Inspiration from the weirdest places

Wednesday night I had to attend a PTO (exactly like a PTA but without all the legal nonsense) meeting for the Family Fun Committee that I'm on.
I'd committed to the meeting and then realized that my husband wouldn't be home to watch the kids because he had a Rangers hockey game that night. (I'm a NY Rangers Hockey Widow) I would have to bring the kids with me if I wanted to attend.
I talked to the other members and it turned out that some of them might also have to bring their offspring.
I wound up at Wal-Mart searching for the Kiss M&M's (found them!) and while I was there, I grabbed a bunch of crayons and coloring books for the kids to keep them occupied during our meeting. As I was cruising the toy aisle this package of animals jumped out at me and without a second thought I tossed it in the basket.
Long story short my kids were the only ones at the meeting so the animals never got opened.
The boys finally noticed them in my bag this evening and ripped open the package and quickly grew tired of the poor creatures.
As I was scooping them up I started to really look at them and thought "WOW. These would be AWESOME for Cupcake Hussy!"
I got to work right away. Here is a sneak peak at the first one out of the pack. She's not done yet but I think she looks awesome so far.
If you have a fundraiser for your local zoo or heck, even if you want to just wear her to the park, she's the perfect date! I can't wait to see how she turns out.
