So here’s a picture of my Easter Basket. It’s filled with a “Lost In Translation” DVD and "The Life Aquatic” CD along with various Easter candy (my favorite being Cadbury mini eggs). It's a Bill Murray themed Easter. This afternoon my family went out for Easter brunch. I’ll spare you the details. But only the Mimosas made the whole experience tolerable (I adore champagne before noon). Oh and I tried Peeps for the first time ever today. They’re so vile! I apologize to all of you Peeps fans out there, but I just can’t get past their artificial flavor. But maybe that’s the whole point. They’re so vile that people just can’t help but start a fan club for them.
At one time I thought of myself as a fairly crafty person. Then I discovered websites like craftster.org and getcrafty and various crafty blogs like oh happy day! and One Good Bumblebee and Loobylu and it was then that I realized that I’m only a novice crafter. Since moving back to Bellingham I haven’t been in much of a crafty mood. In Berkeley I was in a knitting phase. Then I got into a crepe paper flowers. Then transitioned into beaded flowers. I even took up calligraphy. Then discovered the new hipster craft - embroidery. I managed to complete a lot of projects while working 50 hours AND taking a Spanish class. But since being in Bellingham I haven’t found any new projects that warranted my excitement. Until now. I’ve discovered felt cakes! Yes I said felt. a_o_i came up with the idea for them and posted instructions. So yesterday I completed my first one. Take a look. Isn’t it divine? Next I’m going to make a chocolate cake with white icing.
