It's a cupcake kind of day...

So after three days of no solid food, I have been in Thanksgiving leftover heaven. Yay real food! My hubby's procedure went great, and all is good. My need for something other than broth and Jello manifested in dozens and dozens of paper cupcakes.

That's right - paper cupcakes. With some fabric and buttons too! I have made these little cupcakes for scrapbook pages and cards, and thought I would put some on Etsy and see if other people might like them too! There are two varieties, and lots of flavors :) Do you know what one of my favorite things about selling crafty goods is? Making up the names. I love making up names for my creations. Like these cupcakes, for example. In my shop you will find Aunt Greta's Cupcakes, and Cousin Nellie's cupcakes, Winterberry and Polkaberry... I don't really have a cousin Nellie, but I do have an Aunt Greta, and the pretty checkered red fabric made me think of her. Nelli's cupcakes are inspired by Little House on the Prairie, and Nellie's surprising success at the culinary arts...

While listing these little cuties, I have been entertaining myself by playing "Farmville", a game on Facebook. Hello new addiction!

Well, I have another batch of cupcakes coming out of the oven - I mean, the studio - so I need to quit chatting and get those sweeties on the shelf while they are still warm!

Have a great day,
