Craft!: May Day Flower Wreath

at 9:43 PM 0 comments
My favorite holiday is coming soon! May Day! I'm taking about the traditionally Celtic holiday, not the International Workers Day. I love this holiday for many reasons. Foremost of which coincides with my love of Elizabeth I, historically. Even she was known to enjoy going "Maying" (dropping bouquets of flowers on people's doorsteps) as a child. And of course, the absolute lack of Hallmark around this holiday continues to fuel my love of this holiday.

So in honor or May Day I decided to make a beautiful flower wreath out of paper!

Purple Cupcake Fiasco!

So I went to make my friend Gabrielle some cupcakes. She really loves the Pink Champagne Cupcake recipe I found in a Betty Crocker cookbook. And her favorite color is purple.
So I set about making a batch of purple champagne cupcakes.

All was going well, until I went to put the second tray of cupcakes into the oven. My kitchen is fairly small, and so I only opened the oven door half-way. As I was putting the tray in, the oven door started to close. I let go of the tray to catch the falling door... The door closed anyway, my finger was slightly burnt, and, well... the cupcake tray went upside down into the oven.
