Catching up with Cupcakes

Well, another week has almost gone by and things just don't seem to get any less busy around here. The parental units have been visiting since last week, so most of our time has been spent visiting and catching up. Every night my mom has been making the most amazing dinners - I'm so glad she has happily taken over in the kitchen. I've forgotten what it is like to come home to dinner already made. What a treat! And they have been keeping busy busy around our place - painting rooms, fixing shelves, installing pot racks, and the list just keeps on growing! I can't believe how lucky I am! Oh, and how could I forget the highlight of this visit: my most talented father has built us a *beautiful* kitchen armoir that I am still in awe of every day I come down the stairs. This is defenitely an heirloom! It is truly spectacular and I will post more about it next week, complete with pictures and more on our collaboration.

In the meantime, here is a little of the craftiness going on around here. Not much time to draw (hence the lack of participation in illustration friday), but since we visit every evening, it has been great opportunity to work on more crafty goods. Yes, here is one of the cupcakes I've been working on. Aren't they sweet? Zero calories, zero fat, zero perservatives and they'll never go bad :)

Now off I go to watch Survivor with the family!

Sounds like you had a great time with your parents being round and totally transforming your home. I love your embroidery and the cupcake cute, I wish I could make something like that. Would love to see more needlework and photographs of your home!!
