Another Cupcake Post!

Ok, so by now you guys know that I am on a quest to make the perfect cupcake (vegan or otherwise!) -- and if you don't know, get with the program! :) Anyway, I found this article on msn that showcases the "country's best cupcakes". Here is the article. Anyway, I need to also pick up this book sometime. Thanks Lovemeknot creations and texastesla for the ideas!

I also got a recipe from this blog I read -- I think this is the next cupcake recipe I am going to try from it. They have some awesome recipes!

Wouldn't it be awesome to find a cupcake recipe that is actually kinda good for you? Anyone have any ideas, I'm all for it!

A New Bag + Happy Friday!

Here is a new bag I just put up at the shop. I love the way it turned out, I just love Kokka fabric. It goes so well with the denim.
This has been a long week it seems! I can't believe Friday is finally here. Maybe soon, we'll start to see some nice weather (wishful thinking?). Well, have a great weekend everyone-not too much to report from here, I have some more bags in the works--awesome colors for spring too! It looks like spring sports will be in full swing here soon -- 2 of them are playing in a spring hockey league and my other son has been practicing w/his baseball team since January. I am super excited to see where this team goes, lots of potential there.
Last but definitely not least-Thanks to all who read & comment, it's so nice to "meet" you!

Happy Friday! Snow Day!

Just wanted to tell everyone Happy Friday! Hope you all have a great weekend!

I am working on more bags, so stay tuned. It's a crazy day here today, we have a snow day!

To recap the week, well, I tried my hand at vegan cupcakes. They turned out OK, but I think next time I will use regular soymilk because all I had on hand was light vanilla. Maybe that will make the difference, I don't know! But I love cupcakes!

We wrapped up another hockey season -- I'm kinda sad about that, I love watching my kids doing something they really enjoy. It was a good season and he had lots of fun.

The New Bag is Here!

Here is the new bag I have been promising! I think it turned out great!

Here is a description of the bag:

This large tote is made with dark blue denim fabric and Japanese cotton Echino fabric on the outside with a neutral grey twill interior. This bag features 3 slip pockets and 2 slots for pens or pencils. It also has a swivel hook on the inside so you can clip whatever you want to keep conveniently available like your keys, pacifier, etc. Down the center of the tote, I created a frayed seam to give this bag a unique look. The Echino fabric has a slightly different look on each side.

Has wide shoulder straps at sits comfortably on the shoulder and allows for convenient access to the inside of the bag.

Take a look here for more info!

My Pouch was on the Front Page of Etsy

How exciting to wake up this morning! Not only is it my wedding anniversary, I realized my denim pouch had made it to the front page of Etsy! I am thrilled! It was my front page debut!

If I can get a screenshot of when it was on the front page, I'll post it here!
