Easter Cupcake Crafting

The cupcake crew got together recently for a little Easter craft project.  Here is the prototype that Jill brought.

Before crafting, it is important to take nourishment.  Starbucks makes the best scones.

We received an unexpected package in the mail from our Illinois friend Mary Beth - how exciting.

So many nice surprises in cute handmade bags.

She sent 2 egg coloring books and we each received a wonderful project bag, candy, kleenex and a wonderful note.  Thank you Mary Beth!  We wish you were here with us.

After all that excitement we needed more nourishment, lol.   Susan made cheddar cheese soup and served it with bacon, cheese, and broccoli - delish

On to crafting.  We wound fuzzy green yarn around hard green styrofoam wreaths.

We then decorating them with plastic and candy eggs.  Jill made these cute picks on the computer, how clever is that?

This is Jills.  She is going to use it as a candle wreath.

Here is mine.

Thanks Jill for a fun craft project.

How about wearing it as a hat?  The Easter Parade is coming to town.

Here is mine on my front door.  Let's pretend that is not me in the robe, lol.

I briefly reported last week that poor coco had a belly ache.  After not eating for 2 days, she was kept in the hospital and re-hydrated and put on antibiotics.  They don't know what she got into, but it was bad; and she had it good (bad).

After a couple days of this:

Hooray, she's back to her old self.  I'm so grateful.

You still have time to enter my giveaway for a CD of the quilts of the AQS show in Lancaster; click here.

See you Friday!
