Cupcake Coin Purse

By on Thursday, September 6th, 2012

Sometimes it’s the sweet and simple things that really catch my eye on Etsy. And today this whimsical mini cupcake coin purse is calling to me! Misala’s shop is filled with adorable treasures and I am already thinking they would be perfect stocking stuffers for everyone in my family. Make sure to look at her Russian doll pouches too.  So stinkin’ cute!

Cupcake Jars

By on Sunday, July 29th, 2012

A few days ago Candid Cupcake shared with you how mason jars are very in right now.  She is so right- they seem to be all over Etsy!  Mason jar covers, Mason jar candles, and of course, Mason jar cupcakes.  And I know these aren’t technically Mason jars but how amazing are these faux icing topped glass jars?    For $28 you get a set of 6 colorful creations made by 12 Legs Curiosities. Perfect for cupcake in a jar or as a favor at a wedding or party.  Love, love, love!


Make Healthy Dog Cupcakes

By on Saturday, July 21st, 2012

I noticed this Pamper Your Dog, Scientific Explorer kit while on a recent trip to Barnes and Noble.  For $19.95 you can make healthy cupcakes for your dog and then make tooth paste to brush your dog’s teeth! After the doggy Sprinkles cupcake our dog had in January I’m sure he’d love it if I made cupcakes for him!

Cupcake Buttons

I have been buying and selling on Etsy for several years and everyday I am amazed by the skill of the many crafters there.   Today I have to share with you one of the best polymer play artists I have ever seen.  Check out these amazing cupcake buttons by Ayarina Designs. Wouldn’t they look perfect with something sewn in the cupcake fabric I shared in this post  a few week ago?

I can’t remember the last time I needed a pincushion, but this is so cute! And it certainly beats the tomato pincushions of my youth! This clever creation is courtesy of Flickr’s A little bit of stitchin’.

Cupcake Fabric

By on Friday, June 22nd, 2012

I have a confession to make- I am a craftaholic!  I love to try new crafts every few months and my most recent endeavor has been sewing.  So far I have made several bags, dresses and beanbags.   It is so much fun to start with a flat piece of fabric and turn it into something new.  So for all you cupcake fans out there who are also sewers like me, I found some great fabric that marry those two loves from  FYI- I have also found cupcake fabric at  Joanne’s, Hobby Lobby and even my local Walmart.


Cupcakes + Owls = Awesome!

One of the hottest trends on Etsy right now are owls.  Owl aprons, owl paintings, owl jewelry, owl everything!  They are so in right now and I have to admit, I have been pulled in too!  So how about owls and cupcakes?  Here’s my favorite fun find for today:
