{Cupcake Monday} Happy Birthday Maurice Sendak & FREE DOWNLOAD

If you've been reading me little blog for a while you're well aware of my fondness for Maurice Sendak and his book, Where the Wild Things Are  - it's my FAVE story forevs.  That being said, we lost our beloved Mr. Sendak last year; he would have been 85 today.

To celebrate his life and gift to us, I'm doing a throwback of the Where the Wild Things Are inspired cupcakes that I made for my kids' WTWTA Halloween party a few years ago.  (I swear, there is something deep down inside of me that wants to do this theme over again.....hmmmm????)

(My Original Sketch for the cupcakes - I got mad skills yo!)

I love looking back at some of my old work - it makes me laugh - notice how my cupcakes are sweating...didn't know then that when frozen cupcakes thaw they actually sweat.  Whatevs...they turned out super cute and tasted delish!

Here's a lil' secret.....I've sorta been working on a WTWTA printable set for some time....but still not sure if it's something I really want to go forward with, for various reasons.  Since I can't reach a conclusion, I though the least I could do was share a tiny bit of it.  So, here's a wall sign from my designs for FREE DOWNLOAD.

While you're waiting on that download check out some of my fave Sendak moments, go to's and tales!
