New Year, New Blog?

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope 2012 has been kind to you so far!

Obviously my hiatus lasted a little longer than planned. There were many reasons for taking a break, but now I’m refreshed and ready to start anew! I’m still designing and crafting all the time, so I’ll be blogging about my latest projects again :)

As for changes, I’ve been spending more and more time cooking, so this year I’ll be sharing some of my adventures in food making in addition to my other creative pursuits. I’ve also been getting ever more deeply involved in the furniture and interior design world, so that’ll probably spill over more in my design posts. I can’t wait to share my latest passions with you!

How about we start off with a couple of my recent favs?

Design & Art: I love this apartment featured in Elle Decor. It’s beautifully designed, luxurious, yet very fun and full of personality. The designers Timothy Haynes and Kevin Roberts, or Haynes-Roberts Inc, really pushed the envelope (I’m sure having lots of time and a huge budget helped ;)) and the results are gorgeous. Also, I want this painting by Takashi Murakami!!

Fifth Avenue Jewel

Crafts: I made these adorable slippers for Christmas gifts this year! I found the pattern in a vintage crochet magazine and fell in love :) (They reminded me of slippers my sister had as a kid!) It was the first time I’d made anything foot-related, so it was new and exciting for me.

Crocheted Slippers

Food: My favorite recipe of late (except maybe stuffed acorn squash – YUM) is this wonderful walnut taco fiesta from My New Roots. I’ve made it a few times to everyone’s delight. On top of being super tasty, it’s quick and easy to make, which is always a win!
