paper from Die Cuts with aView and Why I scrapbook (part 1)

 I am taking advantage of those 40% coupons from Hobby  Lobby and bought this stack from DCWV called

all  about me .  I have been trying to remind myself why I scrapbook.  I am much busier now but I still want to

capture the everyday and maybe even al little of the mundane.This album will be a year in review for 2010 that way I can use the same paper line and it will have a cohesive look.  I love that I really don't have to have
a sketch for alot of it it already has journaling spots , a space for the photo, , it tkaes some of the guess work out.   I use to be the one who scoffed at album kits, other folk's sketches any little short cut that didn't originate from you.  If there was such a thing as being a creativity snob , then I was truly  the epitime of one.
Now I realize that I can't endure the thought of letting these goofy moments that my kids seem to  have an abundance of, go by without me to preserve them for all time. (Well maybe  for blackmail but mostly for laughs).  So I will be back with another album kit and some of the other reasons I scrapbook my kids are about to cross over into the mom he hit me zone .

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…
