I half baked some red velvet cookies.
I guess these are actually fully baked, just not completed. They are supposed to be sandwich cookies. Since I made them around the same time I made the cupcakes, I decided to freeze them at this stage. At some point I still intend to make the marshmallow/cream cheese frosting that goes between two cookies. You will probably see these again in a week or two.
Recently I won a contest on Heather's blog, Books and Quilts. It was a publisher's give-a-way for two books from the Crafty Chica, Kathy Cano-Murillo.
I am excited to find an author who centers her novels around the lives of women with a passion to create and
am expecting some light entertainment—along the same lines of the culinary mystery novels I love to read. I understand it's a very contemporary story with a heroine who blogs, sells on Etsy, etc. It should be a good read. Thanks again, Heather!
I've spent a few hours of fun and frustration creating these wonky house blocks.
Oh, Boy, judging by this sight, it's not looking like a good year for my lilies and hostas.
It has worked very good for me. But-- and it's a big but-- you MUST spray it on every few days. I have learned to love the task. I keep it in a big sprayer and lug it around every couple of days when my hostas and lilies are bursting from the ground. If it rains, I do it as immediately as I can once the rain stops. It lasts quite a long time because you mix it with water. If the malicious creatures hang around all summer, then I have to continue to spray the hostas all season. I don't bother with the daylilies because I have a lot of them and it would take forever. So if the deer desire daylilies for dinner, they can have them.
