Smörgåstårta: Swedish Sandwich Cake

Smörgåstårta: Swedish Sandwich Cake
While I love to decorate cakes, I will usually opt to consume calories of the savory variety. I mean I will totally eat both but if I have to chose I’m Team Potato Chip. So imagine my delight when Jaime introduced me to a food that combined my passion for fancy food presentation and bagel plates. May I present Smörgåstårta, or Swedish Sandwich Cake. I had to make one.

Fabric Friday

Fabric Friday on Pretty Prudent_Final

Today we are giving away one yard of fabric that will hopefully fight off those winter blues. Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics, Serengeti, Quill Stripe Multi is also from the colorful Serengeti collection we have been featuring these past few weeks. I especially love the herringbone print and think a pair of pants would look so cute with this fabric. What does it inspire you to sew? While you’re brainstorming ideas, you should definitely head over to Fabricworm to check out all their new fabrics for spring.

Enter for the chance to win one yard of Jay-Cyn Designs for Birch Fabrics, Serengeti, Quill Stripe Multi, and find out who won last week’s Fabric Friday after the jump…

Valentine's Day Gift GuideWe have hearts in our eyes this week for everything in our Valentine’s Day Gift Guide. I’m loving these gem eraser rings for classroom valentines, Jaime adores her rose gold flats (perfect for her un-romantic Valentine’s Day outfit), and Jacinda is planning out a tasty cocktail with this mixer to celebrate.  There is a bit of something for everyone, including a few handmade gift ideas too.

DIY Heart-Shaped Tea Bags

DIY Heart-Shaped Tea Bags
It looks like we have six more weeks of winter, huh? I can’t exactly complain about the winter we’ve been having here in LA, but I know a good portion of you could use some warming up right about now. Since I’m a big tea drinker I wanted to make these DIY Heart-Shaped Tea Bags for Valentine’s Day. I plan to put them in little gift baskets for friends with a card that says something sweet and silly like You’re Tea-rrific and You warm my heart. Right now though, I plan to enjoy a cup with one of Jaime’s heart scones.
