Mixed Media - Pastel drawing

I'm already into week 3 of my new class! How does it go so quickly? Anyway...our week 2 assignment, was to create a pastel drawing, inspired by a quotation, that could be used in a calendar. The quote I chose is:

"Winter is on my head, but eternal spring is in my heart" -Victor Hugo

Blog Carnival for May

The Carnival for this week, is to post a tutorial to share with my fellow etsy bloggers...

I saw some people were posting recipes, and off the top of my head, I can't think of anything else to make a tutorial of :p

I give you, the famous chili dip! It really is almost like an instant party snack...takes about 5 minutes to make, and it's always completely gone when I put it out for any party!

1 block of cream cheese
1 can of chili
1 bag of shredded Mexican cheese

in a microwave safe dish, mix the cream cheese and the chili until combined

top with shredded cheese

microwave until melted (usually 2-3 minutes)

and ta-da...literally the easiest party dish...ever :p and mighty delish as well...sometimes I eat it for dinner...don't tell ;)

is it done yet??

seriously, when can I move in ;)

Cozy in May

I am so in love with this scarf that our super talented, Etsy Blogger of the month has listed in her store...I've always wanted to learn to crochet, as I've somewhat gotten the hang of knitting...okay, I can make scarves, that's about my biggest accomplishment! Cozy uses the most beautiful supplies and creates masterpieces to wear on your head, or around your neck...or even to dry your dishes!

a new addition

the newest member of the Brownlie clan...Mr Jace Douglas :)

Congrats to Doug & Melissa!!!
