Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Cupcake Topper Tutorial

I recently took a cake decorating class. I loved it!

One of my favorite things has always been making cupcakes but I needed to make something for my Cat in the Hat party and with a $20 budget buying cupcake toppers was out of the question.

I started by creating several different designed disks.

I used picnik and made 1 1/14 inch circles. I used this EXCELLENT tutorial from Homemade by Jill. (Thank you so much to felicitouschick for helping me find the tutorial!)

I then used my scallop punch and three different colors of card stock to cut out the scalloped circles.

I put them together.

I glued the pictures onto the scalloped edges and placed a toothpick in between. (with a ton of glue).

I clipped them together, let them dry over-night like this.

And I had my cupcake toppers!

I used a lovely cupcake stand to display these beauties

I love how C1 is fascinated by the smoke from blowing out her candle.

Yummy! Everyone loved them.
