I finally added my Peace and Love Butterfly to my website. It took me long enough! :-)
I was inspired by John Mayer's song Waiting on the World to Change. I LOVE that song and daughter #3 Loves him! ;-)
If you're interested in this peaceful butterfly, go here.
Mosaic Cupcakes have been very popular and keeping me very busy!! Yay!!!!! Especially the Nest Cupcake. I'm literally making cupcakes as they're ordered, so if you see something you like and it's sold, feel free to shoot me an email and request something similar.

In yesterday's post, I told you that I was painting my youngest daughter's room while she vacations in California. Well, the center color is the color I picked. It's from Lowe's, the Valspar brand (what happened to American Tradition?) and it's called Sea Exposure. Isn't it beautiful?! She pointed this color out to me a while back (or something similar) so I think I made the right choice.
I have the room half way done and it is stunning! I had hoped to finish it, but too many SAMA conference fires to put out. I'll be glad when next week is over. Oh, and I had Bunco last night. What fun!! I didn't get home until 1:00 a.m. !!!!
Well, back to painting. I'm already behind today.

There is soooooo much work that goes into setting up for an Art Show or an Art walk that I truly do not like participating in them. Matter of fact, each month I say to myself and anyone listening that I'm not going to do this next month. Then I meet some of the nicest people that stop by and chat and before you know it, I'm signing up for the next month.
At the Chandler Art Walk last week, I met the nicest woman named Dayl. She is now the owner of this pretty little mosaic cake and a couple of mosaic cupcakes. She stopped by my house last week and poor thing, I about talked her head off! I tend to do that when I really click with someone. So now, I suppose I'll be at the Art Walk next month. You just never know who you'll meet.
Now I'm off to finish up something very cute for Miss Artsy Mama and of course there's all of that SAMA volunteer work that I'm drowning in. Talk to you soon my dears!!

For any of you locals interested, Chandler Artwalk is tonight in downtown Chandler from
All I can say is I hope I have the energy to set up for it! I stayed up until 3 a.m making this butterfly. I still need to grout it, but I'm hoping to take it with me tonight. I am one tired girl!!!!
I did get the bills paid, the cupcakes mailed and the laundry done and a lot of Mosaic Conference stuff taken care of. Tomorow the house gets scrubbed!!!! Well, gotta go........I smell the coffeeeeeeeeeee

Today, I am feeling a little over whelmed. I didn't mention it before, but for the past few months, I've been working as a volunteer for the Society of Mosaic Artists. They are having their big annual conference in Arizona this year and I am their Vendor Marketplace Coordinator. The conference is March 21-25 and as the date gets closer, things are getting crazier and crazier! I'm guessing that I'll think twice next time I feel like raising my hand to help.
Anyway, my husband finally went back to work today (yay!). He's doing much better! I love him very much, but let's just say that him being home for a week and a half has made my life just a little crazier! Daughter #3 was having some lower abdominal pains during this time.....bad enough that I had to take her into the doctor and after several tests, everything seems to be fine. Not sure what it was, but hope it doesn't come back. And then there's daughter #2.........I don't even have the energy to go into that, but let's just say I have a worry knot on the side of my head just for her. My house is a mess, the laundry is piling up, bills need paid, cupcakes need to be mailed, and so on and so on. So, like I said, I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed today. Now, for something lighter......the next mosaic project I have on the mind is Butterflies :-)
Have a great day everyone!! And thanks for listening.

Here's my newest little cupcake. I'm ready for Spring!
I used several pieces of vintage china from several different china patterns in all the fresh Spring colors. Then I painted the little egg and put it on top and added the wings that are made from a vintage book. To finish it off, I made the little nest around the egg. I'll be making several of these, so if you're interested, they can be purchased here. Of course, they will all be a little different, as I'm using several pieces of vintage china.

This sweet little cupcake is going to Miss Amber in sunny California! Her colors are pink and aqua so I think this cupcake will look fabulous in her house. I like how the cherry looks like it's been dusted with pink sugar. YUM!
A sweet cupcake for a very sweet person!! Enjoy Amber!!!
More cupcakes are coming up soon!
p.s. The hubby is doing great!!! :-)

Here is one of my newest cakes. Her name is Sweet Cake and sweet she is! I'm enjoying making cakes in my studio instead of in the kitchen! These cakes don't taste as good as the real thing, but they do have less calories! (Ha!) If you want to see more details and more cakes, go here! Well, I must get back to the studio, as I have cupcake orders! (Yay!)
