Remember Way back When...

I first started this post in 2011...well I finally finished my paper topiary as part of a clean up and clean out of my scraproom - those photos to come soon after I get rid of my last little pile of stuff!

Fortune Frame

What do you do with all those fortunes from your take out Chinese? Glitter and glue them to an inexpensive picture frame of course! Add a couple felt flowers and you have your favorite fortunes preserved.

Frame (Michael's)
Handmade felt flowers
Fortunes (various Chinese restaurants)

Creative in the Kitchen

We have been trying one new recipe every week or so. This week was meatball tortilla soup from the Oct 2011 issue of Cooking Light, you can find the recipe here. A nice smoky heat and very yummy!

Happy Birthday to Me!

I came home on my birthday to a shiny new Cricut Expression 2! It has a bit of a learning curve to use since everything is digital instead of using the keypads like the old models, but so far so good. It has some great features that let you cut much thicker materials. I can't wait to put this to the test!

What I want 4.0

Continuing our annual tradition, we all got together to make our "goal" boards. This year my board certainly had goals on it but is more of just a reminder of the important things in life and all about LOVE.

Pinterest Anyone?

I just added a new button to follow me on Pinterest and am testing a Pin It button here to see about making it easy to pin any images I post.
