Indie Artist Julie Weller

I recently made a yummy purchase from Julie Weller on Lollishops.  When I received my package I was in Aw!! I bought a cupcake pin cushion.   The packaging was so beautiful and she included some goodies along with my item.  I really love the pink cupcake ornaments. They look so real!  

I asked Julie if she would like to do this interview explaining her craft and inspiration.


What is your Lollishop name/link?
The Cupcake Cupboard
www.lollishops.com/cupcakecupboard

What is your specialty?
Pincushions and all things cupcake

How Long have you been doing your craft?
I rediscovered my creative side about 2 years ago when I discovered online swapping.
My obsession with cupcakes led me there and opened up all kinds of possibilities for me.
I started experimenting with pincushions just over a year ago.

What inspired you to create the lovely item's that you make?
I LOVE CUPCAKES!!  Anything having to do with cupcakes makes me smile.
I've tried to incorporate cupcakes in all kinds of crafts and art media, but somehow I keep
coming back to pincushions.  Putting these sweeties together is almost like decorating
cupcakes for me - without the calories!!


What is your absolute favorite item that you make?
My Half-Pint Pincushions are my favs! 
They make GREAT whimsy jars - fill 'em with fun bits & bobbles!

Are there any special tips you would like to share on how you promote your
business?
I've found that flickr is a wonderful way to "show off" your work.
Blogging is another great way to share your creativity!

What do you love mostly about Lollishops?
I love the sweet family that is Lollishops.
Sadie (the head Sweetie) is wonderfully supportive!

Are there any other venue's that you we can find your lovely creation's on?
I also offer my creations on etsy (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5245356)

Do you have any advice for other indie artists?
Do what makes you happy. 
You never know when something you've created will make someone else happy too!




Cupcake pops






Little cupcakes on lollipop sticks. What can get better then that? Their so cute. I made them with my daughter and turned out really good. It's a long process but they turn out great. Here are some pics.

And the last pic is of Callie enjoying the finished product. I think she gives it 5 stars. LOL!

Cupcake ornaments at K-mart

Found this cupcake ornament at K-mart for $5.99. It's a Martha Stewart ornament and looks so cute on the tree.


Paul Frank cupcake watch


Check out the cupcake watch I just bought. It's so girly. When I seen it, I had to have it.

If you would like your own, it retails for $60.00 at Zappos.com


Trip to the ICE exhibit in Orlando Fl

I took the girls to the ICE exhibit that they have at the Gaylord Palms hotel in Orlando and had to get a picture with this cute cupcake. It's so pretty. The whole time Callie kept saying bubcake (thats how she says cupcake). I think she's going to have an obsession with cupcakes like her mommy. :)

New to this



Alright, I wanted to start my own blog about my cupcake obsession.




Not sure when my cupcake obsession started. I grew up loving cupcakes more then I liked any other sweet out there. Not only that, their just so pretty. :)

I want my first post to be about the beautiful cake my sister made for my birthday. It as so pretty I didn't want anyone to cut it. Anyways, she did such an awesome job on it.




The actual cake was red velvet with cream cheese frosting in the cake. The icing for the top of the cake was vanilla buttercream. It turned out so good.

Thanks Tonya for making me such a beautiful cake.
