A Froggy Haloween

An early Halloween party inspired a few Kermit the Frog inspired crafts.

On Saturday night a good friend of mine held an early Halloween party for her close friends, unfortunately I was working late that night so my original costume idea to be the Cheshire Cat wouldn't have worked as it would have had to use face paints which would have made me later than than I already was. So Kermit the Frog it was, adored with the words "It's not easy being green" on the back of my top (Homemade is the only way).

Above are the mint chocolate cupcakes I made for the party, the pumpkin which now acts as a table decoration. A Woodland Nymph ,The Ice Queen and Myself the Frog.

Hello Autumn!

With Autumn brings my favorite weather, the frosty chill that makes you see your breath combined with the sun peeking through the clouds and I get the chance to select a scarf from my collection of many.

I love the introduction of the seasons veg, the jewel colours that come out in fashion and the cozy nights with a hot chocolate, bed socks and a blanket.Where I work has already introduced it's festive product lines and it is surprising the amount of people who pick up a chocolate Santa with their groceries in the early days of October! The festiveness of the chill is just irresistible.

Since everything has slowed down, I have decided to make creative plans to coincide with the seasons changing. I have a Halloween costume to create (Homemade is the only way to go) and have many crafty projects to keep me going until Christmas. I've began making soup again and hope to produce some creative recipes from may many vegi books to warm me up and the watercolors have made an appearance as you can see from my image above devoted to the season.

I have also begun a brand new project! I am now learning to play the piano. This is something I have never had the chance to do before and with my Graduate's free time I have decided to go for it, I am learning from the very beginning and realize that I might find it extremely difficult but I might just be able to play 'Jingle Bells' for Christmas!
My second lesson is tomorrow, wish me luck!

I will be sure to keep my blog updated with all of the above projects!
