Sigh - so many fun things to do - so little time.
We had a craft show yesterday.  We weren't expecting much in the way of sales - especially when we got there and found out that there was a rummage sale in the middle of the room.  But, it was a fundraiser for the Senior All Night party and I am a big proponent of the young folks finding a nice place for fun where they will be safe and watched over.  I'm such a mom.  LOL!  I talked to one of the moms today and the kids exceeded their fundraising goal by $100 dollars so that's good.  We enjoyed visiting with the other crafters, too.  We're not all that well known in Alma, so it's also good exposure for us.

I never posted the wedding cupcakes that I made so here's a pic of them.   They haven't been unmolded in this picture.  I'll post another one tomorrow so you can see what they look like.  Michelle, of Sweet Scents Soaps posted a great idea about packaging these which I will also take a pic of and post.

I snagged Anna to help me with a haul video on You Tube.  I ordered some things from Kris at Kayorcee Creations.  The soapmakers on You Tube are a fun group - very supportive of each other.  Here is the video Anna and I did.  If you get a chance, check out Kris' shop and her videos.

Word of the day:
Fourth Sunday of Easter
Saint(s) of the day : St Isidor the Farmer
Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 10:1-10.

Jesus said: «Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever does not enter a sheepfold through the gate but climbs over elsewhere is a thief and a robber.
But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.
The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice, as he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
When he has driven out all his own, he walks ahead of them, and the sheep follow him, because they recognize his voice.
But they will not follow a stranger; they will run away from him, because they do not recognize the voice of strangers."
Although Jesus used this figure of speech, they did not realize what he was trying to tell them.
So Jesus said again, "Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the gate for the sheep.
All who came (before me) are thieves and robbers, but the sheep did not listen to them.
I am the gate. Whoever enters through me will be saved, and will come in and go out and find pasture.
A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy; I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.
