My calendar is finished! I thought I had some orange ribbon here at the house but, when I went to look for it, I could not for the life of me find it so Em and I had to run down to JoAnn's and pick up some orange hanging ribbon. At this late stage of the game I was not going to screw it up by using something random.

While we were at JoAnn's, I noticed that they carry bone folders in the paper crafts section. Huh. Who knew?

Oh, you want pictures, right? )

After Easter, I hung Emily's easter basket on the porch until it could be divested of the ants it had acquired. As it turns out, that might have not been a good idea because now I will have to get her a new basket and new grass anyway- a bird has made a nest in it. I think it's a wren and Emily says there are 4 eggs but I couldn't get at the right angle to see,

After dinner, Em said she was still hungry so I made some of the No Yeast Cinnamon Rolls- with the strict instruction that there would be a picture taken this time. I did actually get one so here is what the cinnamon rolls look like- for the first 30 seconds they are out of the oven!

After the first 30 seconds, you can refer to the picture I originally posted.

I notice that, as I finished up this project, I got ideas for two more advent calenders.

One for Thanksgiving- a tree with 30 leaf doors that has a harvest or thanksgiving scene and on the inside, something to be thankful for. The trunk could be a double door that opens to Pilgrims and Indians eating together to be opened on Thanksgiving independently of the numbered doors since the date is not the same every year.

The other one is for Easter with a picture in the middle and egg shaped doors around all four sides- 10 to a side so that it begins on Ash Wednesday. On the inside of the doors would be abridged quotes from the book The Country Bunny and the Little Gold Shoes (my favorite Easter story) with illustrations from the book as the pictures. I could also use gilding techniques on the Bunny's shoes when she gets them. And the outside of the doors would be 40 different easter egg designs- some of them giving nods to other Easter stories.

Right here. This is why I am never ever done with all my projects. I finish one- and have ideas for two more. It's like the stinking doubling cube in backgammon.
