Pink Saturday: Crochet a Pink Cupcake!

Hello friends!


I am happy to be participating in another Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound! You know I'm always on the lookout for "more" craft ideas...as if I have the time! But you know how it is, you're always thinking..."oh, if I have the time, I'm going to make some of [name your item here]"...now if we can JUST find the time, haha!

How about crocheting some pink cupcakes? Oh, well, atleast it saves on the calories! ;)

Take care!

Hugs,

Sheri
