Have A Sweet Day!!

Blame it on Serena. Yep, it's all her fault. She gave us the idea of making these adorably sweet, tiny doughnut cupcakes. Well, mine did not turn out as picture perfect as hers, but you know what?? They taste absolutely DIVINE! I used the recipe Serena used from Country Living.
They were just a tad bit of a pain in the neck to make and it all takes a while since the pan is sooooo small. What we won't do for cuteness on a plate!

Hope your Valentine's Day is grand!!

Do you journal?

A journal is (definition from dictionary)"A personal record of occurrences, experiences, and reflections kept on a regular basis; a diary. An official record of daily proceedings." A journal is a continuing record of meaningful experiences that affect our lives. What would you like to remember about yourself? What would you like to tell your children or grandchildren about yourself? I personally don't feel like I am a very good story teller, or have anything interesting to write about,but writing in a journal is all about keeping and savoring memories. You may never be remembered for your superb writing skills, profound insight or your experiences, but you are the only one who can describe how you felt when your first child was born, or the day you got your first "new" car as a teenager. Journal writing is the perfect place to sort out all of our problems, set goals, preserve memories and develop dreams.

I have to admit that I do not keep a journal. I have started one on several different occasions, but I couldn't tell you where they are though. I have made journals before, but this time as I made these, I felt different about them, like I needed to begin one of my own. So... now I will begin the journey of journaling!

P.S. The journals pictured above are for sale. If anyone is interested send me a message!
Happy Day~Jennifer

A crafty girl really needs her own tools and as I have learned from my handy as a pocket on a shirt husband( AKA as The Wizard), they have to be Craftsman. Did you know that if ever one of these screwdrivers breaks I can walk into Sears and get a new one??!! Yessiree Bob, that's all you do. These things are so well made though that they almost NEVER break. The Wizard did have one break a few years back, so it does happen.

As you can see, each of these babies has a swipe of pretty pink nail polish and a K on it. Oh, why is that you ask?? That would be because these are MINE! I will be nice and let anyone use them, BUT you better put them back where you found them! I finally put The Wizard's back. He still seems to think I have more somewhere. I can't imagine why that is.

Aren't these the cutest little screwdrivers ever!! I just love the little ones. I call them the newly hatched ones. So sweet!
Now, this crafty girl is taking the day off to make some crafty goodness!
