Star Card

Here is a card that I have been working on here and there when I have time to pop into my craft room. I had some of the awesome star paper left over after another card so I thought I would try to make uni-sex birthday card. Then I added ribbon and rhinestones... Can it still be for a boy?? maybe..

I like it anyway and had fun getting back into crafty mode. I just picked up a whole bunch more stamps at a craft/garage sale last week & hopefully I can play with them soon! My daughter has already tried a few of them out for me.
I also took a picture of the paper I used for the card stock, it is by Creative Memories. It looks like Kraft paper, but has journal lines on it and now it will be easier for me to write a message on the inside :)

It is supposed to be in the 70's this week in Minneapolis. I can't wait. I found this photo from a month or so ago when we took my husband's aunt to the Como Conservatory and it just said spring to me!

I could not find our Easter decorations this year. Not a big surprise at our house, but I know that I had a bag of them somewhere... We decided since we already had some art up that my daughter made at Pre-school that we would just add to it. We wanted to make some fun Peep art. I found on the peep website how to make colored "grass" by taking coconut, putting it into a plastic baggie with a couple of drops of food coloring and shake it up until mixed. My daughter went a little crazy with the colors, but I let her pick them.

We made three littler "nests" for the chicks and one big "nest" for the whole "family"(everything around here is a family with my five year old). For the little nests we used some big tea light candle holders. For the bigger nest we used an antique plate, pink grass and the family members each lay their own colored eggs and in a row, I guess.
Well it was fun and looked festive! It was almost too cute to eat...

Jury Duty

Ok, so It's been forever since I last posted! Last week I was on jury duty on a federal case, but I am done now- yea! It was educational, I will have to say that.

I am super busy at work with the interest rates so low, so I will not be posting as often as usual. But I am making wedding invitations for my cousin and hopefully I can post what I am working on because I think they look really good :)

Mini Sushi Cakes

One of my friends make these awesome Sushi cakes for Goldy's birthday when she was in town, She started with brownies and fondant and went crazy from there! They looked so real and tasted yummy too. Danielle even made chopsticks, wasabi, ginger strips and the fake grass stuff that comes with sushi. I brought them to Bennihana's to surprise her.
