Five Faves Friday

Hey my friends! I just couldn't get my faves done yesterday. I was feeling a bit under the weather.

For my first fave of the week, I want to share with you my giant cupcake pan from Williams Sonoma that Denise gave me for my birthday. LOVE it! She knows I LOVE to bake and I use this a lot!


Here is a picture (bad picture) of the Red Velvet cupcake I made for two of our bunco gals who were having a birthday the other night. It was delicious! The cream cheese frosting is so yummy!


I got not one but TWO happy boxes from Denise this week with so many faves in them, I don't know where to start!

I love the new Glue Dots dispensers - Dot n Go! I use these for everything and they are so sticky, nothing falls off my cards or layouts anymore. I was using the red super sticky Mono but those things kept breaking and I'd have to throw them away and that is soooo frustrating.

I am totally digging all of the new rubber stamps from Teresa Collins! They are cling mounted, perfect for easy storage. My faves are all of the journaling ones. Here is a Halloween card I made with one of the stamps:

While creating the other day, I was listening to www.last.fm LOVE it. You can load in all of your favorite artists and they make lots of suggestions for new music. Kinda like Pandora radio but with some different features. Check it out!

And speaking of music, here's some artists that I am loving lately: Marc Broussard, Marie Digby, Tristan Prettyman, Christopher Jak, James Morrison, Rachel Yamagata, Jon McLaughlin, Adele and The Weepies!

Now leave me a comment with a couple of YOUR recommended faves and I'll pick someone to receive a box of fun scrapbooking goodness! Remember, when I get a happy box, one of you will get one too! Marie's box is ready to go out and it is heavy! Over 100 sheets of paper in it!

Have a great weekend. Mine started off perfect with a WIN by my beloved Red Sox over the Rays last night. The pitching was DeAD On amazing. A joy to watch. I have commited to go to a Chili Cook-off party tonight at the same time Game 2 will be on and I am freaking out over that. You see, nobody here in Idaho cares about the Red Sox or baseball for that matter so I'm sure they will have the BSU football game on TV! I'm sure the party will be lots of fun but I need some score updates. Beck, Kell, Mike, Dad... TEXT ME!!

How about that wild snow last night? Crazy, huh?

Right now, I'm enjoying one old Cranberries CD and then a solo CD from Dolores O'Riordan from the Cranberries.

When can we play?

Leigh said...

I'll have to check out that site. I'm wondering if I can get it-- Pandora isn't available in Canada.
Who would I suggest? Well, I mostly listen to Christian Contemporary music, but I also really like the Barenaked Ladies.
Enjoy your new goodies!

Hey Lori!
Love that cupcake pan! How cool is that? Although, I probably couldn't even figure out how to use it. I'm not much of a baker!
And I'm a bit embarrassed to say that I pretty much only listen to "old" music. I'm kinda out of the loop. I still really love to play George Winston as background music when scrapping. And another all time favorite is Tracey Chapman. I love everything she's ever done.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Music - well I like to listen to all the music on your site! Sometimes I just pull your page up to listen to while I scrap. Other than that it mostly revolves around the Backyardigans.

That pan looks like SO much fun! I'm going to have to get me one of those!
As for my favs - Music wise I can't get enough of the latest Taylor Swift! Hubby did pick up a CD by a group called Galeic Storm that is pretty wild too! Scrapbooking wise - I'm loving the newer Scenic Route!
Food-wise? Zucchini Bread or freshly baked carrot cake with yummy cream cheese frosting. I'm craving a piece of cheesecake too!

Hmmm....I'm going to have to say a fave of mine today is the Pixie Stix that I received from Pink Paislee today...they knocked my socks off! They're HUGE too! I thought they were going to be these little tubes...um NO!

Love the cupcake pan, love that your blogging alot, love that I was just thinking about you and the red socks! Oh and I bet you don't know that have fallen IN LOVE with RED VELVET Cake! As far as music...lately have been listening to a lot of new and old pop, along with some hip hop! I know crazy for me to be listening to hip hop... But it's part of the whole LA experience! So yesterday Alaina filmed a music video with Chris Brown!! Wow amazing she has done so much in her lifetime! Too amazing! Well I love you!!!!! Monica

Pearl said...

My fave adhesives are still the 3m double sided tape ( repositionable ) & the Kokuyo dot liner (no wastage at all , refillable & you can add flock & foil & maybe glitter but haven't tried that yet ) & loving crackled paint at the mo !
