The Big Idea Workshop(Big Picture Classes)

Today is the first day of the workshop  with Amy Tan as the instructor for the day and the word prompt is
share.There is a template and a prize if you submit your layout  to the gallery.Here's the  link to Big Idea Workshop and it's free . I also like the fact that you may get to see an instructor's style of teaching just in case
you were thinking of taking another one.  I made a little mini album last week so I could just decorate the pages once the workshop started. The cover is Die Cuts With a View and the inside paper is Basic Gray, letter stickers from American Crafts and the epoxy letter stickers were from Creative Imaginations,Acrylic stamp and brads from Paper Studios.  Thank  you God that this scanner of mine still works.  Stay tuned for the recipes I am doing something Italian.

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.
