Hello! I hope you're staying warm. It's currently 3 degrees out, so I am not leaving this house.
It's been a busy week! Not for my art work of course.
Kevin got me roses for Valentine's Day, we just did Thai take out and watched a movie.
This past Wednesday was Kevin's birthday! He turned 24, I bought him a robe, which he liked, but I surprised him with making the Mendl's box and pastries.
I carved the logo out of linoleum, fortunately found pink paper and had red ink. It was really fun to make.
I was really pleased with the end result! They were actually pretty easy to make, the icing was probably the most difficult.
This is half the mess! Icing was literally everywhere, Kevin said they were very good! I would make them again. I wish I had a photo of one of the pastries cut it half so you could see the chocolate filling. I was in the kitchen all day because after that, I made flautas from Thug Kitchen for dinner, which were really good. I suggest everyone try a Thug Kitchen recipe, I have yet to be disappointed by them.

Everyone stay warm! It will be Spring soon...I hope!
