Motionless Wheel, Nothing is Real, Wasting My Time in the Waiting Line

So, I got my wish...


... we are finally getting some snow.

Of course, this doesn't come without consequences. My soiree was canceled yesterday due to the freezing rain.

And, of course, the gluten-free mini cupcakes were already made and ready to go.


And they are delicious. And the recipes are posted. And I made a new flickr account to document the cooking too. I've been a very busy bee.

Speaking of busy bee-ness, I even managed to make a pillow this weekend...


... which was immediately hijacked by a certain two year old. I had to wait for him to go to sleep to get a proper photo...

... that's much more better. It was very nice to make something. I haven't sewn or scrapbooked since October.

It's nice to be getting back in the swing of things.

The cupcakes are beautiful. Did you make or buy the flowers?

You had to post that cupcake picture to torture us, didn't you? But the pillow is very nice - with and without boy.

kirsten said...

you know you can freeze those cupcakes, right? with the frosting and everything.

the pillow is great - inspiring, even! glad you got to be creative.

I don't know which I like better, the pyjama'd boy in red, the gorgeous pillow or the pretty cupcakes!

Ah, hell, just send all three to my house!

Good job all around.

The cupcakes look wonderful, and so does the pillow. Darwin is such a cutie. It's no wonder my kids still want to steal him!

Amy said...

Love your cupcakes (very impressive) and pillow (very jealous -as I haven't sewn anything recently either). Congrats!

Mia said...

yay for getting back in the swing :)

LLA said...

It's very, very nice to see you "get back into the swing of things"

Particularly when you do so in such a lovely fashion! The pillow is wonderful, and those cupcakes! - oh those cupcakes! To quote my friend, The Caretaker, "iDrool"...

Sorry your soiree was canceled, but you can freeze those little gems, you know... Or, ummm, I could help you out with the little cupcake overpopulation problem. It's a dirty job, but I'm willing to volunteer....

And you must, simply must submit that cupcake photo to the Cupcakes Take the Cake Flickr pool....

beki said...

Aw man, too bad your soiree was cancelled. That sucks. I'm sure your adorable cupcakes would have been a big hit.
Love that pillow! So, so cute.

Love the adorable little cupcakes. Great choice! Also really like your pillow. The color red is always a good choice.
