Mad Hatter tea Party...

I'm late, I'm late for a very important date!!!
Today is Vanessa Valencia's Mad Hatter tea Party!

It's true, here we are at the tea party and my post is laaaate!

A little cup of friendship
With a bag of tea
When you drink this
Think of love from me.

I cannot sit and chat with you,
the way I'd like to do.
So brew yourself a cup of tea,
I'll think of you, you think of me.

Tea that helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who're cold.

J. Jonker, Amsterdam, circa 1670


Enjoy the tea party, have a cupcake on me!!!

Autumn Themed Sock Monkey Wedding Cake Topper

New Autumn Themed Sock Monkey Wedding Cake Topper

I must admit, this is among my best yet. I got an order for an autumn wedding cake topper, mostly in orange and yellow with roses, Gerbera daisies, and calla lilies. I decided to make the calla lilies 3-dimensional with more height than I've done on other toppers. I really like the effect.

You can see more pictures here.

Princess Ballerina Birthday Monkey Cake Topper

I love it when someone asks me "Can you make a cake topper that looks like this?"

And then they show me a picture of a cute little monkey wearing a pink tutu with a princess crown and pink shoes! I had such fun putting this one together, and I added it as a shop listing. I hope to be making many more Princess Mo
nkey birthday cake toppers!

New Hair

I got 9 inches cut off my hair last week. I am loving the lightness, and I don't miss it at all. And now Baby G doesn't swing from it like a little monkey!
