Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I love using my stand mixer.  I also love making cookies.  I like to use the mini chips - it feels like you can fit more chocolate into each cookie that way.  Also, I use the measuring spoon teaspoon to scoop the dough to get a nice circle shape.  Those are my tips.

Weekend with a Niece

Making of the Gulf Fritillary Necklace

This is the process of creating the Gulf Fritillary Necklace
 I start with a pencil drawing.
 Then I start carving the outline in the wax.

 Then I carve some more.
Until I have the finished wax piece.
I have the wax cast into metal, finish any details and polish it up.

Brooklyn Botanical Gardens

Everything is blooming.
I love Spring!

Hello Eloise!

My niece Eloise arrives today from London for a visit with her parents.  She is 6 months old.  I am very excited to see her.  These are some pages from a book I made her for Christmas so that she would know all her American relatives when she saw them.  The book introduces all the family members and then each person says hello and an activity they would like to do with her.
