One of my favorites I hope you enjoy and share it too!
Most of you have no idea what my childhood was like, or my first marriage.
To me, this was the BEST commercial all night. I pray more women use this technique in the future and seek help.
Kay and I both have always taught our kids to call us if they were in trouble and "order a pizza". It would alert us they needed help and after giving us the address to find them we would go pick them up.
We all want to be healthy, but sometimes we are not sure how.
I share this product with you because it has taken away my husband Kay's arthritic pain in his hands within weeks of when he starting taking it. The trigger finger is also gone. MY Hip pain is gone and my son Ray's skin problem (dry patches all over his arms) is gone as well.

When I was a kid, my parents didn't have extra money. My dad was a disabled Vet and my mother with her good arm and bad arm (Polio took her left arm at age 20 in 1948- if I called her disabled to this day she would come back and slap me in the mouth lol) worked very hard to make ends meat.
I learned from Mom, how to make maple syrup from the recipe on the back of the flavoring bottle. I have taken that recipe and changed it to fit our family (no recipe, they are all over the internet). Yesterday I decided to make a very large batch and waterbath can it.
Here are my results
It resembles caramel topping! lol I WISH! I wanted it a bit thicker than what the box recipe makes so I added Clear Jel to thicken it, although this syrup tastes fabulous and is not runny - it has a bit of a texture to it- sort of gritty but not horribly so- due to the clear jel.
I kept out some for pancakes last night and we really love the flavor but I am going to try to find another way to thicken it, maybe cooking it down for a few hours to reduce the water content. I am not sure "when" I will be doing that but when I do, I will share details.
Now, Waterbath these jars for 7 minutes to seal the lids. I put a label on each lid with the date it was made so I always know how old it is. I can say this, it was easy, fun and WAY less expensive than buying it from the store and NO preservatives!
Today is paperwork day (Tuesday) ewwwww have I mentioned how MUCH I hate paperwork? lol and tonight the missionaries are here to eat supper with us! YAY! I have a pot of hamburger vegetable soup on the stove simmering. It smells yummy.
I am teaching a 10 yr old how to sew later this afternoon. She is such a sweetheart. When I asked her what she wanted to make she said "a bean bag". But, we will use rice because I have it open. I really don't want to open a bag of beans just for a bean bag. A rice bag will work just as good!
I hope you are having a wonderful and creative day, thanks for stopping by!
I love the My Paper Pumpkin Kits! This month- January 2015, we received This adorable Valentine kit:
I used it to create a card for the hubby- shhhhhhhhhh you cannot tell on me!
Each Monthly Paper Pumpkin Kit comes with a Cute Polymer (CLEAR) Stamp. These are lovely pliable clear stamps unlike any other on the market. I wasn't a clear stamp person until Stampin Up! Came up with the Photopolymer Stamps! WOW! I am using them ALL THE TIME now!
As you can see in the photo, there are 3 hearts. I layed them on my cardfront spacing them the way I wanted them and then.....
I layed our largest Clear Block over them and pressed to stick them to it.
I love being able to do this so that I don't have to stamp them 1 heart at a time and get them all spaced wonky that way! This way, I stamped once and it was done! A great timesaver! Especially when making more than 1 card. Had I wanted them spaced at a diagonal I would use the same idea. Lay them out on the card front where I want them and then stick the block to them and then ink and stamp!
I confess that at 5 am today I remembered I needed this project done to post- lol and at that time of day I wasn't thinking so clearly and put the stamp "to the ink" pad and by doing so, got those red ink pad marks on the clear block- UGH!
The BEST way to ink something like this is to lay the block on the table (do not hold it) with the stamps up and then use the ink pad to ink the stamps. This is an especially great method for inking up the larger stamp surfaces!
So to fix the mess, I used a paper towel sprayed with our stamp cleaner and removed the ink pad markings, thus taking away the ability to wiggle the block while stamping and have the ink pad ink show up on my cardstock when I didn't want it! The extra ink in the center of the heart I didnt worry about because I didn't press so hard for it to show up on the cardstock.
Most people use a foam mat under their clear stamps, I don't feel the need with Stampin Up Photopolymer Stamps. They stamp very clearly for me without it! Adding that foam under cardstock makes it easier to get that inside ink on cardstockand so does pressing the stamp to hard to the cardstock.
Here is the cardfront after I stamped in Memento black ink, the "you have my heart" stamp from the set. I added the White Baking Twine and tied a knot and adhered it to the Real Red Cardbase.- DONE in less than 10 minutes
Below is my finished card. I am sorry about the placement of the copyright required by Stampin Up- Gimp (the editing program I Use for the copyright) recently did an update and now the link where I used to be able to move the copyright around doesn't work. I am going to have to research it more to find out where they "hid" that ability (transform tools/move layer) within the program- I HATE it when MEN DO THAT! It surely doesn't make it any "easier" to use! I like simple and fun, not buried and frustrating computer programs!
This is a 6"x6" card using Whisper White and Real Red Cardstock, Real Red and Memento Black inks and our really cool White Bakers String. If this were going to a female instead of the hubby, I would add a rhinestone to one of the red hearts to girlie it up.
Here is the inside. I left it mostly blank so I can write something really mushy.........
It's so much fun to get the My Paper Pumpkin Kits and then find other ways to use either the papers or the stamps!
I hope you enjoyed this easy easy card and it inspires you to create something for your loved one!
I am undecided about an envelope at this time. It will take a 9.5" x9.5" piece of cardstock or paper to create one using our Envelope board. I dont like to use cardstock for envelopes, to me the cardstock is just to heavy and I am not sure if I have any heart designer paper. Although while typing we do have the Typeset designer paper with all the newsprint on it- that would make a really cute envelope! Guess I will have to do that later today and post the envelope tomorrow!
Thanks for stopping by today!
Recently, I received an email question about the difference between Memento Ink and Staz On, so I wanted to answer it here in case anyone else has the same question.
Personally I use only these 2 inks for my projects. I am not a fan of the Classic Black ink we also sell.
I hope this helps with the questions. I recommend from personal experience that when you order either of these ink pads, you also order the ink refill. I use my inks alot, and it is very handy to have the refill on hand at the time needed instead of waiting for an order to come in!

Wednesday I went to the local quilt shop Quilt Sampler and took a machine quilting class. It was a refresher class for me as before Katie was born in 1992 I owned an A-1 Longarm quilting machine with a 3'x10' table.
I sold that machine in 2004 (wishing I had been able to keep it) and I have such a pile of smaller quilts I decided I would see what new techniques are there- they are the same but the notions (gloves, wash away thread etc) are new! Just for information purposes, all my larger quilts are sent to a lady who lives here in Rogersville.
Here are photos of the class project- I need MORE PRACTICE but I am not ashamed to show them so that others know you have to start from someplace before you get any good- at least I am hoping that I improve! I think after baby quilt #40 I may show improvement! Our teacher Shannon mentioned many times that even the award winning professionals had to start somewhere! I never plan to enter any competitions. My quilting is for family and baby gifts for friends.
We were to bring quilting stencils- I took a dresden I echo quilted aorund the outside of the dresden- not great but I got the idea down- and I borrowed the meandering one (which I bought before I came home)
In that triangle background of the Sue, I just went back and forth in there to fill in the space- I like the look but it really needs some practice!
All the machine quilting minus the 2 center straight lines, are free motion quilting- in other words I hand guided it all myself either following a pattern I drew on the fabric, or in the case of the next one no pattern at all.
Now I admit that the unevenness of this square, I like! I will definitely be using that idea in the future.
Yesterday I decided to "practice practice practice" and machine quilted this baby panel that I have had for several years.,
So today I decided to make the other girl top into a quilt but I didn't feel as ambitious! All the lines are sewn with my walking foot attached! And again, I used my chalk to mark the center lines.
Not perfect but useable!
There are 2 boy tops that are very similar to these 2 that I still have to do. I am pretty sure they will be quilted more like #2 than #1 because I just want them done quickly so I can move along to other projects. When I have them stitched I will be sure to post photos- but they won't be quilted this weekend!
I share my quilting to show you that YES!!!!! YOU CAN DO IT~!
Stop trying for perfection and just get in and HAVE FUN!
