she has to say:
"I love camping! The sights. The sounds. The smells. The food. It doesn't get any better than a weekend away from it all. Since camping season is right around the corner, I thought it'd make a perfect Etsy Favorites Wednesday. Lucky for me, Wendy is once again allowing me the privilege of sharing my finds!
Camper Magnet - I stumbled across this magnet set purely by accident, but I think they'd be a great thing to have. Perhaps to post our camping schedule on the refrigerator?
Camping play set - I love toys that promote using your imagination. I think BB, Billy and I could have a lot of fun 'camping' with this set when we can't get out and do the real thing.
Camping sweatshirt - I have a camping sweatshirt. A ratty, super comfortable sweatshirt from college that I absolutely refuse to throw away. Unfortunately the only place I can get away with wearing it is around a campfire. So, I think BB needs a 'camping' shirt, too.
Camper stamp - Now that I'm finding a balance between work and home, I'm finding bits of time here and there to craft again. I could use this little stamp on cards, in scrapbooks, in our camping journal, etc., etc., etc.
Play s'mores - Finally, what camping trip would be complete without s'mores? None. These aren't edible (drat!), but they'd be fun to play with!"

Look what I made for my pal, a gal who loves clovers!
Clover porcelain earrings - I like the shape of these and their warm color.
Green window pillow - I love this. A lot.
Green clover buttons - I think these would look lovely as embellishments to a cardigan sweater or a t-shirt.
Clover and photo keychain - So cute!
Clover letterpress cards - I'm drawn to repeated design like this.

However, I'm thinking we're turning a corner, that everyone is feeling better and the weather is getting better. I think that our attitudes are changing. We're having fun again, I've stopped getting annoyed at everyone and the girls have stopped screaming at each other. Things are on the up and up.

This weekend I bought the most awesome flowers! Tulips! They were only $2.25 a bundle too! Just plain ol' tulips, but I am telling you, I will seriously cry when they wilt and I have to throw them away. They are gorgeous. I took pictures!
