Stuffs

IMG_6193

Earlier this year I posted a cute candy button display that my friend Julie made following a tutorial on a website called Bake it Pretty. And even though I had heard of and seen their site, I had not really looked around it all that much… until recently.

**Warning… enter their site at your own risk or else you might just leave it with a whole bunch of stuff you didn’t know you had to have…

IMG_6274

… like these superty-duperty cute baking cups.

They sell lots of fun designs you probably won’t find in your local craft or grocery store…

IMG_6277

… unless you can read this.

IMG_6278

or know where to find these.

IMG_6253

If you visit them, you might be tempted by shiny things.

IMG_6207

Or these. I was forced to buy them in several colors…

IMG_6255

… and sizes.

The website made me do it. I promise. I mean if I just bought one color, which one?

Red? Of course, but what about black? How often do you come across black gingham print baking cups? Or orange? Or blue?

You know… I didn’t even need any more baking cups. Like for the next couple of years … I’m good.

IMG_6214

But, then there’s these. I mean how cute can you get?

It’s funny – right before I found them I was wanting to make some popcorn bucket cupcakes, but figured I would have to make my own wrappers because I knew I would never find any with stripes. So instead I made these flat brownie popcorn bags. Then, right after making them, voila – perfect little cups.

And now, I can’t bring myself to even bake in them. They’re so cute I don’t want to be without them. I just want to look at them. Is that weird?

Don’t answer that.

IMG_6280

And the cute little poem doesn’t hurt either.

IMG_6235

More baking cups. These, like the striped ones stand up on their own. You can place them right on a baking sheet and go.

However, I haven’t used these yet either. I have a problem.

IMG_6263

I worked my way through all the sections of the site and couldn’t leave without having these tapes and twine in my life.

IMG_6238

And look at these cute little twist ties in pink, purple and tiny hearts.

Adorable.

But they don’t hold a candle to these…

IMG_6240

Dying over here. Plus, they’re kinda perfect for packaging cake pops.

IMG_6224

You can even make your drinks look cute. Love these straws.

If you want to see them in action, check out how good they look with Tartelette’s ice cream sandwiches. Not that her pictures aren’t already perfection.

IMG_6286

And look, a button mold.

I had to have one of these, too. You know – just in case I ever want to make my own candy button display like this one.

IMG_6288

P.S. – I may or may not have also purchased these not exactly kid friendly candies. But, if I did – the website made me do that, too.

I have a huge problem avoiding the dollar section at target. I am always buying something for myself or my boys that I probably don’t need. Also I am a huge sucker for cookbooks, especially if they have really pretty pictures in them. Also books I love to read and my stack of book I have to read is always growing much to my husbands dismay LOL.

I love buying fabric and patterns. I drool over the type of person I could be if I made a certain outfit or household accessory. Quilting tools are another weakness of mine. Followed by baking accessories. I love the nordicware cake forms, but don’t buy them because of space constraints.

I can’t stop buying crafting supplies. I have tons of it and am not using them fast enough! As I’m planning my daughter’s 1st birthday parties (2 parties – 1 in 2 different states) and a baby shower around the same time, I’m not only buying craft supplies, I’ve started buying baking supplies in an attempt to make some goodies. I have boxes all over my house with no storage! :P

Aprons and material (for making my own) I’m a sucker for a half apron with pockets and bows and frilly trim at the bottom (swoon!) ..
My sister in law even bought my 2 year old and i matching aprons for Christmas because i love them so much..
It’s gotten to the point that i have had to give a few home made ones away to friends because i have too many…. But they love them and share in the cuteness.

It’s all about the love.

Like these little cupcake liners and popcorn things, I can’t stop buying miniature things. They sell baby cokes, I buy them immediately. What they’ve made tiny travel size deodorants? Yes please! I mean isn’t this the reason we all love cupcakes so much — they’re TINY CAKES!!! Hooray for mini anything!

I have a weakness for pretty paper cupcake cups. I already have a little collection going. I love making cupcakes and you’ve got to have cute liners to match whatever occasion it is…or pretty but “could be any occasion” ones for those kind of cupcake ventures. I cannot have enough of these.

Oh my goodness. I have become addicted to cupcakes recently–I bought polka dot liners for my daughter’s dot-themed first birthday, and am already planning her second. One potential theme–buttons!! Must. have. button mold. And many, many cupcake liners. (By the way, the trick is to by two sets–so you can savor the cuteness AND use them).

At the moment, I too have a cupcake addiction. I’m buying anything to do with decorating cupcakes. Cupcake wrappers, books, decorating tools, sweets… you name it. I have to stop myself going into homeware stores because I keep buying new stuff! It’s an obsession.

I can’t stop myself from buying white chocolate mint mochas from Caribou Coffee. SO GOOD.
