Valentine's Day

Valentines Day is just around the corner and I have been making a few things.  I've kinda gone Owl Crazy as of late and I'm using Owls in my Valentine Card Designs.  Enjoy and Thanks for letting me share my creations with you.  This Owl Design was done from my Silhouette Cameo.  I just love this machine!

Mushroom Melt Grilled Cheese. A Must Try Recipe!!

Last night I fixed the most awesome grilled cheese ever!!  Seriously!  I found this via Pinterest the latest craze on the internet, where you can pin things of interest to boards and forever go back to pull them up.  So, I pinned this to my recipe board and finally tried it.  I can't rave enough about it.  It is Delish!!  For my take on this fab recipe I used Marsala Wine to deglaze the pan and I also used both Fontina and Gruyere Cheese.  Of course I'm a lover of Garlic and used much more.

Recycled Magazine Tree Decor - Not Just For Christmas.

Tree made from Magazines that you may have lying around.  A great way to re-purpose them.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.   It was a busy last couple of months and now I'm ready to get started on new projects.  Today I completed my first Coffee Sleeve Mini.  I used various coffee sleeves that I found at various locals.  I only used 5 sleeves since more would not have fit on the binder rings that I had available.  The paper line I chose for this particular project was Teresa Collins "World Traveler", which has a kinda of Vintage feel to it; and of course the colors are always beautiful.  I also had a few small envelopes that I slipped in between some of the sleeves and added a tag to each one.

This is the front cover of the Coffee Sleeve Mini with the binder rings decorated in various ribbon pieces and I just use a hair band to hold it together. 

Front Cover just from a different angle.

This particular Coffee Sleeve has lots of possibilities for smaller pics or even journaling. 

 This is another sleeve like the one above.  Love all the many flaps!!
