Cupcake, Carols & Copic Giveaway!


So, here’s that Cupcakes & Copics project I’ve been working on and a double chance at sweet blog candy!

Finally, I remembered to select my patterned paper first thing, Good Cheer from October Afternoon. It was easy to match my Copic colors up to the pretty patterns for coordinated cupcakes.Β  I had colored them over the weekend and glittered them up. I cut out all these little cupcakes while I was sitting under the hairdryer at the beauty shop yesterday. Yes, here in small-town America, it’s still the beauty shop, just like in Steel Magnolias. πŸ™‚ No salon trips for me!


I’m going toΒ  let the girls have a few friends over for caroling, cocoa and cupcakes in a few weeks. I made these little song books for each of them. My girls love to sing, so I know it will be a fun, fun time. I’ll keep it *really* simple – we have a retirement complex just for ladies on our street, so we’ll go there and a few neighbors.


My girls are still pretty little, so I only included 4 songs. That’s enough for them, and less chance of the pages blowing out and away like that. πŸ˜‰ The pages are tied into the book with Baker’s Twine from Martha Stewart. Then, I’ll bring the girls back here for a quick cupcake and oh, so sad, it’s time to go! Gotta keep it short and sweet or I’ll have barbie heads and polly pocket shoes all over the house in a matter of 3.8 minutes. You think I’m kidding?

I do think this will be fun! I’ll try to remember to post pictures when we do the thing…I bet you think some Copic and Cupcake blog candy would be a lot more fun than watching my 2 angels sing and sling cupcake crumbs. πŸ™‚

Well, Happy Thanksgiving this is for you:


How about an adorable stamp set, ‘Season’s Sweetings’ from my fabulously fun and giving friend, Taylor at Taylored Expressions?!Β  Wait! there’s MORE:


Copic candy to go with it! Prize package from Marianne at Copic Markers. (Note: I did edit my picture from the original post. What is pictured is what you will receive in this blog candy!) Now isn’t that sweet?

How do you enter? Leave me a comment with title of your favorite Christmas carol! It’s that simple…I’ll choose a winner on Friday evening, post on Saturday morning and ship this prize pack out on Monday.

But wait, there’s MORE! Double your chances to win by dropping by to see what Sharon Harnist has created with her Season’s Sweetings and/or Home Sweet Home stamps from Taylor. I got to see the sweet beginnings of her project when I was at her home earlier in the month…you are going to drool over it. I know!! She’s also got a blog candy package just like mine! So, with that, I’ll wish you good luck and get back to my pre-Thanksgiving chores. πŸ™‚

  1. What sweet Thanksgiving blog candy! Happy Thanksgiving to you Lori!

  2. Ooops, I forgot to say my favorite Christmas song is still “Silent Night”.

  3. What a great giveaway! Thanks Lori!
    I have many Christmas carols, but one of my all time favorites is “Away in a Manger.”

  4. lisa-onestampinmama

    Hi Lori! Happy Thanksgiving! My favorite song right now is “come let us adore him” because my 4yr old is singing it everyday in prep for the pre-school Christmas program! It is so cute!

  5. Absolutely adorable, Lori — love every bit of this sweet project! Great idea to put that sweet caroling cuppy on the Label die-cut and the songbook idea is fabulous! Happy Thanksgiving, sweet friend!

  6. Lori~Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! My favorite all-time Christmas song is Jingle Bells sung by Bing Crosby. It just brings back so many wonderful holiday memories spent with my family. We always listened to his Christmas album every year as a family and now it’s something I do with my family every year!! AHHHHH, tradition, gotta love it, eh??
    Again, Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

  7. Thanksgiving Blessings to you and yours! I love all of the old Christmas Carols, but my all time favorite has to be “Mary Did You Know”, that song always reminds me of the true meaning of Christmas.

  8. Hi Lori! I just love all the little details you put on your projects! Always so awesome. My favorite Christmas Carol is Hark the Herald Angels sing. I still remember watching Charlie Brown as a kid with that as the last song they would sing on the cartoon. I never realized it would be so touching as an adult as I watched it with my kids and actually would get tears in my eyes from all the memories of Christmas’ past when I was a kid. Thanks for many great ideas!!!

  9. My favorite Christmas carol isn’t really a carol, but it is a Christmas song! Carol of the Bells, I have always loved that one.

  10. Cute ideas Lori! I love them. My favorite is Carol of the Bells. Its not quite as pretty when one sings it themselves trying to do the words and the “ding dong” at the same time, but it’s amusing trying! πŸ˜€

  11. How sweet and what a wonderful tradition for your girls. I’m sure they will remember it always.

    My favorite carol is White Christmas. We don’t have them here (and after a stint in MN, we’re thankful) but at holiday time…we miss it and our families.

  12. Gorgeous carol booklet Lori! My fav is Silent Night. I love when we sing it on Christmas Eve when they turn out the lights and its just candles and voices! Beautiful. Happy Thanksgiving!

  13. How cute!!! I love singing O Holy Night!! πŸ˜€

  14. Your card is very, very cute!! My favorite Christmas song is a tie between Wizards in Winter and Christmas Eve/Sarajevo 12/24 by Trans Siberian Orchestra. Thanks for the chance to win.

  15. Hi Lori! Your Christmas carole book is such a sweet idea…I know your girls will love it…as will the ladies at the retirement home!
    And thank you for offering a sweet give-away, too!
    My favorite Christmas carol has always been “Joy to the World” because it is so festive.

  16. I don’t know if I have a favorite… However, I play piano and ‘Joy to the World’ is a fun one. Nice and perky!

  17. Your caroling book is so cute!! My fave Christmas song is White Christmas – must be sung by Bing Crosby though! Thanks for the chance to win.

  18. Your little book is just adorable! I really like the red-and-white string fastened along the spine; looks so cute!

    My favorite Christmas carol would have to be “Silent Night”…but really, I like them all, and listen to the year round…

    Thanks for a chance to win some candy!

  19. What great blog candy! My favorite is Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (and you have to add all the extras in to it!).

  20. It Came Upon a Midnight Clear!

My favorite Christmas Carol would have to be O Come All Ye Faithful – it just gives me goosebumps and brings tears to my eyes every time I heart it. Happy Thanksgiving and thanks for the chance to win!

  23. What fun! I am sure the girls will have a blast. Reminds me of taking my dd and our girl scout troop to the nursing home last year! They had a great time and the residents LOVED having the girls there to sing!
    Oh gosh I have to pick one favorite? I love them all but I guess Silent Night comes to mind first…Frosty is one of my favorite fun songs πŸ˜‰

  24. I just got some of this paper, isn’t it YUMMY??? Hmmm…let’s see…my favorite carol is O, Little Town of Bethlehem. Today, that is…

  25. My absolute favorite is Carol of the Bells but I love all Christmas carols. Happy Holidays!

  26. so is stepping on Polly Pocket shoes kinda like stepping on legos?! πŸ˜‰

    fave Christmas carol – probably ‘White Christmas’ or ‘Silent Night’. I like so many of them though. and like the other poster, I really enjoy the modern, ‘Mary Did You Know’. also the Newsboys, ‘Adoration’. okay, now I’ve given you 4. that’s me – over the top! πŸ™‚

  27. Hi Lori,

    What a great project. I love the little cupcake, too cute! Fantastic blog candy too. I only have one Copic marker and would love to cross some of them off my wish list. My favorite Christmas Carol is a tough one. I like so many of them. Carol of the Bells and The Christmas Song.

  36. Has been, still is, and always will be…Silent Night. Mannheim Steamroller’s version is beautiful. Have a blessed Thanksgiving!

  39. I LOVE The First Noel. It reminds me of what the season is really all about.

  40. Cupcakes! I love them (am supposed to be on a diet but I won’t miss a chance to eat just one) and these stamps make it hard to resist them even more. My favorite Christmas carol is ‘I’ll be home for Christmas’. Every Thanksgiving and Christmas, I host a dinner for friends who have no family here in the islands and we spend the day celebrating our friendship. It brings me joy and happiness to be able to share my home with friends.

  41. My favorite Christmas carol is O’ Holy Night. It always brings back all my childhood memories of midnight candlelight church service in my hometown in New Jersey. Some of the best memories are wound around Christmas carols. Thank you for the chance to win some great blog candy. Happy Holidays

  42. I like the song, The Homecoming, by John Tesh. It’s instrumental, so not a carol you would sing but it’s fantastic. What nice blog candy you have to offer! Happy Thanksgiving!

  43. This is a tough question. I *love* Christmas!! I have so many favourite Christmas songs and Christmas carols.

    I *think* my favourite one would be….Carol of the Bells.

    Happy holidays.

  52. Debbie Stelton

    Thanks for the chance to win some candy. I would have to say my favorite song would be The Little Drummer Boy. I always loved watching the children singing this song and their little cheeks puffing out as they say pa-rumpa-pum-pum.
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and TFS.

    Debbie/Phx AZ

  53. Lori, what a sweet idea of having a caroling party for your girls! My favorite carol is God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen. Happy Thanksgiving!

  54. Mmmm-favorite carol – Silent Night. And don’t you just love to see video of the houses all lit up to music????

  56. Great blog candy!!!!

    My favorite carol is Silent Night…. Every time I hear it I get tears in my eyes.


  57. Hi Lori. I love your project. I have a beagle named Cupcake and it reminds me of her. I also like the copic colors you used. My favorite Christmas song is O HOLY NIGHT (Mariah Carey does a great version). Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  58. What a great job on the caroling book. TFS. My favorite carol is O Holy Night, but I am also fond of Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer.

  59. Oh, that’s a hard question, but I think my favorite is Wassail Wassail All Over the Town. And I want those markers! I’ve always wanted to try some Copic markers.

  60. Wow, majorly yummy candy!! I like “White Christmas”… probably because I grew up in Fort Lauderdale and didn’t really connect with the whole snow thing. Now I live in Idaho and RELISH the snow. It’s fun to watch the locals laugh and shake their heads in disbelief at me. Ten years and I still love snowy days!

  61. What a nice project, Lori, and it sounds like a great thing for the girls to be involved with. I remember making song books for my son’s scout group many years ago. [No, they didn’t look this nice] My favorite Christmas songs are Silent Night and Mary, did you know?. I guess I’ll be pulling out the holiday CD’s in a few days while the Christmas decor goes up. Happy Thanksgiving to all.

  62. Happy Thanksgiving To You and Yours… and double thanks for the chance to win great blog candy! My favorite holiday song is Dean Martin’s version of “It’s a Marshmallow World”…. hmmm, come to think of it, if I won the blog candy I could then make some cards using cupcakes and -marshmallow- icing {heheheheh}

  63. What a great way to make a song book.

  64. I love that card and those stamps are too cute! I guess you can call my favorite a Christmas carol, they play it every year on the radio here. It’s “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas”. It’s an old song sung by a little girl and it just tickles me every time I hear it!

  65. My favorite Christmas Carol is Silent Night. I love Christmas Music. Lori great job. Have a Happy Holiday
    Season. I would love to win this Blog Candy

  66. What a gorgeous project! I love that October Afternoon paper w/ the images – it’s perfect! My favorite Carol is Deck the Halls!

  67. Wish I could go caroling with you in small town America! My all time favorite Christmas carol is O Holy Night nothing can beat that,in my opinion, but my newer one is Mary Did You Know. Enjoy your blog but never post!

  68. Have a special Thanksgiving time.
    What a great job on the songbooks.
    My favorite Christmas song is Away in the Manger. I teach the prechool class at church and we sing it before the Christmas play begins each year. The little ones look so cute in their angel costumes as they sing their hearts out to loved ones in the congregation.

  69. My favorite Christmas carol is What Child is this.

  70. Oh, my goodness…thank you for the chance to win! My favorite Christmas song is Mary, Did You Know? It isn’t a carol but it leaves me with awe each time I listen to it! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Lori!

  71. The card you made is so nice. i like the way you made the little cupcakes sparkle. My favorite Christmas carol is “It’s the most wonderful time of the year”. Not sure if that is the title or not,but it has that verse in it. Have a great Thanksgiving day!!

  78. I just love your creation. It is absolutely adorable and brought a smile to my face. Your girls will love it too.
    My favorite Christmas song is Away in the Manger b/c my little girl sings it year round. She doesn’t know all of the words yet but she does sing “the Little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head” at the top of her lungs and with such joy that it makes me smile. Why do they haave to grow up so quickly?

  79. That is TOO cute!! Great idea for your little girls! You are so thoughtful, too to spread the joy to others in the community.

  86. The songbooks are adorable. What fun the girls will have going caroling. I laughed so hard when you said you colored the images while under the hair dryer. I never would have thought of doing that. Gives new meaning to multitasking. Thanks so much for sharing your art, making me laugh and offering some awesome blog cany. Happy Thanksgiving.

  87. Pick me Pick me!! Friday is my Birthday and what an awesome gift this would be!!!! My favorite Christmas carol is “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree” if makes me think of Home Alone (the movie)!!

  100. I think it’s a tie between traditional “White Christmas” and fun “Santa Claus is coming to town”. It depends on my mood. I love singing Christmas carols and I play Christmas music all month long. I used to work with the deaf, and both these songs are good ones to sign, too, so sometimes I’ll catch myself signing them as I sing! Happy Turkey Day, everyone!

    My favorite carol is Winter Wonderland, Silver Bells, Silent Night and Mary did you know.

  108. Lori your song books are just darling! I can picture little girls singing like angels, even with cupcake crumbs all around. It’s those moments like that I have marked in my brain and never want to forget of my children growing up! I Enjoy so enjoy your writing.
    My favorite song for Christmas is “Away in a Manger”. I always sang it to my GrandDaughter when she was going down for a nap. Even in the Summer! LOL… It always soothed her. Just love it!

    Cute project. I have two favorite songs; mostly because my mom used to sing them so well. What Child Is This and Adeste Fideles(?) otherwise known as the latin version of Come All Ye Faithful. I so miss my mom singing both of these at Christmas.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  157. Beautifull x-mas card. love the colours and cute image.
    My favorite x-mas carol is: Do they know it’s x-mas time from Band-aid.
    Keeps reminding me of people that won’t have x-mas with a lot of food and presents with x-mas every year.
    Makes me feel very blessed to have everything, although we keep complaining that things are expensive.

    Have a great day,
    xoxo Karin

It’s so fun to sing along with and dance to with my kiddos. BTW, I think it would be very fun and entertaining to watch your little girls sing and throw cupcake crumbs! LOL!

  164. Your project is so adorable. I loved to carold when I was in jr high and high school. My favorite Christmas Carol is an oldie but I so love to hear to What Child Is This. One of my favorite modern day songs would be Irving Berlin’s White Christmas sang by Bing Crosby of course.

  173. Jingle Bells is such an ageless carol. Love the idea of your song book, but the best part are those tiny glittered cupcakes. Thanks for the chance to win.

    My favorite is Silver Bells. I have never known quite why but it brings blurry eyes out! I know we sang it in 5th grade Christmas pagent and I was all choked up then.

Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to win these goodies! Happy Thanksgiving.

  201. I enjoy a good classic Christmas song, specifically The Christmas Song by Nat King Cole.

  202. The Natalie Cole version of Jingle Bells on the latest version of Miracle on 34th Street with Mara Wilson. She sings it with more energy and pizzaz than the traditional way. Thanks for the giveaway!

  212. What an adorable idea for a caroling book!!! And what a hard question! I thing my favorite carol would be “THE HOLLY AND THE IVY” it is so unique, symbolic and ties Christmas and Easter together beautifully.

  213. That paper and the stamps are just ADORABLE! One of my all-time favorites is “Of the Father’s Love Begotten” – I know, it’s not a common one at all! Other favorites are “Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella, He Is Born, the Divine Christ Child” and “Still Still Still”. We had a very special Thanksgiving. Our sweet little granddaughter, who is only 9 months old, came down the stairs wearing a sweatshirt saying “I’m going to be a big sister!” We were shocked! Our own kids are spaced just under 2 years apart, and these two will be only 17 months apart! My daughter and her DH will have two babies on their hands! I can’t wait! I still can’t believe it….

    God bless!

No one in our family played, but one day I had an old music book and kept experimenting until I could play “Hark the Herald Angels Sing” on the crazy thing.
