Exercise in frustration

recipebox
Isn’t the recipe box my mom bought me too cute? It makes me way to type up every recipe I have on some cute little recipe cards.

I finally, finally, finally have the new design done and implemented. It took exponentially longer than I thought it would*, but I am quite happy with it for now. I don’t even know why it took so long, I had the mock-up done in a day or so and the bulk of the layout marked up in the same. See, this is the problem with being crazy, you get so wrapped up in details that the next thing you know it’s 6 hours later and you still haven’t figured out why <insert element here> is being a total <insert expletive here>. Plus, for someone who isn’t employed, I seem to be really busy lately. Anywho, it’s all done now.

Monks – Monday links

Some stuff to peruse while I am housecleaning:

Before & After – Amy’s Louisiana home @ Design*Sponge – Absolutely beautiful and a rental. Louisiana represent!

Did you know? video via Larissa Meek – While watching this I paused it roughly every 10 secs to exclaim about a statistic to The Husband.

Vintage modern apartment in Germany @ decor8 – Love, love, love this apartment.

Homemade Pastrami, Part Deux @ Cruftbox– I have never tasted pastrami before, but now I really, really want to.

Darth Vadar recites the alphabet via swissmiss – The ABCs never sounded more imperial.

Bright White Storybook Kitchen @ Inside A Black Apple – Pretty much the cutest kitchen I have ever seen. Evar.

Recipe of the Day: Meat Pies @ NotQuiteJuneCleaver– My Mom and Dad make meat pies. These are so good, they will make you slap your mama. So you might want to consider eating them whilst not in her company.

I am so doing this…

diy project: window films via Design*Sponge

There are actually several windows I would like to try this on. I am not a huge fan of window treatments in general. They get dusty and dirty and what’s the point in having a window if you are going to just cover it up? But our house is also on a busy street (both in vehicle and foot traffic), so not using something for privacy is out of the question. This seems like the perfect compromise!
