Christ is Risen ! to all those celebrating Eastern Orthodox Easter !
and... I'm a winner in Mica's apron giveaway! She had the giveaway for her 300th post, and for her b-day. And our birthdays are 1 day apart. How cool is that ? :)
Check out her great blogs at Garb-oodles Soup, or The Child's Paper to see the goodies that I won !! Mica is a fabulous artist. I just love her work!!!!! (enough exclamation marks here? :) ) I'd love to take her class over at ZNE ConvenZioNE being held at the end of the month thru the beginning of May in Pleasanton, Ca.. Her little Poppet class is my favorite of all the classes. Wish I could go. Maybe you can, if you're in the area?
Oh, I'm a Lucky Cat !!!
...off for more Easter goodies. Our guests, (Mark, Alex's boyfriend, and Owen, Serge's best friend, came w/ us to midnite service at our tiny little church -a beautiful service). Delicious foods were had by all at the Agape breakfast, and in our blessed baskets.
Cheese Paskha and Kulich and Krendel' all came out deliciously, thank goodness, but will not last long I'm afraid, because they are such good batches. Serge and Owen helped make the sweet breads. (It's a big job, and I made 2 batches, with 2 yeast packets). Couldn't have done it w/out them. I actually got to rest before church because of their help. Got to bed by 4:30, what with Agape breakfast afterwards.
Pictures to follow hopefully, when I get them from my daughter and her camera.
New beginnings! Spring ahead! Life awaits:)
