First, thanks for all the nice comments about my studio space! A lot of you asked about the paint colors…I wish I could find the paint swatch online, but was having trouble, but if you have a Porter Paint nearby (pretty common here in TN), majority of our house is in "Heavy Cream" and the kitchen and my office is "Spiced Vinegar". They are on the same paint swatch spectrum. :)

Yes, TGI-Thursday! Tomorrow I have the day off because my Mom is on a plane just as I type this…headed here to Nashville! Some friends – Joyce, Mary Alice and Stephanie are throwing me a fabulous baby shower on Saturday, I can't wait!

Not too much new to report. I loved our first birthing class last week and I'm looking forward to tonight's class where we'll tour the maternity ward and nursery as well as learn some labor exercises – fun! :) There are about 10 other couples in our class, and we're all due around the same time which is cool. We also did an infant CPR class on Tuesday, so we're now good on that front…and then next week is our breastfeeding class…whew! This is a whole lot of classes! Making it all the more real with each and every one!

Oh! And I added a little arrival guesstimator to the left column of my blog… be sure to add your guess and I will give a prize to the closest winner! :)

Have a fabulous weekend….and here is a "sweet treat" creatively to share…

2009 Maples Wedding Cakes Website Update

I had the honor of designing Maples Wedding Cakes' website last year and we had the wonderful Whitney Carlson of Dove Wedding Photography  (yes, my wedding photographers) shoot some of owner and designer Jay Qualls' fabulous couture wedding cakes. Did I mention how unbelievably tasty his cakes are too?!?

This year's set of cakes did not disappoint and are even more stunning than the ones we featured in 2008! Be sure to check out to see some of the updates I have made for 2009. Here are a few of my favorites from the new gallery images. Don't these belong in Martha Stewart Weddings???





Steph Mahoney says:

I, too, love your new studio! So sunny and cheerful. Cannot wait for the shower on Saturday! I entered my guess…he will be here before you know it. :)

I entered my guess!
I love, love, love that first cake! Maples’ website looks fantastic. :)
