Sunday fun!

It's BEAUTIFUL outside! It was beautiful yesterday also, and I spent time in gardening when I should have been doing something else (things on my 'to do' list). Nothing is better after a day of working in the garden than to have your husband grill burgers and sit outside and enjoy them with the kids. The ending of a great day.

Today I have been busy making muffins. I came across an image of some spring muffin picks a week ago and wanted to make some myself. I thought, what a great use for my stamp set "The Goode Egg". All those who purchased my "Le Bon Oeuf" Easter Kit will be able to make these cute little picks as well using their stamp set and the designer paper that came with it. Kits are still available....get them before Easter so you can make these cuties also!

I started out with 24 mini muffins and 9 large muffins. Before I had to chance to frost them the kids and husband snatched almost half of them. Luckily I had enough left to use the picks I designed.
The large muffins were filled with pineapple, something I had left over from a birthday cake. The coral bead on top of the flower pick came off of a strand of beads I recycled (no...they are NOT from Mardi Gras, LOL). These were so easy, AND fun! I hope it inspires you to create your own.

p.s. I just wanted to make sure you received my email. Since I have 'hotmail' my email sometimes goes into people's spam/junk box. I hope what I wrote helped you. Have a great week and I will be back to visit your blog :o)
