❤ getting inspiration ❤

I've not had much excuse to really put a lot of effort into decorating a cake until now. The fun for me has always been the eating part but I do appreciate beautifully decorated cakes and cupcakes! A friend's birthday is coming up this weekend and I thought it would be more special to bake her a cake rather than buying one this year! Well...will let their taste buds decide I think! hehe
I have an idea of how I want to decorate it, it's going to be a Japanese cotton soft cheesecake which is nice and light. Will fill it with light whipped cream and strawberries...colour theme ~ white, pink and red! :D

I've been trolling through flickr to get some inspiration and boy there are some really yummy looking cakes out there and home made too!! Not sure if mine will look as professional...okay, I KNOW it won't look as professional but I do hope it will look scrumdiddlyumptious and pretty too. Will post and let you know!! wish me luck! =D

❤ Prim aka Jenny Bear and Peeta ❤

Please hop on over to my Jenny Bear Blog to meet my custom order bears "Prim" aka Jenny Bear and "Peeta"!! :D

*:: SNOVIT and STURT ::*

Do you remember this little Swedish girl "Snövit" and her grumpy kitten "Sturt" in my earlier posts? Well, we're all rather sad that their original mommy wasn't able to complete their adoption due to unforeseeable circumstances however, I know a lot of you inquired about them at the time so the good news is, I'm happy to announce that they are on their search for a new mommy and are now available for adoption! :D

For more photos and adoption details, please visit my shoppe! :D

Thank you everyone for visiting Snovit, Snovit has now found a new home in Nottinghamshire, UK. She's going to have loads of fun with her new family and will have lots of JLB friends and siblings to play with!! Thanks Katie! :D

*:: I'm inspired ::*

I love quilts!! The last time I made one was for a project in high school and I've been wanting to make another one for donkey years but I know it will take me almost forever to finish one with my current hectic schedule, a balancing act between JLB, family and chores.

There's something about them...perhaps it's knowing the many hours spent and much love that's been poured into making a quilt that makes them so special!!

I stumbled upon this gorgeous quilt by wisecraft who created this beautiful piece of work. I love it even more because it's created from "Emma's baby clothes"!! Recycling and quilting to me is like tea and scones, they work so well together. I'm so totally inspired, are you???

*:: Jennylovesbenny turned 7! ::*

Originally uploaded by Lee & Julie
Sometimes, I wonder if it's just me...
The older I get, I seem to become busier and busier and time seems to tick away ever so faster than my younger years where I still remember sitting idly, letting the day pass me by. Now, I'm forever racing the clock and would you believe I forgot about Jennylovesbenny's 7th Birthday!?

Jennylovesbenny turned 7 in October and although, Jenny Bear with her furry friends and I did have a tea party in October, we never really celebrated the special occasion. It just doesn't count if there's no candle on the cake!! Looks like I'm just going to have to make it up with more tea parties this year! I'm sure the bears will be happy about that, any excuse to eat cake!

Another year flown by and I'll like to say THANK YOU!!! Jennylovesbenny has certainly grown over the years and it still always brightens my day to learn my bears bring smiles and joy to you. THANK YOU for taking the time to read my blog, for your lovely emails and comments and for your support. THANK YOU to all Jennylovesbenny mums and dads for adopting my furry babies and to everyone who's created their own Jennylovesbenny Bears from my patterns and sharing your creations with me! From the bottom of my heart, I sincerely THANK YOU!

To celebrate jennylovesbenny's belated 7th Birthday, I'll like to offer a blog giveaway. The winner will receive a HARDCOVER image wrapped copy of my Jennylovesbenny Birthday Book together with a hard copy pattern of their choice.
