She’s got a lot going on.

I was eagerly awaiting two things in the mail: my doughnut cookbook, and my Brazil Butt Lift DVDs. Do these seem counter productive to anyone else? At the end of last week they finally arrived! I’m gonna give you a clue as to which one I tried out first:

everything - 8

And now that the cat’s out of the bag, I will just say doughnuts are proving much trickier than I anticipated and it’s really ticking me off. My french crullers where such a dismal disappointment I can’t even blog about them. DAMN YOU DOUGHNUTS! How can something that seems so right keep turning out so wrong!

I’ve also been working on some new patterns, and finishing ones I started a while ago. Craft Lake City WATCH OUT! This penguin’s donning leather.

everything - 4

everything - 5

everything - 2

everything - 3

I’ve also completely reorganized my living room, creating room for a craft nook for things like this (more pictures of my transformation to come soon):

everything - 7

This has freed up a lot of floor space. And Ginger, at 10 months, has finally decided she’s interested in crawling. Let’s all hope her mother taking over all of the available floor space with felt, leather, fabric and fringe didn’t contribute to her late start.

everything - 6

So I guess that’s not really THAT much. But it just felt like I had a lot to tell you. I have even MORE to tell you. But we must wait until the time is right.

Ok! I hope you had a wonderfully lazy, or stressfully productive weekend. But nothing in between. Because that would just be silly.

I’m gonna go work on my Brazil Butt Lift.
