Inspiration Corner Amy Tangerine and Karen Gruenberg's blog

I realize these two blogs may not be the newest but lately they have really been inspiring me.
First Amy's blog  I love the way blog itself is uncluttered, bright and funspirited.  I discovered this
during the Big Idea Festival that Big Pictures had  in August..  I am also looking forward to taking the self
paced class taught by her called "Get Your Creative Juices Flowing" over at Big Pictures. It's only $17
and includes 3 videos but first I have to finish off the other ones I have paid for!

There is also Karen's blog . I am always glad to see another mother trying to fit in writing , art journaling and
scrapbooking into her everyday life.  Visutally speaking I am in love plus her schedule is posted so you know what
to expect  and when which I think is awesome!  There is a trick or treat blog hop going on over there. Her
self paced class "Embracing Imperfection" is free I will use this for a future art journal ( of course it can be
a mini album as well)
Well I have not recovered fully from my overload of Toffee Bars I made last night and the chocolate granola cereal I had this afternoon. (Yes HEB makes chocolate granola cereal)  Until next time 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 am very pleased with vegetarian main dishes.We are not vegetarian or vegan just a busy Mama/college student trying to get my growing kids to eat more vegetables. 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…
