A brush, friendship, easter-spirit and a creative mind!

It’s been a fight against time to get these ready for today, I’ll tell you that and today I was able to give them to my beloved friends! Which is the reason of me not posting this earlier, since I know they’ll be reading. Anyhow, this is really easy and fun to do!

All you need is some cardboard-eggs. I bought some that were made for being painted but I’ve also used these”ordinary” ones that already have a pattern on it.

Then I just simply painted them with some colours that I know my friends like and decorated them with nice ribbons and some stickers. Finally I filled them with sweets and cute friendship quotes!

And this is the result!

The best thing about this ‘project’ was to see the expressions on my friends faces when they got their eggs. And the comments, and the hugs and everything. However My friends sometimes seem to overreact in these situations making it seem like I am like the best best best friend ever – type of thing.

Tough, I guess I will have to survive that, when it all comes around it is about making others happy. And I know that it is necessary when holidays are coming! I know I feel the pressure, having lunch with the entire family may not always be as sweet as it sounds!

Making others happy always cheers me up so do don’t you believe I did it all for you my dear friends!

Shaun the sheep inspired cupcakes

Finally my creativity is once again flowing the way it should! Yesterday there was a cupcake club meeting and look what we accomplished! It’s truly amazing how cute they are, we’re just great!

At first we were only supposed to make “Shaun the sheep” cupcakes but since we had many different colors of sugarpaste we couldn’t resist making some pigs, snakes and butterflies as well!

To make these cute cupcakes the first thing you need to do is my basic recipe which you can find HERE tough as you may already understand – skip the Oreo cakes!

Then all you need to do is a frosting which you can find in the same post but once again – skip the Oreo cakes! For decoration we have used white chocolate and sugarpaste, the white chocolate is wool and eyes!

Good luck!

I need to get going to school so that we can sell them cupcakes and get money for charity!

“Quoting” Shakespeare? Yes I am!

After having posted about health and training I got a feeling that I had to make it up somehow. Therefore I made cupcakes! half the cupcakes became lovely Oreo-cupcakes an the other half became, not-Oreo-cupcakes!

Tomorrow I will give you a tutorial and the recepie so that you can indulge in these sweets as well!

Paint, colour and that wonderful thing called friendship

Once again I have been painting, colouring my eggs. There may be weeks left until Easter but I want to be prepared. I’ve got lots of eggs to paint and fill with candy and sweet messages before I can give them to my friends when Easter is here.

I’m not anyone that’s got lots of traditions and yearly plans when it comes to Easter except for this small thing. I believe I take advantage of Easter using it as a reason for making my friends happy. Of course I try to make my friends happy everyday but sometimes I want to do that extra thing (for example give away an egg full of candy and a message saying how much they mean to me) to bright up my friends’ day.

That’s what life really is about isn’t it? Making the people you love happy which eventually gives happiness to oneself as well. It may not be “the” purpose of life but among other things it makes up a great part of what I want my life to be about. When it all comes around that is the real purpose of life, the reasons you pick out yourself.

It’s like life is our own smorgasbord with purposes that we spend our time trying to fulfill.

Crafting

So, this is what I have been up to lately. Making seating arrangements/placing-cards for a wedding party. I’ve made almost a hundred of them, now it’s just the name-writing process left and then I’m finished!

I’ve also played tennis, studied mathematics, psychology and physics. Tonight I deserve a good night, which I will have, unfortunately without my love.
