So, I’m releasing another new piece I did about a month ago. Also part of a series of cupcakes.
This collection is BRIGHT (and this one being the most muted one of them all)! I’m not used to using this much color, but trying to push my creative boundaries (not to mention that most people don’t typically associate cupcakes or themes that include cupcakes with drab colors).
Right now I’m in Connecticut where my sister’s power was finally restored after 6 days without (still half a million without power in this small little state!). I arrived tonight and in the dark, but it already looks like a warzone with trees down everywhere. My sister said that her usual jaunt to my parents place 5 minutes away took a full hour earlier in the week as most streets were closed due to downed trees and powerlines!
I packed a bunch of sweaters, PJ’s and wool socks, but alas, they have heat now. This weekend we are off to our folk’s house to do some heavy duty tree removal. It’s quite a scene in the dark (the entire lower part of their driveway is covered with giant broken tree branches and entire limbs are just listlessly hanging from the trees in their front/back yards and will need to be taken down by chainsaw). I can only imagine what it’s like in the light!
Here’s to counting your blessings. Safety of your family, a warm place to rest, food to eat, hot showers, and yes, cupcakes are a blessing too. Sometimes you have to include the small blessings in with the big!
