Well, last week was just one of those weeks. So despite utter exhaustion that surmounted by Friday afternoon I managed to make lemon curd, 10 dozen decorated sugar cookies and 6 dozen cupcakes all intermixed within my 'real job' work week. I almost successfully made it through the work week without any casualties. Unfortunately, Friday morning when I was making the cupcakes after a 24 hour shift, my brain was synapsing at about 20% of normal and my favorite measuring cup (from one of my favorite friends) suffered destruction. I felt the cup slip from my fingers, saw it fall into the bowl of the electric mixer (which was running on low), knew I needed to turn it off to save it but just couldn't move fast enough. In mere seconds I heard a bang, pop, crash and knew my little guy was busted apart...sure enough he was.
R.I.P. Mr. 1/4 c. measuring cup
Despite my loss, everything else turned out just great and hopefully everyone else thought so as well. Here are some pics, I am splitting them into two posts as there are a lot of pics!
Loved the way all the lemons looked on my counter after making my lemon curd!
4 dozen pink & green 'get well' balloons
4 dozen 'get well' coookies that I got to be totally creative with the design. I love those sets, it is fun to do a total mix and match set that somehow all comes together. Here were some of my favs. I loved these circle ones, they reminded me of doughnuts!
love the bottom one here!
this was totally one of my favorites, I am loving the brush embroidery!
