I wanted to share this post yesterday but something is going on in the interwebs that made it impossible to get my WordPress dashboard to load until now. Oh well, such is life. Continue reading
I love to do things with my hands other than type and click. In the kitchen, I love to crack eggs, whisk brownie batter, knead bread, etc. When it comes to crafting, I love to cut paper, use rubber stamps, and tape things together.
It would be great to be able to buy fun supplies all of the time and have a well stocked arsenal, but that just can’t happen. I do my best to make do with what I have on hand- some blank kraft paper cards + envelopes, a pack of construction paper from Target, a few rolls of washi tape, some stamps, plenty of Sharpies… things like that.
So, as long as you have a few pieces of construction paper, a pair of scissors, and a roll of tape (or glue), you can make this card! Continue reading
Birthdays are the best, and I love celebrating my friends’ birthdays as much as my own.

I’ve been dabbling ever-so-slightly in gluten-free baking lately, as a result of my recent decision to eliminate as much gluten as possible from my diet. I know there’s really no such thing as an almost gluten-free diet, and I can certainly tolerate gluten, but I simply feel better and more energetic on the days that I don’t consume any. So, as often as possible, I avoid it.
My most recent baking experiment was with banana bread. I even made my own coconut flour for it, which was a rewarding but slightly time consuming process. I enjoyed it though, and the bread turned out very good.
Today I thought I’d show you a quick photoshop tutorial- how to put a slanted photo on a white background. I love to do this with photos for my computer’s desktop, because it’s a bit more interesting than just using a plain photo. Once you get the hang of the process, it’s really easy to do.
