Hello everyone. I wanted to share with you all my idea of a donut cake, which consists of a two layer brownie cake with different flavored donut holes on top. Of course your cake doesn't have to be this chocolatey (I am literally a chocoholic, so it is my cake of choice), however I hope… Continue reading Donut Cake? Of Course!

My mother taught me the trick to it, so now I'm able to make newborn blankets with no problem. Yay! But… Continue reading Putting the Pieces Together: Making a Blanket

About Me

About Me… Well Just a Little 😁

My name is Ashley, hello. Thanks for visiting my page and reading this. I made this blog a few weeks ago and I have literally been overthinking this first post thing.
