8.5 down. 13.5 to go.

well, it's september! another month and the summer gone.
august was busy - i had a lot of family in town visiting, my brother's, dad's and sister's birthdays - lots of bbq's and sunshine.
today it's rainy and cold, which means i can blog. haha.
as for goal progress this month, i get a half point.
1/2 goal accomplished:
make rainbow cupcakes and waffle cookies

i made these for my sister's birthday.
all you do is take whichever cake batter you prefer (i used lemon) and divide it into 6 bowls. add food colouring to each to make purple, blue, green, yellow, orange and red cake batter.
fill the cupcake liners by layering the colours, then bake as usual.
it took a lot longer to get them to the oven than a plain cupcake, but they were so fun to crack open!

otherwise i did do a photoshoot this month, with an old friend lindsay.  we grabbed a bunch of my vintage shopping scores and headed to Pioneer Village in Thunder Bay.  It's one of those recreated-town-museums and had loads of interesting old things to look at.  

she also has a love for angels, so we thought we'd give that a try.
here is what the goal list is looking like right now:

and on another note i did accomplish some other things in august - i packed up all of my belongings and shipped them to toronto (where i now live) and i finally got my driver's licence!
i know, i know, i am nearly 28 and now i can finally drive, just before moving to a big city where i'll never have a car.  haha! anyway, that felt good, it's been a long time coming.  

i have to return to job hunting for my new big city life.  hopefully more blogging soon!
love mel


  1. hehehehe I am 30 and JUST got my learners! Gotta start somewhere! Sent off your first lil treat last week, hope it gets to you soon!

  2. I really like the photo with her driving the vechile. It captures what the moment is suppose to feel like. It definetly creates a vintage era vibe.
