Thank You Carrot Cupcakes

Monarch Lofts in Lawrence MassThe past few months have been somewhat chaotic for me. A huge project at work (launching a revamped website), a new dog, plus another move for us — our third in 20 months.

Finally, I think we’ve found somewhere to call home…at least for longer than a 12-month lease. Our new apartment is in a converted old textile factory in northern Massachusetts. When it was originally built back in the early 1900s, it was called the “Eighth Wonder of the World” because it was just so enormous. In today’s world, the building is still a monster. Only about a third of it has been rebuilt into modern, eco-friendly housing, with the remaining two-thirds still being gutted for future residential and commercial use.

Give the Gift of Cupcake Soap

There’s a new store at the mall that sells some interesting gifts for kids-of-all-ages. As I was perusing the shelves, I noticed this gift for young foodies:

Cupcake SoapDecorate soaps to look just like cupcakes with shiny glitter and bath crystals. I’m not exactly sure what “soap clay” is but there’s no melting involved. It looks like it’s pliable – similar to PlayDoh. The kit comes with enough supplies to make three cupcake soaps.

The store that I was in sold the kit for $19.99 but you could also find it on Amazon for less here.

For those keeping track, there are only 75 days left until Christmas. (Check out the Christmas 2011 Countdown.)
