Okay, I didn't really go on vacation. I just did other things than blog for the past few weeks. I was busy reading a few books like this one and this one. I highly recommend both because they so insightful and totally captivating at the same time. I also started this one and have this one in the wings waiting for me by my bedside table. I also started to get my family's diet back in order. We all started eating junk this winter and we needed a make over. So - new recipes (actually, I am just trying to cook more) and new groceries. I (along with the help of a friend) found the BEST chocolate cookie recipe ever. It takes time and it takes a few ingredients that might not be on hand, but the end results are pure heaven. Hence, the diet makeover. They will just have to be for special occasions. I cleaned my craft room upstairs that was so messy all winter long that I rarely (barley) went up there. You couldn't see the floor because my husband had pulled out everything from storage to re insulate it and make it warmer. He finally finished that last weekend (right as it started to warm up) and now, I can see the floor and get to my sewing machine.
And finally, I did a bit of soldering. Check out the results here and in the shop. I found some great graphics and am in the process of going through some things I have collected myself to come up with more. If there is ever anything you see that you want to customize (your initial, a different picture on the back, etc.) just convo me on etsy or email me and I can make it.
