One picture that irks me and another one that make me oh so happy! I hung lights above our bed (thanks for the inspiration Jenice) and it feels like magic! Not such a great picture but I love going in there at night when the lights are on, it's so pretty!
This past week was full of first for me. I finally put my inner critic aside and submitted some layouts to various scrapbook calls. I'm not even worried if they do or don't pick me, it felt so good to just do that! In fact, I submitted 7 different layouts- whoa!!! This was a pretty big deal for me and I'm pretty proud of myself. First step is always the hardest. I also didn't just try one new recipe, I have tried 5 in the last 10 days. I made BBQ chicken and made the BBQ sauce from scratch, I made a tomato, basil quiche- Yumm! I made a rustic basil pesto pasta- with pesto from scratch. I then tried a creamy tomato and steak pasta and last night I made a mushroom stroganoff. It has been so fun trying new recipes! I'm not sure what's on the list for this next week but it may just be a bit tame in comparison, I have 7 demos due by the end of the week and as per usual I haven't started a single one... I work best under pressure. It allows me no time for judging so I do the work, no thinking, just creating. ;-)
Have a great week friends!
