Big Picture Classes:Permission to live a Creative Life by courtney Walsh(self paced)

I am loving this class so far . I guess I do better with a self-paced course because I can come back to it when I have a moment.I went to Hobby Lobby today and  bought a 6x6 album with the 40% off coupon(You don't have to use a mini album for this class you can use  metal binder rings which I bought for another project I got the mini album because I could use the coupon)  , I am using paper from My Mind's Eye(lost and found) and
Thegirl paperie page one(or in my case the first few) we write our Creative Mantra
Here's my mantra:  I give myself permission to eat chocolate,be creative and enjoy the quiet moments, I forgive those who don't wish to support me. I realize that the more I nuture my creativity ,the more I have to 
give to my family.       I adapted this fromSacred Pampering Principles (It's not a religon just some affirmations
to encourage you to take care of yourself.

We're suppose to include a picture but those batteries I bought from HEB don't work!  I will not turn this into a rant about batteries instead I will press forward and improvise until I get some rechargable ones.  Don't forget there will be a Free Workshop  atBig Picture Classes From August 15-August 26th.I went ahead and signed up today so I wouldn't forget well I am off to either cook  or read or eat
maybe not in that order . Until next week 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…
