Something Sweet – Chocolate Frosted Cupcake in Watercolor

Chocolate Frosted Cupcake in Watercolor

This week I spent some time painting sweet things. Chocolate, to be specific. And all for my mom’s birthday.

Sometimes birthday presents don’t need to be wrapped. Don’t get me wrong, there should be some presents to unwrap! But they don’t ALL have to be, do they?

I painted this one for my mom’s birthday this past weekend. Her bathroom is decorated in chocolate. That’s right. Chocolate. No, it’s not dirty fingerprints from over indulgent children. It’s been done on purpose. From a poster on the wall about it’s history, to candles shaped like truffles, and everything in between… chocolate!

I thought a chocolate frosted cupcake with a pink liner would match her bathroom perfectly! But it also matched her birthday theme… so instead of wrapping it, I set it out to decorate! 🙂 Double duty!

Gathering here.

The Scriptures are not like cake

At the end of February, the ladies from our church will be having our Women’s Retreat.  I mentioned already that I shamelessly invited myself onto the committee and the other ladies have graciously allowed me to take on the decorations.  We’re using a box retreat from Group called Sweet Life Cafe, so I’m trying to keep my decorations with that theme, but making it all as special as possible.

One of the things I like to do when planning a party, is to put as much as possible into the little details.  I painted this little guy for one of those details.  We’ll use it with the session that talks about bread.  I saw the quote on Pinterest and knew at once I wanted to use it.  I’ll scan it into my computer and resize it for printing.  I’ll be printing one for each of the 60ish ladies attending.
