Giveaway and New Cupcake Paintings

Today I'm typing my post from the local library because our internet service is out due to weather. We called the local cable company and they told us we were on the schedule for the 15th. Needless to say we told them we both needed the internet for our businesses and they would have to reschedule that for an earlier time. They are going to try. Ha! We are one of only eleven people in town without service. Just my luck! I realize that people are without heat, food, a my problem is minor in comparison. Forgive my complaining.
Anyway, I had so much to post that I made a little trip so that I could get this out to you.
I've been busy painting away and have the following available on eBay:
"Gingerbread Christmas Cupcake"
I can't put a link on this one because it doesn't start until tonight. You can always click on the link in the righthand column for my eBay store.
A little gingerbread cottage and two snow laden evergreen trees are tucked into creamy white frosting on a delicious gingerbread cupcake. A red and white checked ribbon is wrapped around the edges of the canvas and tied in a bow at the top.
Next we have:
"Gumdrop Christmas Cupcake"
The background for this little painting is an antiqued recipe from an old cookbook that I decoupaged onto the front of the canvas. Three little sparkly gumdrops are placed in the cream cheese frosting on top. The cupcake liner is red and green plaid and colorful Christmas lights wind around the border. Touches of glitter are applied to the gumdrops and the frosting and may not show up in this photo. A black and white checked grosgrain ribbon is wrapped around the edges of the canvas and tied in a bow at the top.

"Red Velvet Cupcake"
A cute little snowman, Crystal, is decked out in her red velvet jacket. She is perched on top of a red velvet cupcake inside a beautiful snowglobe. A black and white checked grosgrain ribbon is wrapped around the edges of the canvas and tied in a bow at the top.

Now.....for my giveaway. This is for all of you cupcake lovers out there. I'm giving away a 2010 Cupcake Calendar and.....a print of my Eggnog Cupcake. This is a print not a painting. The original is already sold.
