~~~SWEET PINK CUPCAKE CONFECTIONS~~~ Calorie Free Temptations


I can't believe it's after 8pm and I'm just now doing my Monday Post!  I've been a busy girl today doing really interesting boring things like cleaning my house and hauling stuff to Goodwill!  I love a happy house and I really LOVE being able to walk around in my clutter-free garage...  I just don't love the process of getting it to that place!

I wish I could afford a maid live-in-maid.  :)

Then I could spend all my time doing really fun stuff like sewing, painting and altered art design work. :)
(Of Course!)

Cupcakes continue to be the rage and I think that's just the funniest thing!  They've been around forevahhh!!!  I found the following info online about these tasty little treats:
(hmmm...or some other sweet treat!)

The term "cupcake" was first mentioned in 1828 in Eliza Leslie's Receipts cookbook. In the early 19th century, there were two different uses for the name "cup cake" or "cupcake". In previous centuries, before muffin tins were widely available, the cakes were often baked in individual pottery cups, ramekins, or molds and took their name from the cups they were baked in. This is the use of the name that has persisted, and the name of "cupcake" is now given to any small cake that is about the size of a teacup".

Interesting, huh?
(or cookies!)

 Greeting Cards, Note Cards, Hang Tags, Teabag Covers and dainty Favor Boxes are coming your way soon!

Did your week start off great???  Hope it's filled with good things!  Only good, good things!
Love to you...

Rebecca-Those are just beautiful..and that makes sense- they were little cakes baked in "cups". I love the little history lesson! My Monday was swamped! xo Diana

Hi Rebecca!
You should just see the way I'm typing right now. My very old laptop overheats easily, especially if I have too many things going on it! I have it lying down on it's monitor and I'm typing at a 90 degree angle! This way the bottom gets some air!
Oh but I'll type this way to visit some friends ♥

It's been a long weekend, helping my father. My sister and I came here on Friday for a weekend visit...but his fridge went on the fritz and I've been here trying to help him shop for a new one and get things organized in his kitchen!

That's been my Monday!

I just adore your beautiful things. My sister is opening up a little corner in a shop that hosts crafters and other sellers... Her theme will be cupcakes! Will you be selling your cupcake boxes?
Your clean garage is inspiring, Rebecca!
Bless you always!

Hmmm... I wish I was not working full time and had the time to do what I really want to do....
But times may be changing in the next year or so....

How sweet these are! Got your package shipped Monday, girl, so you can expect it by about Wednesday.

As always I love all the "things" you decorate & create!!
I think cupcakes are so popular because you don't have to commit to a huge cake to have fun decorating. I know with just the 2 of us if I make a cake I sometimes throw part of it away or freeze it for later. Cupcakes are a 1 shot dessert!! JMO!!
Have a Great Day!!

I'm an Atkins devotee...and they have a recipe for something called Muffin-In-a-Minute...that's "baked" in a teacup! I think I'll start calling it Cupcake-In-a-Minute...maybe it'll taste better.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Cupcakes are so popular but I have yet to paint one. Yours are so pretty on the cards, so soft. I love how you put things together. I am off to find a recipe for one that is gluten free, no corn syrup, and no dairy - I will have to use rice milk. Wish me luck.
