Baking and beyond!

Well, the first thing that I want to say is that I am a bit excited about this blog.  That may sound a bit indulgent as it is mostly about myself and what I get up to, but it is excitement more about the fact that I can share and document all the creative ideas I have, and the results of my work.   The bonus is that some of you might get inspired (you never know) and try out one of my recipes or attempt a homemade project that I have shared and it might just make your day that you did.

You may know that I have three young children so involvement of little ones tends to happen quite a lot with the things I do.  I’m hoping this will mostly be a good thing, as being creative with my kids doubles the fun in my eyes.  There are however, times when I really enjoy doing stuff on my own.  Baking can be one of these things, especially when I am trying out something new or a bit challenging.  I see it as ‘me’ time!  I have recently started to try my hand at pastry, macaroons, and bread to name a few.  Every night this week my husband has come home to find me baking something new.  Lucky him I say!  Using my creative streak (which is always longing to be used) keeps me happy and if I can teach myself some new skills along the way, all the better! Plus he gets to taste all of my creations!  I’ve got a few ideas for a homemade Christmas as well.  Will add these to my blog in the next few weeks.

I’m planning to blog about once a week, and I would love to hear what you think or want more or less of.  So get stuck in and enjoy.
