About NY Cupcake

Just Some of My Interests, Hobbies, & Favorite Things:

  • Nintendo’s Animal Crossing
  • writing poetry (experimental poetry)- I’ve been writing since I was 16. The last time I counted I had over 120 poems. I wish I could write daily like Walt Whitman did, but that’s nearly impossible for me.
  • reading (fashion, fiction, poetry mostly)
  • mixed media arts, watercolor & acrylic painting, modern calligraphy, & crafts
  • cooking & baking
  • website & graphic design- This hobby started in 1999. I was inspired by MPVixen & Michael Dutton’s websites.
  • spin & sculpt
  • yoga & meditation
  • essential oils/aromatherapy
  • gardening (I love roses & terrariums)- It brings me a lot of joy to visit the rose garden at the New York Botanical Garden.
  • touring historic homes & sites- This is something my husband & I both enjoy very much.
  • miniatures & dollhouses- My husband’s Grandma Hope inspired me. This hobby began in 2003, with the partial construction of my Greenleaf Dollhouse-Pierce/Annabelle. I will continue to post my progress.
  • I would love to travel much more than I currently do!  I love beachy destinations most.
  • Season: Spring
  • Styles: Bohemian Chic
  • Fabrics & Textures: Brushed cotton, gabardine, twill, burnt velvet
  • Books: The Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella, Bergdorf Blondes & Debutante Divorcee by Plum Sykes, The Power Broker by Robert A. Caro, Bringing Home The Birkin by Michael Tonello. I probably like the less academic type books sometimes since I need something to balance out my very Type A personality.
