Spoils of war and Project life

I managed to get to the Hobby Lobby sale yesterday 50% of of thousands of scrapbooking paper!
I got Basic Grey Sweet threads and the colorful life featuring Donna Estabrook(DCWV)
I also branched out and got Me and My Big Idea Mambi papers they are truly bright like I like. That's
the project life binder I got but I decided to use some of my Basic Grey
paper(Basic) and Kand Company Tags.  The pink flowers are Jolee Boutique's stickers and Tim Holtz acrylic stamps were on sale. too.(Last week Tim Holtz and Jolee's Boutique was on sale. I really got to stay out of this store. Is there a Scrapper's Anonymous?  I probably resist the idea of rehab like any true  junkie would..   But I can pretend that I want help . My only true justification is that I can use the papers in my art journal.  The kids will love these albums later blah blah blah.....) I got the Amber Project Life I am working on the pages and next week I will develop the pictures so consider this my work in progress.

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…
