Watch The Guilty Crafter videos!







I cook poorly, I craft obsessively and I love the look of a retro cocktail. When I am feeling guilty about taking time away from my family with my obsessions, I make videos about my guilt as "The Guilty Crafter" or I blog here. Thanks for stopping by!

Closing out a productive Valentine's Day 

*Whew!* I'm in the home stretch of a big burst of theme-crazed energy. The whole wheat banana strawberry muffins (a little too healthy for my usual tastes but these were for a party my daughter's 2nd grade class hosted for their kindergarten "buddies" at school so I decided to go the wholesome route). One little neighbor girl who taste-tested them for me this morning pronounced them "a little good, and a little not-good." Fair enough for a whole wheat muffin that uses applesauce instead of oil or butter, I suppose. I'll take it.

And now the meatloaf is in the oven. I went with 4 individual hearts and I'm torn. I don't profess to be the best photographer out there but I did put a little effort into my photos today. I challenge anyone to make a heart-shaped hunk of ground beef look appetizing. My apologies to my vegetarian friends.

Happy Valentine's Day! Now back to planning my April Fool's Day menu!
