Cake Cravings There is a hilarious scene in an episode of Sex and the City where Miranda makes herself a homemade chocolate cake.

ikat sac: faire un sac: Epilogue Last chapter in the epic Make A Bag series! And by "epic", I don't mean "longer than is sane", although that may be true, too. I mean "extolling her heroic attempts to write posts about fabric sacks while the rest of the house fell apart around her and everyone ate takeout pizza and oh, while she was also packing the entire family's summer wardrobe and enough gifts for half the civilized world in preparation for her trip to Singapore to see family, where she's now been soaking up the sun for the past 8 days already but nobody knew because she didn't even have the time to blog about it." Yep - epic. So... let's finish off with some questions that I think you might have.

What shall we do with the Shrunken Sweater Posted by on torsdag, december 29, 2011 · Leave a Comment For me the days prior to New Years always seem full of inspired thoughts on the potential greatness of next year.

Joy the Baker — I feel like I’m grasping tight to the things around me these days. I’m probably the first to shrug off the change of season, the change of moving cities, and the change of traveling a ton as no big deal…. but it all adds up to matter and I have to admit I feel a little crazy in the brain.
