A little bit about Lisette.....

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest I feel most alive surrounded by trees and breathing in the fresh mountain air.

When I am not working you will most likely find me spending time outdoors, volunteering with my church and exploring this beautiful planet with my family. 

This is my place to share my passion for life and to encourage you to take time to find the extraordinary in your life.

Sweets,treats and novelty....meet Smeeks

Over Christmas we visited this adorable store in Phoenix where I came across some of the most delightful paper cups ever. I bought a couple packs and vowed to only use them for extra special occasions. One such appropriate event occurred yesterday, one of my best friends turned thirty, so I was able to break out the goods. I was not only impressed with their rigidity, but the attention to detail they possessed (note: the cute little cupcake on the bottom of the paper cup) I plan on making a stop there each time I am in the area because it is truly a little jewel of festivity and eye candy.

I also thought it appropriate to try a new buttecream frosting recipe and my hand at making chocolate filigree hearts. I took my inspiration from this month's Martha Stewart Living and here are the results. Happy birthday Tana!!
