Cupcake Saturday!

Good morning!! We hope everyone is having a superb start to their weekend so far! It's another gorgeous day out here. It's a perfect day to open up the windows and do a little pre-summer cleaning and then enjoy the outdoors. We'll see what ends up happening :)
Anyway, it's been a while since we've had a Cupcake Saturday to share with you. The wait was definitely worth it, though! We made these for our birthday cupcakes but are sharing them a few weeks late.
We found these birthday cake M&M candies at Target and decided to make some treats with them. They are a vanilla cupcake base with a chocolate frosting. We didn't want to fill it with anything to keep it from being too sweet. Then we chopped up a handful of candies and top each with that. The hardest part of these cupcakes?? Trying to chop up the candy. We were so happy when we remembered the handy dandy coffee grinder we had- it made life much easier without having to chase M&M's all over the cutting board, etc. These were gone quite quickly.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!

Some More Birthday Wishes!

Good evening! We hope everyone has had a wonderful week! It's a sunny, "last Friday of School" day here and we couldn't be happier! We've finally caught up with all of our orders and side projects, and have some time for 'us' crafting (like yesterday's project in honor of today being "National Donut Day"!) Today's project is one of the birthday cards we made for our niece, who is celebrating(ed) her birthday today:
(Our pictures aren't doing the card justice. Unfortunately. They are much brighter in person.) The card was designed around the saying we found that was just too cute and fun to pass up. The inside of the card reads, "Birthdays are nature's way of telling you to eat more cake!" Because who needs a reason to eat more cake? Or cupcakes? Below is a close up of the little cupcake:
Of course, we used googly eyes and pop-dots to add a little dimension!
Thanks for stopping by! Join us tomorrow for another edition of Cupcake Saturday! It's been quite a while, but these are totally worth it!

I Donut Know...

Good evening! We hope everyone is having a wonderful week so far! We're sure looking forward to tomorrow and then weekend (even though nothing is planned for the time being...) Anyway, we took a little time out of putting our last open order together and wanted to share a quick thank-you 'gift set' we made in honor of tomorrow being National Donut Day. After being reminded that tomorrow was indeed National Donut Day and the rest of the family "bragging" about how they have Dunkin Donuts back home and we do not. So, we had to do the next best thing and make a small little project:

How cute is this?! Who wouldn't want to get this little set?! Ok, maybe people who don't mind spending $6.00 on a cup of coffee...The notecard says "I donut know what I would do without you. Thanks a latte!" (Oh, aren't puns great?!) The little bag is designed to look like a coffee shop that is open 24 hours (of course!) Although we can't get participate in DD's Donut Day, we'll go drink our cup of coffee and craft some more!
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
