thomas the train cupcake toppers...
Knowing me, there's a good chance I will.
Let's carry on.
Once upon a time, like 7-8 years ago, I had this friend. This good friend. Her name- Christina. Yeah. Totally. She had a boyfriend who was friends with my (at the time) boyfriend so the 4 of us hung out like ALL.THE.TIME. I'm talkin- like literally every weekend...at least once. Sickening. Things could sometimes get a little confusing. Someone would call, "Hey Christina!" and we'd both look, etc...but that didn't stop us from being friends. No, not at all. We even fought about which Christina was better and argued over hot topics like, "Who was Christina #1 and who was Christina #2". Serious stuff, folks.
In fact! There came a point in our friendship where we decided it would be an amazing idea to move in with each other (you know, to really test out the confusion that could be). So we planned it...and planned it. We even had our answering machine message all planned out.
Whoa now! What's that?! Remember, this was almost a decade ago.
We decided it would go a little something like this, "Hey you've reached Christina....(insert creepy almost whisper voice) and Christina! Home of the Christinas! Leave a message!" Now insert hysterical laughter because at 21 + 22 years of age we thought that was the funniest thing EVER.
It wasn't. I now know this. I'm so glad that idea never came to fruition.
Neither did our big plan to move out together. Which I actually am sad about. Those could have been fun days. I mean imagine it- a home of Christinas only. Home of the Christinasssssssssss! Christinas unite!
Anywho. God had different plans :)
Moving on! So this friend Christina, now has a little boy (my how time flies) who was turning 3.
Gulp- again...time flies!
Wanting to make his birthday really special, she asked if I could create some cupcake toppers depicting his favorite fella- Thomas the Train.
I wanted to keep the design simple because this was a 3 year olds birthday. I knew he'd be sharing with other 3ish year olds so I wanted to make sure there wasn't some crazy design all over the place blowing their little minds. Thomas' big bright round face seemed perfect, to me. Seemed like something they'd easily recognize, smile at, and of course devour.
My favorite? Their little googly-like eyeballs. Gaw I love them!
Ah kids. I love them!
I loved these little faces so much that I decided to offer them up for you all to purchase, should you want. You can find them here :)
Christina #1- OUT.
