M.E. Monday.......

I know I'm running a little late for our Mary Engelbreit Monday sharing but I have a good excuse. I've just returned home from a wonderful weekend in Ft. Myers where I went to visit my dear friend Christina. She loves ME and Cherries as much as I do. It's been a year since we've seen each other which is far too long for friends who only live 2.5 hours apart. Life just gets in our way sometimes. week is her birthday so we did a little celebrating early. I made these little cupcakes for her and took them down in the special ME cupcake box. Even the cupcake papers are ME. She freaked and loved them.
Not only did she love the way they looked she loved the had 3 I had 1 but then again...It is HER birthday.
I have one more thing to share for ME Monday. Christina for years now, has decorated her Christmas tree all in a ME theme. I don't even recall all of the stuff that I have made for her to put on the tree. After Christmas this past year I saw these tiny little red tree ornaments marked down to something like 70% off at JoAnns so I bought them thinking they looked like little Cherries. I came up with the idea to add some brown trim cord and green ribbon to turn them into Cherry ornaments. I finished them up last week so that I could take a dozen of them to Christina for her birthday. She loved them, too! It's so easy to give gifts to people who you know what they like.
These isn't a great picture of them but you get the idea of what they look like. You can see my reflection while take the
