Work = no crafting...

I had a bust day at work today. Ended up being in charge - ugh! not part of the plan, but it went OK. I brought my new SU summer mini, and was planning to look at it. No time - not even an extra minute to look at my new mini :(

Hopefully tomorrow night I will be able to get some work done on the invites for my in-laws party. Should really get them to my SIL by Sunday. Really, my 4 days on mean I have no hope of crafting. On the plus side, I went for a run after work.

Guasacaca - Venezuela's tastiest sauce

Guasacaca is probably one of the finest sauces ever invented. It has a cool name that rolls off the tongue and a taste that makes your mouth go ñum ñum!

It's a simple but staggeringly tasty combination of avocado, fresh parsley and coriander, green bell pepper, onion, garlic, salt, oil and vinegar.

And it's quick and easy to make. You just throw the ingredients in the blender and whoozh

2 days in a row!!

So, I am pretty proud of myself. Blogging 2 days in a row. Yay me!! Today was calm and mostly quiet. DD and I went to visit an old friend and her new baby. We even found a dress for me to wear to my inlaws 50th anniv. All in all a success... no crafting though, and I still have 15 more invites to do for the anniversary... how do I get myself into these things?? I guess I need to get cracking.

Today I am sharing some money holders I mad at Christmas time. Only one actually held mosey, the other 2 held tickets and a gift card. They were fun and very easy to make. I found a tutorial on You Tube created by a SU demo named Dawn. It was really easy to follow! The stamps are SU on all of them, and the paper is CTMH.

Back to work in the morning - ugh!!

April?? Seriously?

Really?? April? I may be the worst blogger in the world. 3 months between posts, and for no reason!! What can you do? I have bought/ recieved some wonderful crafting things. I got some great cartridges, and a new scoring board - martha stewart... love it so far! It has scor marks EVERY 8th of an inch... awesome! Though a bit dizzying, honestly :)

My sons 8th birthday was yesterday, all related pics are still on my camera, so None to show today. Instead I will post a few pics from by daughters 4th birthday, back in February. These were all quick and fun projects to make - well except for the cake, we won't talk about that ;)

The little goody bags using Hello Kitty Greetings.

The Abby Cadabby birthday cake I made - we won't discuss how much work was involved :)

The inside of the card I made for DD - stamps from CTMH...

The front of the card I made for DD - I love Hello Kitty Greetings!! The stamp is also from CTMH - can't remember what it's called, but it's a great stamp set with cupcakes. I love it!!
So, that's it for today. I'll try to be back again soo, to post some more things that I have created.

A la prochaine...
