I'm not going to make 100 but here's a few more ...

The friend who first set me on this course could probably work out how many crafty things I'd have to do/make a day for the rest of 2009 to reach the end goal. In fact even I could do that kind of maths I guess, but it's a bit disheartening.
Unless I'm allowed to count growing a foetus and revamping half my house for a good 30 or so points (each) I don't think I'll be reaching 100 crafts in 2009. I'm okay with that.
But even though I last boasted posted on this in July, I've not been completely useless since then. Although I'm taking wild liberties with what I count, as you'll see ... oh and, some of my photos are shite.
I'm like, so creative.

Back on my blog's 1st birthday I made these quirky and delicious cupcake burgers.

no. 34

Then there was this artfully wrapped birthday gift and card.

no. 35

A batch of birthday cupcakes and a card for a friend.

no. 36
(maybe next year I should aim for 100 cupcakes?)

Never having been to boarding school I'm a big fan of macaroni cheese. And while it may seem that counting such a mediocre dish as a 'creative' thing is stretching the definition way too far, can I just say that I found heaven when I discovered this recipe, for souffled mac 'n cheese.

no. 37

Then there were two cards for newborn baby girls.

no. 38

no. 39

And during my strawberry obsession in the beginning of this pregnancy, this strawberry sponge cake:

no. 40
And the latest, totally inspired by this, I started making a candygram for my brother's birthday. But of course it took on a life of it's own, not a little influenced in my growing interest in diorama's (which I'll get into some other time), and with the addition of a homey action figure and some scrapping materials it became a most uniquely wrapped book voucher.

no. 41!

Just 59 to go before the end of the year. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ...

souffled mac 'n cheese is my idea of a the pefect meal.. kind of a "light" mac and cheese, perfect for a winter night!

Your blog is so wonderful, what a treat! Thank you!

so, are those candy sprinkles on the top of the cupcake burgers? because that seems a little weird. tho' you're pregnant, so i suppose that explains it.

and remember you can count artfully arranged rocks or shells as bits of creativity.
