A good Friday!

Wow...it seems like I was just here, but it has actually been almost a week! So, although I haven't been getting much crafting done, Hazel has been one busy girl.

On Sunday, she painted pictures for "everyone she loves". I guess I need to get a couple of those in the mail. And, today she was busy decorating all kinds of prettiful Easter eggs. I can't believe I didn't get pictures. Shame on me, ya' know? But, I'll be sure to get plenty on Sunday when she goes a-huntin' for those eggs. Luka wasn't really into the whole egg adorning process. He was more concerned with cleaning up the mess.

My mom sent that vacuum for Hazel's birthday. The little sneak discovered it early, so I went ahead and gave it to her. She played with it for, oh, about 2 minutes. Then, she decided that she would rather busy herself with Lite Brite. That's okay because Luka took right over. He was using it just like a grown up. Back and forth, back and forth. So serious about it, too. See Bryan...if a one year old can work a vacuum...so can you. ;0)

It was a great, relaxing day playing with the kids. I also finally found a WONDERFUL Mexican restaurant here. Actually, my new neighbor/friend, Amanda found it. It was so YUM! They had the best nachos, and good margaritas to boot! I will definitely be going back there again soon.

When I got home from lunch, a package from the lovely Mel was waiting for me at my front door. This is what was inside:

Thank you, thank you SO MUCH, Mel! It's gorgeous, and I will treasure it FOREVER! I'm snuggled up under it as I type, and Hazel keeps fighting me for it. Tee hee! What a lovely way to round out Good Friday! That, and, I finally get to announce that I will be the guest DT for April for one of my fave kits in all the land...Red Velvet Kit Club! And, I get to do it alongside one of my fave artists Michelle Clement! So excited am I! And, have you checked out the sneak for their April kit?!? Yum-o!

And, how about a little Good Friday goodness to spread around? Want Label Tulip's April kit for free? Here's your chance! Just go here, and leave a comment on the thread with at least 3 suggestions for kit names or themes that you think would fit the Label Tulip style. Easy peasy. So, go. Now! You don't want to miss out on the April kit...Cindee rocks the yummy kits, and this one will be sure to please!

Love the update on your little ones, and yes, I agree. If a one year old can run a vacuum cleaner, so can a grown man!! hehe. I'm so glad that the quilt arrived safely and that you liked it!!! Hope you enjoy it for many years to come. Happy Easter!!!

Love the name Hazel! Not so much as a child when everyone used to be named Michelle and Mary, but as an adult it fits. Love that you used an old name for your daughter...beautiful!

Anywoo..thanks for the sneak of the RVKC kit...so need to jump all over this one! I love it and gigantor congrats to you and Michelle! I love the Label Tulip kits, but I don't want to leave cheesy crappy name comments. I bet I know the Mexican restaurant you are talking about. At least I think I do...I haven eaten at many Mexican places..but the one in Fayetteville was awesome! Too bad my sister in law moved from there...I loved it!!! Anywoo, have a wonderful day and week...hope your Easter was fab!

xx, Amber
