It's been a while, hasnt it? come on in and grab yourselves a cupcake, i'll put the kettle on! ;) we've just had some serious snowy weather! it was -18c last tuesday and we're still below freezing tempreature! i know i could do with a hot cuppa! it snowed last monday and what a start to the new year! i love it when it snows, but aidan's not such a big fan (until today!).
Anyway... here's todays post. i am in love with cupcakes. not deeply, just fairly ;) they're cute, adorable and sweet. i had a few plain round boxes lying around, and thought i'd join Aidan on the table while he paints his stuff. so there we were both mother and son on our dining table, painting...
If you must know the truth, as soon as they were dry and ready, i placed them on my bedside table! it sat there for more than a couple of days. very pleased with how it turned out! i sometimes question myself, perhaps i am madly in love with cupcakes!?!
This was so much fun! from cutting the paper napkins to painting the wooden boxes, and later pasting! i first started making decoupage back in JB with my mum. we decorated egg shells and put them on our egg stands and bowls. i wonder if mum still has it!? those were fond memories of me and my mum at our old house.
Oh! before i forget, i'd like to share with you something...
Here's one little announcement:I have A LOT of cupcake stuff to sell. for you cupcake lovers, you will surely melt when you see them! i will be listing them soon on my honeypot. i've got coasters, doilies, cupcake cases, gift bags, notebooks, glass tumblers, bowls, hooks, metal signs.. plenty! plenty stuff! i just have to sort them out first and hopefully by the end of the month or early next month i'll be listing them.
I've been rather disorganized for the past year. really! and i did not get some christmas gifts out. i wanted to give those christmas trees to some friends in the states and up north in holland but i didnt get to. a lot had happened since my last post. you can read it here. we are now all ok, enjoying the snow and the cold weather whilst i'm trying my best to be much more organized!
I hope with this second memo pad up on the wall will help me to plan things! this one's a little bit too small, perhaps i should write only my wish list on it! tonnes of new crafting gadgets and new lines of scrapbooking stuff this year, i'm sure! how exciting! well, no harm in wishing!
And here's Aidan, asking you to check out the snowman we did! its no joke making one. took longer than i expected! will post more snowy pictures at our other blog.
