Framed Yarn-Wrapped Initials


I'm creating my first gallery wall! I'm so excited!

When I first thought about creating a gallery wall, I wanted to plan where each frame was going to go and what was going in each frame. But after months of a blank wall, I decided to throw that idea out the window! Instead I'm going to make it up as a go... be spontaneous! : )

For a while now, I've had an idea inspired by this pin on Pinterest.com {I can't find the original source : \ } and wanted to create something similar but with yarn wrapped initials for both Chris and I.  I figured this would be a great start to the gallery wall and why not center every other picture around our initials!

Cheesecake Cupcakes

I'm sure you have figured out by now that I love desserts or anything sweet. Unfortunately, Chris does not feel the same. Usually he gets a craving for sweets when we have nothing, but when we do have sweets he doesn't want them! Go figure... all well... more for me. ; )

My most recent dessert is cheesecake cupcakes! {I adapted a recipe I found here.} Cupcakes are awesome because they are the perfect, individual size treat and they are easy to take to work {I'm trying not to eat everything... trying : ) }. I have a feeling I'm going to be making more of my favorite sweets in cupcake versions... get excited!
