Cupcake Love & Diapers

By on Sunday, January 27th, 2008

I did not notice this nor did I do this on purpose but, my daughters diapers have cupcakes on them.. and yes, I’m serious!

Staying in theme with the recent post about cupcake things at Target, this is my daughter also not willing to share her cupcake pillow with others.

How to say "Cupcake" in doggy?

Our little family has recently, blessedly, been expanded– in a canine fashion. We have been made the, very proud, parent’s of a six week old dachshund puppy. Barrett came into our life in the midst of tragedy, his little mother passed away, and therefore he and his brothers and sisters had to be adopted out. He is at such a very young age that we have to take special precautions that he doesn’t get too cold in these arctic temperatures. So he wears sweaters. I can not rave enough about the benefits of dressing him warmer. He is so much more content and I worry so much less. Something simple like this cute cupcake sweater from Modern Tales is not only adorable, but practical. The only thing not quite so practical is the price tag, at $62.95, its a little too rich for my blood. However, the inspiration is priceless. I know that when I learn to either crochet or knit I will make my way to these free pattern and then customize something cuppycakey for my lil’ guy (in more manly colors, of course ;)

My Lil’ Cupcake

By on Sunday, January 27th, 2008

A week ago (or more, I’ve completely lost track of time), Jess suggested we get ourselves over to Target for, well, all things cupcake. I did just that – and here are just some of the results. My 4-month old daughter, Adaline, shown here sporting a cupcake bib and an unwillingness to share her giant cupcake pillow – and my new dishtowels which make me oh-so-happy ever time I walk into my kitchen. It’s the little things that make me smile … thanks, Jess!

Cupcake Crafts & A Contest!

By on Saturday, January 26th, 2008

I wanted to post something a little different from just shopping cupcake items so I opened up google and did a search for “cupcake crafts tutorial”. The items that I came up with were simply amazing. That there to your left might look like your ordinary crocheted cupcake, but its so much more!

It is an actual crocheted cupcake. Inside of it, is a yogurt container. Isn’t that amazing!

“I came up with these cupcake containers as a multi-purpose gift this past Christmas.

Each “cup” is formed around a yogurt container, with chenille “cake” and “sprinkles” on top.

I filled each one with jewelry, lip gloss, and other fun trinkets.

They’re a great way to re-use yogurt cups and finish off yarn scraps. “

You can find the whole tutorial here.

EternalSunshine is having a Valentine’s give away and all you have to do is comment on this post by February 1st and one lucky commenter will win one of these amazing crocheted cupcakes!

If you would rather purchase one, you can do so at her Etsy Shop. She has red velvet and chocolate, each adorned with some adorable heart buttons!
