Stuff to Share



I was so excited to find this video on YouTube this week.   I got this song as a free, promotional download ages ago and a video wasn’t available the last time I checked.  It looks like their album was finally released last month and now they have a video.    Yeah! Now I can share it with you.



If you have a song you would like to share, link up your blog post to Marcea’s blog.  She is our Hostess with the Mostess each week for Music Saves My Soul.





I read Jenny Lawson’s book, Let’s Pretend This Never Happened: (A Mostly True Memoir).    Jenny may be better know as The Bloggess.  I started following her blog with this post.   I have to admit I laughed until I cried (in a good way).    So when her book finally came out, I couldn’t wait to get my paws on it.  I literally read it in day.    If you like Jenny’s blog, you will love the book.  (The reverse is also true, if you find her offensive, stay way from her book!) 




I made this, Pioneer Woman’s Chicken Florentine Pasta.    As Ree said, “It absolutely completed me.”   It was wonderful with some of my favorite things – pasta, chicken, pasta, cheese, pasta….    You can go to the recipe by clicking on the picture.




My hubby shared this video with me this week.   More true confessions, I needed a Kleenex by the end.  Drat those hormones!  Any how, I thought I would share it with you.   (Funny thing is my husband does most of work when it comes to my daughter’s fencing and it still made me weepy. )

This is what P&G says about the video -

Being a mom is the hardest job in the world. But it's also the best.

This Procter & Gamble commercial honors everything that all moms do to help their children succeed by showcasing the amazing moms behind Olympic athletes at the London 2012 Olympic Games. The hardest job in the world is truly the best job in the world.





I have one more thing to share with you today.   (Also not crafting related – sorry!)   I found this cool video on Pinterest this week.    The slow motion video really shows the beauty and athleticism of fencing.   (The producer of the video says “Behind the bullet, the tip of a fencing blade is the second fastest-moving object in Olympic sports.”  Wow!)  My daughter fences with a foil and these are epee but it’s close enough.   If you really want to know the difference, you can find an infographic here.





Thanks for sticking with me through all this.   I hope you have a fabulous week end!

Super fun post, Cheryl! Thanks for sharing all this awesome stuff. I WANT that pasta!
Great videos Cheryl!

I got a little teary eyed on the Olympic commercial. Both my parents did a lot of driving to soccer, softball, hockey, volleyball, basketball games for me and my siblings over the years!! And my mom made a lotta team meals too!

The fencing video was great - so neat!!!

I made that pasta dish myself about a week ago :) I used roasted red pepers instead of the tomatoes, just because I didn't have enough. It was good!

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
