So, I am doing the pantry challenge to clean out our excess supply of food, but couldn’t resist picking up FREE stuff at the store. Believe it or not, we have just about used up the yogurt and we only got it three days ago. It’s AWESOME! So I will be getting quite a bit more of it this month. 🙂 It’s great because the Greek yogurt is so thick and tangy, you can use it in place of sour cream as well. Actually, I think it tastes better!
WOW! It’s been a really really long time since I’ve done a regular scrapbooking layout! I’ve been altering and making tags, but no layouts. So here’s my first for the new year. This was inspired by the Method Playground blog challenge to get messy. I started with a sheet of white cardstock, soaked it in coffee, rinsed it, rubbed more coffee grounds in in places to make it splotchy, rinsed again, squeezed it out, tore it up, and baked it. Then I sewed it on to a piece of patterned cardstock (no adhesive). Added photos and embellies and lots more stitching and then slid some hidden journaling up behind the coffee-stained piece.
Autumn working on her math activity book today. I’m trying to figure out what we’re going to be doing for school next year, but I have a feeling the decision is going to take me a couple months to make. There are a lot of things I DON’T want to do, but still not sure what I DO want to do. If you have any curriculum suggestions, especially for math, I would love to hear them!
