One in a minion

Lots of new dies were put on the shopping page this week, and this Tattered Lace Puff Ball was one of them.  My good friend Eileen has been helping us get caught up in the store this week, and today I told her to take a little scrappy break and try out this die.


I did not capture the stardust stickles that she put on the tips of the outside row of puffs nor did I capture the Smooch on the center to make it shine … but this picture gives you a good idea of how nice it looks.


The card is gorgeous, and just so you all know … the inside is finished too.  *wink*


During the hustle and bustle of updating the shopping page, changing the advertising sign outside, shipping packages, etc., my friend Audrey came in the store with a little present for me.  At the little crop we had on Saturday, everyone got such a kick out of me giggling at the minions.  If you know me, you know I love minions … and Audrey said she saw this on Pinterest and had to make one for me.  Isn’t it the CUTEST ever!  I love it Audrey, thank you so much!

I don’t know what your weekend has ahead for you, but if you are around, please do drop in.  If you are too far away, please do keep checking here for our daily blog posts.  We enjoy seeing and hearing from each and every one of you.

9:16 and in need of a blog post

So here I sat with nothing to post for today, and remembered something my massage therapist, (who looks like Shakira), told me - 3 ingredient peanut butter cookies.  And … gluten free.


So, I whipped out the peanut butter, sugar and eggs and got busy.  It wasn’t really that difficult, as you can see, and before too many minutes passed …


these were on the cookie sheets ready to go in the oven.  Now, you see, my husband was nattering talking to me in the background, and in such need of a cookie fix, that I didn’t have time to watch the video.


And yeah, look what happened, this is how mine turned out.  If I had not been under so much pressure, *grin* … I would have watched the video here and realized that I should have pressed the cookies down with a fork and they would have looked like this …


Anyway, the cookies were very soft in the middle, but still very good … kind of reminded me of a Reece’s peanut butter cup … minus the chocolate.

Ding a ling - incoming texts …

And just as I thought I was going to have another day without showing something scrappy, in comes a couple of texts from a friend who is making some very cool Christmas presents.  She was in the store today picking out papers and I asked her if she would send me some pictures.  Perfect timing.


Now isn’t this a cool Christmas gift … and using up paper scraps … doesn’t get any better than that.

The frames are 11″x 14″ , the mats are cut to fix 10″x 12″ and the squares are all 2″.


This one she made out of recycled Christmas cards … isn’t it fabulous!  Thanks Brenda for sharing your talent and creativity with us!


Three Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies

Recipe makes 1 dozen
1 cup peanut butter
1 cup white sugar
1 egg


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine the peanut butter, white sugar and egg. Mix until smooth.
Drop spoonfuls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 6 to 8 minutes.
Do not overbake!
These cookies are best when they are still soft and just barely brown on the bottoms.
