Field Trip!

I started today by making this little 4x6 flier to leave at coffee shops.

Printed it looks a lot more sleek or just click on it to see in it's full beauty. I really like how this turned out.

Once I was done making it I decided to go out to some coffee shops to find out about leaving my cards. I took this picture before I left, too bad I didn't smile. Silly me!

This is one of the charming coffee shops I stopped at.

I didn't leave my flier very many places, mostly because I wasn't gutsy enough today and I only had 5 of them. I realized two things I need to be able to leave more than one and I need to get more of my journals posted.

It was a nice little field trip. I did get some better ideas. I even found a list online of indie coffee shops in San Jose. I figured these shops will be more open to a local business leaving some cards.

I'm kinda addicted to making fliers. I want to make a few more, but I guess I should focus on making journals :D

Clean, Organized, and Ever So Easy to Create!

I recently bought a shelving unit to store all my papers and supplies. I put it together on Friday. Yesterday I cleaned my whole creating area using this new white beauty to organize all my papers and things! Wow! What difference it makes! I feel so much more excited to create and make :D

Here are some pictures to show you what it looks like now!
This is the unit. See all my papers so organized and pretty!

This shows my chair in relation to the shelving. (and my box of cardboard goods to recycle)

A closer look at the goodies I use to make the covers.

My "Office" As you can see it's the dinning room table with a comfy desk chair. (and my breakfast :)

That's my little tour! I know many of you would condsider this the "before" the organization photo, but for me this is the "after." And for me I'm quite satisfied :D


What does your "Office" or creating area look like?

Rob Cobb - Featuring fadingendlessly!!

Yeah.... Listing veggies was super boring, but ideas you have while going to sleep seem so much more brilliant than as you doze off.

So for now I'll leave you this picture of a happy man and his new hat! It's from fadingendlessly who has a super shiny shop!!! (sorry for all the Firefly references :D

I wanted to get this for Rob (husband of mine) for christmas, but I couldn't pull it off. So after christmas I sent him the link to show him what I wanted to get him. He bought it with is spending money that day!

It came in the mail today in the coolest box and packaging ever! Seriously you need to go check it out! Click on the pic below to do so.

To fully understand the coolness of this hat you NEED to watch Firefly!

Sleep and Veggies

Ok, This is what I used to get to sleep last night. I started making a list in my head in hopes it would put me to sleep :D

Veggies I love and hate!

I really like it raw, most people don't know you can. But it needs to be fresh on the cob and then it's sweet and yummy.
Cooked on the cob is amazing the best way to eat it!!! (oh and IN corn is the best) Cooked off the cob is good when fresh and ok from the can. I have recently found that steamed its very good.

Green beans
Raw they are mmmm good!
Cooked they are yummy as long as they aren't the squeaky kind bring it on!

If cooked right it's one of my favorites. With white sauce or baked.

Cooked I almost hate them. Raw they are mmmm esp snap peas.

I only like them as baby carrots. Not carrot sticks from regular carrots. I don't like them cooked in any way.

Celery (I have very strong feelings about this guy)
NASTY!!! When it is raw its stringy and horrible. When its cooked, lets just say I will pick it out no matter what. Gag.

Bell peppers of any colors so good. Cooked or Raw. Peppercinis are one I am getting used to. Anything hotter than them I can't handle.

I like them baked :D Raw is good too, but in small amounts.

I mostly like them in all ways.

Cooked it always seems mushy. And raw (this is strange) gives me hiccups.

Cooked/Pickled are yummy.

I like them raw, mostly with ranch. Pickled ever so perfect. I even made and canned some when I was younger. My brothers loved them.

Tomatoes (yes I know they are a fruit but I refuse to call them that)
I love tomato sauce so I guess I like them cooked. I love raw tomatoes, but they seriously need to be fresh not those little white squares the put Taco Bell things.

Wow I have always quoted them as one of my three favorite foods. Boiled, Baked, Mashed, Baked, Roasted, Au Gratin (that word looks funny), Fried. The only exception is potato salad.

Brussel Sprouts
I have no strong feelings about them. Except my pastor from my youth paid me a $1 to eat three. haha

Raw always tastes gritty and dirty no matter how many times I wash it, so no thanks. I love it cooked.

I only like iceberg lettuce. The rest are so hard to wrangle in my mouth and feels like I'm eating leaves.

I really only like it if its cooked to perfection. If its mushy in anyway, Ick. I do remember Jennifer hated Eggplant when we were kids.

I like them all ways.

I've only had them boiled I think with mayonnaise. It was really good.

I really like them in a wrap or sandwich. Although that seems contradictory to my lettuce statement.

I like the seeds baked. I hate pumpkin pie.

Cabbage (possible should be with the lettuce)
Meh. Cooked I don't really enjoy it. Raw it gives me hiccups.

Water Crescents (not sure if that's the right way to spell it)
I seriously just shuttered. The texture is sooooo horrible. It reminds me of nails on a chalkboard.

Well, I can't think of anymore.

What are your favorites and hated veggies?

As my Auntie Ru says:
Peace, Love and Veggies (or is it Peace, Love and eat your veggies?)

Dissclaimer: Many of these are not technically veggies, but are mostly well know as them.
