sweet n' sour

First, the sweetest gift! My good friend and quilting buddy, Jan, gave me this sweet cupcake basket for my birthday. (My b-day was in May but I am just getting around to these pictures).
I didn't even know that Longaberger made a cupcake basket. And this one has all the charm and zero calories.



It's week two of Suzi's class and we get to use some color....I have been waiting for this. My portraits look pretty good from across the room but put it on the computer and that's where reality sets in. I can see all of the places I need to work on....but then that's a good thing. Back to the drawing board.

Speaking of reality...did anyone see "So You Think You Can Dance" last night? I loved the last two dances....and yes, I bawled my eyes out along with everyone else.

Have a great day!

You did such a great job! Don't be too hard on yourself. I'm taking the same class, but didn't have time to look at videos from the week 1 and it's already week 2...

Great portrait. I REALLY want to take one of Suzi's classes. AND that cupcake basket...how cute. I will have to see if I can get me one of them. I didn't know Longaberger made them either but then again I haven't seen new Longaberger for quite a while. Take care.

I think you're doing a great job also. Facial features can be so daunting. Is the top to the basket ceramic? I was never a collector of Longaberger baskets, but I did get one from my realtor when we bought our house. Have a great day. Susan

Thanks guys!
Yes, the top of the basket is ceramic. And it's from a few years back.
Zorana, I cannot believe that they didn't publish your mail art! I wasn't all that pleased with mine but I had to rush it.

Good start on painting! Keep it up, girlie.

Ohhhh, I missed SYTYCD and I am so bummed. I had to get the hair done and that is the only night I can hook up with sis to do that. At least I got sis-time. I will try to see if it's on youtube or somewhere. I am so hooked on that show. Such talent. I hate seeing them voted off now.
