Christmas Just Got Sweeter {GIVEAWAY}

I'm not gonna lie.  I have a sweet tooth.  A big one.  And one of the things I love most about Christmastime is all of the sweets that come with it.  Gingerbread, peppermint bark, homemade pies.....  My mouth is watering just thinking about all of the yummy goodness I'll be eating this month.  YUM!

Since I already associate the holiday with dessert, it should come as no surprise that when I found Amy Miller Designs, I fell in love with her handiwork:


Yes, those are mini-cupcake ornaments!  Could you just die?  You have to see one up close:


From the bead sprinkles to the cherry on top, these handcrafted confections look good enough to eat!  Just look at all of the colors they come in.


And I can vouch for how divine they are in person because Amy was sweet enough - excuse the pun! - to send me one so I could see firsthand.


I chose one with a hot pink polka-dotted liner because I loved the color combination and the glittered cherry.


Fabulous!  And I was pleased to see the size of it when it arrived.


I've purchased so many heavy ornaments over the years that end up falling off the tree, but the cupcakes are a great size and weight.

I am so excited that Amy chose AFOMFT to debut her newest creation - a Baby's First Christmas Cupcake Ornament! 


You can have it personalized just for your little one and it will be a keepsake to cherish every holiday season.
The mini-cupcake ornaments are so good-looking, it seems sad to only take them out once a year, which is why Amy's created a photo-holder version too. 


Such a fun way to display pictures of your cupcake!  You can also use them at parties - to hold food labels:


Or place cards:


And the ornaments and photo-holders would make fantastic favors.


So whether you're in the market for some sugar to add to your tree or to give as a gift, be sure to visit Amy Miller Designs.  I dare you not to buy a whole dozen.
