New Art and Cup Cakes...

My hands have been busy... I am in several art swaps on swap-bot. I am having way to much fun. Truth be told it helps me stay balanced while working outside my home.


 Fire Element Artist Trading Card, mixed media.
 Mail me Art Swap, pen, colored pencils and oil pastel on a empty envelope.
 Tentacle Bookmark, wood burning and colored pencil.

My friend Melinda and I are making and selling the cutest Valentine cupcakes. She has a wicked Cricket machine and has been cutting out fondant hearts...fondant that tastes so good. We go a step further and put them in little boxes and gift wrap them. So cute!! I have tried a couple of different recipes and settled on two, red velvet with melt in your mouth cream cheese and butter frosting and a beautiful soft white cake with butter, cream cheese and a hint of cinnamon and cocoa frosting. We have sold around 60 cupcakes so far. Sunday we will get together back and decorate them. We got together and made samples so we know about how long it will take. Can't wait. If you have time check out her blog...way cool!

I just have the little Cricut, made one Birthday card....

I hardly find time anymore to do any crafting. Maybe if I gave up my blog and FB........

You are so talented and they all look great! The cupcakes are almost too pretty to eat!
I'm glad you're finding a balance between work and home. I've been back at work for two and a half years and I still struggle with finding the balance!
