Yesterday being stuck at my group home, with no place to go and nothing to do...because of the ice storm staff could not relieve me... I got my client all warm and toasty.. and content taking a nap and I set off to work...
I am an avid blogger and blog hopper...probably more blog hopper than blogger... but I always love to look at all the creative backgrounds on the blogs... the really cute once usually come from one certain website... Well I started thinking what if I used Aimee Asher clip art... I could have the cutest blog on the block!!
So I sat here and did my research... the html code I needed and the size of the images and such... I created sized or recolored and re posted until I got it just right!! And I did it!!

I love the new look of my creative blog... what do you think?

Christmas Cards

Created by ME....

Tuesday, November 25, 2008


As of TODAY I am a member of the Aimee Asher Design Team... What does that mean... it means I get FREE clipart to play with and make fun stuff with...!!

This does NOT mean that I have quit creating my own clipart... right now my life is so so so so busy that I don;t have the time... but I do want to continue to be creative with my paper creations... this way I get my cake and eat it too!!

My New Toy

I am so excited!! Today I went on a little adventure to a second hand store... and on the way there I took a wrong turn had to circle the block and when I did I found a new pawn shop. When we were done at the second hand store we went to the pawn shop... I love to look around at stores... as long as we make it to Wal-Mart so she can look at the DVDs that is... And there sitting on the shelf was a Classic Kitchen Aide Mixer... looking BRAND NEW and under $50... I grabbed that puppy and took it up to the counter and asked the clerk to plug it in so I could have a test drive... Oh how she purred like a kitten, from the lowest speed to the fastest!! I pulled out my debit card and bought my new toy... She did not come with 2 of the mixing attachments... but I knew that I had some from my old kitchen aide that has been dead for a number of years and sitting in storage...Some would not call this a toy... but to me it is!! I get to go out to MY kitchen... which I am still so GRATEFUL to have and create a culinary yummy!! My fist run with my new toy was the Abreu Family favorite cookie... the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie... The recipe I make I received from Marilyn Bowers.... back in the early 80's. This recipe makes a ton of soft chewy delicious cookies.... a true classic.
