Addicted To Pinterest?

Hello, dear friends!
Anyone out there addicted to Pinterest?  Oh, oh, I see a lot of hands!! I woke up today at 5AM, reached for my iPad and browsed through interior decor sites.  By 6AM, I wanted to start moving furniture around, but contained myself, did not want to wake the rest of the family.  But, for sure, since I can't move or buy new furniture at the moment, I'll settle changing  things around.  I am known for changing things around often......
Took a pause writing, a big pause.  Some pieces of furniture from family room and living room have reached new destinations.  Everything looks pretty cool.  Next room, the kitchen!  I have so many things and use all of them often, however, I like to see my granite counters free of appliances; only a vase of fresh cut flowers and a stand with the sweets of the day.  Is that possible with all the  cooking and baking?  I've tried many times to place my Kitchen Aid mixer inside the coverts, but taking it out and back in, is quite a job.
My head is always going, thinking of the next project. I want to do so many things, more than I can physically do, but try my best.  Lately, I am very interested in decorated cookies.  This past weekend, I made some for a baby shower, similar to the ones I made for my daughter's baby shower.  These were individually placed in cello bags sealed with pink/white polka dot labels and pink ribbon.  Love making all these things.  I want to thank my daughter, Anelle for helping me with the printing.
I know the pictures are not the best, but my camera is not working.  Took pics with my iPhone.
Usually, when baking for an event, I take pictures in a hurry, because I am pressed for time, so excuse moi.

I've baked so many cupcakes through the years.  Let me show you some of them.  You know, some of these even have a name.
This one is self explanatory: Chocolate Cookies and Cream Cupcake

business card. So pretty and delicious: Strawberry Cupcake
