Sweet Birthday Wishes to Margaret

Bead Bedlam

One of my favorite things about running CakeSpy is meeting all sorts of wonderful people who I might not have met otherwise.

Take for instance Margaret, a class act and Very Cool Lady (you  can view her in cupcake form, at the top of this post) who I met, oh, probably about 5 years ago, shortly after I started the website. Margaret was, at the time, a college student in New York, who contacted me to do some custom artwork for her.

And after I did one custom piece, I did another. And another. 

Throughout the years, we got a nice banter going on, and when her family came to Seattle for a visit, I finally got to meet her in person when I had a store!

And when her family came back the next year, we visited again.

I don't know exactly when it happened, but somewhere along the way, we became more than website writer and reader, artist and consumer--we became, well, real-life friends!

It's amazing to see what kinds of relationships can start and grow through a sweet little corner of the internet such as CakeSpy. 

I've got to be honest, though, there is another purpose in my writing this: yesterday was Margaret's birthday and it slipped my mind to say Happy Birthday! I promise, though, I thought it.

So, I'm just taking a few moments to share some of the artwork I've created at Margaret's request over the years...and to say thank you Margaret for making my life sweeter, and very importantly--a happy belated birthday to you!

Thank you also to every reader / customer who has made my life sweeter!
