Craft Fairs

Mmm...how I love delicious craft fairs. I just found out about something particularly delightful called the Providence Open Market which will be running starting May 12th in downtown Providence. It's the way crafting should be--weekly, outside, and indie-tastic. I hope to be at the first one, so we'll see what's what.

Cupcakes

My boss a few days ago mentioned that serving cupcakes has become popular, and now, upon checking my mail, I was zapped a "news" story about how cupcakes are oh so popular right now. HEY! Don't tell me you've denied your love of cupcakes all this time, only to stick your head out of your hole now that they're featured on Yahoo.com as an article! A cupcake obsession has been brewing inside of me for quite some time now, so don't you think you can come back grovelling at the feet of delightful red velvet cupcakes, or even Funfetti cupcakes with the matching frosting with the rainbow sparkly bits. Don't take those delightful, snack-sized cakey joys and corrupt them by throwing magazine covers and Martha Stewart at them! This is great for places like the Buttercup Bake Shop who will see even more business, but damnit, don't mess with the cupcake.

Luxurious Inspiration

Michelle and I went on an a journey to find us some Marie Antoinette so that we could watch it, amidst my screams of "It's MY spring break! I wanna watch some Marie Antoinette!". And as my obliging hostess, we finally got it, care of our mutual friend, Meredith. While I saw no coherent plot to the film, except perhaps maturation on the part of Marie's affection for her husband, I saw a BUTTLOAD of beautiful fabric and shoes and just generally pretty things. I guess it means I'm hugely into ridiculously overdone things, but you know, I can embrace that. Can't pay for it, but I can still love it. So I'm hoping the inspiration will run through my fingers and into the sewing needles.

Yummy. Like all those sweets. And that hot officer she has the affair with...
