Random shots ...

The above shot was taken 3 weeks ago - after a weekend of snow to sealevel, the following Friday a high of 19 degrees (norm is about 10degrees ish!) I went for a walk along the street and found the trees with blossom all over?! Think the season has become slightly screwed somehow?! But today after 12 days of rain/drizzle/more rain we have had a dry day. The sun has poked through the high cloud - so nice to be able to go outside, have the windows open for fresh air - and especially to be able to shoo the kids outside to play! We were getting a fair bit of cabin fever here! LOL!
Now with rainy days, these days in our house are playdough days! So last weekend even before breakfast Emma was asking for the playdough. So when the kids started playing, I got out some fimo stuff and played alongside them and made these .....

It's it such a cute button! (Put the coin beside for a size indicator - thats not how much they cost! LOL!)

Also made these ...

Will make some more at some point, only had these 3 colours so might have to go and get some more! Oh yeah, after making them you bake them in the oven for 10-15 min and they become rock hard. Might just have to do a layout and use my cupcake button on it! Thought I might even have a go at painting the top of them with Kindiglitz - but not sure? Or maybe glue some little beads on as sprinkles? What do you think?

Well must away, having a progressive dinner tonight and the main meal is at our place! Have just finished cleaning the house, and now have a bag of spuds to peel and a pumpkin to chop up!!

Later :)

Oh, those cupcakes are so cute!! I love the button, I think you could easily turn this into a little business, considering how many cupcake lovers we know! LOL :-)

Have fun at your progressive dinner, I remember doing those heaps "back in the day" ... so much fun! Might have to have another one me thinks!

How very cute and very clever. I too, remember the days of progressive dinners.

Very cool layouts too.

Very clever of you! I like ... a lot! I reckon painting with kindy glitz would look cool ... give it that sugar coated look. You can get fimo stuff that has a sparkle in it which might look neat. Like Hannah said ... make a bunch and sell them ... call it your SENZ fund ...

Very cool cupcakes Mich. Oh I can see blue sky above your blossoms - I've forgotten what that looks like LOL!
