My First Homemade Bread

First a card: I used PTI stamps and the pattern paper is a little bit of leftover from one of my digital papers from Shabby Pickle Designs. The colors came from Dawn McVey. I could have made all sorts of cards/scrapbook pages all day today but I wasn’t motivated. Instead I just lounged around with the girls. As for the bread… Check this baby out: I am doing really good with my 2010 goal to make more food from scratch. The above wheat bread is really delicious. I got this one from AllRecipes and the 500+ people who gave this

More Christmas Joy

Message from Emma: hi  ms   dawn hugs emma. And… here’s M holding my card for me. I used Dawn McVey’s colors and stamps from PaperTrey for this card (there’s a line mark on M’s cheek. It’s a pen mark. She said she wanted to look like a cougar). Here’s a better picture of it. The center of the ornaments were embossed using American Craft Zing.

NOTE: I have a blog candy! No, not that one above. The above was what M made… all by herself!! She did this at the after school program yesterday. It’s a picture frame for a picture that her little penpal, Sofi, made. Who doesn’t know Sofi? If you don’t you’re missing out! She’s Cathy Pascual‘s little girl.

She’s been published many times and have designed for many folks. She’s currently a fashionista as SIStv,

Card and Stuff

I walked into my craft room the other day and I was so surprised to see it nice and tidy. Even the desk was clean!

There’s Something About Dawn

That made my kid, Miss M, want to go home with her. I mean I guess if I were a kid who loves to stamp I’d want to go home with Dawn too so that I could play in her studio {::SMILES}. Today the girls and I went to Kansas City to do some errands and have lunch with Dawn McVey (if you’ve been living under a rock she design for Papertrey Ink). A little while back we got to emailing each other because we found that we’re both foodies and we have a thing for Europe or traveling in
