Great Pinterest Recipe that I modified

In search of new breakfast recipe's I found this one on Pinterest.

Manilla Spoon is the website that Pinterest took me to

As I was preparing it this morning, my husband asked "Where's the meat?"  I said well we have chorizo and bacon.  Let's add the Chorizo!

So here is my version.  Because I added Chorizo I had to transfer to a casserole dish. 

And I had to cook longer.  I kept checking the eggs every 5 minutes or so.  Wanted them sunny side up, but not runny.

OMG so good!  Love Pinterest!

Reminder!  This amazing sale starts at 12:01 AM on Monday (tomorrow) November 24, 2014!!!!  If you can't place your order for your Door Buster deals due to work, email me and I can do that for you!

November Skype Class

I have been getting ready for my November Skype Class!

It will be tomorrow night with my group in Texas!

And the reason it is exciting for me is that I am in Arizona and thru the Skype system I get to stamp with them!

The Hostess chose the stamp set White Christmas.  She told me what stamp pads she had then I design the cards that they will make!

I designed these cards.  Sent them the card kits in the mail.  

Then tomorrow night we will all be together!  It really is a highlight for me since I miss them all so much!

I also uploaded three videos that they can watch to help them assemble the cards easier!  You can see them on my YouTube Channel HERE  Subscribe and Give a thumbs up while you are there!  Thank you in advance!

If you would like to know more about this I would love to tell you!

Just email me and put in the subject line "Skype Classes"

It is my way of keeping you inspired!  I remember years ago before the internet and Youtube the ways my friends and I would get inspiration was going to local craft stores, looking at the crafting magazines for inspiration.  Then we would shop the store looking for the materials to make those projects from the magazines!  It was always so hard because we couldn't always find what we needed! 

Thank goodness we don't have to do that anymore!

And you don't either!

My Christmas Wall Art

As I went looking for Christmas Decorations I was sad that the wall art was kinda out of my budget.  We moved in May and people advised me not to pay to move things I could easily replace later.  Well, I am not listening to them in the future!  Seems like I have to replace a lot of things!  Including all of our Christmas ornaments and decorations!

Then I thought, duh, go home and make some yourself!

That inspired me to make this!  I used Stampin' Up! designer series papers, a circle punch, buttons and ribbons!  Oh and of course....STAMPS!

You can watch my video to see how I made it!

This was so much fun to do!  And now I have the start to my Old Fashion Christmas Theme!

Next I will be putting my Many Merry Stars together, ooooo having such fun!  I want to put these on my mantle!

Did you know I send out project sheets each week to those who are on my newsletter list?
