Bath Seat Basket

Posted on

Here is a baby shower gift I put together for my friends Mike & Monique, the same people who got the Duck Towel Cake.  I had decided on a bath time theme with this bath seat being the “basket”.

Isn’t It Ducky?

I love parties. Any party. Direct sales parties, baby showers, bridal showers, birthday parties, anniversaries – all of them. I have never met a party I didn’t like. And I love to get creative with my gifts. So I thought the best way to start this journey was to post about some gifts I have done for people. This post is for the towel cake I did for my friends Mike & Monique. I wanted to do something different for their bridal shower and this took the cake! It was definitely the hit of the shower, and are elegant AND useful. Here it is…

Banana Pup-cakes with Cream Cheese Frosting!!!

Banana Pupcakes with Cream Cheese Icing!As you know, Bear’s birthday was the other day.  We usually get Frosty Paws for Bear & Butters to celebrate, but this time I thought I would do something different.  You see, it is a little difficult sometimes because Bear is allergic to Peanut Butter, a common ingredient in dog treats.  But as I looked around the web to see what other kinds of treats are out there, I ran across this Banana Pupcake recipe.  I liked that there are only a few ingredients in it, so it is healthy for them.  And it just so happened that I had some ripe bananas on top of the fridge.

Welcome to my Blog!

Hello!  I am Erin, a 36-year-old who loves dogs, shopping, parties and Pinterest. I am married to my soulmate, Jason. We have 2 fur babies, Bear (a black lab) & Butters (a yellow lab) and live in Central New Jersey near the Jersey Shore.

I worked in Finance for over 12 years.  I left a good job to try something new that didn’t work out but found a job I liked as a District Manager helping people start their own businesses shortly after. For 4 years I saw amazing things.  People were taking control of their lives and incomes.  I got laid off from that job in April of 2012 and with my severance, I wasn’t too worried about finding a job. I applied to some jobs but basically took the summer off to get projects done around the house (read: major decluttering!). Once August rolled around, I starting applying to more positions, confident that I would have a job by Christmas.  Surprise! That did not happen.  Thank God for Ebay – I sold a lot of my stuff from my “projects” and that is pretty much how I funded our Christmas presents. So, now it is April of 2013 – still no job.  I did get one call last month for a pre-interview but no dice. It doesn’t make sense to worry about it since it will all fall into place.  And so, I keep applying. That is where Sweet Erindipity comes in. Continue reading »
