This is another Pinterest idea I saw. I liked the quote too. I made this during the power outage, and the irony wasn't lost on me that, at the moment I was making this, my attitude was not one of gratitude, and my day had no blessings, until Michelle called and invited me to come over.
I burned off a lot of energy the day we finally got power restored. Besides doing five loads of laundry, cleaning the house and car, catching up on Facebook & the blogs, and doing a bunch of dishes, I made this 'State Love' project too. I printed the maps from THIS website, then stuck shiny hearts on where I've lived.
It looks good with the PNW postcard collage.
It was my intent to make Mardi Gras and Valentines cupcakes over the weekend we had the blizzard, but obviously couldn't so I made them on Fat Tuesday evening, using green, purple & yellow batter, then iced in purple with gold & green sugar sprinkled on them.
I made some strawberry jam filled cupcakes but the jam sank to the bottom. Oh well. I mixed strawberry jello mix into some confetti frosting and it tastes sooooooo good! Then I coloured more of the confetti icing red and piped those sad looking hearts on them. They may look a bit wonky but Oh. My. God. I snarfed one down and it took all my willpower not to eat another! And the jello in the frosting? Uh, yes please.
