This past week was filled with crafting and baking fun for me ~ I started out the week with the Project Inspire{d} linky party ~ If you’ve never linked up I would love to have you stop by and share your posts  Monday at 8 p.m. EST ~ It’s a great party that I share with 4 hostesses ~ Heather from Setting for Four, Randi from Dukes & Duchesses, Shannon from Madigan Made and Nancy from Artsy Chicks Rule.

On Wednesday I kicked off the Mother’s Day Blog Hop with a Chalkboard Painted Lazy Susan ~ leave Mom some love notes on it all throughout the year ~ a Mini Succulent Garden planted in a Vintage Colander and a free dowloadable Mother’s Day Card.

Be sure to check out all of the other gals for some more Mother’s Day Gift Inspiration AND starting next Saturday, the 27th, there will be a GIVEAWAY with the winner receiving a $200.00 Visa Gift Card and jewelry from Lucy’s Inspired and junXtaposition.

On Friday I posted a recipe for some moist and delicious ‘Best” Banana Bread.

Last, but not least, I made it into the finals {YAY} in the Spring for Avocados Amazing Craft Giveaway for my 3D Bunny Wall Art.

Voting continues through Tuesday and I would appreciate any votes {all you have to do is go to this link on facebook and leave a comment in the thread} ~ I could win a super prize.

I hope you stop by this coming week to see what’s shakin’ here at Cupcakes and Crinoline and have a week filled with JOY and BLESSINGS!
