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.

The cupcakes are adorable!

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?
