Shimelle Blogging for Scrapbookers:Prompt 3 Favorite Things

Good morning I just wanted to share Prompt 3 which was list some of your favorite things so
here's a few of mine:
1. Paper Corner Rounder-  I rarely create a scrapbook page without this and the Paper
Studio version is very inexpensive.Hobby Lobby carries that brand and you can order online.
2.TjMaxx-as far as retail stores this is still my absolute favorite I am wearing a Liz Clabourne top
I paid like 5 bucks for!
3.Chocolate- I have n't met a form of it I don't like Hershey's kisses, coffee creamer,  Twix candy bar etc...
now don't get me wrong this isn't all day everday but whatever they put in chocolate makes me
incredibly happy .
4.Inspiration Everywhere  This is Michelle Rydell's blog , she does alot of Scrapbooking, Art Journaling etc;;
she is a Design Team Member of Scrapping The Music and always has different projects to share.  You should really check her out.
5 The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath I am intrigued by the fact that women in the 50's had such limited options
in terms of what they could do with their life it was expected of them to be a wife, which wasn't a bad
thing , but the main character clearly wanted a writing career and that fact that it wasn't supported by society
is interesting.  Today in the this century the only thing stopping  woman from a writing career would be her own doubts, not pressure to conform .  Well I'll be back to share later in the meantime stay gold.

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.

I wish I had started with this and the One pot cookbook back in 2012 when I had the health scare this would have made eating healthy a whole lot simpler. I will be looking over both so I…
