Hi everyone – hope you`re all having a great start to your Tuesday.
I wanted to start off with Aida, a lovely blogger friend who has completely captivated the foodie community with her baking creations. Have you ever seen something as amazing as this chocolate cake?
This is not just any cake – this is a Chocolate Pinata Cake filled with Muddy Buddies. Aida gives a great tutorial that actually makes it look possible for an ordinary human to make it!
Her blog, The Crafting Foodie is filled with fantastic images and recipes and is a must see!
Aida`s attention to detail is amazing and her crafting skills are highlighted too. Here is an adorable cardigan cable knit sweater she made for her daughter. This is one very talented lady so pop over with a cup of tea, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery!
Just a short while ago I discovered Castles, Crowns and Cottages but I feel like I’ve known Anita my whole life. She is a remarkable woman who can touch others in a very special way and if you immerse yourself in her choices of music, images and her poignant writings you will come away deeply affected.
That may all sound a little mysterious but I don’t know how else to describe a visit to Anita’s site – once you’re there you’ll know what I’m talking about. She explains: ” I write to lift up others. I write because I must. I compose ideas because the inspiration comes from above.”
Here’s just a little glimpse of one of my favourite posts about love. It’s Spring time and isn’t everyone in love? Please enjoy the music while you savour the words and images.
CRAZY, ISN’T IT?
You can’t cover it up.

And once you’ve known it

Our Mission: Spread ideas
TED is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of the world. We believe passionately in the power of ideas to change attitudes, lives and, ultimately, the world. On TED.com, we’re building a clearinghouse of free knowledge from the world’s most inspired thinkers — and a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other, both online and at TED and TEDx events around the world, all year long.
In fact, everything we do — from our TED Talks videos to the projects sparked by the TED Prize, from the global TEDx community to the TED-Ed lesson series — is driven by this goal: How can we best spread great ideas?
TED is owned by a nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation. Our agenda is to make great ideas accessible and spark conversation.
This inspiring video is actually a commercial but you don’t know that until the very end. It is so beautifully done and such an important reminder about what is in important in life. I loved it and I would like to hear what you think. Have a great day, everyone!
