From My Kitchen

Where have I been??? Oh the places, oh the things...the boys started school and everyone is adjusting to that. My MIL came for a few days to help around the house. We got dirty in the garden, trying to reclaim the overgrown landscaping. What a chore! We spent the entire day on Friday canning. We made more spaghetti sauce as well as some peach jam. I started a part time job this week at the church. I will be working full days on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the office. There just aren't enough hours in the day, not to mention energy, to do all the things I want or need to do. Yes, I do believe I will have some cheese with that whine, LOL!!
Someone at church just moved into a new house so I thought I would put together a housewarming basket using some of freshly canned goodies. I have some banana bread to bake to finish it off. I used the Labelicious stamp set to make the little card and tag on the peach jar. The other tag uses a stamp from the Priceless set. I used groovy guava and chocolate chip, the scallop flower punch, circle punches and ribbon.
I am working on samples for my upcoming host club, Christmas card SAS and a class I am doing at church. I will post those at another time.
