Blogger Love……

This year has been a tough one for me with many health issues. So, when my husband came in the door the other day announcing “someone has sent you a package,” it really lifted my spirits!! It was from my blogger buddy, Kathleen, from Millinocket, Maine!!gift2 Her blog is Rural Maine. I was amazed and thrilled and overwhelmed! She made something for little old me with her crafty little hands!gift1 Here is the handmade booklet she made me above, which came with an awesome letter, hand written by her, and all wrapped up and fastened with a pretty pink ribbon! It was just like Christmas! She scrapped me a booklet with a vintage sewing theme. I just love it! She does wonderful work…..well take a look…. gift3 That’s the front page.gift4 And then we look inside….neat!gift5

Each page is different.gift6 gift8

A close up above.gift9 Love those dress form stickers!gift12 gift13 And the beautiful ribbons hanging from the binder rings…..and the lovely cards…….gift14 that are tucked down into a pocket in each page….gift15 are decorated with vintage stickers……also have a lovely ribbon tied at the top of each one. Kathleen says you can write on these cards….your favorite pattern or supplies or whatever you choose to! gift16 This is stamped on one of the pages and I think that sums it up. Simply handmade…..(not so simply I am sure!) by my friend Kathleen…..all the way from Millinocket, Maine….sent with love….just for me!! What a lucky girl I am!!

Life is Good…………

Thanks Kathleen…………XO

Debbie, you are too kind. I had such fun making it, and am so happy you like it. I know all about those "health issues", having a few of my own this year. I cherish your friendship, and look forward to a trip to the Christmas Tree Shop. How about breakfast or lunch that day, too?
Hugs & Luv,
Kathleen

hi debbie...my sidebar is such a mess. one of these days i will organize it. the stuffed jalapeno recipe is this. cut the peppers in half and scoop out the seeds and veins. put a chunk of cream cheese inside and spread it. add a lil' smokey. wrap the whole thing with thin bacon. sit them on cookie sheet racks on a cookie sheet and bake them at 375 degrees for as long as it takes for the bacon to become crisp. it depends on the size of the peppers but they take at least an hour. they smell WONDERFUL. my kids love them so much they even eat them cold. they take time but believe me, they are worth it. if you type stuffed jalapenos in the search bar on my blog, you can look at pics of all the times i've made them. let me know if you have any questions! joyce

hi debbie...let me know how you like the poppers! just remember not to rub your eyes when you are making them. the last time i made them i put my contacts in afterwards and it was extremely painful to say the least!!!

Hi Debbie! Oh, that is such a sweet surprise for you! What a darling journal or whatever. she is talented and you are a very special one.
Thank you so much for your encouraging comments to me. I really know nothing, just like to play! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

sounds like you are going to have tons of food. if you really think you need more, why not make my baked ziti? it feeds the masses! my kids and their significant others eat tons of food! and they are crazy skinny! my daughter works two jobs and my son has a lot of poor hungry friends so we never lack for places to distribute the food.
