Happy New Year!



Hello, and Happy New Year!

The blog has been a bit quiet lately….certainly not planned that way, but the holiday season got a bit busier then expected. I hope you had a WONDERFUL Christmas and that the new year is off to a GREAT start!

I’ve been pondering the changes of the new year and what my intentions in the new year will be. As our kiddos get older, I find myself wanting to simplify.  I think de-cluttering and organizing will continue to persist, but I also will strive to live creatively everyday.  Either in trying a new recipe, crafting, exploring a new shop……just trying new things is a very enriching experience.


This mini bundt cake is an example of simple, everyday creativity.  We had one last holiday party to attend this weekend, and we always do a small gift exchange of homemade items. I originally intended to bake cranberry biscotti to go with these teas, but ran out of time. I turned instead to a cranberry orange muffin recipe, but decided to dress it up a bit by forgoing the muffin pan and using a mini bundt pan instead. A drizzle of a simple sugar glaze, fresh cranberries and pearlized sprinkles added the finishing holiday touch. 🙂


I LOVE packaging – its a great way to make even the simplest gift seem extra special.  I hope they all are enjoying their mini cake and tea. 🙂


I’m excited to begin living creatively everyday, and appreciate the beauty of simplicity. Thank you for another year of following this blog and sharing your inspiration, I appreciate it so much! 🙂

Happy Creating,

  1. Your pretty bundt muffin looks delicious, as I set here with my cup of tea. Ditto to simplicity. I am also downsizing, organizing, donating and de cluttering ! Have wanted to try the homemade Biscotti’s , so maybe for February Heart day. Was a fun post with the cute packaging. Have a warm and sunny week.

      Hi Sylvia,
      Thank you! I think many of us are on the same page with simplifying.
      Order is such a refreshing feeling, and I can’t wait to fully get there. 🙂
      Ooh, biscotti will be perfect for Valentine’s Day. I’ll have to remember that.

      I hope you have a wonderful week as well!
