birthday card w/ earings

Birthday card for my friend, Jennie. I thought chandelier earrings deserved a chandelier card. I got to use my WigJig to make the earrings- it was fun, I haven't pulled it out in a long time.

dessert night

Thursday is free dessert night at the coffee shop. My mom usually makes something, but I had time this week so I made Valentine cupcakes-red velvet cake, cream cheese frosting and white chocolate piped hearts. Yum!

cool jewelry

I ran across this jewelry designer while looking for images and fonts for Matt's new tatoo. I love the combo of modern metal and organic wood. The designer is Amy Bengston and you can find the rest of her line here.

Delia's new dress

I finally finished off this dress I made for Delia. You can't tell from the photos, but the fabric is a baby-whale corduroy- it is so cute! I'm thinking of making a dress out of it for Melissa (one of my dolls I had growing up that now lives in Delia's room), too.

Stuffed Tomatoes

I had these tomatoes at a party over a month ago, and I have literally thought of them every day since. I tried to recreate them on my own with very mayonaise-y results, so I tracked down the recipe. I have yet to try to make them, but they look really easy. I love appetizers- I just wish they didn't take so long to make. I also love bacon. Any recipe with bacon is a winner.

Stuffed Tomatoes (Heidi's)
3/4 cup mayo
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp basil
10 oz bacon, cooked crisp & crumbled
2 pints cherry tomatoes, insides scooped out
Mix first 5 ingredients. Stuff tomatoes. Slice a bit off bottoms to keep them from rolling on the platter.

Project Runway

Everytime I watch Project Runway I am inspired to pull out my machine and try something new, but I still haven't found the time, so just watching the show is meeting some sort of fashion need for me. This season I'm rooting for Jillian to win (now that Victorya and Kit are gone.) She wasn't my favorite at the beginning of the season, but the jacket she made a couple of weeks ago (not the jean jacket) was stunning. If only Tim Gunn would come and make over my wardrobe!
