Crocodile Crochet Goodness

I made this crochet crocodile from the great kanlayanee on etsy during our trip. I love him so much! Although his teeth are rather large... he must be the dentist's best friend. I also made this flower from an old vogue knitting magazine.

Vintage Treasures

I was lucky enough to find this sweet little vintage doll while on vacation. She is so wonderful!
I also found this old millinery rose which I plan on making into a pin. Both great finds!

Lovely Vacation

This is the dock where we fished.

Beautiful Texas wildflowers that we saw along the road.

We had a wonderful time cooking out and making s'mores!! Such fun...

Cows grazing along the road.
The trip was a smash! We spent our time fishing, swimming, and sightseeing. The weather was scorching hot as it usually is in Texas, but it was bearable thanks to the cool water and air conditioner. I got to spend quality time with my family which was great. The afternoons were spent lazily reading or crocheting. All in all it was great fun!!

My Yellow Room

These are some pictures of my room in all its yellow glory. I love the color! It has a tendency to glow in the sun which makes me very happy. Our two cats Sheila and Leonardo, like my window and bed a bit too much...

Cooking in the Kitchen

Yesterday, I baked yummy cookies called Melt Aways with my sister! They are sooo good... and really easy to make and they literally melt away in your mouth. See the recipe at the bottom!
Melt Aways Recipe
1/2 lb butter
3/4 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 cup flour
note: may want to double the batch
Beat butter. Add cornstarch, flour, sugar, and beat until creamy. Put wax paper on cookie sheet and drop cookies onto it (cookies are best when made bite sized). Bake 12 min. in 350 degrees oven. When cookies are cool, frost with icing.
3 oz cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
food coloring
Mix together creamcheese, vanilla, powdered sugar, and food coloring until creamy. Frost cookies, and serve.

My Agenda

Throughout high school I always drew in and collaged all of my agendas. This is the one I liked the most and did the most in. It was so boring before I started decorating it. Up top is the front cover.
Here are some pages I doodled on!

P.S. If you click on the pictures you can see it bigger!

Werner the Dachshund

One of our sweet dogs Werner (pronouced Verner), decided to help me out with my photo shoot of my dolls...


My sister and I were bored at the table one day and out of a crazy idea, started doodling on bananas.
