Productive Monday

Today was a good day. I was bound and determined to get some sort of crafty things done today and I succeeded!!

First I finished up a card and bookmark (which I will post at another time as I really like how it turned out!) for the wonderful Sue, aka Mrs.Micawber, as a little (very little!) thank you for the wonderful package she sent

when I won a giveaway on her blog :) Inside the small surprise package were these wonderful earrings

Which I love. She has a really great tutorial on her blog if you'd like to make your own (*click here*)!

After that it was a little jewelry making of my own :) I chose to do some of the beady and crochet cotton variety

Then I finished up this long-neglected hat that has been shoved aside for want of a button


And to finish off the day, I made some cupcakes to send to work with hubby. I guess the guys there are still in a state of disbelief that I can make them with a box of mix and a can of soda! Yep, one box of cake mix mixed with one can (355mL) of soda, bake as package directs! Can't get any easier than that!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Monday! Please check my side bar to see all the blogs I am trying to link up to today :)
