Happy Valentine's Day

Polymer Clay Cupcake

 I couldn't sleep last night, so I was up making this jumbo glitter cupcake. It is completely made  of polymer clay. Wouldn't a whole tray of these be cute? I need to make them smaller next time. I made this one for a very special friend for Valentine's Day. Her name is Vicky and she loves anything vintage. She just made a couple of birds that will look really cute with this. I'm hoping she doesn't check my blog today, so I can call her and be on the phone when she sees it. Everyone should have a friend like Vicky.  She has been a great support for me on my artist's journey. She has cried in the valleys when I have been disappointed , shouted from the mountain top with me to celebrate the victories , and has kept me laughing when I forgot how to laugh on my own. She loves me and my art, and has done so much to encourage and promote me.  She is one of the most gracious and generous people I have known, and her husband is the same. So Vicky I hope you like your big fat cupcake and this little surprise.  I know God put you in my life at just this time, to help me make it over this last hill. Do you think we'll get to the top to find a mountain? I hope not! But if there is, I know you will be one of  the people pushing me from behind. I just wanted to honor you and our friendship today. If you read this early, you better cry when you read it with me tomorrow. I'm joking, just call me. If any of you have a friend like this, you are blessed. Leave me a comment and tell me about them.


  1. Hi Cindy,

    What a lucky friend you have. She must be very special indeed to get such a lovely gift and public attention from you to boot! I hope I will have a chance to meet you, as our husbands are friends. Vic has worked with Mitch, and they are tinkering with a project as we speak. Mitch mentioned to Vic that you and he looked at my website at Fools Gold Bears. I'm glad you saw it because you may have been the last people to do so, as it is now officially off the web. If you like, you may see more of my work at I have made my first art contact here in the SLO area, by way of an art doll club. They invite well known artists to teach classes for the club. I'm very stoked to have gotten signed up for a class with Dutch artists Marlaine Verhelst and Ankie Dannen which will happen in April. I have high hopes for being an active and productive member of the art community in this area.
    Warmly, Laure Waytek

  2. I used to tell my daughter that money doesn't grow on trees and once when I said that, the little wheels in her mind switched and she said, "What about friends"? Because I have had such lovely friends, the answer came quickly..I told her that friends grow in rose gardens and the fragrance of a special friend never leaves you even when you are apart. At school she drew a rose garden with roses of all her friends. I guess in your case, friends grow in rose gardens and they make cupcakes!!

  3. you are both lucky to have each other as friends.
    What a super glittery cupcake, lol! Vicky will love it!

    thanks for stopping by my blog,
    have a wonderful day!

  5. Wow, now that's a beautiful cupcake. It looks good enough to eat. This one is better because it has no calories and it was made with lots of love. Your friend is very lucky to be receiving it.
    Thank you so much Cindy for visiting with me and entering my giveaway.
    Hugs, Betsy (aka native California girl too)
