I'll be out of town on vacation the next few days taking some well-deserved R&R but didn't want to leave you in a lurch so here are two ways to get your cupcake fix while I'm gone......
I recently ordered some cupcake bling from etsy store LORiOLA. Lori makes some beautiful pieces : cupcakes, hearts, bones, skulls and other assorted pendants. All her objects, which she bills as "small wearable works of art that are different from anything you've ever seen before" are made from molten glass, fine metals and enamels that she sculpts at her studio in Raleigh. She ships worldwide and is a pleasure to deal with so if you have been thinking of picking up something a little sweet, a little cupcake-inspired, please do check out her store.
Have you heard about the Kelly Ripa & Electrolux campaign to help support The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund? Through February, exclusively at electroluxappliances.com, people can design and send a special virtual cupcake to a friend, family member or loved one. For every virtual cupcake sent, Electrolux will donate $1 to The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) as part of its $500,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer. So surf on over there and start sending some cupcakes -- the excuse "but I don't know how to bake" won't work this time!
In addition to the virtual cupcake campaign, Electrolux is selling “Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve” T-shirts, designed by Ripa, on its Web site. For each T-shirt sold, 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the OCRF to support research to find a cure.
As I always say: For Every Occasion, A Cupcake. How about some cupcakes to help find the cure for cancer?!? It could happen...REALLY!
Okay, peeps, see you back here next week.
