- Jenny made stockings
- Holly worked on a scrappy/canvas project
- Mother quilted
- I made cards (okay only two) and played with paint
Its funny where inspiration can take you. I’ve been wanting to bake some cupcakes…with all the cupcake HYPE going around. LOL! Found a recipe in Country Home (one of my favorite non sb magazine).
It was friend Holly’s birthday last week, so I made them in honor of her.
They are quite tasty…lemon with lemon cream cheese frosting!
Here’s the card I made for her. Look familiar? LOL! I’m stuck on those cute flowers.
So, then when the girls came over…Holly suggested I get a canvas and paint something–as she was working on her canvas project. I thought, hmm…okay! So I went to town –I didn’t really know what I was going to paint…just started with the blue. THen I added the scallops…then it just seemed like a cupcake was a perfect fit. And it was!!
You can’t tell so much, but the icing part has glitter and so does the cherry. Methinks it might still need some dimensional "sprinkles" –maybe some glass beads?? Hmm? I’m thinking I’m going to give this to Sara for Christmas…she would love it and well, she is SWEET!! So, I suppose I’ll have to make Abby a painting too! How fun!
I haven’t really painted anything since I designed my Flowerful line with Junkitz. I handpainted all the elements (flowers, dots, paislies, stripes, etc) for the collection. I enjoyed that so much and I have all the original paintings still. I want to do something special with them…I think that would be so cool. They really mean a lot to me.
So, now I want to paint something else…hmm? Any suggestions? Remember, I’m no Van Gogh–its got to be simple 😉 LOL!
Hope you have a great Sunday.
