The Return of Craft

He's been lovingly dusted off and is currently assisting in a Valentine's gift for Sam. I'll say more when Sam is not looking over my shoulder.

Also, has anyone noticed the "celebration of boy" happening on a couple of blogs I follow? It's definitely difficult to find boy themed tutorials in this craft blogosphere. Most tutorials include ruffles and a dress of some sort. Anyway, these two bloggers have dedicated the entire month to boydom. Awesome. (Sarah, I can't wait to see what you whip up for your upcoming bundle of boyness!) Look here and here. I'm thinking about combining this and this to make a backpack of surprises to keep Kedzie busy on our upcoming flight to Denver.

Anyway, inspiration has struck and it feels good. It also feels good to not be nauseous 24/7...although the heartburn has kicked in.

Sam was also motivated to be crafty today and after some inspiration from Soulemama took to his favorite craft of bread baking. We have very expensive taste and prefer home baked bread to any type of processed bread. This leads to a much higher grocery bill as the bread we prefer is from either City Bakery or Annie's and runs anywhere from $4.99-5.49 per loaf. Yeah, we know, but so good. Anyway, needing to decrease our grocery bill without buying wonder bread we decided to take matters into our own hands. Sam, already having the Tassajara Bread Book on hand, read a couple chapters and got to work.

The results:
So large that no ziploc bag could contain it. Hasn't been tasted yet, but I'm thinking french toast in the morning. I'll let you know.

Perhaps we'll have to add this to the craft project to-do list.

Oh, and Kedzie is a walking fool. So proud of himself.
Thank you all for the well wishes about baby two. It's exciting and amazing and we can't wait to meet the little peanut.



  1. Homemade bread is awsome. I just tried a new recepie for no-knead bread. Honey oat, came out great! We'll have to recepie swap.


  2. oh please post any and all bread recipes (that don't need a machine) I would so love to work on my bread making skills.

    ps. Way to Go Kedzie!!

  3. Yeah, your bread looks to die for! Sweet little Kedzie is looking more and more like a BOY instead of a baby. Now that he's a big brother, he seems older too maybe. I'm gonna check out all your boy blogs you linked to!
