See Lisa...I told you everything in my yard is DEAD!! And it is still going strong! But unfortunately, it rained all night so the snow is melting into all of the puddles on the ground. But still..it is pretty AMAZING!! Especially since it was in the 70s LAST WEEK!! Then the rains came, and it got COLD. Needless to say my sinuses are taking a beating. So I haven't been doing too much sewing! But I have been baking! I sent my Awesome Man out the door with this:
This is the third one I've done, so far. It is filled with Bavarian Creme...mmmmm. If you have a breadmaker and are interested in making one to celebrate Mardi Gras, HERE is the recipe I use. I don't remember the Bavarian Creme recipe I used..but I'm sure I googled it! :D
So...a little sewing going on, I am making some of these for the various children in our family. Super simple and tons of fun!
And with two holidays colliding, we've been busy making Valentines for the girls to bring to school...sadly, no pictures. But they had tons of fun embellishing hearts we cut with the Cricut!! And I finally got my desktop computer set up with the Sure Cuts Alot program so I can use the MANY free SVG files offered around blogland! Thank you!!
The Middle Child celebrated Valentine's Day, and then Mardi Gras at her Pre-K this week. She was able to wear the dress I made last year for Valentine's...as a top, but luckily she had a cute pair of red pants with hearts on the knees to pair with it. No picture of that either....yeah, I'm a slacker!! But I did make a new outfit for Mardi Gras...with pictures!!
Just a simple pillowcase style top with a pair of ruffled pants. Here's the action shot!
So, I will be crazy cleaning today since my Momma is coming for the weekend! We have some parades and a surprise party and a run with the chickens this weekend!! Wha-??! you say?? Well check THIS out. We will be in Church Point for the Courier de Mardi Gras...so much fun!! Those Cajuns are CRAZY!! :D So wherever you are HAVE FUN! And if you are venturing out to the Parades this season...bundle up and BE SAFE!! Until later...
