Art Journal… Day 17

Posted in Art Journal, Main at 11:12 pm by carrie

Once upon a time I drew nothing but cupcakes. The almighty cupcake was in everything I did. Some even said that everything I drew looked like a cupcake, even if it wasn’t supposed to be a cupcake. It was sort of… embarrassing. I refrained from drawing the little fairy cakes to avoid being mocked… I sort of got a complex… or cupcake-phobia.

Bow to the very large cupcake topper… one single hydrangea bloom… (are they edible? I can’t remember)

And the little people desperately trying to climb mount cupcake, an afterthought… I think they should be animated. The obsessive little cupcake people.

I relate to you little obsessive cupcake people. And I’m here to tell you… it’s okay, obsess.

    Hi Carrie, Love all your pages! I recently bought a floral shop with retail space. I have started to receive some of the products that I’ve ordered, which is exciting. But, I’ve found that merchandising the products is difficult! How do I learn product placement? Is there a book/resource that you could point me to? I’d appreciate any help you can give me. Looking at your store on the blog, everything looked beautiful!

    My gosh I wish that were real! It’s really cute though.
    Let me just say there is NOTHING WRONG with cupcake obsessions; I even brought proof (feed the fetish I say…)

    I’m so obsessed that I even make cupcake dolls, and on my blog I have a set of specific cupcake related links. (You are on my favorite links list too!)
    So you are not alone :”) it’s a common, treatable ailment.
