Cupcakes and Cute Stuff :)








It feels like forever since I have had anything to post. You know the saying Life is what happens while you are making plans. :) I finally got alot accomplished this weekend toward stocking my website. This first cupcake is my all time favorite. I am still trying to decide if I will list this one. I dont have anymore of this white fabric and its not being made anymore. I also got finished on of the smaller versions that I call a fairy cake. This necklace is lavender and purple glass with swarovski crystals and the pendant is a vintage cut glass crystal heart I have been holding on to for the right project. I have about 10 more in various stages of being done and colors and fabric design. I was at a favorite remnant store and came accross some awesome new fabric.

As an update on my daughter April,,, she is doing well right now. With seizures you never know, so its just day to day. She is back at work. She is not able to drive at all, so her father and I are doing are best to share what I like calling April Duty! lol Its a large adjustment on my time, but one I have to make. But I am getting into a routine and I am creating once again. Life is good. I also want to thank all of my very special friends for all of the support you have been to me over the last couple weeks. I am a very lucky person to have such incredible friends, thank you from the bottom of my heart... (((()))) gail

Gail, you sure have gotten back into routine! That is one whole lot of work you managed this weekend. I'm so glad things are able to settle into a routine for you again and April is doing well. I know it can't be easy for you. No matter what we are Moms first. Hugs to you for doing it with grace,

Gail I am so happy that things are returning to normal for you and April is doing better.

Your cushions are beautiful and agree I would find it hard to let go a price of fabric that I loved. The necklace is to die for cannot wait to see your other creations.

You are right, not too many young ladies here would be so one the ball. But, then not too many women here see mid-wifes either. Maybe that will change with Obama

I love all the new things you made!
