Surviving the end of the world is delicious!  Even if the world didn’t end, there’s lots of excitement brewing with Christmas, New Years, and even a trip to NYC!  Like a kangaroo, I’ll bring back lots of yummies in my belly with pictures of devoured food stuffs to share.

Today, I’ll be sharing gingerbread cupcakes.

    LOVE piggies!! Is she online? I’ll have to check it out. For now, it’s just me and ole mr. tripod and I use a flip cam, lol. It’s laughable, really but I’m saving up for better equipment.

    Please, you are so pro IMO (though my oppinion doesn’t count for much-lol). Well she’s kinda sorta online…she just doesn’t keep her website updated and most everything in her shop isn’t on there. But you can buy her homemade bath/body products on her blog and if you need piggy stuff, call the number on her site, she can get it for you!
