Last weekend, ZMrK and I were expecting some friends over. (Yes! We have real-life friends!) We made some cupcakes with the idea of making little mummies (inspired by Martha Stewart, but we went with the decidedly un-Martha-esque Betty Crocker cake mix and buttercream frosting).
Towards the end, it was decided to put green food coloring into the frosting to make a bunch of Creature from the Black Lagoon cupcakes:
We made 24 in all.
They were delicious.
I also was inspired enough to draw an old Halloween decoration.
I used watercolor pencils and pen and ink. I'm really rusty in the drawing department, but I took my time and did a decent job. I usually rush myself because I'm really impatient.
I got a couple of good photos in my 'hood recently. It was about 7:20 in the morning, and I had gotten out of the house early so I could take a walk and get some pictures. These were taken at the top of a hill not far from my house:
I really like how the photos are a little out of focus. I don't know if that's because of the early morning light, or because my camera was about to break. Oh yeah, my camera is at Best Buy because it shit the bed and there was still a year left on the warranty. They're going to try to fix it. If they can't, I just might get a new camera.
I hope you've been enjoying the photos, because you may not see any for a little while.
