It's been a while since I mentioned the cupcake topiaries that the Kentucky DAR Junior Club is making for our National Junior Luncheon this summer, but we're definitely still working on them! Out of 6000 mini-faux-cupcakes we need, about 4500 of them are finished. We set up workshops across the state, so this weekend I drove down to my folks (mom and dad hosted the far Western KY session). The cupcake decorating started about 9:15 and lasted until after 4:00. You wouldn't think cupcake decorating would be tiring, but I guess six or seven straight hours of anything would tire anyone out.
Sunday, I got back just in time to help my friend K with a craft project for her work. She's the volunteer coordinator at a local non profit and wanted to recognize her volunteers (did you know that April is the month designated for recognizing volunteers?) with a bag of candy. K stamped thank you cards, our friend B stuffed the bags, and I tied the two together with pretty bows. We made about 100 bags then turned our attention to the UK game.
So I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend away from the spreadsheets. With luck, I'll be back to regular crafty posts soon!
