I think I’ve finally convinced Karissa that the triple flag cards are pretty cool! ¬†I love how she took a two line stamp and made it work in the triple flag. ¬†And like how she wrapped the twine in the top flag.

Hope your week is going good!

More Painting!



Just a quick cute smile card this morning! ¬†How fun would it be to get this card in the mail?! ¬†It would certainly make me smile ūüôā

We have had a big week and it continues today.  More painting and then the carpet will be ripped out.  Will be so glad to get rid of that carpet.  Ordered a new rug this morning so hopefully within another week we will be all put back together.  We plan to freeze more corn this afternoon too.

We froze corn yesterday after a half day in the shop and an afternoon of painting.  I went and picked up my niece and, boy, was she a big help!

I love this recipe for freezing corn.  We begin by washing all the corn!

then while the corn is still cold, we cut it off the cob. ¬†Hallie (my niece) was telling me about these cool corn cob cutters and so we went to town and got two of them and they work really good! ¬†Fast! ¬†You can see some taupe paint on Kevin’s thumb! ¬†a sneak peak of our room colors!

Then we put: ¬†8 cups of corn, 1 cup of water, 1/2 cup butter (one stick), 1 tsp. salt, and 1 T. of sugar. ¬†Oh yes! ¬†sugar makes everything better! ūüôā ¬†After it begins to boil. ¬†Time it for 5 minutes.

Let it cool and then bag it!  We did 4 dozen ears of corn in two hours from start to complete clean up.  It is a sticky and messy job! We now have 24 cups of frozen corn in the freezer and we ate 4 cups with supper!

I think we might be taking it a little easy this weekend.  Going to see our son on Saturday and then spending a nice quiet Sunday so that we can begin on the floors on Monday.  Have a great weekend!
