Holy moly, it’s June mid-June!

Here are a few things that I’ve been up to lately…

Still collecting some of the most beautiful art, craft, and sewing supplies. As usual, my studio is one crazy mess today, but no one can tell through my macro lens.


Baking…lots and lots of baking. Pictured on top are Wookiee Cookies that I baked up to make my Star Wars fan happy. They are adapted from a recipe found in the Star Wars CookBook –one of the cutest cookbooks I’ve ever seen.

The glazed citrus doodles, pictured below the Wookiee Cookies, are more my speed. These doodles are tart, chewy, and delicious. They are not very heavy, making them perfect for spring and summer. Plus, I love the smell of lemon zest that filled my kitchen while I was making these. I did have a heavy hand with the icing on my first batches, so my last dozen are sans the icing goodness. However, they are still very good! I got this recipe from Everyday Food, one of my very favorite magazines.


We’ve been working tirelessly on our yard. Last year we didn’t have time, so this summer its been our goal to have a pretty and functional yard. I saw this cute idea in someone’s front yard–its an old boat filled with flowers. I’m thinking I might try to do this on a much smaller scale, using some of my favorite herbs.


Last, I’ve been spending all of my free time at the beach. The weather has been gorgeous and I’ve been trying my best to soak it all in.

Hope you are taking the time to enjoy this fun and relaxing season!
