Great way to end a day

I woke up this morning to a grey sky and rain, which gave way to clouds, and then brightened to a sunny day. A hot, sunny day. And for some reason, the fan wasn’t even on for most of it.

Feeling in rather a crafty mood, I went to the local Goodwill to see what I could find to work with. I have a lot of ideas lately for some great repurposing/upcycling projects, and having worked for Goodwill in Seattle, it has a special place in my heart.

For $13.36, I came away with two glass bowls, three picture frames, a bag of buttons and old sewing gear, two hardback books on Greek Mythology, and a paperback by Robert Holdstock.

The hardbacks I’ll probably sell (I have so many mythology books), some of the sewing gear is going to be sold as well, and I am working with the glass bowls and picture frames this week. I hope to make the frames fabulous and maybe post some items on Etsy.

Once home, I sorted through the buttons, made a pincushion, did some painting, designed the first bowl decor, and then I thought, “you know what would be amazing?”


Yep. Banana bread. Delicious. I even tried a new recipe that uses apple sauce because I’ve been wanting to try that for a while. Waaaaay moist. I did add chocolate chips for the hubby.

Link to recipe? You got it!

Hi. I live in Michigan, but I'm from Georgia, Pennsylvania, Seattle, and Arkansas (no, not an Army brat). I live with my husband and our cats, Cirilla and Dandelion. I'm a bonafide Salesforce Admin & Marketo Certified Expert. I like to craft. I like to cook. I like to eat and drink. I like to laugh. I like comic books and video games and sci-fi. I like a whole lot of things, and chances are, I will like you! I've also been a lot of things, like a 9-1-1 dispatcher, a teacher, and for a while I wrote obituaries. Right now I am a Salesforce Consultant! Who knew? Friends?
