Hollywood comes to Eastown!

Sunday evening a film crew showed up in our neighborhood to shoot a movie called Caught in the Crossfire. I am now consider myself to be a celebrity stalker. Saw 50 cent, Adam Rodriguez (CSI: Miami) and had a photo taken with Chris Klein (American Pie). The bottom picture was taken from our front porch.

Cupcake Marathon!

My husband is running in the Bayshore Marathon in Traverse City, Michigan on Saturday. In honor of his run, and all his friends in RunGazelle, I have been on a cupcake baking marathon. So far this has been my personal best. Number one is a lovely Peanut Butter cupcake with Peanut Butter Frosting and a sliver of dark chocolate on top. Number two is a Maple French Toast cupcake with Maple frosting and a slice of bacon on top.

Run, Darrin, Run!

Dying workshop with Bryan Schneider-Thomas

Took a fiber dying workshop from Bryan Schneider-Thomas through the Woodland Weavers and Spinners Guild in April. Had a great time dying some of my hand spun yarns. Also dyed some Laminated Felt swatches for future use as scarves.
