S’more cupcakes, please!

September 25th, 2010

A couple of weeks ago, I saw an exchange between a couple of friends on facebook about plans to meet up for cupcakes. I jumped in and invited myself, of course! That Sunday, we met at The Flour Shoppe — a somewhat new fixture in the Glebe. And boy, am I glad I bumbled my way into this get-together! I was highly tempted by the Vanilla Latte and Macaroon flavours… but I ended up choosing the S’more:

AND they also include the graham cracker too:

Yes, it was delicious. None of it was overly sweet, even the marshmallow. What a neat little spot for a nice treat!

While we were there, so were a few people I happen to know. Don and Jenn of Foodieprints (if you’re an Ottawa foodie, their blog is a must-read) were getting interviewed and photographed by Kym of relishing.ca for her One Hundred Strangers project. This is an action shot I stole:

But you should really go check out the real post (and real photos) that came from this.

And heck, if you haven’t already, check out when Kym interviewed my sister and me about The D.A.D. Project, back in July.

Sweet things, sweet people, sweet Sunday.

Sincerely flattered

September 9th, 2010

I got the nicest email a little while ago… it came from a gal I’ve met a couple of times through friends and craft shows. She wrote to let me know that she’d recently gotten hitched, and had borrowed the idea of making her own paper lanterns from my “Big day” post. Here’s a shot of what she came up with, alongside her gorgeous bouquet:

I can’t tell you how flattered I was to see this. I really like the raw edges and sewn-up side — nice touch!

Congrats, Evonne, and thanks for letting me know about your handiwork. Here’s to newlywedded good times and more to come :)

[and as a post script... yes, I've been a blogging delinquent. But I'm back, and hopefully a lot less sporadic!!!]
