Monster Cupcakes! RawR!

I made cupcakes for a Halloween party this year. I made cookies last year and wanted to do something different this year.

They are pretty simple. I just used a grass tip for the green fuzzballs. I decorate cakes for a living so I've got all the equipment. :)


I'm happy with how my Frankenstein's monsters turned out. I couldn't help but make at lest one bride of Frankenstein.  I LOVE the noses!

These blue buddies are made with a star tip. But watch out, they will bite your fingers off!

Now these Draculas sport a nifty widow's peek. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the blood drips that I added to their fangs.

And last but not least. MUMMIES! The wrappings are made with the flat side of a ribbon tip. These three amigos are thick as thieves.

Now I think next year I will step up and make an awesome spooky tiered cake.  I have an idea in mind...

Velcra - Quick and Dirty

I saw this video a long time ago, and I fell in love with it.
Velcra is a Finnish industrial metal/electronica group.

Anyway, I love the part when she holds up the signs that say quick bomb and dirty bomb.

They were super easy, took no time at all. I think I want to make them into pillows.

As you can see I haven't do anything with them yet. I just finished them the other day.

Sadly no one will get the reference. They are not even on iTunes. :(

I love how inspiration can come out of nowhere.

Odds and Ends

I finally made my corset embroidery into a pin chusion.

Here is that only mouse that I will EVER let in my kitchen.
He looks so happy on his little tower of tea cups.

I've been doing a lot of satin stitching lately and I was a little burned out, or rather my poor little hand!

But I couldn't resist! This really didn't take me that long to do.
I love how colorful it is.

My husband the artist

My hubby posted on his blog finally! I have to give him a hard time (he doesn't post very much)
I've done a couple embroidery piece that featured on of his girls.

Like this one and this one too.

He has great potential. I can see him completing some of his bigger projects and putting them on our Etsy shop. I think that they would sell. I have faith in him, he would do so well. He, like I have a hard time convincing ourselves that our crafts and art are good enough that other people would enjoy it too.

Halloween kitchen collection

This is my normal everyday kitchen decor.

I just happen to LOVE spooky stuff and well it's just to cool to display once a year.

Just some cool crap that I love. :)
