Heart Making

Tis the season to settle into crafts and do things that warm the heart for the next couple of seasons.
Between my classes and work schedule, I have been filling my time with friendly excursions, and being as creative as possible... whether that be....

Making Delicious Kale Chips for my study breaks...

Making homemade granola for my quick morning out of the house...

 7 c rolled oats
1/2 c veg oil (grapeseed)
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 c nuts or dried fruit (optional)
1 c honey
1 tsp vanilla
2 tsp cinnamon

oven to 375*
coat the oats with the oil and salt. bake on a large cookie sheet covered with foil or parchment 20 - 25 minutes, checking frequently and stirring them, until they are a light golden brown.
lower the oven to 300*
in a large bowl cover the toasted oats with the rest of the ingredients and press flat on the cookie sheet. bake 35 - 40 more minutes. let cool 10 - 15 minutes before cutting into bars, but don't wait longer than that or they will be too crunchy to easily slice.
Or Also taking 3 weeks of guitar lessons, 
which have left me a little confused, but I am definitely learning :)
(Right now I am practicing "House of The Rising Sun" and "Let it Be")

I hope all of you are having a good transition into fall!

Settling In

I am settling in quite well to this little apartment of mine...
It was rough at first but I think it was also a sign of great transistion for me...
something I needed to go through in order to come out stronger on the other side,
more deservent of this little apartment of mine...
Let me share it with you.

Boardgames and puzzles nestled by the cozy couch,
knitting projects by the bedside,
crafting table always full of new projects,
plants in every corner,
kitchen aid proudly taking up half of the only counter space,
LOVE displayed on every wall, surface, and ray of morning light.
I'm so happy to call this my home.

Thank you Will Maiden for lending me his camera while he was here
and the little lessons in photography :)

Love Britt
