Christmas Pudding Biscuits.

This past weekend I participated in my first ever “Cookie Swap”. It turns out that we aren’t the only people who have never participated in a cookie swap, as people had to be herded away from the cookie tables as they tried to eat all the cookies instead of taking them home. Anyhow, for my […]

Flying Ducks

Lately we have been sidetracked by trying to move out of our apartment and into a real house. Unfortunately all the places we have seen either had some sort of weird landlord situation, was next to the freeway, small and/or gross, or all of the above. Just as we had lost the will to keep […]

My Own Personal Jane Austen Hero.

So…. Finally all the i’s have been dotted, t’s have been crossed, exams passed, graduation attended…. (Apparently this is a Swedish graduation tradition/thing – thankfully they were unable to find a tractor) ……and your girl here is now qualified to practice as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist in California! Studying for all those tests and exams […]

Spiced Cheese Scones

Yes, I know. It has been a while. I blame a multitude of things including another pottery course, studying, starting to make Mr M a Regency outfit for September, studying, and the continuing absence of my baking mojo. Anyhow, a couple of weeks ago I felt the sudden urge for baking, so whipped up some […]

Apple Anniversary Bowl

A year ago I was bridesmaid for one of my close friends. They got married on an old cider farm in Somerset, and were coming out to California for a visit for their one year Anniversary. I was looking for something nice for a gift, and came across a no longer available item on Etsy. […]

Almond Thumbprint Cookies

My baking mojo has been lacking lately. I think this is part because I have been: a)busy; b) trying not to eat as much; and c) disappointed with the results because of my crappy crappy oven. #firstworldproblems Anyway, yesterday I felt the urge to bake, and also wanted to use up some of the random […]

Nerd Crafts: Erythrocyte (Red Blood Cell) Earrings

I know. I disappeared into an abyss. (Otherwise known as having two lots of visitors, resuming school, and general life.) I have been working on a little cross stitch that is almost complete, and Mr M and I signed up for another pottery class (slip decoration and some more wheel work – we need more […]

6 weeks of pottery classes

Over the past couple of months, Mr M and I have been attending a 6 week beginner wheel pottery class at Higher Fire Clayspace and Gallery in San Jose. This was mainly sparked by watching the Great Pottery Throw Down and thinking that it looked like fun, and as Mr M also thought so, I leaped […]

Seedy Rolls

Like I have always done throughout my academic life (except the final year of my degree where I was totally on top of things), I have been getting behind on my studies. Cue playing catch up over the past few weeks, trying to make sure all my rotation exams and evaluations etc. are done before […]

Pottery Aprons

Did anyone else watch the Great Pottery Throw Down? I am sure I am not alone in watching it and think “That looks like fun!” A bigger surprise was that Mr M agreed with me, so I seized upon the opportunity to get him involved in something creative, and looked for classes available in our […]
