Happy Mother's Day

We've had a lovely weekend here. Kirsten was at a loose end yesterday ("I'm boooooored - well it is the first day of the school holidays!) so we decided to make Cinnabons. Mmmmm.

Unfortunately after 5 minutes Kirsten remembered that she'd tried them at Universal and didn't like them so she left me to it. But I persevered! OMG they were delicious (even if I do say so myself). I got the recipe from here

Next time I make them I would just make half quantities as it made about 10 ginormous buns!
Or maybe freeze half. To give an idea of size that dish is the one I use to make lasagne or pasta for all of us!

I was also spoiled as Kirsten made me breakfast in bed for mother's day. She gave me a lovely card that she'd drawn herself and a "Mum's survival kit" which included a jar of Nescafe Gold Blend, some Nutrigrain bars, a star bar, three Yankee candles and a Burt's Bees lip balm. Smart girl.
I also got some chocolates from Kenneth when he eventually surfaced post noon and a lovely bunch of flowers from both of them.

This is the card I made for my mum (whose favourite colour is Turquoise) and I stamped some kraft parcel paper when I realised I had run out of gift wrap. Always useful to have my craft supplies on hand.

I am working out the details of some new classes I will be running soon. Hoping to do a scrapbook/minibook/3D project class and a card making class every month - watch this space for more information coming soon.

Yum Yum If I was on this healthy eating plan I would be asking for the recipy but too tempting. Glad you had a nice mother's day. Love the card you made your mum, and the gift wrap is perfect as well
