“a little bit of inspiration and encouragement to get you through the day”
A Bit About Me
Hi there! I’m Denise and I’m chief cook, bottle-washer and general dogsbody at Cupcakes and Cadenzas. I’m also a music teacher, crafter, yarn addict and eternal optimist and I love inspiring, motivating and encouraging people to live the best lives they can with the resources they have available to them. Oh, and I also run an Etsy shop called Cupcake Cottage Crafts. It’s my outlet for all the stuff I love to make on a daily basis.
I live in the North East of Scotland with my partner, Mr C&C, (who refuses to have his photo put on here), our two gorgeous German Shepherd Dogs, my little cockatiel and my exceptionally handsome black and white cob (see below). I would love to tell you what my hobbies are but I am what’s known as a ‘Renaissance Soul’ meaning I am interested in so many things that it would take all day to list them here but no doubt you’ll find out more about that as you get into the blog.
A Bit About Cupcakes and Cadenzas
Cupcakes and Cadenzas is my little corner of the Internet where I mainly share my love of crafting however, I also post about other things too, mainly things that inspire me and make me happy. You’ll find hints, tips and posts on all sorts of stuff here including crafting, positive living, planning and organising, cooking and baking and a whole pile of other stuff aimed at helping you to live a happy, healthy, abundant, prosperous and simple life in our increasingly busy world. Some posts will make you smile. Others will inspire you to try something new or different. Hopefully, some of them will help you out with things you may be stuck on and occasionally there might be something that will make you cry, but I really hope that everything you find here will, in some way, fill your heart with joy and if I can help even just one person to step out of their comfort zone and try something new or different, my day will be made.
Oh, and one other thing – the name – Cupcakes and Cadenzas. I love cupcakes; I love cadenzas; they motivate me; they make me happy; they represent my creativity; I’m a cake-loving, mezzo soprano…what more can I say?
