It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like…Cupcakes?

Posted on Updated on

It’s December and I’m giving things away!

On Friday, I gave away watercolor paintings. Today, it’s cupcakes.

Have you ever played around with Sculpey clay? I love the stuff. So fun. My kids love it, too. Whenever I get out my clay supplies, we end up together at the kitchen table sculpting all kinds of fascinating creations.

One of my favorite things to make is itty-bitty, tensy-tiny cupcakes. Here’s a pic.

Do you want one? I’m giving these away to the first three people who leave a comment below. Please be sure to use a valid email address so I can contact you.
