So some of my friends asked about getting this recipe so here ya go.
What you will need: 1 stick butter
                                  1&1/4th cup white sugar
                                  1/3rd cup brown sugar
                                  1tsp vanilla
                                  1tbs cinnamon
                                  2 12ct muffin pans
                                  3&1/2  cups flour
                                  water
                                  1dz large apples or 18 smaller ones
                                   1 egg   
Preheat stove to 350 degrees.
Filling:
Peel apples and chop
Mix in 1/2 cup of flour
1tbs cinnamon
1tsp vanilla
1&1/4th cup sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4th cup of butter chopped into tiny squares
Put in fridge while you make crust

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
                                                           
The crust is simple. 
3/4th cup of softened a little melted butter
2&3/4th cup flour
2/3rd cup of cold water mix till thick.
Does not need to stand

Roll out a little thinner than standard pie crust using flour as needed on rolling space and pin.
Use a good sized mug to cut out circles loosely tuck one into each muffin shape.
Then fill each one heaping full with filling.
Then use the rest of the dough to cut more shapes.  If you are short just cut strips if you have plenty cut more circles and you can seal the mini pies.
Once the tops are on brush pies with egg white 1 egg does them all.
Sprinkle with white sugar and cinnamon.
Bake on a baking sheet for 40 minutes at 350 degrees.  Once cool use a butter knife if need be but pop them out and they should be solid.
Enjoy :)

Making your own little world

This post is a happy post.  Life is good right now tons of work happy family and I feel a recent renewal in my creative activities.  The photo above is from my alter ego shop I call her Edna Minet.  I used that photo because it was like creating my own little world. 
In this life for me at least it is easy to forget just how simple it is to build your own little worlds.  Sure you need to go out and meet folks who don't live in those worlds but in my view they are great fun and should be embraced as a way to live out whatever runs around in our brains.  So with that in mind I am making our office/art supply storage/dining room into my perfect little world today.
Wish me luck.
Love

It has been a real hard week but great for being an artist

 So this week these people found my shop.  http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/buy-your-happy-abortion-cards-on-etsy/  I have an item called Vagina Dentata  and it seems they took umbrage with my support of every woman having the right to choose for herself.  It can be found in the article above with the puppy because clearly they did not understand my first image was not mature in any way. 
Well when they found that item the response was to suggest I am stupid because I have run on sentences.  Forget the fact that the writer herself has maybe the dullest lackluster style I have seen in many unfavorable reviews.  Of course this was not a real review this was more of a school girl gathering in which they call people at midnight and ask them if their refrigerator is running.   Here are a few of my favorite commentaries. 

Now Beverly wants us all to know her items are aesthetically pleasing.  So a quick search for Beverly revealed this. 
  So clearly she thinks it is OK to make aborted mermaid drag queens who have wiped their butts with their hand.  If you would like to see more late term aborted mermares or as another friend called it Scariel's here ya go.  https://www.etsy.com/listing/153959826/miniature-mermaid-with-light-purple-tail?ref=sr_gallery_26&ga_search_query=mermaid+purple+clay&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_search_type=all&ga_facet=mermaid+purple+clay
 
Mean while over on the no matter what push out that babby board these folks also had some important things to say. 
Patty wants us all to know that hey if you make a art work about your political and ethical beliefs keep your fucking hands off the cute stuff no purple seal for you bitches.
Oh I would show you more from this part but it is all half assed bible verses because you know we all live by the same code.  Here is a link if you would like to check that out.  http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/buy-your-happy-abortion-cards-on-etsy/
Then the final one my favorite is the argument known world wide as the I have no argument reference.  That is right folks you guessed it.  We are Nazi's. 
Now I also want to point out some really great friends and customers who saw this because I thought their outrage was hilarious and posted it on my own pages stood up for me and the other artist and most important the idea of the right to choose.  To those folks I am very grateful. 
Now just to be clear on a couple of things.  I am not pro abortion or pro death I am pro every woman making up her own mind what grows in her body and when and if she wants to terminate that it staying her option to select. 
There were all kinds of allegations on that page that we all must be trying to relieve guilt for abortions we had and various other assumptions.  I almost want to explain myself but nope I sure won't because it is not one bit their business. 
They can frankly go and get bent.  Any time your argument has to come down to name calling and pretty much slander you don't have a real argument.  Thanks to them I now have additional sales and notice and will be donating a small part of my profits in the last few days to a Pro choice or planned parenthood I have not decided which one yet. 
So just like Beverly I feel very inspired to make all kinds of art and who knows maybe some of mine will actually be aesthetically pleasing promoting a women's right to choose.
Love
Cappy
