I found this recipe off La Fugi Mama's blog. They are excellent! I tried them out for a little home-thrown birthday party last week and I think they were great! Here's the link...try them out yourself! There were a lot of other great cupcake recipes on her site. Even a few unconventional ones. I'd love to try a few of her other ideas.

A birthday gift

For a fellow tea drinker!
Now she can carry up to 6 of any of the kinds of tea that she likes with her anywhere she goes! A small gift to a friend who continuously bestows the gift of kindness upon me and many other people. I am very blessed by her.

An early Mother's day card!

I brought this upstairs today and said to my mom, "Happy Mother's Day!" She laughed (!) and said, "Mother's Day isn't until next week! Holly gave me a card too!" Last week Holly told me that this Sunday was Mother's day so I stayed up last night and made this card for my Mom. I guess we both should have checked the calendar and realized that we were a little bit early. Now that I think about it Mother's day isn't usually the first Sunday of the month, is it?Well, I think being early is better than being late and this way we can celebrate again next week. My mom deserves to be celebrated a lot anyway. :)

The only thing I don't like about this card is that I wrote Happy Mother's Day of the front. I wish I had a stamp that said that so I could have stamped it or perhaps if I had some kind of a rub-on transfer that would have worked well too. Unfortunately I didn't have either so I wrote on it. But I like the flowers. :)
