Good News! I Finished My Round Of Antibiotics, Now I Can Drink Again!

Hello, I’m alive! (…-ish) So I finished my last dose of antibiotics last night! That’s a week of antibiotics!¬†Phew!¬† You may recall that last week (when this picture was taken) I was pretty much dying of bronchitis and sinusitis. Well, I can breathe now! I’m still having WILD fever dreams, but I’ve been too busy…

T-Shirt to Wall Art DIY

Here’s a handy trick:  check your pulse.  If you have one, chances are you also have a favourite T-shirt! When I was in middle school, and my dad would go to conferences in other cities, he would bring back T-shirts for me.  Two of the absolute prettiest were hand-painted shirts from New Orleans, Louisiana.  I’ve…

Chocolate Chippuccino Ice Cream

As I lay awake in bed at night, I think of ice cream recipes to try.  I’m not kidding. This one came to me as I woke from a blissful and restful slumber one Sunday morning.  I thought, “How could I make the ultimate coffee flavored ice cream?” The lineup: 1 pint of heavy cream…

To Cap It Off

When the weather gets colder, it’s time for hats!  Looking good in hats is a special talent of mine (don’t scoff – it takes a lot of work to pull off a good hat!) and on top of that (heh, hat pun?) hats serve the secondary purpose of disguising the fact that you’ve been too…

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream

I call this sundae, “Gluten-Free To Be You And Me.” For my second experiment with homemade ice cream, I wanted to make a coffee ice cream that would taste like the flavoured coffee I loved getting from Tom’s.  I used half a batch of ice cream base, plus 1/2oz of cold brew coffee concentrate, roughly…

Balsamic Berry Brownie Bonanza

You guys you guys you guys.  My life has been changed forever. I have learned how to make my own ice cream. Now, you know how I hate to cook, but trust me, this is so easy, even I don’t hate it.  And I’m barely competent enough to boil water.  And that’s only so I…

FEELING:  Stoked, excited, and sooooo happy!  My big vacation was a lot of fun, I’m glad to have gotten away, but I’m also so happy to get back!  My life lately is so surreal and wonderful. WATCHING: I’m falling behind on Sailor Moon because I’m just a bit too busy for TV these days! LISTENING…

Currently…in July 2014

FEELING:  Dotty and dopey and dripping with dandyness!  Sunny days are here at last and I’m making the most of it, stretching my legs on the sidewalks and giving flight to my fancies.  I’m taking strolls and seeing sights so sweet it’s like my heart could burst.  WATCHING: Monday Night is still Hulu night as…

Currently…in June 2014

FEELING:  What a change from last month!  Suddenly I feel inspired and accomplished.  My plan to do a ton of little creative projects has meant I’m now having more and better ideas.  I feel like I’m back to my creative self.  WATCHING: Now that I’ve finished Attack on Titan, I’m loving Sailor Moon on Hulu!…

T-Shirt to Tied Tank Tutorial

I love destroying t-shirts.  Perhaps the anarchist in me loves to see the classic staple brought to its knees?  Whatever.  In any rate, this is a quick and easy way to take a normal blah t-shirt to something a little edgier!  Seriously, it is SO easy, I doubt it took me ten minutes to do…

Flowers In Your Hair

When the weather gets warmer, my cold, cold heart warms up and I start to want to be, dare I say it, girly again?  And nothing says spring in bloom and life renewing itself like spending a sunny day on your couch re-watching Louie on Netflix while working on a crafting project.  Like ya do….
