halloween + peeper <3

I was in a really bad car accident Wednesday morning (not my fault), and have been out the rest of the week. My sweet sweet cousin Tana drove 8 hours on Thursday to come take care of me. She's helped carry me up stairs, hold my neck to drink water, take me to the doctor, etc. She brought me a bunch of flowers and a pumpkin too!

Tonight we carved the pumpkin and made sugar and cinnamon pumpkin seeds (so delicious).

butter + brown sugar + cinnamon + honey. 325 degrees for 25 minutes..so delicious:

cherry preserve thumbprints.

I was in a baking mood tonight, so I made some cookies from a recipe Amy recently posted on her food blog: raspberry jam thumbprints. Mine are cherry preserves. And hers are much cuter. :)

I can't wait to have one for breakfast. Sweets for breakfast are my favorite. You wake up and haven't drank any water for hours (or eaten anything for that matter), so sweets taste sweet x 1,000,000.

I made my "thumbprints" large because I go heavy on any type of sauce/syrup/powdered sugar pile/whatever. My french fries are swimming in ketchup, my sandwiches are loaded with spicy mustard, my pancakes are smothered in powdered sugar...

making a canvas.

my boy came to visit me this past weekend! when I was cleaning up my house the week before I decided I needed something above my bed. this is what I came up with.

I refuse to pay the ridiculous $$ that large canvases cost, so I always build my own. I usually have access to someone's drill, but I didn't this time. I think I'll invest in one soonish.

bridal invites.

I met up with Stephanie, Ashley's maid of honor, a couple weeks ago to make homemade bridal invites.

Happy Saturday!!

Okay, I missed Friday...so Happy Saturday!

I (almost?) finished the dress form a while back. I should put more layers on it, so I'll probably do that and cover it with some type of gloss/finish. A dent appeared while drying, so I have to try and fix that, too. I used the form to start making a skirt. Pretty exciting because I have never sewn anything using a dress form before. It's so convenient. Before I would constantly try the piece on after each step of sewing. very annoying.

My smoothie was really green this morning, sort of funny and cute:
