Hey all! I feel it's been awhile since I just dithered about things here, so that's the kind of post I'm going with today.
On the writing front, it's been slow. I've barely written anything in the past month,which for me is not normal. It all has to do with life stress and I feel super guilty about it. I have done a lot of thinking on my WiP, so that's good, being I've worked out quite a few plot issues. But still...I need to do the whole BICHOK* thing asap.
Then there's the near-future thriller that I've got hanging around begging to be revised. I have critique partner notes all ready to go, but no motivation. I know it's just one of those phases that I'll eventually work my way through. Until then...(shrugs and goes and reads another Regency romance).
I have been creative in other areas, as I decided to make my own cupcake stands. I scoured the junk shops in my area and came up w/lots of white (well, white-ish) plates. Then I went to the Dollar Store and bought candle stick holders. Here's what they look like, they just need to be glued down. Most of the DIY blogs recommended E6000 superglue, and I've yet to meander out and buy it.
Setting the stage for the picture. Nothing says party like fun straws, in my opinion.
Up close of my favorite one.
I think they'll look nice at either end of a table, one with savory food stuffs on it, and the other sweet. Cupcakes, of course! I also bought lots of little jelly jars. I had two at home and bought eight more.
I'd like to use them for dessert shooters. I can imagine all kinds of combos of cream cheese layers, graham cracker crumbs, and whatever fruit filling you're feeling at the moment.
Ugh, I'm so making myself hungry right now.
