It's a picture post!
I have been a slacker and not posted in a very long time. Here are some photographs detaling our latest adventures, with minimal words to fill you in. Enjoy.
Megan cam down for the weekend to hang out, and we carved pumpkins! Somehow, none of us decided to carve anything remotely typical jackolantern-y this year.
Jesse carved leaves!
Megan carved a sunshine!
And then.....there was baking. Yummy yummy lava baby cakes (or so my cookbook calls them!). I altered the recipe a little bit so I think I might be posting that own its on here soon...basically, it is a chocolate batter with chocolate ganache in the center that melts when you bake it and gushes out when you eat it, topped with juicy fresh strawberries and a little (or a lot) of powdered sugar! MMMM!!!
Witness the gooey yummy inside.
And then came the Halloween festivities! I dressed up as a doll and Jesse dressed up as a toy soldier.
We were very sweet animated inanimate objects. (p.s. I made our costumes. Yes I am bursting with pride about it, thanks for asking :D)
In other news, I'm been procraftinating lately!
I just made that word up. It sounds wrong. I meant, I've been crafting instead of doing homework lately, i.e. procrastinating-crafting....procraftinating.....yeah, that one doesn't need to catch on. Anyways....
I'm a little obsessed with these tear drop shapes lately. I draw them all over my notes, filled in, outlined in thick black lines, cascading, grouped, all over the place. And I finally realized: I can create them in a three dimensional medium! The always useful toilet paper roll strikes again!
(I TOLD you I was going to use those, remember? I didn't lie!)
In other news, we did laundry this weekend (yes, you may breathe a sigh of relief, we are not walking around in stinky clothes!) and upon setting the clean laundry in front of me to fold (p.s. mom I hate doing the laundry and putting it away but I LOVE folding it. weird huh?) I saw the following lovely colorful sight:
I like the cool wood grain look it has. Pretty huh?
Alright folks, that's it! By the way, if you read this far, would you leave a comment? I get a lot of visitors (I spy on you spying on me, see?) but never any comments! It would be nice to know who is reading. Thanks!
