My Life in Cupcakes

Pin It!

This semester, as a fun elective, I’m taking an acting class. Here were the directions for our first assignment:

“You may use any medium– song, dance, drawing, etc.– to present to the class a self-portrait. It is your opportunity to share who you are as a person. Be creative.” Pretty open-ended assignment, huh? I love projects where you get to be creative. At first, I thought about making a scrapbook.
I’ve blogged about my passion for scrapbooking, here: My life in scrapbook pages.
But then an even more creative idea came to mind:
 “All About Me” Cupcakes! So here it is– my life in cupcakes:
I was born in England.

I’ve also lived in Philadelphia…



and Texas:

From living all over the world, I developed an interest in learning about other cultures and languages. Fittingly, I’m majoring in Spanish.

I’m also very athletic. In high school, I played both varsity soccer and tennis.
I still play tennis, but just for fun.
And I’m a fervent sports-fan, too… especially when it comes to the Dallas Stars!
I’m an avid scrapbooker and love anything to do with arts-n-crafts.

And, after taking a class in high school, I became hooked on Adobe Photoshop.

Helping others is really important to me; right now I have two charity projects: Project Pillows and AfriCards (more on those in a future post). I also am a volunteer dog-walker two days a week at a local animal shelter.

Oh yeah, and I’m a vegan.

All together now:

    They show where you were born and were you’ve lived, but what they really show is that you’re super sweet! Just like cupcakes! 🙂

    They remind me of merit badges. Screw the ‘Official Vegan Sash’ I mentioned before… all rewards should be edible.
