With this coming holiday season (who am I kidding? Every time this year...) I feel really tempted to bake lots of pies and cookies and cakes. I'm actually thinking about baking chocolate chip cookies tonight. I'll bake half the batch of cookies tonight and place the rest of the dough in the freezer for next week. Sounds like a delicious plan.

I've updated my online shop with some new items: some new original art. Be sure to check it out. As you can see, I have links to my shop on the side of this page and in the Shop tab at the top of the page. I'll be adding some more items in the coming days, as well.

I have a SALE going on right now. 10% off your entire order when you use the coupon code: HOLIDAY16

I'm also planning a sale for Cyber Monday, so be sure to check back again.

I'm off to make those cookies now....

Oh! And before I forget. I'm on Instagram now! You can see things I'm currently working on at different stages: pencils, inks, paints, and some of my knitting too.

And as an update to my last post:
The sourdough starter was too finicky for me. I used it all up and didn't start it again. I've found a no knead bread recipe I really enjoy baking instead from the King Arthur Flour website. That's becoming my go-to recipe when I've eaten all of the grocery store bread I've bought.

Summer thoughts

I can't believe I've gone on so long without posting anything new here... No, no. Actually, I can believe it as I've gone through these little dry periods on my blog before. I, also, haven't done any personal sketching in quite a while. There is the one cat painting I made for myself that I recently posted onto my Facebook page. Aside from that, I'm knitting, working on commissions, and baking a lot. In particular, I've started keeping my own sourdough starter in order to make delicious things such as bread, waffles, pizza crust, etc. I dislike this summer heat that's happening, but I do love the summer corn that's in season.
