Mast Brothers Chocolate

We acquired this delicious chocolate on our travels in New York. I have been saving it for a special occasion, but I saw it in the cupboard this morning and thought, "there's no time like the present".

If I can give any piece of advice: don't save things. Live in the moment. There's no better time to do whatever you want to do than right now.

Pi Day

Happy Pi Day!

Last night Jason and I made a quick latte stencil for Pi Day! It was really simple. There are only two things you will need: stencil blanks and an X-acto knife. We just printed off the pi symbol, traced it, and then cut it on a our cutting board. I think we will make little stencils for more holidays!

Have you ever made your own stencil?

Concrete Candleholder DIY

We had never made something with concrete before, so I'm pretty proud of how our candleholder turned out! We combined the concrete powder and water in paper cups, and filled up a small plastic container with the mixture. We stuck in a tea light candle, and waited twenty-four hours for everything to dry. The next day we cut the plastic off, and used sandpaper to even out the top of the candleholder.

If you try this out don't forget to use gloves and a mask. It's not good to breathe in the dust. Safety first!

When it's gloomy: eat grapefruit and read poetry (especially if that poetry is about your favorite city).
