I LOVE cupcakes. I’m not sure if I will ever be able to convey via the written word just how much I do love cupcakes, but I do. This painting is adorable and can be found on Shop on Etsy. Perfect for a whimsical kitchen or a little future baker’s bedroom.

Yes, it’s been awhile.  I had to take a break from my etsy crafting to make some exciting birthday presents.  April is the month of birthdays for me.  Everybody has one month a year where half their friends and family all have birthdays and April brings present showers every year for me.  So, while I would love to at least post some of the projects I’ve been working on for my loved ones, I will have to wait until May in case they stumble upon these posts.  For now, I would like to let you know who is inspiring me today:

You have to go through this site for yourself: CreativePal on Etsy. It took me about half an hour to decide to post the one that I chose above, but it was a tough decision. Absolutley wonderful pieces on this site. Check it out!

I stumbled across this piece last week on mishmoshmill’s shop on etsy. It’s the closest I’ve seen to the pieces I’m working on for my shop, combining felting, embroidery and beading. I am such a big fan of these pieces

Hello Everyone!  I got some energy tonight and have been working on some banner options for my Satin Taffy shop on Etsy.  I work with fabric, felt and beading mediums, so I tried to pull some of those textures in.  Let me know your thoughts, I’m all ears.  Thank you.

I love the fabrics on the Janine King Designs tote, laptop cases and wristlets. And, you can get whichever size you want so you can pick up a matching set.
