Valentines Day Alpha Printables

I like Valentines day. . . but I hate spending money for it!
I just feel like, I really don't need to buy the things the stores tell me to, just to show people I love them.
I like to do that in my own {super frugal} way. :)

I've got a few super cute V-day ideas up my sleeve for ya, but today I'm gonna share with you the alpha printables I made to put in my printables frame.
I love the alpha art because of the simplicity of it, and I love the black, white and red too.

Here is another one where I kept the letters in order.  This one might be my favorite.

I haven't tried yet, but I think these would be cute printed smaller and given out as valentines cards.
So go ahead and print them, and if you use them I'd love to know what you think!

Calling all bloggers/crafters!

That's right. . . I mean Y.O.U!
I am looking for anyone who would be interested in guest posting on this here blog of mine.

We all know that life gets in the way sometimes and lately I'm not able to craft as much as I'd like. :(
But my poor neglected followers still need some good readin!

So if you have a blog, or even if you dont but would like to guest post, I'd love for you to e-mail me!
You don't have to share a craft, you can share a recipe, or some home decor, or some tips on mommy-hood, or anything!

Happy Tuesday to all and I'm off to go visit my brand new nephew!!

O-So-Yummy Steak Bistro Salad Recipe

Hey there everybody! 
I know I've been kinda mia lately, sorry about that. . . sometimes life gets in the way and crafting/blogging just has to take a back seat.

Today I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes for the most delicious salad you will ever eat!

Its really similar to the Steak Bistro salad that Panera Bread used to have.
Well, they don't serve it any more so we had to start making it ourselves and O. M. Goodness is it ever tasty!

Not to mention that we're all trying to eat a little healthier since making our new years resolutions!

Here is what you'll need to make your own steak bistro salad:
A plate full of mixed field greens
Gorgonzola cheese - a healthy sprinkling
balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing
a handful of nuts - I love this with pecans but walnuts would be good to
grilled steak - about 2-3 oz would be perfect for one person

Season and grill up your steak, then slice it nice and thin. Then pile all the goodies on your plate full of greens and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette.

The greens and the cheese are a little bitter with a good bite to them, but the nuts, steak and vinaigrette sweeten it up just a bit.  Ummm!

I promise you will not be disappointed!
Go ahead and try it. . . you know you want to! ;)

Printable Thank You Cards

First things first,
Happy New Year to all of my fabulous readers, followers and friends!

I hope your Christmas and New Year celebrations were grand!

I haven't really got back into the swing of crafting and creating yet.
Anyone else find it hard to get back to sometimes??
But I did make some cute printable little Thank you cards as my way of saying thanks to all of you!
I made two different cards. . .
Some super cute gray and white ones {I am loving gray right now!}

And some fun rainbow cards!
Just print them on a piece of white card stock, cut in between the two cards, and fold!
Please feel free to print them and use them to write your after Christmas thank you-s!

HELP my smart, savy fellow bloggers!

Ok, so as I was trying to upload pictures to post about Christmas and all that jazz, I got some lame message saying. . .
"Whoops! You're out of space. You are using 100% of your 1 GB quota for photos. Purchase more storage
Photos are stored in your Picasa Web Albums account and are included in your 1 GB free quota for photos. Additional storage you purchase is shared between Gmail, Picasa Web Albums, and Google Docs, and is in addition to your free quota."
Has anyone run into this????
Is there anyway around this or do I have to pay?

Its only $5 a year, but seriously blogger. . . It really irks me.  Here all this time you say Free and then Whoops!  Not free anymore!

Anyone have any suggestions???
More fun, posts to come soon. . . hopefully.
