This year I wanted to do something creative outside of my norm. On New Year’s eve ‘Capture Your 365’ floated by and I hit enter and signed up. One photo a day with a prompt for a theme with some wonderful encouragement. My friends Cindy & Dennis are also taking photos with me. I’m writing a journal for each day. This post will be linked on my right sidebar and will have all 365 photos.
I some how came across this book by Kate McDermott. My favorite dessert in the world is pie crust. Yep, I have to have some filling with it, but really its the crust that I’m after. I have a friend learning to make pies and I’m a wee bit jealous.
When I spotted this I did the Kindle book sample, which i do for most things I want to read. Kate teaches pie making, a LOT of pie making. And in her book she weaves a bit of life into her pies.
This got me to thinking.. maybe I can learn to MAKE amazing pies.
My interest in Elvis Presley started way before I acquired this pile of fabric. Back when I was a teenager in the 70s listening to the Armed Forces radio station. I was just a kid when Elvis died, but like many, that was just the beginning of being a loyal fan.
Do you avoid purchasing certain things? I tend to get used to an item and when I need to replace it or get more, they don’t make that anymore. My recent ‘thing’ was new sheets.
I needed to order sheets…like a few years ago. I didn’t’ necessarily like what I had, but I had them. And I wanted something better but how do you know what is better?
Then I remembered that my Sister-in-law has the nicest sheets on the beds at their home. When we stayed there earlier this year I told myself to ask Whitney what brand, hoping they were not super pricey.
It’s kind of fun to take one day each week and write about something I thought about during the week. This week it was time to buy a new car for travel. Our last car had been on the road for over 5 years of trips.
As a 6th grader my baby sitter told me I NEEDED to see Gone with the Wind. She warned me it was a little long, but so worth it. With great anticipation, I walked to the theater, bought myself a ticket and watched the show, with intermission, all by myself.
I’ve been exploring what is at Bluprint, and it’s pretty exciting! I give you the lay of the land and a few of my favorite finds
If you have been familiar with Craftsy they were purchased by the NBC network awhile ago.
They are changing the system to create a new online Lifestyle site called ‘MyBluPrint‘ that has put learning in a format more like you see on TV, but without the commercials, which is pretty darn neat!
Over the next few months I’ll do a series of article to highlight features, let’s get started!
