Let's keep cooking

You think I was gone? Well, yes, maybe for a while. This does't mean I stopped baking, far from it. But I had to arrange my priorities and I have too many projects to do this correctly. I'm sorry for those who kept checking the blog and found nothing. So I have a few treats for you.

Dear Harry, you know why I send you this

Today is Harry's birthday. Now all books and films are out, there is (almost) nothing less but fans to keep the story alive. I never thanked J K Rowling for writing such a story which followed me through my childhood and teenage years. This is not much, but I needed to bake the very first cake that appears in the book: the one Hagrid gave Harry for his eleven's birthday. I'll add the recipe soon.

It happens that I see the world in different shades of grey. Usually, that upsets me because there are so many things I want to do and I don't want to "wander uncreatively". So the best way to get over it is to do something, anything, using as many colours as possible.

The Lovers' letter

There is little time, I attended the second wedding of the year. And there's still one to be done in just a few weeks! Apart from the hat and the bag that I crafted for the occasion, I also made a small card to congratulate my drear newlyweds. It's an idea I had for a while, but I never took time to make it real.

One more collage

Hello, today I offer you yet another doodle from my hands. This "Sun Explosion" is a mix of ingraving and collage. I don't know how you call this technique in English. I think in French it's embosser so maybe you can say embossing. I ingraved a piece of wood which I later printed without ink but on a wet paper. So you can actually see the image in 3D. On top of it I added flowers that I love cutting in printed papers that I kept from my school workshop (leftovers of course! I didn't use my own or someone else's work). I takes a while to sew them on it, but hey, here's the little thing.

Just a drawn treat

Hello everyone! I wanted to write just to share a drawing I made a few days ago. It's not complete yet because there's no background, but I can't decide how to make it (and when because it's quite big). What colour do you think would fit best? Any comment is welcome on that!
