LAME! That sign started over our front door! Not only did the crazy wind blow down the sign into our neighbors yard but it also broke off the letters and frame! (yes, of course I had to take a picture!)
Geez! Apparently when the say its going to be windy THEY MEAN IT!

4. Add the mascarpone to the egg mixture and using a whisk, beat until well blended and velvety.
*Variations: Macerate fruit with sugar and use the liquid to dip your Pavesini with. Use the fruit to make layers alternating mascarpone/egg mixture, Pavesini soaked in the fruit juice and fruit.
*You can add liqueurs to the brewed coffee.
*Chocolate shavings can be added to the mixture and for topping.
* For a low fat variation, use ricotta instead of Mascarpone
* For those who can not have coffee, fruit juice, simple syrup or tea can be substituted

over my "vacation" and I grabbed a few really helpful ideas:
First thing i did was separate out all my "themed supplies" so that meant papers, embellishments, ribbons, everything! and each major theme got its own drawer. This way if I am working on any project that is themed I just pull out the appropriate drawer, I love this! I put together a little birthday project and card in no time! There was no "oh I think I have a little something birthday in with my ribbon or embellishments or whatever!" I knew exactly what I had because it was right in front of me, no more searching!
So now the fun part... DECORATING! working on a few decorative touches to give the studio some much needed eye candy! More pictures to come soon!
