Unlike what seems to be the vast majority of bloggers, who all seem to have Etsy shops and make cool necklaces and bracelets out of rusty tin cans and other things found lying around the house…I’m not a crafter. I can’t even draw! I get the cold sweats at the mere mention of Pictionary. Ask me to draw anything trickier than a house or a car and I freeze. (My sketch of a bicycle was once mistaken for carrots. No joke.)
No, the last thing I made would have been something food related. I bake at least once a week, and at least one of my days off is usually spent mostly in the kitchen. While I am probably better at cooking (marginally) as it’s less of a science than baking, I have a strange addiction to playing with dough. Whether it’s pizza dough or cookie dough, I could spend all day kneading and mushing and rolling. And the very last thing I made was shortbread, which was surprisingly easy and most of all, DELICIOUS.
One thing I would like to do is update my vision board. The name is a little misleading; it’s not very visionary at al. It’s more of a motivation board, really. Pictures to remind me of my goals and motivate me to accomplish them. Before embarking on that though, I need to sit down and nut out some resolutions for 2011.
In other news: Thanks to Miss T at Prairie EcoThrifter for including me in this week’s Carnival of Personal Finance! I’m currently leaning towards shelling out for the full car insurance, but would love your input if you haven’t already weighed in.
