The cupcake party on Sunday was filled with laughter, food, sweets and punch. I was feeling particularly girly so I made this champagne punch (champagne optional...well, not for me, of course). I was amazed at the vast array of cupcakes that arrived at my table. Six wonderful gals and six totally different recipes. Perfect. We are still eating cupcakes around here and each time I take a (rather large, gaping) bite out of one, I think about the person who made it. Corny, I know. But tomorrow's the corniest day of the year, so I guess I'm just getting warmed up.

I especially enjoyed looking at my loot from the craft goodie bags I had people bring and exchange. I spread them all out on my sewing table, just like a kid after trick-or-treating. I haven't felt like that in quite a while--just giddy. Maybe it was the sugar, but I don't care. Thanks, ladies.

Their blogs are just as creative and diverse as their cupcakes--so pay them a visit!

Tamie has a free crochet pattern for the little hearts she brought us on her blog. Perfect last-minute valentines. I'm off to try and get some good pictures of my little purses which didn't make it into the shop on Monday like I planned. I might just go take some cold medicine and lie down instead. All this linking has made me tired. Happy Wednesday!

Thank you so much for a great party Lauren! It was so much fun!!! I hope we do make it a monthly even...or at least bi-monthly or something.
What's next? Fondue? I'm ready!
