Fabulous Friend Saturday!

Drum Roll Please.....



1. Hello Hilary! Why don't you introduce yourself and tell us about YOU!
Hello readers, I am a newly-wed for a little over a year to the man of my dreams. My husband, Mike, is a middle school youth minister, so my life involves doing a lot of youth ministry which I absolutely love! I grew up in Charleston, SC, and I have never lived anywhere else, which I wouldn’t ever change! I love living near the beach and everything about the summertime, especially slushies on a hot day! (I don’t do well in cold weather) I love to bake things, especially cupcakes. All throughout my school years, my friends would always call me the “Martha Stewart” of the group. I was always coming up with something to create! I started my business last year in September, and I was really surprised how much response I had with it. I’m in the process of opening an Etsy store, but until then you can order any of my creations off of my blog!
2. Do your blog & shop have a special name? Where did that name come from?
The name of my blog & shop is Paint, Bake, & Create! I thought of this name when I was in my design class in college. We had a project to do to create our own logo for a business. My business was Paint & Bake creative studios, and the logo was a cupcake holding a paintbrush. I chose those two things because painting and baking are two of my favorite things to do, and when they are combined, that just makes me extremely happy! When I started making hair bows I just added a hair bow on top of the cupcake and changed the name to Paint, Bake & Create. I fell in love with it, & created my own business!
3. What was the last treasure that arrived in your mail?
The last thing that arrived in my mail that I would consider a treasure is my new Nikon D3000 SLR camera. It was my Christmas/graduation present, and I surely do treasure it! :)
 4. Where in the world would you like to visit? why?
I would like to visit New York City! I know it’s in the United States, but I have never been there, and I have always really wanted to go there! It is just one of those places that seems like it can be so romantic & fun!

5.  What 8 records or books would you would take with you to a desert island (you can tell us why if you want to)?
This one is hard for me because I don’t read that much, and I’m not “set on” certain music, but what I do love and would love to take on a desert island would be movies. Here are my top 8:
            - The Notebook
            - Sweet Home Alabama
            - How to lose a guy in 10 days
            - Titanic
            - Just Married
            - Confessions of a Shopaholic
            - 27 Dresses
            - Bride Wars
Can you tell I love every chick flick possible, & I could watch them over and over again too?!?!
6. If you could go back and live in a past decade or century, when would you choose and why?
I would choose the 80s! I was born in the 80s, so I wasn’t really able to enjoy all of the wacky clothes & big hairstyles like I would want to! Every opportunity there is to dress up 80s style, I totally go all out: poufy sleeves & big teased hair!
 7. What is your favorite thing about creating something by hand?
There is just something special about having something personally handmade. I love the detail that goes into handmade things, every single little detail!!!

 8. Please list three of your favorite things. Why are they favorites?
            - Anything that has to do with CUPCAKES because they are so pretty!
            - Sunbathing on the BEACH, (it doesn’t get much better than that!)
            - Good SWEET TEA because it is yummy!
             {Hilary is totally a girl after my own heart!!!}

9. What could you eat/drink every single day and never grow tired of?
This kind of flows from my last answer: Sweet Tea & funfetti cupcakes w/ rainbow-chip icing! Who doesn’t love funfetti cupcakes?!?! And sweet tea, I’m from the south and I LOVE sweet tea!!
{Oh yes! The table wine of the South is my fave drink too!}

 10. What is your favorite place? Will you describe it to us?
The Beach on a warm summer day with a nice breeze. That would be considered paradise for me!
