A Very Wet Weekend!

It is still raining cats and dogs here!  We took our son to the train (which was a bit delayed by the weather), did a few errands and spent the rest of the day quietly at home.  He made it back to his college in New Jersey safely but there is a lot of flooding all around our area and the rain is set to continue through tomorrow.

I  spent a big chunk of time (hours in fact) reading through the comments that were left on the posts I did as Guest Designer for Everyday Cricut last week so I could answer any questions that were asked.  It took me so long to get through them that it is too late for me to finish up all of the answers tonight.  It sounds like the coming week will be a great one with lots of new cartridges coming out  on "Hello Thursday" so be sure to visit Everyday Cricut to find out about them and leave comments to have a chance to win some of the wonderful prizes this week.

Since I know there are some people who are new to my blog because of the Guest Designer week, I thought I would remind you about one of the Easter projects I did last year that was very popular.  These bunny candy holders are so simple and quick to make and you can do many variations.

Here is a LINK to the original post with the file.  The bunny is from Doodlecharms and I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge to create the box part but you can substitute a rectangle from any cartridge.  This LINK will take you to a follow up post with some more information and show you a mistake and how to work around it!

These little bunnies are just the right size for the Ghiradelli squares - yummy!

Thanks for your patience.  I have several new projects to share but just want to finish up with last week's questions first!  I will try to post one of the new items tomorrow in addition to the Q and A post.  I am not quite finished with working through the emails so if you haven't heard from me, please don't think that you are being ignored.   It is going to rain all day tomorrow so I will be here finishing up on the email and comments.

I hope you are warm and dry wherever you live and that if it was a rainy weekend for you too that you were able to do some crafting!
