Hi, I'm Cameron (aka Iffy), a stay at home mother to 4 beautiful children. My family is my life! I am not crafty by nature....but I am learning =D I will share my experiences with you(good & bad) with crafts, DIY, cooking, and life. I say what's on my mind, and remain honest, it's just who I am. Love it or leave it =D So follow me and see my progress as I document my journey, and If All Else Fails....at least you have gained a friend and gotten some great tips or maybe learned something new along the way!

Simplify 2012 ~ Valentine's Day

Pin It
I missed this week's party -sorry :/  but it gets so busy around the holidays 
here in my home. Sometimes, time gets away from me.
I decided to make a Valentine's Day Coconut Cake for my sweets ~ all 5 of them!
I typically make my sweets from scratch but I had a limited amount of time so
I used boxed cake mix -GASP- I know I know but it actually tasted pretty good.
I didn't know Duncan Hines made boxed coconut cake mix so I gave it a whirl. Since
I was on a roll with the whole store bought stuff, I used a can of vanilla frosting to top it off.
Talk about keeping it simple right?
I did add coconut to the top & candles. =D Landon & Michaela must have thought it
was their birthdays again or something lol. I mean hey around here it's always
some one's birthday. 
I didn't have any red colored sugar so I improvised
A few drops in a bowl of sugar, mixed with a fork worked well enough.
I sprinkled it on top
we had to fight off little hands that wanted to dig right in.

I think Landon liked it...
every crumb of it.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Hey just wondering if I can get some suggestions on the quickest & most user friendly
photo editing program. Since picnik is going away soon I need to find a program
that I can edit, re size, etc photos without taking a ton of time. Just curious if any of
you had any recommendations?
Thanks in advance! 
Much Love

  2. I did see this post for a new photo software... maybe you will like it! I am so new to the bloggy world, I have no idea what all this means.


  3. So many juicy posts...it was hard to decide what to comment on! Love your creative fix for the colored sugar/sprinkles. Looks delicious!
    As far as software...it's not the cheapest, but Lightroom - especially on sale - is fantastic! Not sure whether you're thinking that elaborate, but it's top notch and pretty easy to figure out!
