Cookie Love

These cream cheese cookies are my favorite. They are delicious and simple to make. A heart cookie cutter and red sugar sprinkles are not necessary, any shape and color will do. I just thought I'd make them into red hearts for Valentine's Day.

Valentine's Day Card Project

 I have been wanting to use these plastic test tubes from the Martha Stewart Collection at Michael's for Halloween craft projects. I finally had all of the pieces for this special Valentine's Day Card Project. The baker's twine is from Paper Pastries,the heart stickers are from Inspire Lovely, and the "You Are Loved" washi tape is re-used from the gift bag from the Oh, Hello Friend store opening. 

Step 1: Attach tape to twine with tape or glue.
Step 2: Cut twine according to your preferred size.
Step3: Attach twine to cork with a  push pin or staple.
Step 4: Add a heart sticker to the top of the cork.

Riverside Dickens Festival

I was finally able to make it to the Riverside Dickens Festival this year! The lectures were great and I learned a lot about Mr. Dickens and the Victorian era. 

I attened the following lectures:

Dickens 101 - Lectures by Giulia Hoffmann and Ray Crosby – graduate students at UC Riverside, will each give their own version of the “Dickens 101” lecture, an introduction to Dickens’ life and career.

Bounderbies, Blackpools and Gradgrinds: Dickens’ Hard Times and the Social Conditions of mid-Victorian England – Lecture by Prof. Joseph Childers from UC Riverside.

Dickens’ Favorite Punch and Other Libations of His Times – Richard Foss, culinary historian and a published authority on alcoholic beverages.

Update Your Corkboard

After years of having a plain brown cork-board, I decided to change things up and create a design by cutting newspaper to make a stencil and spray paint for the cork-board. To do this yourself, all you need is spray paint, newspaper, a ruler and scissors.
