Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas From the Watsons!
I am still trying to get a button up for bracelets- hopefully it will work tonight- if you want to buy a peacepal bracelet- they are great for those 5$ gifts and mean so much more than a bag full of toys from all a dollar- you are buying a child a net that will save their life!
What a great gift (and fashionable too! )

These fun Ideas are from Tip Junkie-

Yeah! The first of December! We are starting our advent calender tonight and I am so excited! The real first day of advent was last sunday but We do it the first of Dec. This year I put a little more effort into it- last year we just drew stuff out of a box the girls had decorated which was still fantastic-but this year I got some inspiration and made a fun little banner they pick out of each
day-I will post picts soon- Here are a few of our adventures to come...

Hot Coca and read the GRINCH by the fireplace
Write a holiday Letter of cheer to a missionary and a solider
Christmas Confetti Bath
Spread Holiday CHEER- Everywhere! ( this is so fun- you make fun little notes of joy and put them all over town- on doors, car windows etc..)
Catch snowflakes on your tongue
Take presents to Primary Childrens (We do this every year since Bellas Heart Surgery)
Take food to shelter
Make salt dough ornaments
Build a snow fort
Christmas rock elves
make homemade marshmallows
make a popcorn garland for woodland friends
Write down Christ centered goals for the coming year
Sleep under Christmas Tree ( much anticipation for this one this year!!)

I love the Christmas season!

Ok on to Whimsy Business...

If your Holiday includes Whimsy Cupcake deliciousness- Order ASAP!!!
We are only taking a handful of orders this season
And since we love to spread cheer ourselves when you order we are throwing in extra cupcakes- depending on the size of your order it is anywhere from a half dozen to two dozen!
and we have the cutest boxes that are just delightful to give as gifts!!!
MeRry HOlidays!!

Merci, Gracias, Obrigado, Dankie, Thanks!!!

The Bake sale was a complete success thanks to you guys! Thanks so much to everyone who came and for your support! You have made two little girls extremely giddy with smiles from ear to ear! They made 143$! That is 29 mosquito nets and 29 kids you guys helped out!


If you weren't able to get a bracelet and want one- let us know- they would make great Christmas presents- especially those white elephants you spend 5$ on- buy a child a mosquito net! I am going to try and get a button up on the blog so you can get them anytime you want!

Friday NOV 12th
2:oo - 4:00 pm
at Kalani's home
( if you want to come and need directions email me-

SO ...what's the deal?

For our main service project this school year our family is a part of Project Peacepals and earning money for mosquito nets for the kids in Ghana and Togo Africa to help
"Stamp out Malaria"
Bella and Gracie will be selling WHIMSY cupcakes- 1.50$ ( minis ) and hot cocoa- 0.50 and peace pal bracelets 5$ -( made by fair trade project in peru- sanyork and they are really nice! ) They have made a goal to sell 100 bracelets by April. They are also planning a bikathon for spring and a couple other events but come get one this week!
If you can't come but want a bracelet- let us know
ALL the money raised goes towards the mosquito nets.

By the time you read this one child in Africa has died from Malaria
A child dies from Malaria in Africa every 30 seconds
The single MOST effective means of prevention is a Mosquito net
and they are 5$!!

For five dollars you could help save a life..

This is what the bracelets look like- they are really cute and very well made!

if you are planning on coming and have a request- let us know!

If you buy a bracelet you get 3 FREE cupcakes!!! :) It is a win win!
See Ya There!!

Here is her debut!!! :) She is just so wonderful!!! She is so much fun and the kids are absolutely OVER THE MOON about her ( as well as her parents!) Here are a few shots- I am sure there will be many more to come! :)

And what is it about little girls that makes me go craft crazy??? Now I just want to make a million things! So these are one of my many new obsessions- ruffle legs!!! My friend gave me the idea and now my brain will not stop thinking of all the possibillities- like now I am figuring out how to make them for my older girls- and they look so cute on!!!

With MUCH regret!!!

We have tried to put this off AS LONG as possible and really don't want to do it at all!!! Most all of our supplies- butter, sugar, flour, madagasscar vanilla, boxes, liners etc.. have gone up-at least 30% so as much as we do not want to raise prices we have to and it is with MUCH regret!!!! We are also offering standard size cupcakes too- you could always get them but now they are officially on the menu! If you have already made an order- no worries your price is the old one but any orders made today and on have the new prices-
2 dozen minis- 33$ plus tax

1 dozen JUMBOS- 33$ plus tax
at least twice as much cake as standard

1 dozen Standard- 26$ plus tax

We will have our fall/winter menu up soon and there are LOTS of yummy flavors!!!

Garden Delights!

Garden Patch Cakelet Pan
( yes I said cakelet)

We have had many birthday celebrations around here and it has been so fun! Gracie wanted a sandcastle cake for her party and it turned out really cute! when I load up picts I will share but it had lots of cookie sand, white chocolate sea shells and ice cream cones for towers! She also wanted to take some of these veggie cakelets to another little party ( she has had a few!!) and I had to share because I LOVE lOVE lOVE this pan!!! They are so delightful and perfect for spring and summer parties! You could make them out of zucchini cake to boot! I added crushed oreos for dirt and they were so fun!!! ( no mine did not look THIS great but they still passed- just no picts :)

Here is a recipe from all recipes that looks pretty good! I added some side notes to make it healthier ( of course) but still rather yummy!


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour ( can also use wonder flour mix)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar ( or agave)
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vegetable oil ( or applesauce)
  • 3 cups grated zucchini
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Sift together flour, salt, soda, cinnamon, baking powder.
  3. Beat eggs. Add and mix well sugar, vanilla, and oil. Add zucchini to egg mixture. Add dry ingredients, mixing well. Stir in nuts if desired. Pour into 2 ungreased loaf pans.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 1 hour.
I have also tried some with added lemon zest and it is equally fabulous ! I am sure there is no shortage of zucchini out there!

Ruffled Streamers???

OK this party had ALL the Fixins! WHAT A FUN PARTY!!! I think the twins had fun too as you can see! There were so many little details that stood out about this party- she thought of everything!! BUT I LOvED the ruffled streamers~ and so easy! Tutorial HERE from shelley at How does she.. they just add that extra little touch for a sweet little girls party, or shower or whatever!!!

Here she layered them behind the banner- LOve that lOok!

I am in party mode around here since Gracies 5th birthday is in August! SHe wants a water party so it will be a bit different from this one but I may have to throw in a touch of this here and there. - Can't resist! We are taking picts soon for her invite- kind of a tradition now. I am thinking of a swim shoot with a vintage swim cap and swim suit.. you know the flowery ones like this..

She and I are both so excited!!! Can't WAit!

Ps.. If you haven't hung around long enough to listen the the last of the playlist skip down and take a listen to Mr. Greg Laswell- Schulyer Fisk, Kate bush to name a few- all very fantastic! Infact I recommend shuffle- you get a little taste of it all- quite the marvelous eclectic mix! I may be biased but I think OUR cupcakes AND playlist are superb and yes even unrivaled! :) like I said I may be a little biased ( but they are...)
