Preserved Peach Heaven


There almost isn't anything better than this time of year.  So many things growing, so many things to eat, so many things to PUT UP for colder weather!

And that is what I did this past weekend with a bushel of peaches!  I made a couple batches of peach butter, peach preserves, and canned peaches!

But we're a small family now...and can never finish the amount I actually can.  So, that means others get to enjoy it to.  In the endeavor of canning, I have lots to pass on.  My labor into the mouth of others.  Okay, that's sort of silly, but you get the point.

And the photo above is a little gift.  In creating the packaging, it uses a couple of my favorite Made in the USA at a Home Based, Small Company.

The button is from Pinque Peacock (and I'm also show casing this today, so go say hi), and the ribbon is from 3GIRLJAM!

Now, go enjoy your Friday!  Tomorrow I'm going on a little bitty plane to take some awesome shots!

this is such a great idea. I love it. I am going to try using the button as a closure. Never thought of that.

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
HOP START
Oh, guess what else is going on...
IT'S OFFICIALLY SUMMER.
IT'S MY ANNIVERSARY.
Anyway... Here are a few images of the pages in the journal.





Each page has a little journal page insert: 

This journal was made from lots of recycled stuff, including...wait for it....
Toilet Paper Rolls! (yeah, I know...totally cool, huh?)
Old Book Pages (including those from a h…

Big Birthday Celebration

Are you here having fun hopping along with 3GirlJAM in celebration of Julie's sister's big birthday year?  What a great little cyber party we're having!  (she's really a young thing, but she's having a great year)

Well, if not, you should be hopping along (I'll tell you why in a moment). There are some really wonderful birthday ideas from all of us on the design team...and including Julie's two girls, who are also having fun celebrating their aunt's birthday.

If you need to go back to the beginning, head over to the 3GirlJAM blog to get started.  Otherwise....


Here's my card in celebration her special year! I used blue crinkle ribbon from the newly released Red,White,Blue Bundle.It's such a nice shade of blue!  The white has bits of the red and blue in it (and I love the ribbon when it's like that)...and the red is also pretty awesome...like marachino cherries.  The little button in the center is from Pinque Peacock (love lady bugs!) and e…
