True happiness comes from the joy of deeds well done, the zest of creating things new.

What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)
The last thing I made? This cake for the curling bon spiel (tournament)* we participated in at our club this past weekend:
Because I didn’t have much time, I used a boxed mix and store-bought icing. That’s not my usual MO, but it had to be done. I love baking – the smell of something yummy in the oven just makes me really happy.
I need to make more journals, to complete an item on the 101 in 1001 list – I haven’t made a single one since I put it on the list. I’ve got the materials, I just need to make time. In 2011, I hope to complete them all – want one? 🙂
* I’m working on a post about curling – stay tuned!
