It's been a couple of weeks since I last blogged and today I really starting missing it. Since I was missing blogging, I figured it was a sign that I should get back here and start typing! I have been busy creating things, connecting with friends and spending some quality time time my family. So far this year is sharing up nicely!
Today I thought I'd share a few fun things I've come across recently.
First up, I love this free cut file from Chickaniddy Crafts. Just stop by their blog for the free download. Ideas are brewing on how to put this to good use on a layout.
This heart snapshot mix print from Minted came to my attention today (via an email in my inbox!)
Of course, with my love of photos, this spoke to me and I decided to order a print for our family. At first I thought I'd fill this with photos of my husband and I and give it to him for Valentine's Day, but since we aren't big into gifts on that day, I decided to just fill it will favorite photos from 2013 and not have it be a gift. I ordered the smallest size (8 X 8) and I'm excited to have it arrive. I'm thinking about displaying it in my scrapbook room, but will wait and see once it arrives.
If you haven't tried Minted yet, I recommend it. We used them for our Christmas cards and they were fantastic. You can use this referral link to get $25 off your first order with Minted. Sweet!
I love this art print. It sums up my main goal for this year which is to intentionally connect with my friends and family more this year. I hope to be more mindful of the way I'm spending my time and more aware of the little things that are most important.
With the new year, I got myself back in gear and have been planning out our weekly dinner menus and doing the shopping on Monday each week. With our busy schedule every afternoon and evening, it make things run so much more smoothly when there is a plan (and food in the house.) I've recently discovered the blog Melanie Makes and it's a great resource for easy and delicious recipe ideas. One recipe we tried was her Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches. Delicious!
One last item for today. These waffles are calling to me. I got an ice cream maker for my birthday last year and we've enjoyed mixing up several batches of ice cream (my recent favorite was Salted Carmel from this Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream Cookbook.)
I'm thinking fresh baked waffles filled with homemade ice cream sounds like a perfect treat. Do you think it could count as dinner and dessert all in one?
Thanks for stopping by today!
