Cupcake Designs Snow Globes

Remember those boxes I shared with you on the last post?  I'll be sharing those with you a few at a time because there are several.  Today I'm sharing the tiny snow globes cupcakes and they come in those great storage boxes. They measure 45mm or 1.77 inches.

I probably shouldn't have shared that last one because the lettering was messed up, but it's the only sample I had to photograph.  The last two birthday cupcakes have an "on and off" switch on the bottom.  When you turn it to on and blow in the hole on the front the candle lights up.  You can then blow to turn it off. 
I've seen some of these on Amazon if you are interested.  
I'm not sure if I'm going to invest in purchasing these to sell, but I'll try to keep you posted or give a link of anyone that I know is selling them.
Now I get to figure out how to display all my samples!

Exciting News

The UPS truck arrived and it's like Christmas around here!  I haven't even looked inside yet and I'm excited about the design on the boxes!

I need to photograph these during daylight hours, so I'll share more soon.

Maple Place Autumn Folk Art Painting

I've been locked away in that tower on the top right of this scene working diligently on finishing up this painting before fall is over.  Seriously, I do wish I had this round studio room to paint in, but mine is just a cramped little spare room in our house on the second floor.  In the spirit of Thanksgiving though, I am very thankful to even have a room that I can shut myself in where I can dream of quaint little villages where people have the time to stack pumpkins in massive iron urns and line up little pumpkins on their porch railing.  The Lord provides the rest of the decorations. This is a place where people truly are thankful for their many blessings. 

Uncle John and Aunt Dottie, as they are know to all in their little village, have been inviting folks to their home for Thanksgiving for longer than anyone can remember.  They share their home, a turkey dinner, and their blessings with those who have no where else to go on this day.  Family and friends help to make this a day that they will not soon forget.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to change your clock!
Below are a few more images of our weekend in Arkansas.  These were taken by my son, Eric.

Surround yourself with the sights and scents of autumn this weekend and count your blessings.
