Weekend Wrap Up....

Where did the weekend go? Oh yeah....I was busier than a hive of bees!!!  I didn't even get a chance to post yesterday...that is how busy I was. What was I doing?? I am glad you asked!

I'll give you a involved turning my oven on with the temps here in the South hovering around 105 degree, lots of flour, sugar, and icing all for a special friend on her special day.

Okay, I'll just go ahead and tell you....I was making this!!

One of my teacher-friends got married yesterday and she asked me to make her wedding cake. Before I became a teacher I had my own cake design business, called PattiCakes. I still bake cakes for friends form time to time, but teaching takes up so much of my time, and making cakes is very time consuming too, so I only do it for friends.

Here are a few pictures of the cake in-progress.....

I always share with my students that I used to be a baker..and bring them samples of different treats throughout the year. They love it and always ask me to make and bring in stuff. We are a C.A.T.C.H. school so we limit the sweets..but every once in a while it is a great treat for my students..their favorites are my brownies and red velvet cupcakes!

My giveaway ended yesterday and I was excited to pick a winner. Check out the post HERE to find out who won.

Finally, I have been reading up on starting my TpT store. I am not real creative, but I am going to give it a shot..I am going to start with some items for Social favorite subject.  Keep your eyes peels (one on my favorite idioms to talk about with my students)...for a post about the launch of my TpT store.

Well I am off to read some more blogs and brainstorm ideas for TpT....enjoy the rest of your weekend!!
