Project Linus with Percy Jackson & Fox

Project Linus is comprised of hundreds of local chapters and thousands of volunteers across the United States. Each volunteer and local chapter all work together to help achieve the mission statement, which states: First, it is a mission to provide love, a sense of security, warmth and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “blanketeers.” Second, it is a mission to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children. Together we have distributed over 4.5 million blankets to children in need since our inception in 1995.
 Through Fox, I was able to help make 25 blankets for Project Linus over the holiday season. This cause really meant something to me, since we have the blanket Mason got from Project Linus when he was in the hospital, and though Mason is gone, I have comfort in knowing that was his last blanket he cuddled with.

Duff Camo Cake #Giveaway

Finally, awesome cake products that are less about coloring inside the lines and more about getting inspired. Dream up your own uncommon cake creation and bake it into reality with professional grade cake mixes, baking pans and tools, plus the best-tasting fondant, colorful icings and wildly creative decorating tools from Duff Goldman, star of Food Network shows “Ace of Cakes” and “Sugar High” and owner of the famed Charm City Cakes. Easy enough for beginners, with the premium quality expected by the pros, this extensive line of baking products is a whole lot of fun for everyone.
I got the Duff Camouflage Cake. Duff's cake mixes are just like the ones used in professional bakeries. One package of this cake mix makes one 9"x13” cake or two double-layer 8” or 9” round cakes. “Hunting” for a dessert to make people say wow? Mix the wild blend of colors in Duff’s new camo cake mix to create a one-of-a-kind confection that stands apart from the herd! I love this cake! So cute! Of course, mine did not turn out like the pic:
I got fudge frosting instead of the orange. And it is not as pretty and clean as the picture on the box, but it sure was fun to try, and so so so so good! I already went out and bought another cake to try! Tie Die!
