Craft Extravaganza

So, yesterday I planted my seeds for the spring. Last year I did it in March and I felt my plants were a little later-blooming than I would have liked, so I started earlier this year. I'm also hopeful that all this activity will alleviate my depression of late. Planting seeds means spring is coming.
Here are 3 of the many trays of seeds currently taking over our mudroom (Sorry Thomas!)



As I mentioned previously, I rely heavily on crafts to get me through the winter season. So Friday, Jennifer and I did a practice run for this month's stitch and bitch: Mod Podge. Also, Jenn is a great beader, so we made bracelets, which made me very happy.



This is Jennifer's mod podge cigar box

Finally, Thomas and I decided to stay in for V-day this week and I'm going to cook us something shmancy. Please help me choose between these two (low-carb!) desserts:
Dessert A: Strawberry Shortcake

Dessert B: Flourless Chocolate Hazelnut Torte

I vote for the flourless chocolate thing. Yum.

i'd go with the flourless chocolate cake too, if only because strawberry shortcake is so strawberry-dependent that it really deserves a season when there are fresh local strawberries or something.

also, recipe? *looks cute*

Hazelnut torte. It seems a lot fancier.

I'm going for the strawberry shortcake, but if it's hard to get the berries, then go for the chocolate.

Your Mod Podge projects look fantastic!

definately the chocolate torte...might as well practice so you can make one for the stitch and bitch

see i was thinking strawberry- the tort seems too dense, possibly winter like where as the strawberry thing seems light and effortless like fallen snow and possilby sugar kisses.
