Congrats to all etsy artists on the FP!

This is exciting for me and only the second time it has happened...a treasury I curated has gone to the highly coveted Front Page of Etsy. I hope it brought these lovely artists many sales! xo!

For the birds...

I am afraid to jinx this beautiful weather but I will go for it...I think spring has arrived. At least I am desperately hoping it has--winter, I would like to send you packing. But winter I remember you are strong and mighty and I don't doubt you and your ability to come back in a snap. I just wouldn't like to see it until December. In the meantime---here are a few pictures of a homemade suet that Lil and I made for the birds during 2010 snowmaggedon. To quote Lillie "It was a BIIIIIGG project". Grapefruit shells, seeds, nuts, raisins, and leftover grease from the freezer. I wondered about the whole the thing but the birds were very appreciative and it was an afternoon of entertainment.

Cookie Monster Cupcakes

My daughter has amazing pre-school teachers! She still got to have her birthday celebration in class despite all the snow days. They suggested it too! So nice! As a teacher it is so hard to back track and get in all the past curriculum and to add in events also...Wow! So I made some cupcakes for the birthday celebration and I made them blue since it was blue day. I was inspired by this photo from Nick^D. My work pales in comparison but the kids enjoyed them and they sure made me smile. Who doesn't love cookie monster?
