  • Cooking is art.

    I miss Breaking Bad. It's been more than a week, and I am still thinking about it. There has rarely been a show that I will actually watch live (instead, I prefer sleeping and DVRing.) I'm happy it ended when it did. I want to remember it as awesome as it was, instead of having it completely disappoint me like Dexter. A lumberjack? Really?

    Anyway, I re-watched season 1, episode 1, and damn, the dialog is so great. When I heard Jesse defending his Meth recipe to Mr. White, I knew I needed this quote for my kitchen. "Cooking is art. And the shit I cook is the bomb so don't be telling me." I searched all over the web, and on Etsy, but the damn quote didn't exist on anything so I had to make it happen. I had this fabric made because I am planning a line of toss pillows (get it, tossing plates? how ironic.)  Anyway, I used one of my fabric plates to try my hand at embroidery. Look. I am a plate breaker, not an embroiderer, so please forgive my stitch, but I am pretty proud of the outcome.

    So proud (and mildly addicted) that I instantly had to make another one. This time with a favorite Julia Child quote "The only time to eat diet food is while you're waiting for the steak to cook." The woman was brilliant and full of so many great quotes, I'm sure there will be more. And, seriously, how cute is the damn carrot?

    Just wanted to check in and show you some things I've been working on. Will be adding new ornaments to the shop soon. Also, just updated my holiday craft show schedule for this year. Will be making an appearance in Pittsburgh for Handmade Arcade and Baltimore for Holiday Heap. Hope to see you there! Will have lots of new work.

    If you have a custom order to get to me, I'd love to start it as soon as possible.
