8.11.06


This is my style. Lots of patterned papers. Groups of embellishments. Fun colors. Always inked edges, though not always messy ink. Lately I found myself straying away from my style on my work...and I was in a major creative funk. And now I know why. I need to stay true to myself and that feeling of "yes, that's it" when I finish a page. There's nothing like it!

Friday morning my sister and her husband are finding out if they are having a boy or a girl in December. :) There are six grandchildren on this side of the family. Five boys, one girl. Poor Jane needs a gal pal! We will be happy and blessed as a family either way. We grew up as 4 sisters, no brothers...so these boys are so foreign to us! :)


Have you seen the cool new GAP ads on TV? Love them! Lots of doodling and swirlies all over the place. You can see the way cool commercial HERE.


Oh...and you're welcome for the chocolate peanut butter dessert recipe. I had no idea how many diets I'd ruin! :) Noah and I made homemade pancakes for breakfast this morning. The look on his face when he flipped the pancake over all by himself was SO precious. We sprinkled chocolate chips into some of the pancakes, but I think he ate more chips than he sprinkled on the batter. :D Breakfast is one of my favorite meals to prepare when I have a long time in the morning. (and a big crowd helps, too!)

Here is a recipe you can prepare the night before and pop into the oven the next morning. How yummy to smell this baking on a Saturday morning!

Baked Blueberry French Toast (love Steph's recipes!)

Have a blessed weekend!
