Weekend Plans 2/8 - 2/10
This week flew by in a flash! I woke up this morning thinking today was Thursday. I am so happy that I was wrong. I have a few upcoming projects to finish over the next few days. Hopefully I will have some time to spare for a baking adventure I have always wanted to try. Here's what I have planned this weekend...
- I need to print out some of Ello Lovey's Valentine's Day cards and drop them off at the post office. I wrapped one of my crochet hearts around a card and gave it to my friend at lunch yesterday. She loved it!
- Thank you so much for the amazing response to my Sheepish Heart Bomb announcement yesterday! I can't wait to see how many people participate. I hope little hearts are shared all over the world. I plan on finishing up my knit yarn bomb and crocheting a few extra hearts to hang around town on Valentine's Day.
- Even though they look intimidating, I have always wanted to bake my own batch of macarons. I found this Martha Stewart raspberry macaron recipe and it looks like a good starting point for a beginner. I like that the filling is pre-made raspberry jam. Instead of worrying about the filling, I can focus on perfecting the temperamental macaron shells. Hopefully I will get some good macaron "feet". :)
- I discovered the lovely Betty Magazine a few weeks ago and decided to order a copy. Betty is a beautiful fashion and lifestyle magazine based in London. It arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon and I can't wait to flip through the inspiring pages over the weekend.
That's about it! I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend.
What do you have planned? Are you working on any special Valentine's Day crafts? Have you started making hearts for the Sheepish Heart Bomb next week?
