Acquisitions

I'm usually not a big shopper, but lately I've gone a bit nuts on Etsy.

This little gnome is going to hang in my sewing room at some point. Not my first, or my last, purchase from Creative Apples.


Sometimes I buy things I need. I get my promotional buttons from marajane01. She's absolutely wonderful. Lightning fast, affordable and the quality is always excellent. Aren't my monkeys cute?


This adorable card holder is from my friend Lee Ann, the lovely proprietor of The Cherry Stem. It will be perfect for holding gift cards and frequent buyer cards. Don't you think?

I'm a sucker for paper cupcake liners & cake decorating supplies. Check out HeyYoYo for lots of fun little things to add to your cakes and to bake them in. I love all the cute little extras she threw in.


I did a little baking this weekend. I used some of my tiny heart sprinkles to top these red velvet cupcakes. (I sent most of them to work with Nick this morning, sadly.)

Holy cats! I love that gnome card. I'm going to have to have one. And one for my MIL. I love her cards.

Etsy rules!

Great buys! I think we're going to make cupcakes this weekend to celebrate Mark's birthday.

I love the Hey Yo Yo stuff! And we've got the boy's birthdays coming up in the spring. Thanks for sharing!

Since I'm eating healthy, I've been waiting forever for Valentine's Day to come around to make red velvet cup cakes! They look great!

I love those promo buttons - I will have to check those out for my own shop!
