Easter Fun

Easter snuck up on me this year.

We dyed some eggs.

Had an egg hunt.

Made a bunny cake.

Whew, I think that was enough.

I went out and bought This Book at Hobby Lobby:

The kids and I made Peep Smores, but the kids wouldn't eat them. . . They really puffed up in the microwave though. Make sure to check out The Peep Show II at the Washington Post, click on Gallery to see the photos.

In crafty news, I don't have much to show this week. I'm taking a beginning drawing class, so I've been working on that. I'm trying to do an hour's worth or a drawing a day, but I haven't gone much beyond basic forms. We haven't moved on to shading or shadows, so they don't look very good, really unfinished. I guess I could try it on my own, I don't think the teacher cares.

I have to say though, that the class is large (12) and I was shocked that many of the students are art professionals, who have left the field and are returning. I feel like the lone newbie in a room full of ringers. Must stop comparing myself to others. . .

So far most of my drawings are of sewing notions. Maybe I'll post a few when I deem them *finished*. . .

Love the Peep-o-ramas. I think the tomb of Peepankahman (or whoever!) was good -- but I think the Amy Winepeep should have won! What wit. Peepy Winehouse...I'm LOL! With our 3 year old and 1 year old, I limited the peeps brought into our house (only 2 boxes, thank you), and they went FAST. I'm curious to hear how the sugar coated mallow works in the s'more.
