Peaches for Free.

Well you probably don't remember the peaches song but Hey, I do.
Anyway I had 7-8 buckets of peaches off 2 of my 3 little trees and I have been frantically trying to take care of them. Sunday I made peach muffins. Yesterday I froze about 12 bags with 4 cups in each,bottled 30 jars for our food storage. Today so far I have made 3 peach pies- yes with homemade crust YUMMMMM! and now I am getting geared up to make about 8 peach cobblers- in which I will be giving to friends and neighbors as I don't want to see another peach for a while. So if any more peaches come off our trees I will be handing them out to anyone who drops by.

Forgot a few!

Well I am just unpacking from last weeekends trip and I realized I forgot a few projects that I made. Last year after Halloween I bought a bunch of foam pumpkin cutouts on clearance. I figured I could make some albums with them. Here's a few with just a hint of what I will do with them. No pictures are on any yet.

Last weekend projects

Well I did finish a few things this last week. I decorated some mini mailboxes, I finally put the photos in my "I Am" album but I still haven't figured out how to bind it properly. And I used paper, paint, mod podge, ribbon and flowers to dress up a naked album. I also made a mini album for visitors to sign in for our condo but of course I left it up there and forgot to take a picture of it(and it was the cutest of all) Well I will try to remember to take a picture of it next time I'm there.

Welcoming Fall

I made this wall hanger with the new kit Sweet September by Krystal Hartley at Sweet Shoppe Designs. It's on sale today so go and grab it.

I know, I know enough of the scrapping lingo attached to everything. Very cheesy but hey that's me. Anyway I got back from my scrapbooking retreat yesterday and fun was had by all- well I guess I can't speak for them all- but hey, I had fun. I organized my zillion pictures that I saved up for the past year and they spanned a two year period(yikes). I went for a two hour walk with my sister. I tried not to eat anyone elses snacks---I brought some healthier choices-raw almond, craisins, yogurt covered raisins and a few dark chocolate bites. Finished a mini book. Used paper, paint and mod podge to redo an album. Made a mini album for the condo so visitors can sign. and then I made some Halloween albums out of fun foam.(I'll post pics of these later)
While watching some of the best movies ever made. Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Breakfast Club, Ferris Buelers Day Off, How to Loose a Guy in 10 Days, well it goes, on and on. You get the picture. I took some pics of the fun girlies that came to the retreat- hope I didn't get someone with their mouth open- just kidding.

Hi Ho Hi Ho It's off to Scrap I Go!

I'm getting ready to head out of town for my first scrapbook retreat weekend at our condo. We have about 20 crazy girls ready to get some scrapping done along with eating a lot of snacks, watching a ton of 80's movies, telling tons of crazy stories an NOT getting a ton of sleep. I'll take some pics to share with you on Monday. I will be doing more retreats with this same group in Feb/March but if you live around the SL area and we have enough we can start another group too. Well, off to the gym and then endless errands so I will be ready to leave tomorrow.
TTFN that's "ta ta for now" for you non speakers. LOL
