My Mom got in on the April Fool's spirit. She used doughnut holes dipped in chocolate to make cake pops. Then she dipped some raw brussel sprouts in chocolate to look like cake pops. She put them all mixed together on one plate so it was luck of the draw when someone grabbed one to eat.
I'm not gonna lie.....it was pretty funny watching people's reactions when they got a brussel sprout.
It was a good Easter, too.
Here's some of our Easter-ness (That's a word, right?):
I made this cheese ball.
It's supposed to look like a chick.
If you close one eye, squint the other a lot, and concentrate, you can make out the chick.
The Easter Bunny still delivered baskets.
If you can see the llama in the llama basket, she is awesome. She's super soft and is wearing pink llama pajamas. If you'd like to order one of your own, I got mine from Polka Dot Pig Folk Art. She's got a lot of fantastic stuff.
I made these individual size apple pies using cupcake tins. I asked Abigail to use the left over crust to put decorations on each. She made Play Boy bunnies. Really?!
This is a final finish on a cross stitch piece I think I had shown previously. The pattern is from Bent Creek. It's the Easter Cracker. I stitched it up on a tan aida. I glued magnets to the back after I mounted it on a square board. The background is a piece of scrapbooking paper. The magnets on the back of the cross stitch piece are holding it in place. Then I made a simple bow from some burlap ribbon, which has a magnet glued to the back of it. They are all sticking onto a black metal chalk board that I got at the dollar spot in Target.
I can change this out as often as I like...............if I can manage to get more pieces finished.
Anyway, it's an idea.
