Carrots Anyone?

This morning started sunny and warm here in Wisconsin. With such a cheerful start I got right to the task of packaging orders and getting some new items ready for the shop.http://www.grammasgifts.etsy.com/ Easter is not far off and the latest crop of emails has asked about Bunny hats. Here is what is available right now. There is time for some custom orders as long as they come in quick.  Of course, there will always be that one person wh waits until the day before to ask if I can rush a hat off to Alaska or something.   NOT posible

Oh no, a grey hare!

With Easter coming up quick I have several new projects in the works....Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Nemo like fish and some fun purses for Moms and the girls. I do need to fina\d a few more boy things to work on though.

With my packages done I am off to fix a batch of the carrot cake cupcakes. I am listing them on todays menu as a veggie!

By the way I have made 2 batches of the almond croissants and they were wonderful. The second batch I made in small croissants I bought at save a Lot and they were perfect for a brunch or bake sale. I would have taken pictures but they don't seem to last long enough at my house.
