I decided to organize my daughter's toys so I went to the Dollar Tree and bought 30 storage boxes (about the size of a shoe box) and filled them with her toys. I printed out 3 inch logos of each toy and used packaging tape to tape them to the front of the box. Then I put them on the top shelf in her bedroom closet. Now she knows where each type of toy is at any given time. Love it!

I bought a glass desk several months ago at Walmart on clearance for $10. I decided to use it as a vanity in my dressing room. I put magnets on the back or bottom of all my makeup and put all the makeup on the metal rollout keyboard stand. Now I can see all my makeup through the glass top and roll the stand out without my makeup falling off. SIMPLE!

Last week I made regular size cookie monster cupcakes and I also made a giant cookie monster cupcake. They turned out so cute. Made regular cupcakes that had blue coloring added to the frosting. I frosted them with blue frosting then covered them with blue coconut flakes. To dye the coconut flakes I put them ina ziplock bag and added several drops of blue food coloring and just shook the bag. For the eyes I just took white candy melts and flipped them upside down and used black frosting to make the eyeball. For the mouth, I used a sharp knife and cut the opening on the cupcake and put a cookie in it. Easy!

I made cupcakes that look like cheeseburgers the other day. Each "cheeseburger" is made up of three different colros of icing and three cupcake tops. I took two vanilla cupcake tops and used those as buns and used a chocolate cupcake top and used it as the burger patty. Then I used red frosting to look like ketchup and yellow frosting to look like mustard and green frosting to look like lettuce. I put real sesame seeds on top to give it that extra authentic look. The "fries" are sugar cookies that as soon as they came out of the oven I cut them longways and when they cooled they looked like fries. I dusted them with powdered sugar. YUMMY!
