You guys know how I like to number things, right? Well today is no exception!
1. Have you all heard of mug rug madness week yet?
The lovely Erin of twomoreseconds is putting this event together that will happen the last 10 days of March. She has asked a few bloggers to participate by making a mug rug, writing a tutorial and then giving the mug rug away.
I'll be posting a tutorial on making my mug rug "under the umbrella" on March 28th and will be giving this little guy away! It's based on a wonderful vision I have of walking around under an umbrella on a dark, rainy day. And under the umbrella, the sky is blue, the birds are singing and the posies are blooming.
2. I've had a change of plans with the cameo project. It just wasn't coming together as planned (read this: my cameos were looking like cavemen because this girl is a lot of things, but she ain't no artist!) and after muuuuuuch turmoil, I decided to go with some images that weren't people and now I'm happy again. After talking it through with my friend Tara, she helped me to realize I should focus on what I'm good at and people are not it!! So thank-you Tara, and for all of you, you'll be very happy that I had that convo with her! The project is coming along very nicely and I can't wait to show you, so check back next Wednesday for a lovely tutorial and a fab giveaway from the guys and gals over at Saral! (And thanks Ben for being so patient with me!)
2 1/2. You've GOT to try one of these!!! (sorry Tara, I couldn't wait to share the news)
What is it? I'm glad you asked! Only one of the best things I've ever had and since having one two weeks ago at a soda fountain while out shopping for fabric with two wonderful friends, I've craved them daily!
It's a vanilla creme Dr. Pepper. And for you Dr. Pepper fans out there, here's the recipe I came up with:
VANILLA CREME DR. PEPPER
16 oz. glass, fill 1/2 with ice
Fill 1/3 with 1% milk
1.5 pumps of starbucks vanilla syrup
Fill remaining 2/3 with Dr. Pepper
It's like having a float without all the calories! Now go! Make one for yourself!
Happy Weekend to you!
