A Fresh Start

So I've realized that I abandoned my personal blog long enough and that I need to do more than vent/complain on here, and actually post something of substance. I've been inspired by Deanna Rio and her blog. I discovered Deanna from YouTube and her makeup tutorials, but she is a fellow creative soul and I'm finding a lot of fun ideas from her.Here's what going on in my life:

-I'm cooking this chili right now, except I used ground beef.

-I just bought Cake Love because I need to start baking more from scratch. Especially for my upcoming Wilton cake decorating class (part2)!

-I'm reading Freedom by Jonathan Franzen. In my
quest to be more green (both environmentally and monetarily!) I'm utilizing my library card, and trying not to rack up too many late fees! The book is good, but very dense. I'm only about 2/3 of the way through it.

-I'm going to make this wreath this week. I have the coffee filters, I just need the styrofoam base. I may use the stapler method.

-I'm making Jason another one of these aprons because he loves the first one so much. I have fabric with little monsters on it and another one wi
th owls. He puts it on whenever we cook or bake, it's too cute for words.
That's about it for the week, yay for 4-day work weeks!

Every six months?

Yeah so it seems like I only am able to post something every six months or so on here. That's kind of shitty. I've started another blog that will cover my ongoing obsession with makeup. Maybe I have a better shot at that one. We'll see.

Happy New Year...not so far

My favorite cat is dying.
I feel disgusting.
I want to eat myself into a coma.
My house is a mess.
The weather is cold and shitty.
Something better has to happen soon.
