Weekend craft

This weekend I decided to make a craft.  I got some ideas from searching Etsy.. and this is what I came up with. 

First... I cut out a bunch of little circles of different double sided paper...
Then I simply cut them all halfway down the center, put two circles together, and there we go.. I have my own homemade garland.

Etsy... you are so good to me.  

I seriously cannot get enough of this incredible site.  Hour upon hour is spent looking through the creative and beautiful projects of sellers around the world.  Here are some of my recent favourites...

I have discovered over the past few months how much I love baking.  Yes, I work at a bakery.. and so I had better love baking, but I think it goes beyond that.  I love the actual labour that goes into it, and that is it truly a labour of love.  Kneading, rolling, boiling, sifting, measuring... making everything exact.  I have never been a perfectionist in anything in my life.. but I am starting to realize how perfect I want absolutely everything to turn out as I pull things out of the oven or off the stove.  It is incredibly satisfying.  I want to bake you sweet and delicious treats, so come to my house and I will do it for you.  Or someday, maybe you can come to my own bakery where you can feast your eyes on many, many tasty bites.
