The Blogger Spotlight: Cupcakes & Crinoline


Welcome back to round #2 of my new series where I feature my favorite bloggers…

The Blogger Spotlight!

I’m shining my handy dandy spotlight on one of the sweetest bloggers I’ve ever worked with.  She’s not only pretty and talented, but she’s also kind, encouraging, and helpful.  That’s a good mix!

Introducing, Mary Beth, from Cupcakes and Crinoline…

The Blogger Spotlight Cupcakes and Crinoline


Hello all of you wonderful readers of Redhead Can Decorate! I’m Mary Beth from Cupcakes and Crinoline and I am so happy to be here to share my blog with you.  I started Cupcakes and Crinoline in 2008 and the name…well, I like cupcakes and I like crinoline….I didn’t put as much thought into it as I should have 😉  but I do blog about almost anything and everything ~ recipes, homemaking tips, crafts, gardening, small DIY projects and some tech talk.  When I started my blog I worked full time (and then some) but now I work part time (yay) and I couldn’t be happier about that.

Today I wanted to share with you a mod podge of some of my favorite posts.

First, this unbelievably easy to make gardener’s scrub for your hands ~ it gets rid of dirt and more and keeps your hands nice and soft.

p.s. I don’t usually look as serious as this picture ~ I rarely do selfies and I had to squint to see myself in the mirror without my glasses and somehow I forgot to smile I was so focused….oh boy!
