Channeling My Inner Martha Stewart

Oh Martha, how I envy your crafty ways, cooking skills and organization that the OCD part of myself fantasizes about. Your empire is a gift, your criminal history… not so brag worthy but you bounced back. So channeling my inner Martha, but with a more modern twist because I do not live back in the 60s (Mad Men… swoon), I have my herb garden (still alive WHOOP!), dessert for Easter to make, a quiche to perfect, and a new craft… a new print! I made a print last summer for Jon while he was at OCS for the summer and it turned out great and I really enjoyed it.

Here’s the picture of the one I made last summer. It was a rough draft and taken with the fratberry so pardon both the quality of the print and the picture.

I got the idea from pinterest to make little stamps/prints out of erasers and I made one:

eraser stamp and how it prints!

Here are some possibilities for the new print… The small ones at the top, like the infinities and hearts and monograms are for the erasers, while the larger ones for the linoleum print. What do you think? Any other ideas?

moustache, monogram, whales, Texas, compass, or a grumpy bear and a grumpy platypus

And as for my dessert, I’ve made these before and they were a big hit for my family, so I made them for Easter! Oreo Cheesecake Cupcakes with a whole Oreo on the bottom! Quite delicious if I do say so myself. I got the recipe here and didn’t make any changes except added maybe like 2 or 3 minutes to the baking time but that depends on your oven. They are of course in Easter cupcake liners.

Oreo on the bottom and pieces all throughout

Happy Good Friday!
