Hi! It looks like it has been a whole week since I posted. Lots going on here…and Riley has been very sick the past 5 days. But she is finally starting to get better!
I do have 1 or 2 projects to share so stop back tomorrow and I’ll get a pic up. In the meantime, I thought I’d pop in and share some pics I took last week…before Riley got sick.
Here’s the outfit she’ll wear on Christmas day…just trying it on to make sure it’ll fit!
Riley says…”Ruff! (Take a break…relax…put on some Christmas music and enjoy this holy season.)” Have a good night!
….and so fun to watch. Look what’s been running and playing in my backyard…. :0)
Kelley sent me this blog award….thanks, Kelley! That was so sweet! :0)
Here’s what I found out about the award….
“This award is given to a blog that invests and believes in PROXIMITY – nearness in space, time and relationships! These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers!”The rule of the award is to now pass it on to another 8 people who demonstrate this spirit.”
So….here’s a few people who I chose to receive this award:
oops…I think that’s one too many…LOL. How can you stop? ;0) You can check out more great friends in my blogroll!
Guess what Santa brought!
Well, she was a bit late for Christmas, but a sweet present to ourselves anyway!
Now if only she will train quickly….*crossing fingers*. :0) If you have any tips, I’d love to hear them!
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family!
Ok, so below is a recipe page I did a few months ago. One of my favorite pies is a custard pie. I just called this Berry Custard because I use blueberries or raspberries. And if you are short on time, it can be baked in a baking dish without the crust- still yummy!
I used the House Mouse Pumpkin Pie image and just made the pie a different color. The fun decorative paper is by Flair Designs and I purchased it at All That Scraps. Christine has a ton of papers to choose from!
In case it’s difficult to read from the picture, here’s the recipe:
4 slightly beaten eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups milk
fresh or frozen blueberries or raspberries
1 T. flour
Blend the first four ingredients. Stir in the milk. Pour into a baking dish or unbaked pie shell and sprinkle with cinnamon. Shake berries in a bag with the flour and add to the custard. Bake @ 400° for 45 minutes. Let cool and then refrigerate.
stamps- House Mouse Pumpkin Pie and footprints by Hero Arts; paper- SU! Pumpkin and Choc. Chip, non-SU! Blue, Red, White, and Beige, dp- Flair Designs; ink- Palette Black; accessories- Stickles, Copic markers, Nestabilities, SU! Curly Label punch
Cyndi was so sweet and sent me this blog award! Thanks, Cyndi! Be sure to check out the wonderful cards on her blog here.
I think I am supposed to pick 5 others who inspire me. How do you pick just five? LOL.
OK, I’ll give it a try…
1. Lesa Rapp– she may have already been nominated but I just gotta give her a shout out again! Every month I look forward to seeing her creations on the ATS DT…I just love them all!
2. Michelle Boyer– Michelle and I became friends through the SCS Dirty Dozen and I am continually amazed at how her mind works. She is always coming up with something fresh and I love her style!
3. Anna Wight– Who doesn’t love Anna’s work? Seriously! And I am just loving her snowflake creations recently! Makes ya drool! ;0)
4. Cheryl Rowley– I don’t get to blog hop as often as I like and I need to visit Cheryl more often than I do. Her coloring is just gorgeous and her creations are simply adorable!
5. Tracy Harp– Tracy comes up with some sweet projects and I have enjoyed seeing the delicious gifts she has created this year from her own kitchen. I’m sure her family will love them!
Thanks again, Cyndi!
