A Little Overwhelming......

I'm moving. And it's a little overwhelming...all the things that are changing in my life right now. Moving to a new apartment...alone, possibly getting a kitten, all the money I'm going to be shelling out in the next few months, planning a wedding, my fiance taking a job as a music & youth minister. Whew, that's a lot to deal with at once! I know I'll make it through, with the help, prayers, and encouragement from friends and family and knowing that God is taking care of everything and seeing the big picture that I don't see. Thank goodness for that! :) If I had to manage this on my own I'd be bad off!

Look At ME!!!!!

A few of my things can now be found at Hey Pretty Cupcake and Vanessa got interviewed on the Sampler and they posted a pic of my cupcakes! YAY!

Funny Little Guy

Just thought I'd share this picture. He's grown a lot since I first started keeping him. He's even more animated as well which I didn't think was possible! He is getting so good at drawing now, he has gone from huge scribbles to intricate "characters", as he calls them, and the letters A, L and H. He rocks out to AC/DC on his drums (he will soon be getting an electric guitar *cringe*) and sings in his microphone. He never ceases to amaze me with the things he comes up with. Right now he is into Scooby Doo, especially Shaggy. And just now, he has just walked in here with this git-up:
{*snort*} I only wish I could get into the mind of a 3 year old. :)

I Just Got Featured!

Brandi was nice enough to ask me to be interviewed for her blog This Rocks My Socks. She is so nice! And she asked fun questions! Thanks Brandi! :)

I'm so excited! I have talked to several different people about selling my items in their online/physical shops. More than half of them have approached me! That makes me really happy that people like my things enough to want to sell them in their shop! So far, these are the places that I will possibly be selling my creations through in the near future:

A physical shop in OH, Hey Pretty Cupcake , O.A.K in Boston, Adorkable, and maybe Hearts and Crafts in Waco, TX (they haven't given me the go-ahead just yet) and The Makery in Louisville, KY. So I'm gonna be all over the place! Yay! I've got a lot of work to do! So I guess I better get on that!! :)

So Much Fun.....

To figure out new things that I can do. I figured out a new stitch that i've never used before. I had a spontaneous fit of creativity today and i unleashed it on a piece of light pink and black glitter felt. I was totally inspired by the television treasury that was on the front page of Etsy today. I just couldn't resist....

here is what i came up with.

Rainy Days and Cupcakes....sigh...

If only I could spend a rainy day at home making {and eating of course} cupcakes and creating things. I would so love to make things for a living. It is truly a dream of mine that I hope {hope, hope, hope} will be coming true in the next couple years. But for now, I'm going to try my best to get my name out there. I've got a couple consignment deals going and hope to get more soon just to get some more exposure and hopefully some more business as well! Soon I hope to be on It's a really cute website. Check it out.

Anywhooo....I got a few creative things in last night when I should have been finishing orders...oops. I got into Hobby Lobby for something very specific and get so inspired while I'm there that I wind up spending way more than I need to! I'm sure I'm the only one that happens to! Right?? :)
