So most people spend their evenings making a quick meal and vegging out in front of the television. Me I study and cook. Paper crafts have had a hard time finding their way into my schedule since classes began, but I have been a crocheting machine, and I've been cooking a lot. For instance this evening I made chicken pot-pies. Fairly simple, but it sure feels like a meal that is special.

These will feed me by the way, for the rest of the month I think! I really enjoy cooking, and love cooking for other people but I don't get a lot of visitors. :-( Yes I am trying to guilt you all to come and visit me. ;-) I even create my own recipes and I'm thinking I should people to test them out since I've dabbled with the idea of seeing if I could get a cookbook published. I dream big, lol.

In other news I crocheted a baby blanket with some leftovers from Jennifer's blanket. It's uber adorable and has a hood, which I have found out a lot of moms really like. I haven't photographed it yet but this is what it looks like, only in red.

That's all I've got for now, but as the school year continues I hope that I'll be able to post a few times a month. Now to go enjoy my creation, and watch some TV shows that are premiering! Yay for Criminal Minds, and the Big Bang Theory tomorrow night!!! =)

The J. Broad Post

So Jennifer's seem to be abundant in my life. My sister is a Jennifer, and one of my best friends (she's also a former roommate, and sorority little sister) is a Jennifer. This post though is dedicated to the recent crafts that I have made for my friend Jennifer. I was going to wait to post these until I gave them to her, but since we have had some schedule issues and haven't caught up with each other in person for some time (Skype is wonderful though!) I decided I was going to post these anyways. First up, the chipboard album that I made a while ago but had waited to post.

Next up is an afghan that I made for a member of her family. Since he is really into the Disney Pixar movie Car's I naturally had to make a themed blanket seeing as I am a former devoted Disney cast member myself. The 95 is the character Lightning McQueen's number, and since his name is Lightning I'm sure you can figure out why the lightning bolt. I tried to make it look as much like a checkered flag as possible too. My only concern is that unlike the number's the lightning bolts are just embroidered on the afghan, and since this is going to a little boy who knows how long they will stay on there. I think it will still look cool even if they come off though.

All right that is all I have for now. With classes back in session I'll be doing a lot more reading, writing, and studying so even though I will try and keep up with my crafting, who knows what I'll end up doing through the winter. Keep checking back for more of my craziness! =)
