Macarons!

I made macarons today for the first time. Having never made them or even tasted one before I was a little worried they wouldn’t turn out. But they did! I used Sprinklebakes recipe. It was easy to follow and fun to make.

Cake!

I just took these little tea cakes out of the oven.

The recipe was quite intensive, what with grinding and toasting almonds and browning butter and such. So I’m a little disappointed they didn’t turn out right. They’re not bad, just a little chewier than they should be. Probably over mixed.

This cake was delicious! I whipped it up quick for a friends farewell party. It went over very well.

Hanphibian Shot First!

I painted Hanphibian!

It’s Han Solo from Star Wars as an amphibian! He’s slimy, he’s green and he shot first!!!

Oh and here is some Slug Love just for you:

Unfortunately the green one looks more queasy then anything else…

New Header!

Crafty Goodness

H!

Well last Friday I went garage saleing again. Man, it’s addicting. We found the best garage sale ever! I was full of crafty goodness.

 I got this 26 craft book set from the 70’s and a couple others.

 We found this set of craft cards at the same sale, there’s some really strange stuff in it.

 I also found this cake pan set for mini tiered cakes. I have been wanting to make a tiered cake for a while, and now I can make a super cute tiny one! I found a small cabinet at another garage sale. It’s really old and simple, but it’s solid and I am going to paint it and maybe? glass mosaic the top. I got it for a doller. I can’t go wrong with that price!

I have been embroidering like crazy lately. I get into crafty moods where I have to do one thing. Now it is embrodery, then I will get bored with it and do something else. It’s weird, but I always come back sooner or later. Here’s a pillow cover I made.

Here’s a couple of pictures of my tendency to arrange thing in order of color. The rainbow of colors really appeals to me for some reason.  Here are my seed beads that I put up on the wall recently and some buttons from my collections. Just coz they look nice.

 

Have lovely day! (I better go to bed, it’s 1:30am and I have to go to work in the morning…)  

 

Too long

Hi!

It’s been forever! Wow I sure have been busy, busy. So the cupcakes did not happen, but that’s ok. I did sew a couple of pincusions and a shirt I finished just today. Now if I could just find my camera…
