Creativity Corner

This week I have been pretty motivated.  In all honesty, I think its the fact that I have a lot less 'other' things to do.  I mean I work two part time jobs and serve at church a lot but with my previous allotted studying/schoolwork time now free & empty, (now that I am officially a grad - yay!) I decided to put that "extra" time to good use!  Hence my long sought after "craft business!"  It is budding & boy is it blooming.  Any extra time I have, I am creating or organizing.  Last week my head was a little messy so it was mostly the creative juices flowin' but this week it has been organizational city and it feels good!  Two days ago I redid my kitchen pantry (much needed) & yesterday I organized my bathroom closet (much needed again).  Today, was my favorite outcome of all - a nifty little spot for all my bedazzled and bejeweled crafts!  This morning a friend & I went thrifting at "Nearly New" and with treasures in hand, I felt myself feeling inspired to organize my new found inspirations!  So here's a little tidbit of my DIY project: how I did it, how it came out, and  please tell me what you think!  Enjoy! I think it came out pretty cute. 
(And yes, I know I'm a dork, but I'm pretty excited for this little change!)

INDIE CRAFT SHOW


Hello everyone!  Just wanted to inform you of an upcoming event that I am going to be attending/participating in: the Indie Craft Show of 2010.  It is a culmination of all things handmade, vintage, or just darn cute.  If you live in the good ole' sunshine state, be sure to stop by - you won't be disappointed to say the least.  I am honored to be sharing my own shabby chic creations and hope you will come by and support myself and other local artists/crafters (a few of which I happen to know and love!)  
Here's a few pictures of what you can expect to see at my table. 
 Enjoy!

Feelin' French

So tonight's menu consisted of the traditional teriyaki chicken skewers & Publix's fantastic rice pilaf.  It's a staple around our house, but I decided to mix things up a little for dessert, which in all honesty, I do solely for Pete.  I'm not a big dessert fan, lover of ice cream, or anything of the sort, but I do enjoying catering to my husbands sweet tooth, as well as trying my hand at the ole mixer every once in a while.  I was already at the grocery store when I spotted this little recipe card and thought it looked particularly tantalizing.   Now I'll admit, husband thought the greek yogurt on top didn't quite make the cut, but substitute that with some homemade whipped cream or maybe a little powdered sugar and you've got yourself a winner my friend!  Plus, the little buttery sweet delights look so gourmet you'll have your friends thinking you are a regular Betty Crocker- little will they know it only takes about 15 minutes to complete from start to finish.  Enjoy and indulge!  (Find ingredients & recipe by clicking on the 'recipe card' link)
