The first challenge in Amy Bayliss‘ Homemaker’s Challenge is cupcakes but not just any normal cupcake. You had to make cupcakes that told a story about you. Your cupcakes had to reveal parts of yourself. The challenge was issued last Friday and everyone was given until this Friday (October 8 ) to complete their cupcakes and post their challenge entry.
The first thing it should reveal about myself is I am a non-conformist. I love thinking outside of the box, and in this case I’m way outside of the (cake mix) box. I love to do the unexpected.
The black of my cupcake represents my great love for black coffee and extra dark chocolate.
The middle color is not purple and it isn’t pink, it’s pinky-purple. That color signifies my two girls. My oldest is 10 and loves every thing girly and pink. My youngest is almost 8, and loves everything purple and Barbie.
The white represents clean. I love to keep my house at the very minimum “company clean”. I like to think anyone could come over at any time and I wouldn’t be ashamed of my messy house.
The blue, green, and purple tie for the bag represents Mr. Full Cup. He works very hard to provide for us and I am very thankful!
I have a tube of Mary Kay lipstick because I am a Mary Kay Consultant. (and yes, I ship for free!) I also have a banana because I love love to make people laugh. I often feel also like I’m going bananas.
I have a book because I dearly love to read, but also because I read books for review. That is always a pleasure! I have found some great treasures in reviewing books.
I have a crochet hook because I (obviously) crochet. I find I am able to focus my mind much better on anything if my hands are busy. I have been known to crochet in church.
I also have a pen because I love to write. Sometimes I even make sense.
The last thing inside the cupcake is a piece of paper with math problems on it. That represents the teacher in me. I teach both of our girls at home.
I couldn’t find anything to represent myself as a beloved Child of God, unless it is the white because He sees me as Holy and blameless.
You might have noticed I did not make a cupcake you bake in the oven. I am not a baker, but I am learning to enjoy cooking. I love creating healthy meals for my family. Just the other day I told Mr. FullCup that I finally know what I want to study in college, genetics and nutrition.
Because I have so much extra time on my hands.
