Is it really Sunday already? I don’t really feel like I’ve done much, but the photographic evidence suggests otherwise. Let’s take a look at some of the things I did this weekend.
I finished this nameplate, which I had started last weekend:
This is for the soon-to-be-five-year-old daughter of one of my good friends. Since I made one for the big sister, I had to make one for the little sister (soon to be three!), too:
Here are some photos that give a better sense of their size:
And here’s how they’re going to be hung (same all all the other stuff I’ve done lately):
I also did more work on this little polymer clay tree:
Not sure this is done. I’m working on a series of four trees that will all be mounted together. None of them are done yet, but two are maybe close to being done. We’ll see.
I was also busy in the kitchen:
The top photo is some roasted veggies (sweet potato, kale, cherry tomatoes, onions, olive oil, salt), the center photo is a very spinach-filled lasagna, which is mostly for the husband, though I’m sure I’ll snag a piece, and on the bottom we have a two-layered chocolately treat. The bottom layer was made by pulsing together walnuts, dates, salt, shredded unsweetened coconut, and cocoa powder, which was then pressed into an 8×8 pan, and the top layer was made from more dates, some of the water the dates had been soaking in, and cocoa powder. I spread the top layer on and put the whole dealio in the freezer, then this morning I cut it up into rough pieces and stored it in another container. Well, I cut up what was left–I did snag a few bites straight from the pan last night. Do they taste like brownies? Um, no, but I’ve been on a major chocolate tear lately, and I figured I might as well provide myself and the bambino some nutrition while getting my chocolate fix, and these will do the trick.
And, last but not least, I finally opened my Etsy shop! Everything on there is stuff you’ve seen on the blog, but you can still check it out if you feel so inclined.
I think I am now done “working” for the weekend. We are going to go take a walk and run some errands and then I see myself on the couch for much of the day, because at 26 weeks pregnant I am feeling more and more, well, pregnant. It’s harder to get up from a sitting position and it’s harder to tie my shoes. Oh well, I know this is nothing, and I’m thankful for how easy my pregnancy has been thus far.
What did you do this weekend?
