Pillows & Cupcakes.

Hey everyone! Well, this weekend certainly was eventful. Friday classes were canceled -- however, I don't have Friday classes, haha! Oh well. Congrats to my fellow undergrads who did for their day off in forever at our school.

I played in the snow, as seen in the post before this. Patrick got some time off from work and rehearsal, so more snuggle time! :)

I certainly did not procrastinate my Drawing 3 homework... ahem. Cough. While not procrastinating that, I worked on my t-shirt pillow: I sewed the sleeves and top hole, and have stuffed it halfway. There wasn't any real alteration I could do otherwise to wear it, so this seemed appropriate. I might even sell it when I'm done. (Can I do that??)

Also, I'm so very proud to announce that I satisfied my itch to bake goodies today. I looked up a semi-simple recipe for orange cupcakes. When I looked in the fridge, I found the OJ was almost empty and 6 days expired. Ew. So instead, I used lemonade with a mix of limeade as a substitute. For icing, I did a simple limeade-sugar glaze, since I don't have anything for proper frosting. Sprinkled on top was green sugar from Christmas cookies I've had for a while.


I took them to the theater of Patrick's play while they were fresh, and everyone loved them! I was so happy at the success that I braved the snow and ice to give the players treats. It made the baker housewife in me glow. Hooray!

Hopefully this week of school won't be too hard on me. I have an ongoing series for Drawing 3 to do, self portrait in painting (yuck yuck yuck), Art History test possibly, and a periodical review for my educational class. Wish me luck, and I wish you the same for your endeavors! :)

It's really a simple recipe for such tasty cupcakes. I've yet to get an electric beater/mixer so any recipes requiring that is out for me.

The lemonade worked great, can't imagine what the orange version tastes like. :9 Give it a shot!
