Key Lime Cupcakes

I made Key Lime Cupcakes the other day and they were very yummy. I got the recipe from this site, but I didn't use their frosting recipe. I kinda fiddles around with that and it came out pretty good. I mixed together
4oz softened cream cheese
4 Tbsp softened butter
2 cups powder sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp key Lime Juice
Then after I frosted the cupcakes I sprinkled Lime Jello on top and added lime juice to my water spritzer for scrapbooking and spritzed the tops of the cupcakes to make the lime jello stand out. It was fun and I brought them to a BBQ where they were a big hit.

Pesto Presto!

I made my first item from my fresh herb garden this afternoon. This is my beautiful basil that I made pesto out of minus the cheese and put it on my Lean Cuisine sandwich for lunch. It made it a little less Lean but much more Cuisine!

This is a Scrapbook page I made for a friend who was recently Baptized. She is redoing her room using a brown & blue color scheme, so this is my contribution!
Lyla and I went to the park today and she had her first ride on the swings. She wasn't quite so sure about it at first, but by the end she was laughing hysterically. It was so much fun!

Mother's day etc.

A card I worked on yesterday. I heart owls!

This was my first Mothers day and It was wonderful!!! I made paper boxes with homemade fudge for the mothers I see every week who continue to inspire and teach me what it means to be a mother. You Rock ladies!
My Husband did an awesome job this year. He made me breakfast in Bed and then presents!! Lyla gave me the Juno soundtrack and Across the Universe the movie. And Hubby gave me a new bible. The NASB edition, one I've really wanted, my favorite translation that I always have to go on the internet to read at Anyways, It was an awesome day. I'm still working on my mother's present. But I will post that after I am done and she has safely received it.

Transplant day!

It appears I may have a bit of a green thumb! Today I successfully transplanted the last of my herb garden I started over a month ago. Sadly the lavender, mint, and dill did not survive. Still three out of six for a beginner gardener, I have to say I am pretty proud of my little garden

Too Busy to Blog

Did a few more digital scrapbook pages recently. I've been crazy busy and distracted lately so I haven't had a chance to post in forever. So My Garden is coming along swimmingly and I've had the chance to finish some projects and start some new ones. I also recently joined a knitting guild through A fun group of people I look forward to getting better acquainted with. Well since a picture is worth a thousand words-

May Day

When I was a kid every year on May 1st we would make paper baskets and fill them with candy. My job was always to decorate the outside of the paper basket. Then we would place the basket of treats at the door of a friend and knock and hide. You aren't supposed to let them know who gave you the basket. When I tell my friends about this holiday no one has a clue what I'm talking about. We always called it May Day!
