Another Hat...

I was saving this till Christmas time BUT we have had sooooo much snow lately I couldn't resist. This is my version of a Snowman's Hat filled with goodies.

I have been MIA lately. As a few of you know, my dear, dear friends ran a mom & pop business locally and they were both hurt badly in a motorcycle accident. She is still in a coma and he is in rehab and probably will be for at least a month. I have been working to help their son keep the business up and running while they are away plus my other 'two' jobs! We continue to keep them in our prayers.

We recently celebrated our grand daughter's first birthday! She is reading all the magazines!

Until next time!

St. Patty's Day!

Is this not the cutest idea for your little Leprechaun cupcake! The pattern was purchased from Silhouette and cut using Gumball Green, Basic Black and Gold cardstock (Stampin' Up). 

I have made the pattern smaller to accommodate the little St. Patty's Day cupcakes from Wally Mart. Since you can only use store bought treats at pre-school, these would be perfect for that. Oh BTW the cupcake in this one is a candle from the $ Store. I have people that want to 'test' if it is real or not. LOL
