What I’m Obsessed With… Today At Least

2017-08-24 16.58.24

Hey Everyone!

 

Cierra here, and today I thought I would share with you what I’m currently obsessed with. If you are an avid Michael’s shopper like my mom and I, you have probably come across these amazing stamp sets.

They are apart of the Everyday Value program that is currently going on within the store. Currently they have 4 different kinds of everyday reminders and social media icons. However, I was very excited to see that they have a Halloween set. I couldn’t resist! This makes me very hopeful that soon a fall set will be released and then after that…Christmas!!

They also had a few different ombre inspired ink pads but they also have a set of different color inks mixed in with the stamp sets. I love these stamps and encourage you to try them as well!

 

Have a great day!!

Desk Essentials


Hey Everyone, Cierra here. I hope you are all having a fantastic week so far, once we make it through today it will finally be the weekend. Doesn’t it feel like this week has gone on forever?
Anyways, since the theme for this week has been school/ work, I thought I would share with you my desk essentials. The desk in the picture above is mine and it’s where I write posts for this blog as well as my personal (www.mightrunforcupcakes.com), where I do my homework (currently studying for my bachelor’s in business management) and where I run my online bakery business (www.cierrasbakeshoppe.com). So it serves as the headquarters for my many adventures. A few, let’s be honest the list is never ending and changes on a day to day basis, of my essentials are:
– The magnetic whiteboard calender: this keeps track of my crazy schedule, tells me what I have coming up, my work schedule and what orders need to be filled when and vacations when I get the chance to get away.
– The Three Drawer organizer: I have two, the little one atop of the desk and a big one under my desk. These are lifesavers when it comes to keeping all of my important things close by. The bigger one holds my files, my cameras, tablets and my never ending notebook supply.
– The shelf that sits above my desk is my motivation/happy things shelf. It holds some of my favorite pictures, as well as, momentous to remind me why I work so hard.
– The small striped wooden box next to the baker Piglet, holds most of my post-its. Before I had this, I usually had to really search for something little to write on, so with this little holder I can keep it close and organized.
– My sisters and I have a weird addictions to pens. Whenever we go to Target we are always down the pen aisle, we have plenty but never enough it seems. So because of that issue I have 3 holders on my desk just for pens.
– In front of those pens is a coaster. Lindsey picked up these cute beach themed coasters for sydnee and I, while she was vacationing in Newport a few years back. That combined with the Brad Paisley Koozie has made such a difference to keeping the condensation from the daily ice coffees from making a watery mess.
For today, those are the top desk essentials. If you have any suggestions or would like to share your desk essentials, please comment below!

Have a great day!

Tasty Tuesday

Hello Everyone!

 

We hope you are all having a wonderful Shark Week so far! Today we thought we would share a recipe for a tasty treat to enjoy while watching all the new shows and old favorites. The treat is for Shark-Tastic Shark Fin Rice Krispy Treats.

 

You Will Need:

  • 3 Tbsp Butter or Margarine
  • 1 Package (10 oz.,about 40) JET-PUFFED Marshmallows
  • OR 4 Cups JET-PUFFED Miniature Marshmallows
  • 6 Cups Kellog’s Rice Krispies Cereal

 

 

To begin, in a large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Constantly stir, nothing worse than having to scrub off marshmallow remnants when you could be enjoying the treats.  Then remove from heat and add Kellog’s Rice Krispies Cereal. Stir until well coated.

 

Then, using buttered spatula or wax paper evenly press mixture into well greased(with cooking spray) 13×9 inch pan.

 

While still warm but not super hot, don’t want to get burned, and cut into squares, whatever your size preference and shape into a shark fin, triangle shape and place on parchment paper lined cookie sheet.

 

Place in refrigerator to cool completely. While those cool, prepare melting chocolate as directed by package. We placed ours in open Ziploc bags and heated in 30 second increments, once it is completely melted we closed up the bags and cut off a small corner to drizzle more evenly over the treats. We used two different colors of blue, and drizzled over the fins and then sprinkled with assorted round sprinkles that look like bubbles.

 

Once decorated, place back in refrigerator to let the chocolate cool, once set. Present however you want and enjoy!

 

Have a sharky day!
