Christmas Eve with Eva: Baking Cookies

This year, Eva and I made cookies for Santa. Usually, I buy them already made. She wanted to help. Since I cannot find the mixer, Eva was in charge of mashing everything together. Then she put the cookie dough on the sheet. Most of it made it to the cookie sheet. A small percentage wasContinue reading “Christmas Eve with Eva: Baking Cookies”

For Pete’s sake, I haven’t even been to Cleveland for several months.  I’ve mostlyContinue reading “Inspiration: Movies, Cooking & Surfing”

Eco-friendly Earrings

I don’t mean to brag but I have scored a really great present for the teenager. She likes skulls, steampunk and jewelry. So I found the sugar skull and steampunk earrings from Green Tea Jewelry. I think that the teenager will love them -until she moves on to another phase. As long as she lovesContinue reading “Eco-friendly Earrings”
