Menu Planning

It seems I have a bit of a cookbook obsession. Not making the recipes, just collecting the books.
I've decided to choose one book a week, this one was a random grab, and make my favorite recipes.
This way I won't feel too guilty about buying even more. I just know that I will.

I like Giada's style, many of her dishes are quite healthy and not the heavy kind of Italian fare, although that is my favorite. If I come across something amazing, I will share it with you.
Hoping to blog more, resurrecting this site because it is already here and I love the name.
Be well and I hope the coming year is filled with so many lovely things for you. Peace, joy, family, love, and good health.

Let the decorating begin!

This tree is for Billy's love of The Nightmare Before Christmas. It definitely needed it's own space, the ornaments were so out of place with the angels and crystal :)

Celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Harry Potter with my desktop tree. I made some ornaments for it this year and have ideas for a few more if I have the time. I got the Gryffindor scarf at platform 9 3/4 in King's Cross Station, London. A fun memory for 2018!

Some ornaments I made with bits and bobs of things.

Harry Holidays!

Lawn Fawn Caramel Apple

Mmm, fall is delicious and smells SO good. Caramel, apples, pumpkin spice- I love these things.
Lawn Fawn Caramel Apple stamp set with matching dies and large stitched apple die were used along with beige card stock and an unknown piece of designer paper from my stack of pre-cut 6x6 pages. I had ridiculous amounts of paper so I cut a bunch of it for gifting and some for myself. Working on my craft room is always a work in progress... Too many supplies and not enough time.
This card was made for the LAWNFAWNATICS mood board challenge and the Splitcoast daily to use fruit.
