I haven't been doing too much crafting since my last post. I think I needed a crafting break or rather one of my other hobbies was calling to me instead. Over the past few weeks I've been itching to get my baking supplies, not my paper supplies, out and in use. I was off work for the Easter Break and I spent most of my time baking up a storm for the kids and company. Here are a couple of things that I made.
My cousin has been bugging me and bugging me, for the past month, to make her Elephant Ears! I only make them once in a while because the recipe I had called for a long rise time with the dough...but then I found this new recipe that rises in half the time and tastes way better. Anyhoo..I did promise I would make her some, so here they are. I had a few other cousins over that day, so suffice to say they didn't last long! Here is the link to the Elephant Ears Recipe
Now I mentioned a Pumpkin in my post title today, yes I did..because I got to hang out with some wonderful ladies for our first "Ladies Night out with Paper Pumpkin!" at the beginning of the month. It wasn't a full out Crop or craft night or anything like that, it was just a quiet evening with friends to do a short half hour project that will hopefully (fingers crossed) promote further connections with friends (I want to send out my cards to friends that I don't get to touch base with very often..who says snail mail is dead!). Here are a couple of photos of the very first Paper Pumpkin project. I really enjoyed this project from Stampin' Up!'s newest product line. It was short, sweet, and since it required no effort at all, actually seemed to enhance the socializing part of the fun as well.
