Sweet Cupcakie Goodness...

It is so exciting to be designing clothes for Spring and Summer! I can almost feel the warm sun on my face. The smell of the ocean and the sound of the waves. Then reality hits as I am putting on my little one's heavy winter jacket, hat and gloves. Don't get me wrong, the snow is a beautiful sight. The crisp air is invigorating. But, I am ready for Spring!
My new cupcake line is coming the 1st of March with short sleeves, capri length pants and lots of goodies!! Also to be added are lots of new cupcake buttons in larger sets including the "fresh n' fruity collection". The Cupcake Bandit Lizard and the buttons below are currently available in the store at SweeeeeeT!

Now on to another installment of "Yummy Sweet Etsy Cupcakes".


My first featured artist is the one and only Ouchie Pouchie Mama. I have several of these little jems in the drawer below my microwave. For little booboos, little aching muscles, and even big aching muscles- these pouches are a Godsend!
Each one is approx. 5" x 5" 100% flannel cotton bag and filled with rice. Each bag is stitched with care for durability! Use your Ouchie Pouchie™ to soothe all those unexpected bumps and bruises in life. Just store in your freezer and remove when needed! Or warm in microwave for about 30 seconds to soothe achy muscles. The Ouchie Pouchie™ is nontoxic, reusable and an eco friendly alternative to ice packs & heat pads.
I can not even count the times we have used ours, and with the most adorable fabric patterns there is something for everyone.

Also available in the store are some amazing swirling toddler crayons. I also have a few sets of these. So when Erin made cupcakes, I had to show them off! My daughter's little chubby fingers wrap around them so easily. No broken crayons or frustration.
They came beautifully and lovingly wrapped like little presents for my tiny one. There are so many different crayon designs available that you NEED to go check them out! In this set of 6 chunky cupcake shaped crayons, the colors in each set are Cherry Swirl, Blackberry Jam, Purple Rain, Summer Grass, Midnight Sky and Autumn Leaves. They are made from brand new, non-toxic crayons. Perfect for little toddler hands that want to join a big brother or sister in coloring fun. They are approx. 2 inches at its widest, 2 1/4 inch long and just over 1/2 inch tall! The perfect gift for your little "cupcake"!
To find the sweetest of gifts tailored to your little ones needs, visit and browse to your hearts content!


Well, your munchkin's birthday is coming fast and you want something different- something original. An invitation that will be put up on the fridge- not just read and discarded. Where can you find it?- Keepsakes by Janelle! This yummy cupcake invitation is just one adorable choice in her collection of invites. You receive 20 4"X6" sets including envelopes and lots of personal attention.

I had the pleasure of doing a trade with Janelle over the holidays, and received treasured keepsakes of my girls that still makes me melt everytime I look at it. This is the amazing collage she put together for me.
With amazing prices and expert craftsmanship, she has something for everyone. So please hop on over to http://www.keepsakesbyjanelle/ , look around, and find your "something"!!

The days of needing toasty warm hats and gloves will be coming to an end soon. We will pack away our cozies until next year and trade them in for tees and shorts. On March 1st, my little cupcake hat (along with all of my other fleece designs)will be snuggled away for next winter. So if you were thinking of purchasing one for the remainder of the cold weather or packing it away for next year, it will be available for just a few more days! They are available in all cake flavors (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, or any color you would like), all icing colors, and all topping colors. I can also top them with any fruit(lemon, cherry, lime, strawberry, blueberry, etc). YUM!!!

Mama, I love you THIS much!

My little girl would come running across the room, arms open wide, with big smiles, saying, "Mommy, I lub you all da way to Okiehoma!"(we had just taken her first plane ride to meet my soon-to-be husband's family in Oklahoma). Like any parent, grandparent, or anyone that loves a child, I would melt- and remember why I wanted to be a Mama in that very moment.

To capture that feeling year 'round, on Valentine's weekend, Feb. 13, 14, and 15, all of my customers will receive a free heart magnet with any purchase! It includes choice of skin color, adult name, and can be personalized with all of your children's names.

For your free magnet with free shipping, hop on over to and make a purchase of any item in the store. You will automatically get your free magnet, just convo me with the details and it will come lovingly wrapped in bubble wrap to it's new home.

Have a wonderful Valentine's Day with all of your loved ones- and remember to let them know just how much they mean to you every day!!

Soul Singing??? WHAT???

Being a Mama, Wife, business woman, and many other things can be overwhelming at times. Sometimes life can throw you a curveball and you feel like falling apart. Even through all of those tough days, there is something that can help pull you out of your funk. Creating! You can pour your heart and soul into a craft, music, anything that makes your soul rejoice - you'll feel rejuvenated and refreshed. Without the freedom to create, one is left with one less outlet for frustration, sadness, reverence, and joy!

This freedom has led me to design a new line of lil' buttons that I am hoping will inspire others to create. I want them to look at these buttons and say- " AAhhhh, those buttons make me want to try making a .....". There are certain fabric designers, such as Amy Butler and Michael Miller that inspire me. One peak at their fabrics and I'm planning outfit after outfit! The problem is that there are so many things to make and so few hours in a day.

I have added several sets to my etsy store with more to follow. Thanks to my fellow Cafemoms I have more ideas than I can possibly make in a month of sculpting! I'm always open to new ideas and designs and would love to do some custom buttons just for you.
So, after the little ones are in bed tonight, grab a cup of your favorite coffee or tea and take a creative break. Do something that makes your soul sing- just for you and you alone. Happy creating!!
