Rhaaaaa! I am the cupcake monster! I come to invade your kitchen!

First, I shall take over the fridge.

Those strawberries are done for!

This cat won't stop me!

Don't you dare fiendish feline! Lick me and you're toast!

Aaarggg! Exterminate! Exterminate!

Defeated! Admit it cat, you're defeated!

I won! And now, I shall take over this plate! And that fork. And that belly! Whah! Haha! Whahaha! Whaha-ha-ha!

We did our shopping today and this ferocious piece of bakery jumped out at me and demanded (pretty vocally) to be brought home. Could I say no?
Happy weekend everybody!

Me? Random?!

I'm not a random person really. In thinking, yes. Hardly in writing. Never in blogging. As a matter of fact, I can't remember ever writing "just stuff". There always has to be a story, a "subject matter". So I guess it's no surprise that when Sarah tagged me to do the seven random things meme - it took me a week to come up with them all. Yeah, random like a game of chess...

1. We just discovered butter lettuce. I don't quite know how to describe what it tastes like, except that it's the best lettuce I've ever eaten. It's really buttery and smooth. Yum! Can you believe that I'm saying that about lettuce?
2. I don't know how to work that math. It seems that two cats eat like three and poo like four (unless one of the cats is Cleo, in which case the numbers don't really change. Silly kitty...).
3. I recently tried Borders' honey cinnamon latte (on soy milk, of course) and it was delicious.
4. I bought myself two pairs of shoes for my birthday, shoes I've been obsessing about for quite a while. Why two? Because I rock at finding sales, coupons and discounts online, and the two cost like one pair plush ten bucks. Including shipping and handling. Yep, I'm that good. These are the shoes, BTW.
5. I have a bookmark folder called Stuff I "need". I also have a bookmark folder called Cool S**t.
6. Trader Joe's frozen spinach artichoke dip is incredible. Just so you know. I guess that the hour and the fact that I've been working and on my feet all day account for all the food talk.
7. I love watching America's Next Top Model. So what?

And now - I need to tag seven people. So: Tamar, Michal, Meirav (isn't it wonderful how the internet allows sisters to abuse each other from half way across the globe?), Myra, Dorothy, Tania and Dawn - you're it!



I didn't realize my little "design a softie" walkthrough got a feature in Craft Magazine's blog today! So exciting to be featured on it again. I'm so flattered.
Thank you, Craft guys!

Happy Feline Day!

Do you think enough people know I love cats? Sure seems like it, from all the cute cards I got today.
Yep, 'tis my birthday today, and I'm celebrating turning 27 as mellowly as possible: catching up on the telly, the news, the inbox and eating lots of chocolate-y things, first of which is this cute 'lil cupcake (I asked for one from our bakery, so it's extra special). No worries, I didn't go nuts, my dears. The food colorings are all natural.
