Today I made 12 bags of Chicken and Rice Soup Mix.
This will make meal prep easy! Just add dehydrated Thrive Chicken or canned chicken, add to water per label and let set. I was out of dehydrated chicken- we use it a LOT so I left it out. I will add it or my home canned chicken at the time we use the mix. Kay will take a couple with him to work and stick in his desk drawer.
MUCH healthier and tastier than the stuff at the store and for those who are GMO freaks- GMO FREE.
1/2 cup Thrive Dehydrated Chicken
1/4 cup Thrive Rice
4 tsp Thrive Chicken Boullion
1 tsp Thrive Chef's Choice Blend seasoning
1 tsp Thrive Salad Blend seasoning
1 Tbsp Thrive Celery
1 Tbsp Thrive Carrots
1 Tbsp Thrive Onions
all items are Thrive brand flash freeze dried and delicious!
I created my own how to cook label on my computer and printed!
Easy Peasy and took less than 20 minutes to make.
Have fun! Check out my husband's Thrive Website HERE
In the meantime Katie and I are having a Pretty Little Liars season 4 and 5 marathon. Its fun spending time with her and catching up on what we missed so we can find out WHO DID IT or what the heck they are doing!
I have been asked to join in a Blog Hop a week from today (Monday) so keep checking in to see what is going on!
have a creative day!
Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney
A lot is being said in the media about Mitt Romney not being “likable” or that he doesn’t “relate well” to people.
So after much research, here is a Top Ten List to explain this “unlikablility.”
Top Ten Reasons To Dislike Mitt Romney:
1. Drop-dead, collar-ad handsome with gracious, statesmanlike demeanor. Looks like every central casting’s #1 choice for Commander-in-Chief.
2. Been married to ONE woman his entire life, and has been faithful to her, including through her bouts with breast cancer and MS.
3. No scandals or skeletons in his closet. (How boring is that?)
4. Can’t speak in a fake, southern, “preacher voice” when necessary. (Could learn a thing or two from Hillary, Al, or Barack in that area)
5. Highly intelligent. Graduated cum laude from both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School…and by the way, his academic records are NOT sealed.
6. Doesn’t smoke or drink alcohol, and has never done drugs, not even in the counter-culture age when he went to college. Too square for today’s America?
7. Represents an America of “yesterday”, where people believed in God, went to Church, didn’t screw around, worked hard, and became a SUCCESS!
8. Has a family of five great sons….and none of them have police records or are in drug rehab. But of course, they were raised by a stay-at-home mom, and that “choice” deserves America’s scorn.
9. Oh yes…..he’s a MORMON. We need to be very afraid of that very strange religion that teaches its members to be clean-living, patriotic, fiscally conservative, charitable, self-reliant, and honest.
10. And one more point…..pundits say because of his wealth, he can’t relate to ordinary Americans. I guess that’s because he made that money HIMSELF…..as opposed to marrying it or inheriting it from Dad. Apparently, he didn’t understand that actually working at a job and earning your own money made you unrelatable to Americans.
It's pretty clear to me he is the only MORAL, intelligent and CAPABLE person to hold the position of the President of the USA.
This is a cute and easy 2 page layout kit. The hardest part were the banner tips, but I watched the 2nd part of the new Season 5 Downton Abbey while creating this so it made it more fun!
I can see exactly WHY mom chose this kit, it has roses and flowers on the papers! I get the feeling this was meant for my daughter Katie- so that is who's photos I will add later on.
And here are the easy 2 pages I created from that layout idea using our new Painted Blossoms Designer Paper and Painted Petals Photopolymer Stamp Set. Talk about wonderful!! These are a must have. I will have to order the coordinating embossing folder to go with it I must have missed it when I placed my order.
They can be found on page 19 of the New 2015 Occasions Catalog. Download 20150106_Occasions_en-US-1
I wanted to keep it simple so the right floral page is the full 12x12 sheet from the paper pack with 2 photo layers added. I plan to add elements after photos are added. On the left page, I included a 3x3 envelope with a pink 3x3 card for journaling. And I rounded the corners of the photo layers to soften the look of the pages. Again, I left off the elemements until I add the photos. The left page is the light blue varigated paper from the pack. I stamped using Versamark Ink, the flower design from the stamp set. It's hard to see here, but it's there. I also used the lines from the kit for journaling lines also stamped in Versamark.
After adding my photos later on, I will create a title for the page or some words cut out with my cricut or silhouette to bring it all together. I ALWAYS use Stampin Up Solid Cardstock in my projects, I have yet to find anything of better quality.
Using this Painted Blooms Designer Paper is fast and fun for layouts. I am going to buy 2 more of the packs becuase the paper reminds me so much of my Grandmother Cochran and my Mom and myself that I want to use it to create a few 3 generations pages and then a journal book for me.!
I hope you like my basic ideas, feel free to copy them. I would love to see what you do!
I have 5 wedding cards to create by Friday night- so I better get to it!
Thanks for stopping by, I know how busy you are!
Hi everyone! I am recovering from 48 hours of "whatever it was" (thought it was food poisoning) and I want to share with you some page layouts I have been making.
I was going through some craft stuff of my Mom's and found a couple of scrapbook page Kits. So I made the kits but used the layout idea and created an additional layout for each.
Here is the first kit (see 2nd kit in tomorrows post)
Of course the kit had all the papers, directions and elements in it - the bicycle on the paper was already printed on - it's a pretty cute layout in person. You can click on each picture to see it larger.
So from that layout I chose a pad of papers in my stash and used Stampin Up Cherry Cobbler 12x12 Cardstock for the background. I didn't put the photo layer on this one, I plan to just put the photos directly on the pages- we will see when the time comes, if I don't like the way it looks I can always add a photo layer at the time I add the photos. And I can add more elements to the page when I do add the photos. I like to leave that as an option.
This left page was a pre printed 12x12 page that I cut apart and repositioned the pieces I wanted to use. Then I added the 1/4" stripe cut from a 12x12 page of the stripe paper. Honestly, it will be hard for me to cover this with photos! lol
I used my old Original Cricut - to cut this as I am still having learning issues with the impressions cricut I bought from Vanessa almost a year ago.
A close up of the words they are 5". I chose that word because of the paper underneath- it is the music for Jingle Bells
I loved this little bell element
These cricut elements have Stampin Up Dimensionals on the back so they pop up off the page for dimension.
I used the Anna Griffin Winter Wonderland Cricut Cartridge to cut out the Jingle and bell for the page. I have to admit this cartridge is my most favorite Christmas cartridge I have ever found. Her designs are just beautiful!
I bought mine 2 years ago from HSN.
I am FINALLY feeling like crafting again! I did 2 days of scrapbooking with 2 page layouts each day and got sick- ugh! Today I feel better but am going to take it easy and do some easy tasks and then go right back to my studio and keep creating tomorrow. I love creating the pages, I rarely if ever create with photos. I know, that is a bad habit. But I have never had a problem putting photos on my ready made pages when I am ready for that part. What I "should" be doing is finishing up my oldest sons pages and emptying his huge rubbermaid tub so I can put other stuff in it ~ lol that will come . I just felt the need when seeing those kits from Mom to spend the day with her working on her projects. I miss her so- even tho her mind was gone from the dementia and the alzheimers for the last 10 years and it was hard to do the fun stuff we used to. She still had "moments" up until the last 2 years when she would just sit with me while I made stuff.
I hope you are having a productive & creative New Year. Thanks for being my friends and for your sweet comments and emails!
I found this article through Facebook and HAD to copy, paste and share!
My favorite thing about the New Year is that it allows for a magical sense of renewal and a chance to start fresh.
It is the day we resolve to leave the past behind and move forward. It is the day we fill ourselves up with courage and tell ourselves this is the year we will start doing more of the things we want and stop doing the things that don’t matter.
With every new year comes the chance to change our mindsets, eliminate negativity and choose to move forward. There is a reason we are told the best is yet to come.
This year, make a resolution you can keep. Stop doing things that are no longer in your best interest. Here are 15 things you must STOP doing in 2015 to truly move forward and live this year to the fullest:
The world does not need to know your every move; leave some things to the imagination. Mystery is good.
What you see is NOT what you get, or even what the true reality of a situation is. We all spend way too much of our time comparing our lives to others; yet, we all forget that the pictures we see of others on Instagram and Facebook are simply highlights of their lives.
They aren’t the everyday; they aren’t the struggle; they aren’t the bad hair day. They are the edited, Photoshopped and posed highlight reel of a momentary highlight of someone else’s life.
People will judge you regardless of what you do, so do what you want. There’s nothing wrong with walking your own journey on a path you create.
You don’t have to do, like or want the things that other people try, love or desire. Start that blog, write that article or wear that outfit about which you’ve been hesitant. In the great words of Kid Cudi, “They gon’ judge me anyway, so whatever.”
If you don’t take the chance or risk it all now… when will you? Time will always be hard to find. Start now and go after what you want, or wait for later and hope that later isn’t too late.
If you have an idea or feeling that keeps coming back to you, make it happen. When an idea keeps coming back, it’s for a reason. Take action and follow the ideas that flood your mind. Million-dollar ideas are a dime a dozen, but it’s only one in a million who follow through with their ideas.
We’re all in this together. When you give the world the best you have, the best comes back to you. Be good to people. Popularity fades, kindness does not.
You are not a victim; it’s time to get out of your own way. If you find yourself constantly surrounded by drama, you are the one enabling it.
You will never be able to control what others do; however, you are in full control of how you react. Realize that you can overcome hard times. Instead of attending your own pity party, you can accept the fact that only you can change your thoughts and experiences.
You have the power to control your feelings.
The thoughts in your head about yourself and your situation really do affect your life. Make sure your worst enemy doesn’t reside in-between your own ears.
Follow your intuition and learn that nothing that lasts is started through force. If you have to force it, leave it behind.
There is a difference between moving on and quitting. Understand that it’s okay to grow out of things. You don’t have to want the same things you wanted when you were 16, 18, 21 or 25…
Life changes, and so do we. Staying where you are and living with guilt or fear is a guaranteed trip to nowhere. You’re allowed to move on and miss it at the same time. Missing something or someone doesn’t make you weak; it makes you real.
Don’t overvalue short-term benefits. Higher pay doesn’t equate to a job that will make you feel complete. A significant other with a nice car doesn’t equal a lifetime of happiness.
Choose a job that will give you experience, more opportunities and tons of room for professional and personal growth. Choose a relationship based on someone’s heart, not bank account.
Don’t make decisions based on what you think you SHOULD do.
Don’t take advice from people who don’t have to live with the result of the decision. Make decisions based on what you WANT to do. It’s your life and you’ll have to live with the choices you make. You don’t need to choose the mediocre when greatness exists.
No is a complete sentence. You owe no one an explanation for not wanting to go out, not wanting to take a drink, not wanting to stay over, not wanting to go to the reunion.
The true definition of power is how much you can give back, and not just monetarily. Being powerful is like being classy: If you have to tell people you are, you aren’t.
Once and for all, own who you are, own where you’ve been, and don’t be afraid to tell your story.
No one else has it figured out, either. There is no guidebook or perfect formula, and often, life works much more as a process of elimination to figure out what we want.
We learn more and more about ourselves and the things that truly make us happy every day — and more importantly, the things that don’t. There are moments in life when everything is blurry and moments everything seems to be in focus.
Just like the lens of a camera, you have the power to adjust your vision. And, even on the darkness days, where you can’t see anything, just keep moving forward. It’s the only constant and forever the direction in which we all must go.
