Yeah, LET IT!


I counted till they danced so
Their slippers leaped the town,
And then I took a pencil
To note the rebels down.
And then they grew so jolly
I did resign the prig,
And ten of my once stately toes
Are marshalled for a jig!

by Emily Dickenson

REALLY - LET IT FLY... I'm SO ready!

Well, I'm not really, for the driving in it part, the winter clothes part. I guess I'm just tired of the rain lately and am thinking anything would be better.

In case you are wondering why I put up TWO versions of the same graphic, its because I'm showing you the ability of a very cool online graphic tool I came across. Its called SumoPaint, and these are two versions of a simple graphic I created in a short time. I'm VERY impressed with SumoPaint as it has many, MANY features - it supports layers, has filters, blending modes, allows you to save to their gallery and share, or download to your computer. You MUST try this out! Just click HERE to be transported.

I'd love to see what YOU create!

I was helping my husband organize paper at the school recently and I found this under the sink. Ewwww - I have never dreamed of looking under the desks and tables. I remember hiding gum under my desk as a kid, but this is an Adult Learning Center. You suppose it still happens? I daren't look. Anyways, this can looks about 50 yrs old or something.

Yummy Parmesan Breadsticks

Yep, she's on about her bread again. LOL.

These are breadsticks I made using the Peasant Bread dough recipe from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day cookbook (see link in my links list) - but I added italian spices to the dough, flax and I rolled the sticks in parmesan cheese before baking.

I'm going to make a whole bunch of these this week as I'm doing a demo of the bread on Thursday for the schools pot-luck lunch.

Short and sweet blog entry today. I've decided to make a little personal-use 'something' for you to herald my wanting to bring the festive season on! I'm posting the decorated version today - later in the week I will post an un-decorated version which you can fix up with your own embellishments. This element is BIG - probably hangs to a little over 8 inches!

I'd LOVE to see how you use it - and feature your layouts on my blog! Just send me an 800 x 800 jpg and I will post it here!

Do YOU have snow yet?


  1. Beutiful Ornament! We have snow where I live :)

  2. Oh, I love the snow layouts and the ornament. I guess I will have to figure out what to use it.

    Nope, no snow here. We are lucky if we see any during the winter.. We might get a little winter weather, but not much. I would love to see more. But I do not enjoy the cold weather. So, I will settle for hardly any snow.

    Have a great week, my friend!

  3. Good Afternoon Barb:)
    Was just taking a break from house cleaning and thought I'd come see what bread you have made this time.hehe..mmmmm ..they look fantastic!! Wish we had smell-a-bloggin.LOL

  9. LOL ~ I was just out walking with the dogs. 65 degrees and sunny - and I needed a break from the project I am on. I came across some grizzley scat, and was just thinking to myself... it is time for those big ole boys and mamas to go take a winter nap. They are not going to do that if we don't get some cold and real snow... I am with you, "Let It Snow"!
