Happy Sunday Everyone!

You guys are too much! Becky and Beth (hi, Beth, sorry I have been out of touch lately) asked for a tut!?!?! I am still giggling... I am one of those that can never remember to write anything down mainly because a lot of what I do comes as a total surprise to me! I am just now remembering to use the image information to note which font I used! But, I did write down how that whole day making the bow went and I have uploaded it. Mind you, if you are looking for a real technical tut, don't download it but I do tell you all that I can remember about making it. It may be enough to be a starting point for you. Really, it is a lot of trial and ERROR, the emphasis being on the error! The "sorta" tut is here. (Download no longer available)

Today is quiet. My son is home again for Thanksgiving break and will have the tubes put in on the 21st. Since he is home I will be doing a lot more grocery shopping and cooking but like I have said, I love it when he is home because he is so much fun to cook for! One of the first things he asked when he came home is if we have everything we need for the Worm Soup! Yes, Cristi, my MIL mentioned that the recipe was Marcajon. Don't know where her family is from. I have asked but she says she is not sure. (Which to me is strange since she is first generation here.) And, yes, she makes Cappeletti soup for Christmas, also. For the Polish side, she makes a Cabbage Soup, which I never cared for. Christmas Eve is really a riot with her because she tries to maintain the "Fish Only" for the Italian tradition but then brings in the Polish side, too. It is quite a mixture of food. She makes great pirogi. We no longer go there for the holidays which is a story in itself which explains why I am now trying to learn how to make all the recipes that are my DH's and kid's favorites.

If I play my cards right I could spend most of the winter in the warmer climates! I could head down to see Pugsli, then on to Florida to see Lisa, head to New Mexico to see two different friends and then out to California to see Barb! Sounds good to me! Barb, I love Spritz cookies! I don't make them, I have tried but pressing them with the arthritis in my hands is a problem. My traditional cookie for Christmas that has been handed down is Peppernuts. It is not the Pfeifferneusse (I know I spelled that wrong!) that most people know with the cakey texture and powdered sugar, these are an anise cookie about 5/8" big that get real hard. They are great with tea or coffee since you can float them in it to soften them a little. They sound weird but everyone that has tried them loves them and we now make 3X the recipe because my Mom and I give out bags of them to everyone that comes to Christmas dinner and then some.

Mack...this is my second dog named Bogie! My first dog I named after Bogart when I was in an old movie kick. I had him for 18 years and he was the love of my life and best friend from 8th grade on. This Bogie Beagle was a rescue and when I was picking him out I was very hesitant about taking him because he was so traumatized and skittish but then the girl said, "We were going to name him Buddy but we already had 2 others named Buddy. So, we called him Bogie." That was it! Decision made, he was coming home with me and he is just the sweetest dog! It took a long time to bring him around and he still is fearful of people except for the family and people that are here all the time. But he is definitely, MY dog, and I sometimes think there is an invisible umbilical cord! Both our dogs and our cat were rescues. The Jack/Rat is actually my daughter's and the cat's my son's. They are definitely my kids since they can't turn away from an animal in need and they know that I won't say "no".

So, today is the day! The last piece of the kit! The frosted frames! Are you excited? Can you not wait?

Then wait no longer! On your mark, get ready, go DOWNLOAD! Sorry no longer available

Have a great day! Hugs to you all!

Thank you for sharing this lovely kit. It's hard finding kits for boys, and this one is great for their snow pics. You're very talented. Keep up the good work!

Becky said...

Thank you again! And thank you for the information on bow making! Going to see what this non-designer can do with it! I do appreciate it too!

Thanks for the great shares as always! You now have me hungry for christmas cookies! The last few years I've not done alot due to the arthritis too and since my sons are grown up seems Xmas is a bit different nowadays.

Anyhow, you GOT to share that recipe for the cookie you mentioned. I love anything Anise! My favorite cookie your traditional snowballs but because I detest butter I use margarine and instead of walnuts I use crushed Pecans. The minor changes make a world of a difference and they are so light (butter tends to make them heavy) they are everyone's favorite here!

Have a wonderful pain free day!

Thank you! I've enjoyed this!

Thanks for the 'sorta' tut.

Pugsli said...

Thank you so much for the beautiful kit! I think you really have talent and admire your work! DH is building another fire in the fireplace again so come on down. If I ramble too much it's cause it is so nice to have a human (although Pugsli thinks he is human) to communicate with. I really don't have a lot of friends and the ones I do have work so it gets kinda lonesome. Anyway, thank you so much for the kit and letting me ramble. P.S. My other name is Jackie.

Beth said...

LMBO! Oooh I was SO amused with your Tutorial!!!
Your sense of humor is wonderful! :D
And I'm going to share something that I am quite ashamed of.....
I noted that you mentioned several times a Mesh Warp, the first time I visualized my warp brush, the 2nd time I thought, hmmm.. mesh warp, dumbfounded as I was I even recall whispering it out loud. Mesh Warp... hm
Now I'm thinking, ok, what the heck IS that!?
So I opened PSP, got to looking, decided to run my mouse over my tool buttons and WOLA!!! I DO have a mesh warp LOL...
I have owned PSP since 4.0 came out but I have never even tried that "button", in fact I can honestly say I didn't even know it existed. I use my warp brush quite a bit though! LOL
Thanks Janni, you gave me a new toy to play with. :D
BTW.. I completely understood your Tute.. It's the best tute I've read in a long time! ;)

And, I can relate 100%, the cold coffee, the up's and down's, the pulling away\being pulled back to the computer...LOL.. yep, the attempt to do something\anything around the house, the frustration, the headache, I know it ALL too well.

Thanks so much for all you do, especially for sharing that sweet sense of humor of yours!

Your peppernut cookies sound good...kinda like dunking biscotti in coffee!! I forgot to say your room here is waiting for you, although it is only going to be 60 for the high today, but by the weekend, back up to 80!

Lisa said...

For some reason, my first post didn't come through...just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the day with your family! :)
