the little boy and little girl plus one extra



I finally had my husband get his drill press out so that I could get these two cute cupcake toppers off to their intended birthday cupcakes. I have had them painted for about a month, but those darn holes in their heads for their candles and bottoms for their picks just didn't get done until now. I think my husband was a little hesitant to do it because sometimes he just doesn't get what I am doing. It is a bit embarrassing when he says, "Now what is this for?" That's why I paid close attention and wrote down the drill bit numbers (I have used the drill press before) so that I can do it next time. Then I won't have to wait or ask for help!!! They are boxed up and ready to celebrate some birthdays with cousins.  I should have photographed them in cupcakes for the full effect, but I can't be having any cupcakes around this house or I might go and eat many and I have been trying so hard to cut out those sweets.  You know!  So, instead they are in brown rice - healthy, but not as cute. 


And, there is one extra. And, he needs a nice home. So, if you want him at your next birthday party on top of your cake or cupcake, just leave a comment by Sunday night (10 pm eastern). I really do only have one and if it didn't take me so long to get this guy done, then I would make a few more to giveaway. But, I am making more to sell soon (that's really why I had to pay close attention to the drilling process!). So, anyways, leave a comment by Sunday.

pick me! I have a birthday at the end of this month-a big 5! (well, not me personally...) If I don't win, can I order one?

Oh these are so cute. I have just started sewing again and am really getting into it and found your blog through the moda fabric bakery site.

I would love to give this guy a home! My son's birthday just passed (he turned 3 in January) but we could use it next year!

I can't wait to go look around your site and see what other inspiration I can pick up. I think I need to start trying a little applique.

Oooh, so cute! I just sent out the invites for my daughter's 2.5 b'day party. (Her birthday is in December, so we celebrate her half birthdays to let her have a little non-winter-holiday fun!)

Oh my these are SO cute!
You have to do some more for sake because if I happen to be lucky and win this one I just know there will be two little girls in this house desperate for one of their own!

Those are absolutely adorable. They remind me of those little vintage nursery lamps with the little wooden people. Like this one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=vt_related_3&listing_id=23810238

My birthday is coming up, and I would love to have this on my cupcake. Boy, my kids would be jealous.

Amazing Mae, you are amazing! My birthday is August and I am still a kid at heart. I will put this on my Ice Cream Cake

I never win these kind of things...I don't think I have ever entered one of these things come to think of it.

I want a chance to win ;).

I also wanted to ask you a question, I am doing a flag for girl's camp and wanted to know what kind of ink you would suggest using for the fabric that might stand up to rain? I liked using the stamps idea.

Oh, I would love one of these for my boys!
