It's not you... it's me.

Kids...(no, no fancy handwriting right now) just wanted to let you know that things here at "The Bedlam" are going to get shaken up a bit. I am working on starting a new business venture for myself and I really need more time to get things to the next level. I'd sacrifice sleep but that seems a bad option...so, sadly, blogging is next on the list. Now hold on a second...I am NOT going away! I'm just resting my hat for a bit. Posting will become a bit sparse or sporadic but I'll still be here. It will also likely begin to involve more images of cupcakes than one might typically care for...? I will likely talk about my progress or hurdles. I may ask for your savvy opinions and advice. But I WILL be around. And, yes...I hope you will be too.


  1. yay you! can't wait to hear the details. :)


  2. I can't wait to see what you're up too...
    I know it'll be fantastic!

  3. Ooh, ooh, oooooh! Does that mean that Beefcakes is really going to happen? I sure hope so. You will be missed but I can't wait to see what you come up with. Bonne chance!

    PS. It is scientifically impossible to post up too many pictures of cupcakes.

  4. agree with Paola. And, since I live in the area and cuppies are my fave thing ever, I volunteer to be on the taste testing committee :)

  5. I'll be here waiting with bated breath. best of luck and don't sacrifice you're sleep Beefy -- super important to keep that brain of yours inspired!

  6. i completely support you! sounds enticing. can't wait to hear about your new endeavor. and, i agree with paola. it's scientifically impossible to put up too many pictures of cupcakes. xoxo

  7. Beefy's going to take over the world! Distracting us all with cupcake flirtation! It's a grand scheme dear Uncle and may you succeed without losing a wink o' sleep :)


  8. You had me at cupcake. Honestly, I'm very excited for you! I can't wait to hear and see more, but I know you are going to be great. How do I know....well, I just do....that and because you are smart enough to know where your priorities need to be. Will be watching my reader to see the moutwatering beefcakes.

  9. Good for you!! Looking forward to seeing more of our wonderful creations. You're going to do great!

  12. Mon Oncle, take the reins and go!!
    All your fans [like me] will be here.

    As I told another pal in the blogosphere who took a hiatus...this is a 21st century art form. Wait for your muse. Keep to your priorities. Your fans will wait.

    Kick it.


  13. Go on with your bad (or should I say fabulous!) self and good luck. We'll all be better off thanks to your delicious work!

  17. Rock on Uncle B! I know you'll do great! Can't wait to hear more about it. And yeah..if you need any kind of "Taste Testers" Ben and I would be happy to help out! much love, J.

  18. I will only accept your absence if you send me cupcakes.

  19. B, I completely understand! I can't wait to see what you are up too, and I wish you well:)

  20. BEEF! That's so exciting! I can't believe you're FINALLY giving your edible thong "fundies" business the full backing it deserves. This is awesome. And you have my full support, Beef:) xoxoxo Can't wait to see what unfolds...er...becomes of this new venture!

  21. Hi, Kids! Hey...I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend!

    Just wanted to give a quick "THANKS FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART" shout out to y'all for all your sweet, kind, and supportive words left here!
    I promise to keep you all in the loop as much as possible!

    Kelly...you'll hear about the details...in time. :)

    Mr. Peacock...I hope to strut some stylish plumage in the months to come.

    Paola...Beefcakes? Weeeeelllll...I don't know about "Beefcakes" per se but certainly something to appease your cupcake fantasies. I hope. ("Beefcakes" just sounds like some tacky gay strip club...don'tcha think?)

    Carrie...when the committee is formally formed you will be notified! :)

    courtney...thanks for the support! And plenty of sleep will be had. Well, as much as possible anyway. Now I wake up in the middle of the night plotting and planning! Oy!

    tula...thanks for the cupcake love, m'dear! :)

    jane...well, if I don't take over the world...elastic waistbands may take over my world! Taste-testing cupcakes is not helping the waistline! ;)

    jae...I will value your creative input FOR SURE! :)

    That Girl Designs...thanks for the support!

    rosenow floral...likewise, m'dear!!! If I lived in the Bay Area we might make quite a team!

    kelie/maison luxe...thanks for your support and praise, Kelie! And thanks for being a taste-tester!

    M. Lane..."kick it"? YOU ROCK! Love that! Thanks for the support! :)

    Apt #34...thanks, Erin! Just tryin' to bring some sweetness to the world. :) Not that you haven't brought plenty already! :)

    melissa davis...overextending myself is part of my kharmic journey. In the lessons department. Trying to learn...TRYING!

    paloma...thanks! Will be stopping by La Dolce Vita from time to time for design inspiration!

    please sir...we can "hang" anytime! It's hard to not blog though...huh?

    Bitter Foodie...up to no good AND cupcakes! ;)

    Miss J...this is going to be our only form of connection isn't it? Oh wait! You mean I might be able to tempt you with buttercream? Thank for the love across the sound! Holla! Peace out, Gurloch! (sp?)

    Mr. Bluehaunt...Shipping cupcakes? I'll have to work on that aspect of the business later but consider your order placed! ;)

    Ronnie...hope I don't test your patience TOO much!

    Carolina...thanks for the Texas-sized support! :)

    And of course, Bee. Gotta get the last word in, huh? Look, Bee...that was a long time ago. I needed the money for college. I thought "fundies" was a great idea back then. But I'm trying to move on with my life now, Bee. So why do you and Chiclet keep dragging me back? Sure we had some good times, and I loved playing "Supremes" in the dressing room with you two while waiting to go on stage...but the calluses on the back of my knees from those poles reminds me that it just isn't worth it in the end. Bee...don't go there! ;)

    Thanks again for your support, Kids! It really is most appreciated! See you on the flip side! :)
