Note to self..keep it simple!

Okay, I admit it. I tend not to keep projects simple in my life. THERE I said it. There are few projects that I stop at the right point. Sure sometimes over the top is perfect and cute, but a lot of times sweet and simple are even better.

Case in point…

A few years ago, I decided to make 4th of July T-shirts for my kids.  I cut out an outline of the US and then stitched the words “happy birthday” on them. They turned out so cute..and were so simple. Take a look:

See..cute and simple:

This year I decided to try that idea again…but I didn’t stop. I wish I would have stuck with the original one line “happy birthday”.  At least he loves it. That really is after all, all that matters.
I made the shirt using the US map pillow template and just sized it down.  Worked great.
What do you think…how would you improve it?  Do you tend to keep things simple?

dress a cupcake in 3 ways {free download}

One of the easiest party foods ever to make are cupcakes..which make them a perfect little treat for the 4th of July.  The thing I love about cupcakes is that you can dress them up or down as much as you would like!
I had a good time playing around while putting these together…enjoy!
1-make cupcakes in a jar
For mine, I simply cut 2 cupcakes in half, loaded frosting in between each layer and added sprinkles to make it more festive. I finished it off with a little felt and yarn and a tag from the free download today!
2-Simply put it in a cupcake wrapper.
Again, these are free downloads, but simply glue or tape the wrapper and place the cupcake in it..add any of the labels to finish it off!
3-add some fun to it.
In addition to the wrappers, I put a few toothpicks behind these stars, and I think it added just a bit of whimsy to the top of the cupcake.
So for the fourth, I decided to whip up a little download for you…a little cupcake downlaod!
Remember free downloads are for followers are for Kiki Creates only. (takes just a second on the sidebar, thanks!)
Find the free pdf download HERE…and go get cooking away! These are a great project for little kids to help out on.
Have a happy day and we’ll see you tomorrow.
