Cupcake Coasters and a Candy Apple Cupcake Painting

Last year I signed with a licensing agent.  I have several contracts for projects in the works and now my first licensed product is available.  These stone coasters with my cupcake art on them are now available through
I nearly fainted when I saw that these were on their website! I'm so excited and can't wait to get my samples in the mail. 
Today I finished another little cupcake painting and listed it on eBay.
Chunks of apple goodness are mixed inside this spice cupcake topped with creamy caramel frosting. Red hot candies are sprinkled on top of this yummy concoction wrapped in a red and white dotted liner.

Try a few red hots in a cup of hot tea for a real treat!

I want to thank everyone for your prayers and concern for my father in law.  We will be bringing him to a nursing home near us next Tuesday so that we don't have to continue driving 4 hours to Branson to visit him there.  He will continue with therapy in the nursing home for a while and then we will go from there.  Today he had a feeding tube put in because he hasn't been getting enough nourishment.  This is only temporary until he can gain enough strength to do his rehab.  He has a long road ahead of him.  Thanks again for your prayers.

Yarn Shoppe and Cupcake Paintings

I've had a few requests for a yarn shop painting and here it is! 
Stella and her sister Delores own the yarn shoppe in the center of town. New friendships have formed with the wonderful customers who sign up for their classes. You could say they are a close knit group. The two sister's spent the day decorating the shop for autumn and whipped up a batch of pumpkin bread to serve in their classes along with a mug of hot spiced cider.

For those who don't want the expense of an original painting, it will soon be available as a print which can be personalized.  This painting is listed on eBay and you can click on the title above if you are interested.   The auction ends tomorrow night. 

I also have a little cupcake painting that I finished yesterday and listed on eBay.

A caramel surprise is tucked in the center of this dark chocolate cupcake with turquoise frosting. This treat is topped with a caramel acorn dipped in melted chocolate and then in chocolate sprinkles. A turquoise and brown dotted ribbon is wrapped around the edges of the canvas and tied in a bow at the top.

I saw these little acorns on another website and they are simply made with caramels.  You place 5 or 6 in the microwave at a time for about 5 seconds.  Roll between you hands to shape like an egg.  Dip one end into melted chocolate frosting (from a can) and then into chocolate sprinkles.  I can't wait to try this perfect treat for Autumn!

Update on my Father In Law

Thanks to everyone for all the prayers.  It really means so much to the family and my father in law, Jim.  He is still going through rehab this week and we hope to see more improvement.  With strokes they can improve one day and go backwards the next day.  Your continued prayers would be appreciated.
Here is Jeff, the horse, outside the restaurant once again dressed for Halloween:
