Tonight’s episode is filled with all kinds of creative fun! We’re creating a birdie-themed birthday party for a little “tweet”heart, we’ll introduce you to the fantastic new CRICUT CAKE machine, and did we mention we’re…
giving a machine away, as well? YES, you read that right! We have a brand new giveaway, courtesy of this episode’s sponsor, ProvoCraft.

Speaking of giveaways, watch Episode 4 closely…we’re announcing the TWO WINNERS of the Janome Embroidery and Sewing Machine giveaway!
And then there’s Kris…did you know she’s quite the actress? HA! Just kiddin’! But she just may be in the Emmy-running for the “most-cheesy-personality” on a web show! Watch and you’ll see! (and at least get a good chuckle…)
Here are a few photos of what we’re making in episode 4!
Now, while we love to craft and create, the “cooking” side of things isn’t our “forte”, so to speak. And decorating store-bought cupcakes was a fun and EASY way to go! But, we know there are many who LOVE to bake! Or perhaps you’d like to learn something new about baking the perfect cake or cupcake. Well, you’ve come to the right place!
Two of our friends and FANTASTIC food bloggers are helping us out! Seriously, you’re going to drool going through their blog photos and recipes. Please visit Brooke from CheekyKitchen.com and Leigh Anne from YourHomebasedMom.com. They will welcome you “DIY DISH” viewers with their own video posts and give you their top tips and tricks for making delectable cakes! You will seriously LOVE their websites. They are daily stops for both of us.
