Craft Hoarding

I just haven't finished my projects yet.
I haven't decided what to make with the fabric/yarn/paper yet.
It was on super sale and a total steal!

All symptoms of craft hoarding. Apparently it's a common affliction. Once you have to buy storage equipment or extra pieces of furniture to "organize" your stash of craft supplies, I think you have to ask yourself if you're a craft hoarder. Guilty. Definitely guilty. 

There's this funny post about signs that you're a craft hoarder. Yet, while reading it, I couldn't help but wish I could lay my hands on that must-have ribbon in photo #3. 

And OH. MY. GOD. I have toyed with the idea of saving dryer lint and dog hair! I didn't know you could actually felt cat hair! Hmm... What about dog hair?

Help me, I'm sick!

Swedish Pancakes

Well, I knew that somehow I'd screw this up.

A fool-proof recipe:
1 cup flour.
2 cups milk.
4 eggs.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour.

What happened? The egg separated from the rest of the batter, and it looks like a Spanish tortilla. (I also threw in some pine nuts that the kids had left uneaten on their plates). Tastes ok, but I don't know what Swedish pancake is supposed to taste like. The kids saw it and said "huevos!" and peeled off the egg layer to eat first.

T's explanation: the cast iron takes a while to heat up so the elapsed time allowed the egg to separate while in the oven. Of course he used fancier words like "thermal mass" blah, blah, blah. I love my cast iron. They take my abuses without complaints. Next time I'll pre-heat the skillet. :)

Project: Updating Exterior House Colors

First off, I did not paint the house myself. I hired professionals. I chose the colors.



Second, yes, I should have taken a picture of the house from the same angle. I forgot what the old photo looked like. Duh!
