St. Pat's Cupcakes

Found the recipe for Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes via the Brown-Eyed Baker (just one of many recipes I aim to try from her blog) on the morning of St. Pat's and rushed to the grocery store on my lunch break and managed to bake one pan of the cupcakes before going back to work.

Finished the frosting after work (in my old school, estate sale find stand mixer) and they were the perfect way to start my St. Patty's celebration. Yum, yum, YUM.

Word of warning, though, that frosting is quite stout. Beware eating them on an empty stomach! Haha!

Crochet Critters

It all started with a pattern I found on Ravelry - if you are a crocheter or knitter, you MUST check out that site, it is FANtastic - and I was hooked. (hahaha, hooked! get it!?)

I made a few more patterns from the Lion Brand arsenal of free stuff, and then I started to make my own little critters. And now, well, now I just can't stop! Most of my creations come from requests that friends and family have made. Take a look!

Please check out me out on etsy, and if there's a critter that you're dying to have, please ask!!


I've been MIA from the blogosphere for MONTHS. Yikes.

To start things off - I've entered this photo into the iheartfaces weekly photo contest. This week's theme is Sun Flare.

Stay tuned for a post this afternoon. I've been crocheting my little hands off lately and boy do I have some stuff to show you!!
