uuummm……coffee

So we finally ordered some coffee from Mystic Monk and it is WONDERFUL!!!! The service was fast and the coffee is really, really good. We have been wanting to support Monasteries and Abbeys and this is a delicious way to support this group of Carmalite Monks.  We ordered the ‘Big Monk, Little Monks’ set which came with one 12-ounce bag and two sample bags of coffee.  We have only tried our big bag, which was Sumatran, so far.  Our little bags are Mystic Monk Blend and Dark Roast Columbian.  I’m anxious to try them!!!

God Bless!

I worked on more pages for my South Dakota album last night.  Are you getting tired of seeing these photos yet? lol  I have done 29 pages so far and there are 100 pages to the album.  My only concern right now is that it’s starting to get a little thick from the embellishments that I’m using, but we’ll see how that works out later.  It seems like a lot left, but I can’t tell you how quick and easy this method of scrapbooking really is!  I am really excited now because I have large amounts of photos from events like First Communion, jr. high graduation, trips to Colorado and Wisconsin, and my obsession with taking 100’s of photos every time we go to the zoo. lol  I want to sit down one of these days and share how I planned this project.  It wasn’t hard and I must admit I had fun going out and buying the stickers and such.  So far I have only purchased 6 pieces of 12×12 paper.  They coordinate with a sheet of the South Dakota stickers that I found.  I haven’t had to buy any solid card stock because I was able to find enough in my stash, which was nice.  So here is my next batch of pages:

I made some banana muffins for breakfast. We always buy bananas at the store every week. Sometimes we eat them all and sometimes I have several left over and way too ripe. I had 4 this morning that needed something done with them and I have been determined to not waste things so much, especially food! This is an AWESOME recipe. I found it at allRecipes.com and it uses 3 bananas and it has a delicious strusel topping which really adds something special to them. They were very good warm from the oven and my kids loved them! You can find the recipe here.

I finally started getting my South Dakota photos into an album. My Photo Freedom book has saved me in so many ways and this is a huge one! Stacy Julian’s travel album idea was a lifesaver to me! Oh the freedom of being able to scrap around 200 photos w/o having them in a traditional 12×12 album. And, getting them done FAST! I started on this last night and I was able to get 11 pages done in a few hours. I would have gotten more done if I wasn’t so anal about some things. But oh well. 14 rolls of photos from a trip we took in 2001 are finally getting put into an album and in a creative way so I am thrilled!!

Here’s what I have done so far!

God Bless!

This is a challenge layout from a Yahoo group I’m in. You had to scrap the question, “In 100 years, what is the one thing that you want to be remembered for?”  Here’s what I came up with:

and here’s the tag that pulls out from behind the photo:
