Cupcakes for Obama

The events of this week have left me feeling that things just might be okay in this crazy world. We have a new president (yay!) and I cried all through the inauguration. It was so moving and I have to say that I feel proud. And today, Slumdog Millionaire received 10 Oscar Nominations. Amazing! If you haven't seen it - DO!

I haven't been doing much in the knitting department - I still need to finish the bib I have been working on for months. So, instead I got a little bit crafty in honor of Obama's inauguration. Matt & I offered to have a little neighborhood party to celebrate the inauguration, which I totally failed to capture with my camera. Anyhow, I decided to make some cherry chip (red & white) cupcakes with vanilla (in blue) frosting.

But they needed a little something more, so I made fun little cupcake picks for the occasion. Totally easy, but kind of festive and impressive looking!

I swear that there will be knitting content soon. That bib is nearly complete! Just a button hole and a button, really. Oh, one more thing ... check out this stocking stuffer from Matt! Cute, no? I finally remembered to stick it in my purse and then I swung by Starbucks on my way to work.
