Berry Goodness

I'm popping back in to say "Hi!"


Well, now that that's out of the way I can share a bit of what I've been doing this past week. Last Friday I went to my friend Kimberly's house and she taught me how to make jam...yummy strawberry jam. And I'm proud to say I am now the owner of 6 jars of homemade jam, along with 5 jars of freezer jam. Well, really 4 jars...it was too yummy to leave alone.

And while I was reveling in my homemaker victory, I got a boon. The UPS man made a stop. I wasn't expecting it until Monday, but he brought all my new goodies from the upcoming Summer idea book. The smell of all the new papers and stamps were overwhelming, so I ran to the kitchen to have some jam and bread. By the time Engineer got home I was on cloud nine. And as an extra bonus, he took his Scouts camping that night. Not that having him gone is a bonus...but I wouldn't have to put up with his eye rolling as I drooled over my new playthings.

So yesterday, while still playing working with my new stuff, I made this little 3x3 card to give to Kimberly as a thank you for letting me make a mess in her kitchen.

Don't peek, Kimberly!

And now I'm off to my closet again! I'm working on display pieces for an upcoming Open House for the new catalog.

And to have some more jam.
