Today I Want: Texas Forever Print

Someone handed me a postcard version of this print during SXSWi this year and I've hoped to find it again ever since. Etsy to the rescue. Thanks to who listed my Texas Heart Mug in their TeXas treasury, I found the print. It must be destiny.

Hero Design Studio is a Buffalo-based print shop making Texas-y prints. Is that too wrong to be right? I don't think so.

Some other things I fell in love with along the way:

Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein Cake Pops

Wow. Thanksgiving has already passed, and I haven't even finished eating all of my (post-)Halloween (clearance sale) candy. I also hadn't posted these Halloween Cake Pops. I'm feeling quite Charlie Brown today.

In the midst of these Christmas and holiday craft show posts, I thought I should throw in a cake pop post. A belated Halloween pop post still counts especially if those cake pops are made with Objects of Confection's cake balls.

Here they are: Frankenstein pops.

Technically, this is a Monster cake pop and not a Dr. Frankenstein cake pop, but you get the idea. Bride of Frankenstein still plays herself in cake pop land.

Which do you like better? Big eyes or little eyes? Making those unibrows were definitely my favorite part.

This is the first time a cake pop cracking has worked in my favor. Maybe I should specialize in horror cake pops? Maybe not.

Austin Flea Booth with DottiePop

Hello blog friends. It's been a while. I hope you forgive me. I've been quite busy crafting for the kathyphantastic Etsy store and a recent wedding (and all the intensity that comes with being in a wedding).

This Saturday, December 3rd, 2011, kathyphantastic and DottiePop will be sharing our second booth together at Austin Flea. This weekend's Austin Flea will be at The Highball from 11:00 am - 6:00 pm.

Lauren Blazic from DottiePop's half of the booth will be full of plumage for humans. She's been crafting some GORGEOUS hair accessories. I have my eye on a bright pink headband.

My friend Jessica from Objects of Confection will also be at the flea with delicious desserts including salted caramel jars, homemade graham crackers, and cake balls (of course).

Stop by and see us.

The Highball will have drink specials to accompany all the crafts. Here's their short and sweet Austin Flea post on their events page. So yeah, shop, have a cocktail, shop even more. Don't forget to stop by kathyphantastic and DottiePop twice. Sound like a plan?

Proof that kathyphantastic will be at the Austin Flea. Ha.
