the art of neglect... and a pre-holiday sale!

>> Saturday, November 8, 2014

so i've been quite neglectful of this blog and i'm sort of embarrassed.  i look back at past posts and like seeing where i've been and what was inspiring.  so now, i am posting again - admittedly, because i'd like to show off some of the things i've been working on in the rare spare moments i've had between the family, The Walking Dead, and the day job. 

gifted to the stylist of "BONES" - not sure if they'll use it, but i sure love mine!

fingers crossed - these babies were chosen for an unnamed TNT network show - i'll let you know when the episode airs!

the latest incarnation of my fidget rings - 'jewelry for anxious people' as dubbed by my friend Anne-Marie from 'do not faint'
i've been working on expanding my "fidget" jewelry.  i've had some amazingly positive feedback from customers who have said that their fidget rings from my shop have worked better than any therapy or medication to help them with their symptoms.  seriously - it makes everything - EVERYTHING - worth it and fuels me all the more to keep making them.

and of course, in celebration of the holidays, from today until December 1st, 2014, everything in my shop is 15% off with the coupon code "NOVEMBER15"!  it's not to early to start your holiday shopping!!!!!


what makes you beautiful.

breakfast muffin.

>> Sunday, March 16, 2014

lucky for me, I have had the whole March Break off with the girls, which means lots of crafty goodness.  which includes cooking.  in between batches of chocolate chip cookies, I macgyver'ed the sausage pancake muffin recipe that S from work was tempting me with all week.  the recipe S used is here and is much more complicated that I have time for, but she did make it and she said they were wonderful.  I adjusted it for me and here it is for you to try.  it's probably the quickest and easiest recipe EVER. seriously.  breakfast bliss in a muffin cup.

you will need:

- pancake mix and whatever the box asks you to use - water, milk, eggs, etc.  the mix I used only asked for water.
- precooked and cooled breakfast sausages (I used breakfast leftovers)
- shredded cheddar cheese

mix up enough pancake batter for the amount of muffins you want to make.  cut up the breakfast sausage into bits and insert into the batter.  sprinkle the cheese on top.  bake at 350 degrees till the batter is set and the tops of the muffins are golden brown and the cheese melted.

S says to pour syrup on the tops before you eat them but I prefer mine without.  I am sure bacon or peameal or leftover ham or maybe even smoked turkey would work just as well.

you're welcome.  seriously. 

(I think I've gained 5 pounds.)

oh, christina perri. how did I miss this one? being a former "twilight" fan (I don't know if it's because I'm now an old lady but the glitter has worn off) I will admit that I fell under the spell of ms. perri's 'a thousand years'. however, this song - made even better with the addition of the fabulous jason mraz - is the perfect blend of melancholy, heartbreak and yearning. yeah. sappy, I know. chalk it up to little sleep, overwork, and winter blues, perhaps? too bad.
