I was happy to find that blue skies were back this morning. There isn't much color in this country as it is, so blue skies are much needed for a cheery disposition.
When I can't decide what to do craft-wise, I turn to baking. I'm not sure if that is a good or bad thing, but it makes me feel like I accomplished something out of the ordinary for the day. This evening I made No Bake Cookies using my Aunt Claire's recipe.
She wrote the recipe down for me many years ago and, as you can see, it has been used a lot (guess I'm pretty messy when I'm baking). The only problem here is the dry air causes them to set up much quicker than I can drop them by the spoonful onto the waxed paper. My kids like them either way so it's all good.
Finding any kind of crafting magazine around here is hit or miss so I was very happy recently to find an issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors..
I have a new game plan when it comes to crafting: to use what is in front of me; finish what I've started; work on something every day. I have so much stuff all over the place and just need to find use for it all.
Speaking of finding a use for everything. You know I have this thing with recycling, right ?? Well, I recently bought a purse that was stuffed with crumpled up papers. They should have advertised "free gift with purchase" because now I have a stack of neatly folded paper that will be used for gift wrap.
Most people would probably just pull it out and toss it, but not me. Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose!
Well, my whole afternoon was spent washing and cleaning and tidying up after school. Now it is time once again to call it a night. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Sunday! Best wishes for the week ahead. Friendship blessings, Tammy
