Now is the time for CUPCAKES

About twice a year I make cupcakes for my co-workers. This time around I changed my buttercream recipe and so far everyone seems to like them. In fact...

When I left the cupcakes alone for 5 minutes to get a camera someone snitched a few. I take it as a compliment. :)

I'll bake a little bit more for the weekend, but I'm pretty much done. I like being festive but it's a lot of work for someone as lazy as I am.

Christmas is fast approaching

You know, I keep telling myself that I'm going to get an earlier start on my Christmas crafting and I never do. Perhaps it's because I thrive off of pressure, so if there's no pressure I have no desire to work. Alas and alack!

Ichibancon is also around the corner, and (of course) I'm not ready. I won't be able to hit my costuming goals due to money. Straight up funding. I need 6 yards of black bridal satin and 4 yards of gold lame, copper sheeting, and random gems for one costume. Another needs 4 boxes of LED Christmas lights, 4 yards black cotton, tights, blah blah blah. I have the supplies for Amelia from Slayers and Clara from The Guide (but no wig) so I guess I'll go with those BUT I can't start them till next weekend. *sigh*

Why can't I properly use free time?!? WHY?!?!
