We’ve had so many snow (or ice) days around here, no school and sleeping in! But after while everyone one gets a little restless. On one day last week we decided to make some cookies for decorating. With just a cup and an empty soda bottle its easy to create a donut shaped cookie.
We had butterscotch flavoring for the frosting, and lots of candy eyes to play with.
Trying to blog everyday in May to get myself back into the habit. Even if it’s just something like a bunch of tiny homemade donuts. Got to love mini donut pans :)
Yesterday was my March Crafternoon, and since Easter is approaching I went the easy route, and we dyed eggs instead of making anything. I covered the tables in brown craft paper, so any drips or spills wouldn’t matter. Easter is one of my most favorite holidays because I love Spring, the colors, and the really vintage Easter decorations you can some times find.
We always do a white elephant swap, but this month I thought it would be a lot of fun to have every one make an Easter basket for the swap instead. I kind of went overboard filling up a basket I found at a thrift shop, but it was so much fun! All the baskets looked so cute on the table together. This photo actually wasn’t even all the baskets, a few arrived a little later.
wore a really cute Easter dress & dainty vintage gloves, so cute. Jessee
brought a bunch of beautiful macarons, including some marbleized ones that I wish I got a better photos of. I always have so much fun with these ladies, and it was a great way to kick off Spring (slightly early) in my mind. We had really lovely 60 degree weather yesterday and it’s supposed to get just as warm today. This week I’ve got lots going on again. My guy’s birthday is this week, and then his party is on Saturday, so lots to do. Of course I also got it in my head that I might like to switch around two of the rooms in our house, so we shall see what happens with that.
