junk-n-trunk show

this saturday october 6th if you are looking for something fun to do why not take a scenic drive to savanna, illinois for the junk-n-trunk craft vendor and flea market fair
should be loads of fun for the whole family on a beautiful fall day! i baked lots of cookies to sell and will have some of my coolest painted chairs, and vintage/antique items for sale. my daughter whipped up some cute as ever hair clips with the most adorable ribbons and designs. little Evelyn Liliana loved a couple of them so much she ran off yelling mine! and hid them from her mommy before they could be packed up for the show! she picked her faves which was all of them but only got away with a couple. not to worry there are plenty for everyone.
hope to see you there. :)

st patricks day cupcakes

there are many favorite recipes that i enjoy. there is never enough time to cook when i have so many other interests in life! so usually i just throw a few things together and eat on the run. That's an aries for you!

be sure to add Fat Cupcakes to your facebook pages-my specialty is Ball canning jar spice cakes. easy to send by mail in the USA. to order please message me!

pinterest seems to be the hottest new spot to find super delicious recipes and betty crocker...

i have a couple photos of food here made quick and easily as snacks however like i said above the food recipes are on pinterest. i would like to add some of my favorites here when i can.

i love baking. it doesnt always turn out pretty but does taste pretty good. usually... ;). with a little more ummmm ok possibly a lot more practice i hope to have some photo worthy posting cupcakes
to show off here in the near future!!

even found some St. Patty's day decor to top my next big batch of cupcakes with. so in the next week is cupcake pictures.

now that i have mentioned it, well let's just hope for no major disasters, and that they turn out edible and of course look good enough to showcase!

wish me luck!

you know that old saying luck o the irish be with you? well i am part irish and my luck held out today. me and my sweet littl e 2 year old grand daughter Evelyn Liliana made chocolate cake. at first she ran off with the bag of cake mix and i followed her. i pictured her ripping open the powder mix all through the hallway and spending the day cleaning up the wood floor but alas! that did not happen.
we were in luck and continued making our cake.

(she helped by watching fascinated to see how we turned stuff into chocolate cake -she really wanted to hold the eggs when we started but i decided more against that than for it-;))

all said and done we were both pretty happy with the results of our hard work.

new opportunities arise when you follow your dreams!

there are several things as i follow my dreams that are beginning to take shape,
planning a neighborhood green space to improve an empty city lot in my neighborhood,
 publishing an inspirational book of with my photography work, painting furniture,
and seeing my DonatePaint project come to life.
 There are many other things i am also working on like the women painting chairs club which helps bring people together to meet new friends and accomplish any project they may have
the first project will be helping pack a home for a new friend 
who is moving and this summer
hopefully even painting chairs etc... ;)
these are the main ones for now.

when we believe in ourselves and things we like to do
and work towards our goals
things just seem to fall into place.

i wish each of you the best of luck in following your dreams as well.

if you are interested in any of the above projects please ask me for more details!

just found some wonderful amazing people who offered me a plan to have fun, travel and enjoy life and get paid for it! thank you Gail, Jim, Pam and everyone for helping make my dreams possible! It is always exciting to follow your dreams and see the possibilities open up to you so they may come true. if anyone else would like to know how to enjoy life and follow their dreams please ask me!

No Job Doesn't Mean I am Dead

it is time to evaluate your friends family and life very closely when you find yourself without a job.
what is most important to you?
have your friends and family been there for you and offered any sort of help or have they abandoned you?
technically there is a book for that called toxic parents. this also works with friends. weed out the bad ones who are not there for you
make room for the ones who are.

please also see

You will be surprised at just how many actually act as if you are gone forever while not working.
 please check out my blog page. thanks!

i love creating web pages and new ideas for fun things to do that will connect people. today i founded and created the Women Painting Chairs Club on and on Facebook

it is a comically described club for women designed to support each other and get those little projects completed that pile up around the house like the miscellaneous broken down desk,
nightstand or chair that we see great beauty in if we could just get it painted!

 please join me there as we follow a fun journey of meeting new friends, have new adventures and see how our adopchairs go! ;) thank you so much for your support. You are what makes it all possible!
