Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorite people; she was so classy and very intelligent and always very modest. I tried to draw the Audrey Hepburn picture that Fred Astaire took at the beginning of "Funny Face." It's been a long time since I've drawn so it was a little rough, I need a little more practice, but I'm really happy with how the eyes turned out.
"I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."

This is just about as close to heaven as you can get: cheesecake stuffed strawberries. They might be one of my favorite treats, and it only took about 30 minutes to make.
- 2 quarts fresh strawberries
- 1 box Jello No Bake Cheesecake
- Graham cracker crumbs
- Chocolate for drizzling
- Wash berries and hollow out the centers
- Mix cheesecake according to directions. Put cheesecake into piping bag and fill each strawberry until slightly overfilled.
- Dip into crushed graham crackers to coat the top
- Drizzle with chocolate

My apartment needed a new summer center piece and what's more summery than pinwheels? I felt like I was back in first grade. I got the idea from http://juneberry-lane.blogspot.com/2011/06/tutorial-tuesday-diy-paper-pinwheels.html which is becoming one of my favorite blogs, I have so many new projects I want to do.
