Red, White & Blue Skittles

I love Skittles.
The best part is making a picture.  I always think I'm an artist with a bag of skittles.
I found these for the Memorial Day weekend and trust me after taking a picture, I was eating them. 
With all of my doodling I always find myself making clouds and flowers.
My go too, along with that house I draw every time with flower gardens and the perfect tree.
I was so excited to make clouds with Skittles.

Hope you have a great three day weekend.

Fruit salad & French Toast

I'm not sure that three kinds of is really a salad but, I'm calling it a fruit salad.
I love french toast.  I always love to make it with different bread, it gives it a different taste every time.

My friend who is doing this salad every day is going on vacation with no internet so, I guess I get the weekend off!

I hope your thinking about your next salad.

Salad day 2

As you can see I'm a lazy cook.
I love these salads in a bag.
They are tasty and it's easy. 
I made taco's tonight with this chopped salad.
Not a bad meal.

Have you tried this challenge?


 JAM means "just add more".
ATC means "artist trading card".  There are three that come in a plastic card holder, they measure 2 1/2" X 3 1/2".
Time to get crafty.
 How you do this is, one person starts this game with three cards and put something on it.  They put their name on the back so we all three know who started it also you can put what you put on it too.
Then they send it out.
I am now the second person.
I need to add something to it (crafty) then put my name on the back and send it to my friend.
This is what I came up with.
Some Washi Tape that looks like grass and some paw prints.
I think it's cute.
On the back I put my name and into the mail it goes to one of my friends who will finish it and she will keep one and send it to the person on the top of the list. She will keep one and send the third one to me.
All three of us get one!

A salad for 30 days

My blogging friend Jan is having a salad every day for the next 30 days.
Sounds like something easy to do until, you take a photo of it and write your thoughts too.
Jan & I share some of the same things, we are day's apart for celebrating our birthdays, we walk almost every day, we take pictures of random things but, don't think it odd & we enjoy eating salads.
Salad's don't always have to be green!

June Photo A Day

How many will I take this month.
I love having handwritten on my birthday!
I love to hand write.
I love this pink camera, wonder if it's real or just a toy.
Some of these have been done before.
It's still fun playing!

Share a Coke

At Last.
Two simple words that say so much.
Coke has a new look to the bottle, song titles.
I'm trying to stop drinking these but, it is not possible.
I was in need of a pick-me-up and this is what did it for me!
I really need to change the table cloth. I love the Kentucky Derby, I need to find a project to use this material.  Yes, I cheated, I didn't make it a real table cloth, I just put it on a white one and called it done. I can remember my Mom doing this.  I wonder if her Mom did it too.  I'm sure my Dad's Mother never did it, she had a way of always having everything perfect, nothing undone. I remember she never walked out of the kitchen with a dish in the sink. That doesn't happen around here. Somethings in my life just aren't that important, maybe I should work on that this week.  No dishes in the sink when I wake up, now that a project in it self.
Look what I mad this week, Oh so yummy.

Let's Celebrate you today

 I fell in love with this paper and at the store I thought it was gray. With my reading glasses on I realized it's really light blue.'s a blurry feeling.

This will make a great birthday card!

I love the butterflies.
 It gives it a happy feel.

  Not the feeling I'm getting with this computer today.

Can't wait to see where the words will land.

Strawberry dessert

Doesn't this look like something your Mother would make for a holiday?

I made this once before but, like so many other things in my life, I lost the recipe.

Found this one on a cooking blog.
 When I went to buy frozen strawberries I didn't look to close at the writing on the bag
It's better to have sliced strawberries.

So,after mixing up the jello, while it was hot I put in the strawberries and it was so much easier to cut them.
 Crushing pretzels is always fun to do in a baggie.

After mixing the butter and sugar together you put this in the oven to cook for ten minutes.

I found if I do this first and wait till it cools before doing the other layers is a better idea.
Whipping these three together, I found that it is better to have the Cool Whip not frozen.  Some how it folds in better.

Layer these up and put in the refrig to mold and it's a tasty dessert.

What did you make lately that reminded you of your Mother?

Let's pick a color

 This is my front door.  This rental house that I live in needs some color.
This front door needs a personality.
So, I went to that wonderful store to look at paint.
I found a can that has a price of $46.99.
Oh believe me that can will not be put on this door.
I really love "Red" doors.
A blue door would be nice.
I would really like to have a purple door like maybe egg plant color. 
Then there is color's that looks like a flower pot.
Or that dark teal.

I really don't know which one to pick.
I usually pick for the name.

What color do you like best?

Color Throw Down #391

 Color Throw Down is a challenge.
The colors this time are: pink, light blue, orange & peach.
It starts on Wednesday and ends on Monday.
The only problem I had was..there is a time zone and well, after making this card I realized I was late.
So I didn't get to enter my card so, I made a few more.
 This one has a little more blue in it and a less peach.
I like it. It's simple.
I love the big flower in the middle.
This would be great for a 10 minute challenge. 
 This one is a favorite.  I love the purple.
It's almost fancy.
I was trying to do more blue and it got a little carried away I think.
Now that I have 8 friends who I exchange with monthly, this one will go out to one of them.

What have you been doing lately?

I made bread

This is going to take some practice.
These have beer in them, not my favorite beverage.
I put cut's in one and left the other one just a blob.
It took some time to make.
This isn't something you wake up in the morning thinking you will have bread for dinner. You mix the beer, yeast & rye flour together and leave it over night.  Then you knead it the next day.
It does make the house smell like a bakery.
Now I can say..I made bread!
