In case you’ve been in a social media black hole, Mother’s Day is right around the corner (May 10th to be specific). And while it should not be necessary to have a separate category of cards and gifts for the non-bio moms in our lives, today we are going to talk about cards for step-moms. But first, we are going to talk about step-moms.Read More
Just kidding. I still haven’t made the soup. But I did work on my homework for a tabletop photography class that I am taking through nicolesclasses.com. This week’s homework was to shoot a magazine cover based on your favorite magazine and an ad for Kate Spade. Harder than I thought to capture the color and almost impossible to find anything in my house that remotely looks like Kate Spade. I only wish.
In the end, I decided to go with glassware. Not very Kate Spade. Oh well. The good news is that one of my kids told me that my photographs are getting so much better. He might be my favorite kid now. Clearly, Christmas is coming.
I had a really good time with the magazine cover. One of my favorite magazines is Sweet Paul. The photos and recipes are absolutely amazing. I am inspired every time I pick it up.
I used Illustrator (another Nicole's Classes experience - thanks, Alma!) to add my mock title. Apologies for the amateur copy of your magazine, Sweet Paul. It is out of great artistic resect that I attempted to make a cover like yours for this assignment. I would love love to go to Sweet Paul’s Makerie in New York next March. Anyone want to send me?
Oh, and these cookies? Yep, they are amazing. Chocolate crackle cookies from the old Williams-Sonoma Kids Baking cookbook. This book is worth the $5 that Barnes & Noble is charging. It is my go-to for banana bread, oatmeal cookies, and these chocolate crackle cookies. You can also try Martha Stewart's chocolate crackle cookies. They are a little more high maintenance, but delicious.
