Eye Doodles

Last week for our virtual Crafternoon we doodled! I decided to doodle a bunch of different eyes and this is what they look like.

Faux Double Exposures

Since I've been trying to take more photos, I started making weekly faux double exposures with my mom and sister. We each take one picture and combine them to make three different double exposures. Here are a few we've made so far. You can see more in my 2020 double exposures album on my flickr.

Blueberry Banana Bread

I had some bananas that were extra ripe and perfect for banana bread but with the heatwave were were having this weekend (and the fact that my air conditioner broke) I didn't want to turn on the oven. I wondered if you can bake a cake in a bread machine and it turns out you can so I did! 

Blueberry Banana Bread

The recipe for this banana bread was a little bit made up because of the ingredients I had on hand and wanted to use. It has some wild yeast instead of chemical leaving, but I didn't give it much time to rise so the loaf is pretty dense, but it is full of bananas and blueberries so it's still delicious. I have some zucchini so I think I'll be making a similar treat later this week, but will definitely give the yeast time to multiply and get bubbly!

Watercolor Collage

Last week we had another virtual crafternoon and did some watercolor collages by painting a page with watercolor blocks then letting them dry and ripping them up into various shapes and gluing them on another page. These are the two I made:
