Have you had any snow? There was a little in Farnham on Monday morning, but thats long since gone!
Sooo....I haven't been around much lately...it turns out that the new house is taking up loads of my time! I have also been spending a ridiculous amount of time in the kitchen...but more about that later!!
I wanted to share with you a fab podcast that I've discovered recently. I've just got into podcasts thanks to my sister...she'd always said I should give them a go, so I decided to search iTunes looking for something that took my fancy. Tha'ts where I stumbled across Joy The Baker...which is made up of Joy and Tracy...two very funny and very friendly ladies from America. There is a new podcast each week and they basically talk about anything and everything, but they are soooo funny that I always end up laughing out loud (I have to be careful where I listen)! They also both have their own blogs featuring their fab recipes and gorgeous photos. If you get the chance and fancy a giggle you should check them out...you can download the podcasts from iTunes or from the HomeFries website!
Soooo....what have I made today I hear you ask....well I was asked by a friend to make a Birthday card for someone who loves baking. I decided to give the stamps a rest and do some paper crafting for this card...in fact I got so carried away and decided to make a matching bookmark too!!
I love a pink and brown colour combo, its sooooo pretty! I've created my mini aprons from a selection of papers and some pretty pink ribbon. The sentiments have been created on my computer.
I'd like to enter these creations in the following challenges:
Cupcake Craft Challenge - anything but a card
Pop by both these blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created!
Soooo...that's the crafting...what about the baking??
Well, I have been a busy bee recently....I have made my own bread rolls....
I have discovered that I LOVE baking bread....something about the kneading is very theraputic...plus you get yummy bread at the end!!
I have also made my own baked beans.....
Admittedly this took much longer than going to the cupboard and opening a can, but it was worth the wait...these beans are seriously tasty!!
Plus there have been some sweet treats....
Yes it's a melt in the middle pot of gooey chocolate! Yummy!
And of course there had to be some cupcakes somewhere!! These are yummy lemon and vanilla....hmmmm!
Thanks for popping by today,
