Some of you may have noticed my baking blog I listed on the side bar. Meet Bakerella. I may not know her and just stalk her blog but she and I have a something in common. We both like to bake. :) So I pretended to be her this week...in preparation for Gin's shower, of course. Here is my version of her Red Velvet Cake Balls.

I sacrificed one for a picture:

I test out on my coworkers:

Muted Fruit

I'm back in the game and feeling 100%. I never thought I would apprecaite the smell of oil. But it's nice. It's nice to be able to breathe. Time to finish some projects. I am going to touch this up some tomorrow after it sits.

And then when I'm done...it's time to tackle this....which scares me.

Ready for Spring

Today is amazing weather! It makes me realize how ready I will be for Spring. I took advantage of the opportunity and opened the windows to let the oil smells "air out."

I have done NO painting lately due to a TERRIBLE cold. Did I mention it is terrible? But that is ok. At least it waited till I was home from this:

I guess that is another reason I haven't been painting. I took many nighttime light pictures to use for paintings, though. WHEN I finish all I have started!

Off to the outdoors!
