Cards, bookmarks, baking and a podcast!

Hello there....I hope you are keeping warm in this chilly weather!

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,
Wedgie xxx
