Birthday Party!



We had a birthday party today! Cake was involved.

And cupcakes.

And cupcake "girls."






For the boys, an alternative:




Clementine did not mind a cupcake in each hand.




This picture taken just moments before she realized she could "paint" her legs with frosting -- the actual cupcakes serving as very blunt paintbrushes -- which led to the third wardrobe change of the party.


... whoa. I seriously just nodded off while typing and wrote a completely random sentence. And then I deleted it and, in the way of dreams, forgot it immediately. Hm. Sorry, I have to go bed! This is serious. Sleep-writing is occurring. (Do you think I could write a couple of chapters that way? If only.) More party later.

Those are beautiful little cupcake girls - I love the variety of skin and hair colors, and am a bit chuffed that the brown girl gets to have silver hair! Woot!

A few weeks ago when you posted the before & after shots of your house, my sister Debbie handed her phone to her husband & said "look at my friend Laini's before & after of her house." After looking back and forth at the two pictures 20 times he asked "is she the one with the elf baby?" Debbie then scrolled up to a picture of your little pie and we gushed over her cuteness. Her cuteness is almost too much.

Heidi, it's devil's food inside. The pink food coloring was so powerful! I intended to do powder pink but way overcolored based on the crappiness of usual food coloring, and ended up with this. Then loved it :-)

Tanita, thank you! I wanted to do more hues and combinations but had only bought a few little craft paints. If I ever do more ... ha ha ha. "If." This was so fun. And mindless. I think I may give up writing and sell cupcake girls under a bridge somewhere, ha ha!

(Just kidding. Back to work I go ... :-)

Oh, my gosh, I LOVE the cupcake toppers! I have a 2 year old and a daughter who turns 4 in October, and I would totally buy cupcake topper girls like this (which would make great dollhouse toys, too). You could make a mini-business out of this (in your freetime, right?).

Did you bake the cupcakes, too?
