Post it Note Holders

As you know we've been blessed with much needed rain recently here in Georgia!! So Saturday because I still was not over my cold I stayed inside and spent some well deserved time in my scrapbook room! I was supposed to be over at my step mom's scrapping away with the gals but I decided not to go because I really didn't need to infect anyone else. And I really just needed to rest!!

I found this really awesome blog that I LOOOOOOOVE!! She is sells Stampin Up! She also makes these adorable little post it note holders. Check it out here... and here...

So I looked around on Etsy and found some chipboard coasters and made some too!! I will take these to a local shop here in town along with my cards and a few other goodies for her to sell. I have temporarily closed my Etsy shop until I get the time to rebuild my inventory. Right now because I have started back to work full time, I just do not have the time to scrap and keep up the demands of an online store. I plan to have a re-grand opening sometime in the near future.
Have a great week!!
Congratulations Travis and Angela!! It's a baby boy!!!
Angela, are you coming next weekend for the shower?? PLEASE!!! We're all dying to see the baby!!! :) If not we're coming up soooooon!!! lol

Recipe Exchange

I'm currently doing a recipe exchange and thought I'd share with you my recipe. This is sooo good! I always make these candies at Christmas time.

The recipe came from one of my favorite cookbooks. Easy dessert cooking with 5 ingredients or less!!

Almond Caramels

12 graham crackers
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup butter
1 package semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup slivered almonds

lay graham crackers in bottom of foil lined 15x10 inch jellyroll pan

in medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and brown sugar, stirring frequently, until sugar dissolves

bring sugar mixture to full boil and stir continuously for about 5 minutes. Make sure not to cook too long or let it burn..

Pour mixture over graham crackers and spread mixture to coat crackers. You have to do all of this rather quickly because it cools quickly.

Sprinkle chocolate chips over and let stand for 1 minutes until they melt. Spread chocolate chips in swirling motion.

Sprinkle almond slivers over chocolate and press into chocolate to hold almonds.

Cool thoroughly and break into pieces..

This is a good recipe. I always make it at Christmas time!
