Hey, Cupcake

I've been busy making these little cupcake ornaments for Christmas gift add-ons. The pattern is in Sew Pretty Homestyle Christmas, a pretty good book if you like the cottage-country look like I do, although some projects are too cutesy for me. There are two sizes of these little guys, so the bigger one might make a nice pin cushion. Pretty easy, but after making one following the instructions, I did all the rest my way :) Other than that, sewing has been scarce. Such is life with a three-month-old, although he is getting better at day-time napping.
I have some links to share today! Here is one for an article that has been somewhat life-changing for me, so maybe it can encourage some other mommies too. I don't agree with absolutely everything on her site, but there is definitely some good stuff there.

My sister gave me an iTunes gift card for my b-day and I had SO MUCH fun browsing iTunes that night. She included a list of some of her favorite songs and I bought a couple of her suggestions and a few that I liked. Here's a few of my favorites:

  1. Jason Mraz, I'm Yours
  2. The Weepies, Gotta Have You
  3. Seth Kallen w/Melody Gardot, My Sweet Darling
  4. Colby Caillat, Bubbly
  5. Jonas Brothers, Lovebug
It's okay with me if you want to make fun of me for liking the Jonas Brothers. I'd love to check out some of your favorites, since now I'm on the hunt for good new music, so please share in the comments!
