Monday Make Itz!


Here is a great idea video from the Travel Channel.
Take two USA maps and make it a travel memory, or
perhaps pix of where friends and family live.

Where to get Maps? :
AAA members can get maps from the club.
Order from Amazon.
Smaller maps can be printed from Free
Look in the school supply clearance area now, stores want the room for Hallo-Thanks-Mass.
USA maps are also in the office supply area of big box stores.

COLOR It --a company specializing in grown up coloring products
is offering a free download each Friday.

This weeks is a fun Cat picture.
Just download, print and color.
I plan to print on Whisper White cardstock paper from Stampin Up to get better color coverage.

(I have tried to log onto this link, but it keeps kicking me off. I suspect
 many of us are trying to download at once, so give it a few and try again.?!)

Happy Coloring!

Mistakes happen when products are produced.
If a purchased product is defective, be sure to let the company know.
They want to make it right, keep a happy customer, and to check quality control.
There is usually an 800 number and/or email address on the package or website.

For example:

I recently purchased a name brand set of fine tip markers. Half of them began
to leak. (Thankfully I had placed them in zip lock bags after taking out of the original package.)
I called said company to let them know what had happened. The customer service gal
was very glad that I did.  Quality control wants to see what went wrong so I am getting a
label to return to the company. I am also getting coupons for future purchases to cover
the cost of the markers. I could have just thrown them away, but this may be a bigger problem.
Then again, the pens could have just been overheated or frozen in a warehouse.

Another example is a name brand colored pencil--no lead inside the shell!
I'm waiting to hear back from this company to replace this color.

Thursday Treatz

Frosted Cupcookies - these cupcakes are made of cookies, stuffed with Oreos, and frosted with vanilla frosting! The base recipe is only 2 ingredients so these are incredibly easy and SO GOOD!


made with Oreos and Refrigerated Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Recipe Update: I tried the crock pot hot fudge brownies --yum yum. This one is a keeper, but note that it is very rich--only need to eat a small bowl. Would also be great with whipped cream and/or ice cream.

Making Memories

HI Crafters,
    Just returned from 25 days, 5000 miles, 11 states, 'Grand' fall road trip. Spoiled the 'grands' and their parents along the way. Celebrated the National Park System 'grand' birthday! Revisited favorite parks and explored new ones. Enjoyed the beauty of this 'grand' nation. 
Had 'grand' temperature extremes from 92 degrees all the way down into the 30's with sleet and snow in the Rockies. Grand memories, but always grand to get back to one's own bed.

Hope all are enjoying this beautiful fall/autumn season!
