Show and Tell Monday ~~~ and the Winner IS....

Hi everyone,, hope ya'll had a great weekend! I have been busy working on my new line of dessert pillows called "sweet dreams bakery". But I needed to take care of some very important business :) The winner of my 100th post blog contest. I had 31 entries... (thank you all!) and my dear friend Pat was over and drew the lucky winner from the hat for me. And as you can see,, it was Helene from Southern California. YAY!!! I sent you my email Helene, send me your address and I will get this pink cupcake pillow out to you right away.

I have been shopping for ingredients for my new creations. Lots of sweet icings and trims. Brown satins for chocolate, red velvet for strawberrys and lots of yummy trims. I have several cut out and will be done very soon. I did get an ice cream cone pillow complete to show you today. So stay sweet and until next time...... hugs, gail

This is a brilliant idea. I absolutely adore that pink cupcake in your avatar. I also LOVE the Ice Cream cone. So darn cute.

I'm so glad you are branching out. You are amazingly creative and I just know you are going to make some soft sweet desserts. Can't wait to see them. I've got my eye on that pink cupcake pillow!
