cupcakes and cornish coast

My friends little girl had a 4th birthday party the other week
and as she loves dressing up and having toy tea parties. I thought
I would make her some little cakes and a cute apron.
I had some cath kidston remnets left from some cusions ,made for one
of the shops (Adorn in saltash) .
so I used this to trim the apron and painted up a wooden box for a tray.
I was quite pleased with the end result, might make some for my shop?

A break in the weather also allowed us to have a day at the beach, my favourite place
to be in cornwall in winter.
The beaches are dead and the sea can be dramatic and beautiful this time of year.
I love going to watch the hugh swells that come with the season.
Although the sea was relativly calm the treturus walk down to boiler bay was
a tad scary.
The cliff is a sheer drop at some points and the scrabble down was very dodge but

I have also been clearing out this month ready for christmas.
I seem to hoard so much stuff it just bursts out the boxes and
litterally has broken my shelf through sheer weight.
I decided enough was enough and started putting together these "create something" packs.
I have already sold three on my etsy shop so think it was a good idea however you can guess
what the money is going on, catch 22 i think?
