New Logo & Some blog News!

So, sitting on the kitchen table I drew up an idea of what I thought the Cupcakesniper would look like. (Don't mind the stains..I don't really know what fell on her, but still I cannot bare to part).
My hubby liked my little drawing so much he said that he would make my logo like her and so he did!!





Did you guys like my new logo up top? I was wondering whether I should shrink it or what? I really wanted to fix up my blog a bit but I am horrible at that and end up messing it all up. Any of you that are blog fixer upper gurus have any tips I'd be more than happy to take them!

Other news:


While Alex's parents are away we're dog sitting Apollo! Yipee!! Alex and I, while we were still friends, had gone to the pound together and picked Apollo out, so he's kind of like our baby and having him home is just sooo yummy!!

Yay Bangledash & Apollo aren't killing each other!!

And more news:

Hello to my new followers! Thank you guys for following and I hope you enjoy! ^_^

I just want to let you all know that starting Tomorrow to next Sunday, I will be on blog hiatus, due to some personal reasons, all good I promise. I will catch up on all my blog readings when I'm back and hopefully will be back with some new, more improved posts. So just letting you know that I didn't die off, just on a little break, but I'll be spamming you all with comments soon enough!
For those of you who are new, feel free to check out some older posts! You'll find anything from sillyness to seriousness.

I will miss you guys!!!

ps. I have some plans a brewing for a special giveaway when I get back! Keep your eyes peeled ;)


For now I shall leave you with pretty pictures!

One thing I must tell you, is I love everything make believe, like fairies, and mermaids, and my favorite...UNICORNS!!

  1. <3 the new logo! Uber cute!

    Haha. I remember one of my teachers had a tattoo of a unicorn on her lower back that she got as a teenager. 20 years later she hates it but it's too big for it to be removed without just ruining her skin with scars... haha.

  6. That house is awesome.
    Cute dogs.
    And cute logo, haha.

    I think shrinking it so it has more of a widescreen kind of crop would be nicer, but it all depends on whether or not you can, you know?

    I'm not the best at dressing up blogs either. It's hard with Blogger. I tried, and I failed. Tis why I just found a cute layout somewhere.

  18. Your husband is very talented.

    To me the most enjoyable things in life are when you think up something completely original yet meaningful (cupcake sniper) and see the tangible outcomes.

    Nothing can compare.
