Fabulous Friday Favorites....

Alright I admit it! My name is Danielle & I am a shopaholic. I have been shop free for the past 2 hours. : ) But not the kind of shopaholic we see in the movie - buying designer things all the time (who doesn't love those) but more so, the kind that loves handmade things, made by moms like me! So on Fridays I've decided to tell all of you, my loyal entourage, the wonderful items I've found & purchased for myself or as gifts!

Today, I'll start with my first Etsy purchase....that started this addiction.  Introducing .....

Magaby's Kid-ture

I have personally bought from this shop twice & have loved the beautiful gifts for my new nephew & niece.  The quality of her products are impeccable & the pictures don't do her items justice!
Here are a few more of her gorgeous creations!

This one is my fave! It was custom made for my handsome new nephew, Cy, who is one week and three days old today!!

So whether you need a baby gift or something fun for your little one, check out Magaby's Kid-ture @
and support an incredibly talented mom!!

Happy parenting & Go Pokes, Beat Missouri!!

So I need some more followers........

One of my awesome Etsy mentors & I were chatting about marketing & she totally brought it to my attention that I need an entourage! LOL! Sadly, I'm no Vincent Chase just a SAHM trying to start my own business.. So I ask & beg you, my friends & fellow bloggers - can you help me with my entourage?
I need some twitter followers for @dcronic & more blog followers on this blog...
In return, I offer you my love and devotion, LOL!

By the way, Little Curlz Couture is going to be on & we are SUPER EXCITED!!!! Check it out & support Moms all over the Country!!!

In fact, I might need to hit up my friend/sister Jen @ (her fabulous blog) to help me with some wording to summarize my shop because let me tell you she is one eloquent mama!! AND what she blogs you will LOVE reading - I know I do!! So go - go now!!!
Happy parenting!

Cheesecake Cups with Blueberries & Raspberries

Late Night Recipe Rant

I cannnot sleep tonight. I don't know if its being excited about becoming an aunt again any minute or the fact that I had my first sale on etsy tonight. (Thanks Tracy) So I've decided to post a late night recipe rant. It probably won't be the last time, so I hope everyone likes this one. : )
My "new" staple at any party, baby shower, birthday get to together & now family holiday is a little something I like to call Cheesecake Cups. It's so yummy that everyone will rave about them & compliment your cooking regardless of whether they like you or not. Let's face it - some of us just don't have time to be Martha Stewart or Rachel Ray. So here goes & I promise you'll never believe how scrumptous they are until you try them!!

Cheesecake Cups

1 - Philadelphia Cheesecake in a tub (found near the cream cheese) I like the regular but the Key Lime is pretty good too!

1 - Box of Athens Mini Phyllo Dough Shells

1 - topping of your choice - I love blueberries so that's what I've used but you can use grated chocolate etc.

All you do is put the mini phyllo dough shells in the oven to crisp for maybe 10 minutes (it says on the box). Let them cool and spoon fill or pipe cheesecake into them & top with whatever you want. It sounds to good to be true but I swear by them! My family (30 people) will be here for thanksgiving & they will love them! I will try to post pictures of them from my Sister-in-laws baby shower...
Hope you love the recipe!!! Good night & Happy Parenting!
