Junk Journal

Standard

 

On the internet I came across these junk journals and thought that I wanted to try making one. I did some research on tea dye paper and book binding. I Experimented with some paper. I even went to our local library and bought a few books from the tent sale to play with. Here is how it turned out. Thank for looking

Manhattan Clam Chowder

Standard

This is always a busy time of year for us. We are looking forward to spring. Getting ready for the long winter months. We also get invited to a few very casual get-togethers. There is one standing request every year for me to make Manhatten Clam Chowder Soup. It is so easy to make. Once it is made I leave it in my Ninja Crock Pot on Buffet setting to keep it hot. The soup is usually gone before the end of the night.

Recipe:

  • 3 Can canned chopped clams
  • 1 can of crushed tomato ( I use the ones I caned from my garden but store bought is ok too)
  • 2 stalks celery chopped
  • 2 lrg. carrots chopped
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 small potatoes cubed
  • 2 to 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 TBS lemon juice
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 TBS butter
  • water

In your favorite soup pot. ( I have several )  melt the butter  then add in celery, carrots and onion, Simmer until translucent and tender . Add  the clams but reserve the juice for another step. Add garlic , thyme, lemon and lemon juice. the add crushed tomato and potatoes. the add water to the clam juice to make 2 cups total. and add it to the soup pot. Bring to a boil until all the vegetables are cook to tender. Serve hot. We like to add a dash of chipolte hot sauce

The Coleman Craft Fair

Standard

I had such a wonderful time a the Coleman Craft Fair in Hurley, NY. I am so looking forward to doing this show again next year. I really felt that I was unprepared for the number of people coming to this show. But everything went well and I am scrambling to  make new and more inventory for the next show. Which is Sullivan County Community College, in Loch Sheldrake, NY.

The bags were the biggest success. I will have some new fabric choices at the college show. I had to remove the one listed on my Etsy Store because I sold them. I also have other designs for bags. It will be intersteing to see if I can get them done before the next show. I will be listing on Etsy again. There is nothing there right now. Just keep checking. See you all at the College.
