TDIPT update and Easter pictures

This month on TDIPT I have some more wool pinkeeps for you. These are stuffed with crushed walnuts, which makes a weighty little pin cushion-I love them, they stay right where you put them, and they are so soft!! (Keep away from the pooch though!)

Well as usual during the months of April and May life is extremely busy! And with my 3rd kid graduating from high school this year we have all of the extra festivities around that too. Littlest daughter is still in basketball and her track season has kicked up with 3 meets this week! But in a few weeks everything will be done and we will be able to slip into the easier life of summer, ahhhh!!! I can't wait!

So just to catch you all up, we had a lovely Easter, how about you? Chelsea and I decided to get busy and make 2 Easter cakes, a sacrificial lamb cake (red velvet with cream cheese frosting! LOL!) and a lemon peep cake! LOL! We also made peep-tinis(martinis with peeps in them) and we molded some beautiful pascal lamb ornaments with our repro antique cookie mold that we got from House on the Hill. Super fun! So here are some pictures, a little late but still worth seeing I think!
Our lamb cake!
Our lemon peep cake-yum!
Beautiful ornament we made from repro antique german cookie mold from House on the hill. We molded it out of paper clay and then antiqued it. It is the pascal lamb laying his head down on the book of life in a gesture of perfect sacrifice! So kewl!! We gave these to our family and friends tied with a pretty spring ribbon!
Relaxing after all of our efforts with a Peep-tini! (this was really too sweet for me, but Chelsea and Gary loved them!) Sorry the picture is so fuzzy, we were trying out a new camera.

Your wool ornaments are wonderful, and I just love your precious Lamb and Peeps cakes. Both are adorable.

The clay mold of the lamb lying on the Book of Life, is just beautiful. You are truly creative!

I like the bee skep pincushion best.
The Peeps cake is just perfect for Easter. Looks yummy.
