Red Velvet Cakes

Doesn't this picture scream Yummy!! Yummy!!! I found this recipe on Lick the Bowl Good. These cupcakes were made from scratch, and the recipe was super easy! The only thing I changed about the recipe, is that I made a batch of the cream cheese frosting just to smear on the side while I devoured my red velvet muffin!!! Go to the blog and check out the recipe.. try it and tell me if you feel in love with it the same way it did !

Today was a Good Day!

I must say that today was a good day! My hubby made some really good chicken,burgers, and hot dogs. I was responsible for the side which was ok, as long as I didn't have to tend to that hot grill. I also got to make a batch of Red Velvet Cupcakes. I found the recipe on this blog I follow. It was a twist on the original cupcake. The cream cheese icing mixture was bake inside the cupcake. They turned out really, really good! I don't know about you guys but I get excited when I find a new recipe and even more excited when it turns out to be a keeper!! Hopefully I'll get a chance to post the recipe later!

The weather was Wonderful today. It was cool and breezy. The kind of weather I like. The girls played outside all day. They yelled,screamed, and ran around everywhere. I loved it! It made me think about when I was their age. Which was that long ago!?( wink,wink)

We also invited my mom and my sister over for dinner. It was so nice to spend some time with them today. We joked, laughed and watched movies. I also got a chance to play around with my nieces too! Even though the two younger ones were busy playing with their cousins. Shay who is in Middle School now is taking Art. I love her...especially when she takes a interest in something that I LOVE to do ART! I got to sit down and draw with her today. I gave her a few tricks of the trade.

And finally, I finished up a piece that i have been working on for my cousin. Printed, framed and ready to go. I plan on giving it to her next week as a housewarming gift. I hope she likes it. I'll try to post pictures of it after the party. I dont want to spoil the surprise! And......I'm working on some BIG Art tuned !!!

Meet Philly! He a mouse that ended up on the wrong side of the tracks. Orphan gone wrong. After a few Misdemeanor offenses he was finally caught for Robbery by the Metro police. Along with the rest of his gang. Which I'm sure you will meet sooner than later. He was the brain of the gang. I wonder how he got caught but.....Maybe that was his plan ????

He is painted on a 10x10 canvas. I used watercolor pencils along with acrylic paints on this painting. I loved that he looks a little tattered and torn but, still cute and mysterious in the same way. He is the first of a series of Mugshot that I'm working on. I cant wait for you guys to meet all of them!

Pixar: Pure Imagination

This is one of my favorite songs. Every time I hear it I can't help but think of "This so called Art Career" I have now! Yes, I know it's barely off the ground but It's getting there slowly but surely. :) Just think, a year ago I would have NEVER IMAGINED that I would be painting art, let alone have this blog up and running. I can't help but wondering what I will be doing next year around this time? Hopefully, I'll have alot more followers or maybe some of my art will be featured in a Gallery or a Art show? Who knows? There are so my possibilities,and I can't wait to embrace them all!!!!
