Make Cupcakes, Not War

I'm too excited! Next weekend, Jason and I are flying to Galveston, TX to visit with Jason's side of the family for 4 days.  I've never met *most* of his family, since they were unable to make it to the wedding.

While we are in Texas, Jason and I are going to head to Houston to a bakery where Johnny Cupcakes (one of Jason's favorite graphic artists) will be appearing! Jason is so excited.  We own a lot of vintage "Cupcake" shirts, which apparently this guy loves to see at these
 appearances! Here are a couple of my favorites that Jason and I have:

We actually don't have that white shirt with the multiple rows of cupcakes, but I love my hippo shirt with cupcakes over their heads!  I'm not a huge fan of the cupcake and crossbones, but that is one of his signature designs.  He is definitely a very unique artist, something my husband always admires in people! He has a pretty great story of how he began making his designs known, and how he avoided all of the "chain" retail stores.  You can check it out at his website I listed above.

We can't wait to go to Houston to meet Johnny Cupcakes.  I'm sure I'll have plenty of pictures of one REALLY excited husband when we return from that visit!
