So, my best friend died in a car crash recently. She was going to be my roommate for my freshman year of college next year. Understandably, my mind has been pretty screwed up lately. One of my friends stayed with me the first week, while I helped plan the memorial service, but after she left I had some problems. At the moment I can't concentrate on anything useful, so I've been finding not at all useful things to do. It helps a little.

So here is my current antidepressant: cupcakes! I got a wonderful cupcake decorating book from a friend for my birthday, and my mom agreed to pay for the ingredients today if I made cupcakes for supper. She may have regretted that  Tongue The eyes are mini m+ms, the cheeks mentos, and the tongues and noses are swedish fish and starbursts. I got the design straight from the book, "Hello, Cupcake", but I'm still really happy about them. Oh, and when I finished I made some strange m+m flowers with the leftover frosting. And here are the pictures:

I'm sorry about the depressing backdrop, but that's pretty much been my reason for doing everything these days. Thanks for looking!

I LOVE personal swaps! If you see something I made that you like, and have anything fun or interesting or silly, tell me.

These cupcakes are wonderfully made!

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend, I can't imagine what you must be going through!  I hope that you can find some peace.

Life is too short to finish boring WIPs.

Cutest thing I've seen in a long time. I can see why these brightened your spirits! I hope you can find a lot of comfort through making things like this.

My sister died in a car accident 4 years ago. It still hurt today.

Your cupcakes are wonderful though and if it helps you cope then bake away!

They are absolutely amazing! Its really good that you're taking care of yourself and finding some ways to take care of yourself through the grief. Its normal to be sad, its understandable to be angry, and confused, and any number of other things... just do your best to hang in there, and keep crafting when you have the strength- it will help you get through this. *hug*
