It's WOYWW's 5th Anniversary!
Oh my gosh! Julia has had this fabulous desker blog tour going on for 5 years!! Many in the WOYWW group are doing an ATC swap and there was even a special crop last Saturday, but in England. As for me, I can only show you my desk. Yep, I'm not doing anything special EXCEPT for getting ready for our youngest son to arrive tomorrow from Wyoming for a 3 day visit and to see his grandma (on Hospice care) for the last time.
Not a lot going on here. I have been working on my "Christmas in July" class which will be about gift card holders. Here you can see 2 almost completed ones - a stocking and a mitten. I still have at least 1 more to make and am debating a Christmas tree or a card. Hmmmm....
And I did manage to get some cards done this past weekend along with cleaning and some treat making.
I seen a card similar to this over on Pinterest and decided to try it. I used to do a lot of scoring on my cards back when I purchased my Scor-Pal but now that it is hidden under my kraft mat it's kinda like "out of site out of mind".
Here you can see the score lines a bit better. The text on the label is from a set by Hero Arts called "Celebrate Everyday". The words were all one line but I cut them apart to make them fit my label.
And my treat....
These are Sea Salt Caramel Rice Krispie bars. There is a bit of a story behind them. On the day I was helping dad take mom to the hospital this past time we stopped at Carl's Jr in Sahaurita, AZ. This is a fast food place and we do like their burgers. Anyway, I was telling dad about how I didn't much like their Sea Salt Caramel milk shakes and the guy behind us in the line said that I would just LOVE these bars! Well, we chatted and he gave me his card with his email addy and told me to write him for the recipe. I did, got the recipe and here they are. I took them to church last Sunday evening for a "snack-luck" (small version of a pot luck dinner) and they were a hit! I had about 5 bars left over. I'll add the link to the recipe on my next WOYWW post.
So now pop over to the Stamping Ground and check out all the fabulous desks! I celebrated this auspicious occasion by having a pedicure (I have beautiful iridescent turquoise polish on my toes) and getting my hair trimmed. What are you doing?
