Countdowns and Cupcakes Shop Sneak Peek

And the final countdown is on! On Thursday, my Etsy shop will open and probably crash the site with the massive amount of business I’ll receive. Ok, so maybe that second part won’t happen, but the Etsy store will be open and I’m so excited!

My hope is that military spouses and families will come to think of Countdowns and Cupcakes as the go-to spot for thoughtful, handmade care package decor as well as a few other military-related items. I plan to spotlight one of my new products each week (and add more as time goes on), but wanted to give my bloggy friends (that’s y’all!) a sneak peek before anyone else.

This care package is probably my favorite one in the shop. I’m always pro-anything orange, but am so excited that this turned out exactly like my vision! Customers will get everything you see here (minus the box) and the design can be customized for large or medium flat rate boxes.  Interior sides for all of my care packages are also available as a separate item.


There will be four additional care package designs (including a limited edition Valentine’s Day one) available when the shop opens on Thursday, with more coming in mid-January. But Countdowns and Cupcakes isn’t just for care packages!

This chalkboard countdown frame would make a perfect Christmas present for military families! It can be customized for any branch of service and there are also “mom”, “mommy”, “dad” and “daddy” options so even little ones can get in on the countdown. Each frame is hand-lettered, slightly distressed and so stinking cute, but I may just be partial to the photo that’s in the sample.


This has been such a labor of love and I hope that you enjoy my creations as much as I do! Please plan to come back on Thursday for the link to my store and possibly a coupon code.
