Memories In A Bottle

Okay, so this post doesn’t directly involve food. It is however, food related in that I had to consume many beverages in order to get the empty bottles I used for this DIY project.

Every birthday and Christmas there is always that one person who gives you a picture frame. On your graduation day- picture frame, wedding day- picture frame, house warming- picture frame. To be honest I hate picture frames most of the time, they’re boring and take up too much wall and desk space.

My solution for the frame problem came in glass bottles.

Constructing these require no skill whatsoever. Buy a mason jar or soda, eat/drink contents, wash and dry the container, print a picture, roll it up and drop it in.


Beads Grow On Trees And Pants Rip At The Seams

The night was supposed to be relaxed and quite. Lately I haven’t had any nights like this, but I enjoy the spontaneity more anyway. This squid cake, made with chocolate and strawberry cake, was for a surprise party for my very dear friend Betsy.

Instead of eating cake we loaded up in a car and hit the town. Our night of celebrating Betsy’s 20 years of life included (and was not limited to) exploding lighters, partially stolen rebel flag belt buckles, climbing trees, throwing beads, stalking a Greek restaurant, sprinklers, pants ripped at the crotch, piers and lighthouses, drunken middle-aged dancers, a gazebo, and tether ball.

Mostly I just loved spending time with my lovely friend for her birthday.
