My name is Libby, and I am a creator.
I sew, I knit, I make tiny things out of clay, I rearrange furniture in my house, I sometimes decorate my dayplanner, I made two tiny humans out of my own body, and I bake and cook like nobody’s business.
I struggled for a long time trying to shove myself into a tiny niche so I could say “I am a XXX blogger!“, but let’s be honest. I’m not going to fit in a tiny niche in so many ways.
I am big. I am colorful. I am kinda loud. And I have a lot of interests. So my niche is “creative blogger”.
I make a lot of food. A lot. My primary creative outlet is my kitchen. You’ll see a lot of recipes and culinary techniques here, because that’s my love language.
You’ll also see some sewing and some special FX makeup and a little costuming. You’ll see polymer clay pieces and dayplanner creations. I love making things, and there’s always a new medium to try!
Why do you call yourself Mia Cupcake? It has to do with roller derby and a breakup. Check out this post to find out why!
What’s life like at home? My two kids are amazing and outstanding. My little hardly ever makes it to the internet (on purpose), but they are brilliant and awesome. My eldest is called “Wolfgang”, and he gets veto power on when I share him on the internet. He’s finishing up high school to graduate in 2018 and he is so busy with AP classes and band and theatre and a job and eleventy million other things, I can SOMETIMES catch him long enough to get a photo.
Aside from food and crafts, I love Jesus, Disney, thrift shopping, Star Wars, anything having to do with Thor, the television show Supernatural, and traveling with my turquoise leopard print suitcase.
I believe that color, chaos and cookies can right a lot of wrongs.
I believe that a waiter who does not look lost when I order a blue steak is the sign of an excellent restaurant, and 2 fingers of good whisky (neat, of course) is the perfect accompaniment to a blue steak.
I believe that pen and paper is one of the best ways to express yourself, and I do love a good rollerball pen with a fresh notebook.
I laugh really loud and I’m not ashamed of that. I love my tribe of people and bend over backwards to help whenever I can.
I try really hard to post on Tuesdays and Thursdays around noon PST here on the blog (though honestly, sometimes life gets in the way), and I upload a new vlog to my YouTube channel every night for all of 2017.
My Instagram is full of photos of my daily life. Sometimes that’s wild and crazy and sometimes it’s just me dragging my laptop out onto our back deck to get a little vitamin D and taking photos of my gorgeous gardens or whatever I’m making in my kitchen.
My Pinterest is kind of a peek inside my brain. You’ll see gory horror special effects makeup, and frilly birthday cakes. Gorgeous ball gowns and all things Disney. Motivational quotes and a whole board on being a Boss Chick.
My YouTube channel is focused right now on a year-long vlog project. I’m vlogging every day in 2017 on a quest to be more awesome. I also post unboxing videos, the occasional video of Wolfgang doing something amazing and brilliant and a few makeup application videos.
