Inspiration corner:The other cool chics

 "Creativity takes courage"  Henri Matisse.   In honor of women this month I'd like to acknowledge all the ladies who have really inspired my
scrapbook and art journal pages,lately

1http://www.clubcreatingkeepsakes.com/  I am always inspired by their enthusiasm no matter what time day or night, if I need to have a conversation about scrapbooking or need to see some really goodscrapbook pages I usually stop by here first.

2.http://www.milliande.ning.com/  As you have probably noticed by my sidebar  I have fallen in love with Ning groups!Milliande is different in that it's a community of women who are serious about that not judging
,since I am just starting out with the art journaling ,I felt like I needed an environment of nuturing to really "grow" my creativity.  There is also a group for women interested in photography as well and mixed media
so it feels like home for me.

3.http://www.guttergirlz.ning.com/  this is an extension of the Gutter girlz blog the prompts are every 15th and 30th of the month.  What I enjoy  the most is the fact that if you have a layout with a twist or try a new technique
this is the place for it(It's also art journaling but you can do either or I have seen both  posted by the members)
4.http://www.soul-scrappers.ning.com/  this group is fairly new but already has over 400 members .  I can easily
see why they have video tuturials, challenges, and a 15 member team to put all this together.  Talk about friendly within  30 min.  of me getting in  I had like 3 welcome messages!

My cookbook addiction

Hello my name is Cheryl and I'm addicted to really ,practical cookbooks! Yes I just posted on another Weight Watchers cookbook. I have no interest in the point system none whatsoever. This little factoid is how you know I just love buying, collecting and maintaining an extensive cook book collection. I only paid the $2.00 plus shipping and handling and got a real bargain! This is organized more like a traditional cookbook  soup and starters,breakfast and brunch,poultry,yeast breads,quick breads etc...I was a little disappointed with the slow cooker section.I use my slow cooker every week and was hoping for a little more to choose from.
