My weekends have been a blur this year and I’ve spent much of my time being wonderfully creative: One retreat spent figuring out whether digital photo album design is my direction, another, helping friends bottle a barrel of wine.
However, last weekend, I created stuff!
My client requested colorful cards for her annual birthday set. I designed them with a thoughtful stamp and silk flowers. My process was to cut the paper and stamp, then coordinate flowers and assemble, finishing with a blingy brad for sparkle. By the time I’d finished 50, I had a vibrant garden on my desk!
Don’t be an April Fool, eat those tasty greens!
Greens, Eggs & Ham (aka: Breakfast by Dr Seuss)
Saute chopped clove of garlic with a handful of shiitake mushrooms in oil of choice for a couple minutes, then add 1/2 cup of black beans and 1 cup of chopped kale/spinach/mustard greens etc. Stir together then make a well in center, add a bit of butter and crack an egg or two to fry in the center. Sprinkle chopped ham and avocado and cover to steam for a couple minutes depending on how done you like your eggs. This serves one, adjust or duplicate as necessary. Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
I know, I know.
It’s been too long. 🙁
With the rush of the holiday season almost over, gatherings & baking my favorite cookies, I’m breathing a sigh of another year gone by.
Thought I would end the year on a positive note, though.
And for the carnivores out there, I give you BACON!
