Exciting Changes!

Hello friends!!
I am sad to say that I will not be keeping up on my blog for a while.
I am not able to make the time for it while also having a full time and part time job as well as my shop!
I am going to focus my extra time into creating new items for my shop as well as playing with my little boy and spending time with the hubs!!!!

I do want you to know that I have officially CHANGED MY NAME!
I am now

So Sew Whimsy

I am so excited about this change and have wanted to do it for a while now :)
When I do start my blog again it will be through wordpress at sosewwhimsy.net

Currently I have a shop on etsy which I am in the process of switching over to bigcartel.
I am hoping to have all of my items moved over there soon. Until then, you can continue to order from my etsy shop!

Love you all and thanks for stickin with me through all these changes!!

Takin' a break

Dear friends,
I'm so sorry I haven't been keeping up on posts lately!
I have started a new job and am feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment!!
My shop is still open, though!

So stop by and remember, if you see an item that you like but have a different fabric in mind {so long as I can order it or buy it at one of my local shops} I am happy to customize for you!!

I am also getting ready to add some super cute owl key chains,
cabochon rings and bobby pins
and camera straps come August
{along with more choices for the items I currently have}
so stay tuned!

Until next time, I will leave you with a super cute birthday party idea!
My nieces birthday is July 3rd so we always celebrate with fireworks!
The blackboard has instructions on making your own Italian sodas!
The jars are filled with strawberry shortcake!

Flavorful Fridays: Cupcakes


I like cupcakes.
Okay, I love cupcakes!
I like to make them for every occasion!
Mostly birthdays ;}
Lemon and carrot cupcakes {from the box} used to be my favorite kind to make.
Now....I have a new cupcake recipe book and I love making them even more!

My mom bought a copy of this book for herself, me and my sister.
We've all had the book for at least 2 or 3 months and a couple of weeks ago, I was the first to finally use it!
I have no idea why I waited so long!
Okay, it was because I was very intimidated since I had never baked anything from scratch!
I had looked through the entire book before and new that, eventually, when I finally decided to bake something, it would be the Banana Cupcakes!
They taste simply devine!
I want to bake and eat them everyday.
They are that fabulous!
I chose a banana frosting with toasted coconut and pecans to top it off!
I had never made my own frosting before either and I think it turned out pretty well ;}
{Fyi-my frosting was a little runny because I added extra milk since it was too thick at first}
The frosting recipe made so much that I decided that I better make another batch of cupcakes {the frosting thickened up a little by this time} but wanted to try something different so I searched the list of cupcakes that they recommend to go with the frosting I already made.

Oatmeal raisin cupcakes made the top of the list for me!
They are, after all, my favorite type of cookie!
They were amazing!
Everyone loved them!
Including my husband who is not much of a sweets guy.
Which made it even more exciting and worth the extra time spent to make them
{and it actually was a ton easier and faster than I thought it would be!}

Next up?
I think I'll make some cheesecake cupcakes for husband since that's his favorite dessert!

Whimsy Wednesday

Someone once told me
that this is the place
where everything's better
and everything's safe.
