Bunnies In The Snow

Hi Everyone,
I would like to share with you one of the paper card kits by Beatrix-Potter on the Crafter's Companion Site. This one is called Beatrix-Potter-Papercrafting--Easel-Card-Kit, and it is wonderful. This is the one I chose to make:

The kit comes with the pretty easels to stand the card on, as well as all the pictures. All you have to do is pop them out, add a few embellishments and done. How nice would that be for someone to look at from there bedside and know you are thinking about them. The kit also comes with the envelopes to mail them.
To find this kit and so many more, stop by the Crafters's Companion Store
and take a look.
Thank you so much for stopping by and taking a look.
And Have a scrappy day.

Sunday Dinner

Hi Everyone,

I hope all of you are having a great Sunday.

A good friend of mine (Jennifer) made a loaf
of banana bread, and I wanted to share the recipe with you. Thank you Jennifer for this awesome recipe.


  • 3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour


No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F. With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.
 Makes one loaf.

OH MY GOODNESS, that looks so good! That would go so well with a big glass of milk. I hope everyone tries this bread recipe. Thank you again Jennifer for the time you took to make this awesome yummy bread...

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
And have a wonderful Sunday!
