Aspiring Designers?

Is there any aspiring Crochet Designers out there? I found a great quote for you:

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up. " Thomas A. Edison

Wow! You never know how close you are to success! Don't give up!

PS: "I made it!" (I'll explain later, like in Spring '08)

Oh yeah, I promised you the cupcake story:

These are the first 7 cake mixes that I baked into cupcakes on Friday, until I got the revised RSVP count for my husband's company's annual picnic. Then I ran out and bought 4 more, and baked those into cupcakes. I lost track.... somewhere around 250 cupcakes! Luckily, one of the BRILLIANT women on the picnic committee said, "why not make it into a 'cupcake bar' and let everyone decorate their own!" Now, that my friends, is one smart cupcake! So that's what we did! The kids loved it, it saved me a ton of time, and the leftovers are easy to freeze!
