sweet...

i have been fulfilling some cravings lately...
while browsing through one of my favorite magazines, victoria, i came across a recipe for lemon butter cookies. mmm...
had to try 'em out!



the combination of lemon zest, toasted ground almonds and, well, lots of butter and sugar was heavenly. but what i didn't count on was how painful it would be to stand there and roll out the dough. sheesh. my back, legs and pregnant belly were really hating me.



and for my next sweet craving, it comes in the form of eye candy. as i've mentioned, i'm over the moon for art journaling, scrapbooking, or any form of paper play. so i've been pouring over this book and magazine getting totally inspired!

so many lovely sweet treats and it's not even february yet! fabulous.

I have gotten into art journaling recently too. I find it very theraputic. Check out the book "An Illustrated Life" Danny Gregory" Its a little different. More journals art than paper craft but beautiful illustrations.
Another great one for step by step technique "Teach Yourself Visually. Collage & Altered Art."

Keep on being creative,
