Whoopie Pie Mixes just in time for the Holidays, Whoopie!

Rumor has it that New England farmers would shout whoopie! when they discovered one of these nostalgic sweet treats in their lunch boxes.

Jen Simpson Design Custom Invitations

I recently stumbled upon Jen Simpson Design and fell in love with her custom invitations. In the on-line word where anyone and everyone calls them self a graphic designer she truly defines the what a graphic artist is. She adds such a personal since of style to every one of her custom creations.  Jen Simpson Designs is a husband and wife team.  They combined her design talent with her husband Luke's amazing craftsmanship and attention to detail to produce hand made works of art. 

This is one of my favorite designs, she calls Sharon.  Jen's specialty is wedding invitations, but so many of her designs are perfect for any event.  Baby Shower, Bridal Showers, Birthday Parties you name it.

Trisha... this is another one that I love, love, love!  She has tons of signature designs to choose from, but don't see exactly what you are looking for.  Jen will create your own custom design for you. 

Truly an artist, Jen does hand illustration on many of her designs.  I love this one "Emma".  Did I leave you wanting more... visit Jen Simpson Designs to view her entire collection of wedding invitations and I highly recommend peaking at her Etsy shop as well.  She is previewing her new hand made Christmas card designs.  Can't wait to place my order!

Great Summer Reading!

Just had to brag about my 17 year old daughter Taylor.  She loves, loves, loves to read (unlike her mother)and is a very talented writer.  With a little push from mom she has started a little book review blog called Tay's Bookshelf.  It is a great on-line journal for her to keep but she also shares her thoughts on the many books she reads.  If you are looking for a great book to read this summer check it out...

Martha Stewart Dreamers into Doers' - I was chosen Doer of the week!

I am so thrilled to be chosen Doer of the Week!  Thank you so much to Alexis and team at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. I am so excited, I will be smiling all week! Five years ago I was dreaming of starting my own business. When I first started Vintage Bakeshop I had no idea how many twists and turns my journey would make, but I love where my venture has taken me. I have always been a passionate baker, and it is an honor to know that my cupcake mix favors and baking mix gifts have added that special little something to so many showers, weddings and celebrations.

I also want to give a special thank you to all of my customers over the years, my friends here Martha Stewart's Dreamers into Doers and my family for all of your support.

Cupcake sale for Haiti raises more than $1,200 - A fun way to give!

I saw a woman and her three little boys in front of a store doing magic tricks for donations to give to the American Red Cross for Haiti.  I mean these boys were little, not even school age.  It was so inspiring to think that someone would pack up three little ones and give their time to raise money.  Time is not something most of us have an over abundance of, but I knew that my girls and I could do something.  Since I am a much better baker than a magician I knew cupcakes were the answer.  We baked over 600 of them and the kids sold every single one of them.  My three daughters and six of their friends sold cupcakes for seven hours in the rain.  A little chilly yes, but so worth it!  We were able to donated $1279.73 to the American Red Cross to aid in the relief efforts in Haiti.  We really had so much fun and it was so rewarding for all of us.
