Goodbye, Old Look!

At one point I updated the look of my blog right around Christmas break each year.  It just felt like the right thing to do.  Last year, that didn't happen.  I have been left with my lovely, crochet-laden, somewhat surrealist, definitely L A R G E blog header.

Out with the old!

Super Excited for Candy Bark for the Holidays!

It has come around to that time of the year again when I decide to make a holiday candy!  This is super-exciting because I just love the idea that I can actually cook something.  I'm kind of a clutz in the kitchen...  However, last year my holiday fudge came out wonderfully (at least one of the times that I did it)!

In fact, last year is the time when I got excited about baking and all the little things I could make.  Not surprisingly, this came from a crafting perspective.  I was in a Craft Store and there they have an amazing collection of cake decorating supplies.  I LOVE the idea of decorating cake pops, or even molding candy lollipops... I started getting all kinds of ideas!

I am on the verge of something big here.  I have many ideas percolating and developing.
I can't wait to share them with all of you in's new iteration.

Unfortunately, I do have to wait because it's just me over here doing my thing.  I wanted to let everyone know that I have been blogging for Rachel over at

Holiday Happiness!

Hello!  I am just popping in to say how excited I am about the upcoming holidays!  Now that Thanksgiving and Haunukkah have passed, we can count down the days until Christmas on the Advent calendar.

I have been gathering presents and planning my holiday baking for the first time.  Fudge.  Yup.  My first batch was heavenly.  Maybe it was beginner's luck because my next two batches weren't so much.  They were okay, but not quite to the level of that first batch.  I will make my next batch in time for the holiday party this weekend.  Wish me luck!

Are you decorating for the season?  I have made a few preliminary attempts, especially because I now live in very sunny Florida where each season is pretty darned hot.  To my northern body it still feels like summer here!

So good to reconnect with you.  Please share your holiday prep plans!! More soon!

I Would Fly There If I Could: Lift Ev'ry Voice Photography Show

Lift ev'ry voice and sing
'Til earth and heaven ring
Ring with the harmonies of liberty!
