Sweet & Spicy

I found this cute little candy bar wrapper idea on the Seeing Ink Spots blog.  I have had a lot of ladies ask me what they can do w/ the larger framelits in the Labels Collection set.  Well here it is!  This is a great option for those of you who do not scrapbook, but would like an alternative option for using the framelits.  It's cute isn't it?! 

I used the Easy Events stamp set and the aqua painter plus a little baker twine and taffeta ribbon. They go together in a flash. 


Yesterday, I made my first batch of salsa in 2012.  It was much needed, we were completely out and panic had set in. I love cheese and salsa on my eggs in the morning for breakfast.  I eat it A LOT!  We have plenty of fresh eggs thanks to my daughter's chickens--they have been laying like crazy lately.  Plus I like lots of protein in the morning and to be able to tell everyone that I'm so healthy I eat veggies for breakfast! LOL  This batch was a little 'warm'--in fact, it was hot. I got a little carried away w/ the peppers!


For those of you that are wondering about my weight loss, I am down -86.4# since January 1, 2012.  I'm getting closer to that 112# goal for the year.  :)  I'm feeling good!
