Weekend Plans 2/8 – 2/10

This week flew by in a flash! I woke up this morning thinking today was Thursday. I am so happy that I was wrong. I have a few upcoming projects to finish over the next few days. Hopefully I will have some time to spare for a baking adventure I have always wanted to try. Here’s what I have planned this weekend…

– I need to print out some of Ello Lovey’s Valentine’s Day cards and drop them off at the post office. I wrapped one of my crochet hearts around a card and gave it to my friend at lunch yesterday. She loved it!

– Thank you so much for the amazing response to my Sheepish Heart Bomb announcement yesterday! I can’t wait to see how many people participate. I hope little hearts are shared all over the world. I plan on finishing up my knit yarn bomb and crocheting a few extra hearts to hang around town on Valentine’s Day.

– Even though they look intimidating, I have always wanted to bake my own batch of macarons. I found this Martha Stewart raspberry macaron recipe and it looks like a good starting point for a beginner. I like that the filling is pre-made raspberry jam. Instead of worrying about the filling, I can focus on perfecting the temperamental macaron shells. Hopefully I will get some good macaron “feet”. :)

– I discovered the lovely Betty Magazine a few weeks ago and decided to order a copy. Betty is a beautiful fashion and lifestyle magazine based in London. It arrived in the mail yesterday afternoon and I can’t wait to flip through the inspiring pages over the weekend.

That’s about it! I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing weekend.

What do you have planned? Are you working on any special Valentine’s Day crafts? Have you started making hearts for the Sheepish Heart Bomb next week?

  1. I’m dying to try macarons, too! I picked up a kit on the giveaway table at work and still haven’t managed to go and get all the ingredients. Can’t wait to see how yours turn out!

  2. I’ve been debating making macaroons too, but haven’t yet been brave enough. I did make marshmallows, caramels and gummy candies though! I’m hoping to make some American Horror Story inspired body parts in jars – like the ones they show in the basement in the opening scene – and also make some under eye cream, a hair mask, some solid salt scrub cubes and natural deodorant.

  3. I’ve tried making macaroons once before and I did not do well. They tasted amazing (vanilla bean with nutella filling) but I need to work on my presentation! Good luck and have a super weekend :)

    Macaroons terrify me, you are one brave girl! On the Great British Bake Off (best show ever) they often have meltdowns over those pastel fiends!
    I’m very excited about the first artisan market of the year on Sunday, we are having a Chinese New Year celebration theme which should be fun. Have a great weekend :)

    I’ve been thinking about buying Betty lately. I’ve seen a lot of great reviews.


  9. Well, as usual, I will have to deal with my university classes on saturday morning, before going to work on the afternoon.

    But I try to enjoy my sundays as much as possible.
    I’m planning to plant some seeds, take pictures outside, bake some bread, go to the farmer’s market, knit a bit, and relax.

    Have a lovely week-end Meredith,


  10. I can’t get enough of your weekend plan photos! I’m going to be doing a little woolly love bombing, and plenty of reading by the fire on this grey day.

  11. Helen says:

    Looks like a lovely weekend, I’ve been to a big craft exhibition today with my mum which was both lovely and odd.
    I really like the way you display your activities

  12. lizy b says:

    So happy to find your blog today and be a new follower! Love the heart bombing…off to learn to crochet so I can bomb the elementary school! (that didn’t sound quite right did it?) 😉

  13. Good luck with the macarons. I really want to try making them, but they terrify me, so my house mate who lived in Paris for a while has said she will give me master class some time soon.
    I am severely tempted to do a bit of heart yarn bombing, even if it is just around my own house! Here’s hoping I get enough time to make some of your little hearts. Thanks for the pattern!

  14. Rhianna says:

    I’m so happy your friend loved the card! What a sweet touch to add a crochet heart! I plan on crocheting up some more today to spread around on Valentine’s Day! So fun! I hope the macarons turn out well for you! I wanted to make them as favors for our wedding, but the heat in Texas summers, as you know, is no friend for macaron baking! :)

    • meredith says:

      Yay! I can’t wait to see your crochet hearts.

      I know! I don’t think I will have much success if I try to bake a batch of macarons this summer.

  15. That sounds like a lovely weekend! Hope your Macarons turned out ok!

  16. If these are not available to the bearded dragon, they will suffer
    from metabolic bone disease. As lizards are fond of lying close to and
    basking, a mini log could possibly be installed. Even without the magical undertones, it must have been a pretty nifty sight.

  17. The benefits of Softwood Casement Home windows

    There are many different Window Installatio possibilities,
    whether you’re at the same time of creating a new home
    or perhaps you need windows to your existing home. Not only are there variations, such as casement windows, double hung and sash, but you can also
    get lots of materials from hard or soft wood to PVC, aluminium plus more.

  18. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward
    to your new updates.

  37. I drop a comment whenever I especially enjoy a article on a blog or I have something to contribute to the conversation. It’s triggered by the fire displayed in the
    article I browsed. And after this post One Sheepish Girl | Weekend Plans 2/8 – 2/10.
    I was excited enough to drop a thought 😉 I actually do
    have some questions for you if you usually do not mind.
    Could it be only me or do a few of these comments look like coming from brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting on additional online social sites,
    I’d like to keep up with you. Would you make a list every one
    of your communal pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or
    linkedin profile?

  38. There are many hotels that are situated across the
    street from the beach or within walking distance.
    Punta Gorda is situated about 30 miles north of Fort Myers.
    This curves around creating an enclosed, almost private feeling for
    this beach.

  39. Hurrah! In the end I got a webpage from where I be capable of actually take
    helpful data concerning my study and knowledge.

    Victoria Beckham said in a recent interview

    you call her ‘Posh’. Sex during periods is completely acceptable,
    as long as both people are consenting to the idea.

  41. Undeniably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to
    be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just
    do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined
    out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
