My Mom

asked if i was going to have
a valentine party for my quilt class.
i wasn't planning on it, until she mentioned it, of course.
and now my mind is racing with ideas of how cute it would be.
i hate when this happens.
of course, i have to make these cute cupcakes that i found in a country living magazine years ago. the link to the insturctions are here.
now, i have to think up a small quilt that i can teach.
oh the pressure i put on myself.
do any of you do this.
i know how to say no, that's not the problem. the problem is, in my head i begin to think how cute it could be, how fun it would be, how much my class would enjoy it, and what cute pictures i could take to post. but in the back of my mind i know i'll get stressed out, run out of time, not find exactly what i have conjured in my mind and get frustrated. the house will again be a disaster, dinner won't get made and i'll probably snap a few too many times.
but i'll do it anyway, because in the end...
i'll love it.
it's a sickness and i need help people.

(i'll let you know how it turns out. thanks mom)

I don't have this problem because I'm so unbelievably uncreative. But I do understand the stressing out, not getting dinner made, etc. That happens to me even when I'm not planning a party.:)
Those cupcakes look amazing! Everything you do is wonderful.
