The #teambuttercream Project

I’m in love. Like, for real. About six months ago a friend of mine contacted me about custom kitchen set and food for her bakery. Stacey Coggin of Stacey’s Sweets, gave me some basic ideas and free reign and I had an absolute BLAST! 

The original pieces I found for the project were handmade so they were tougher than hell and gave me fits, and more than one injury, during the construction phase but it also gave me a reason to buy a new reciprocating saw with rotating head ~Sweet!~ 

  Props to the guy who made these beasts.  

I found an antique heat register to use as the oven top. I just love how ornate and curvy she is. The copper color set it off perfectly. 

I knew that I really wanted some ornate drawer pulls for the oven doors so I found the perfect cup pulls at D LawLess Hardware. They have every style of hardware I’ve ever wanted. 

See? A perfect match. So paint fumes, some fabric and felt later and the set is done. I know the faucet look crooked in the pictures but I promise it isn’t. My angle sucked.

Excuse the black spray paint line on the driveway. Husband wasn’t too pleased with my lack of attention. 

I gave it a little dishwasher. 👆🏻See? So cute. Next came the food. This is where I begin to die of adorable. The order was a cake decorating set, cookies, and naturally, some awesome cupcakes.  

I’ve listed them all in my etsy shop to take orders for replicas. I just love that freaking cake! I think the whole thing came out really well. It was well received by the staff and is ready for little people, or not so little people, as you can see. 

I hope #teambuttercream loves it as much as I do. 

Keep it crafty people. 


I’m on my way!

Temporary business cards came in and I’m so excited. They’ll work very well until I get my logo made and finalized. Now I just need someone who can to graphic design and will work for wine and pizza. #anytakers 

Keep it crafty!

Dying of cute

Ok, I am dying of cute over here. I’m elbow deep in the middle of a commissioned kitchen set and cupcakes are on the order. I’m so freaking excited about how they came out! Whipped cream and cherries people! Sadly you can’t see the dried paint all over my hands and jeans from finishing up the set (and possibly in my hair).  I’m completely in love with how it’s turning out so far. It seems like every set I do turns into “my favorite, so far” so I guess that’s a good thing. I’m working really hard to get my new craft room put together so it’s a presentable work space. YAY for empty nests!!  It’s functional but I have fun plans for it. I’m also working to get more stuff up in the etsy shop. It’s been slow going with work and actual adult responsibility but I think I’m finally getting to the point where I can focus on it. I know. About damned time right? Fingers crossed for productivity. 

Keep it crafty people.
