Time To Celebrate!

Four years ago today I started blogging! WOW, where does time go? A lot has happened in that time. To mark the occasion, I have some goodies to give away.

There are stamps, paper, embellies, some of Jody's awesome dimensional boosters, a mini 2011 CD calendar ready for you to stamp, and a wooden card display holder thingy made by my wonderful hubby. How is that for a technical term, lol?

Anyway, leave a comment on this post and I will draw one winner. I don't really care what you comment about so feel free to tell me what you might like to see more of, things that make you happy, any good recipes you have to share. I'm flexible ;). You have until Saturday at midnight, EST to leave your comment and I will announce the winner after that.

Yes, I will be offering up the PDF files for the mini CD calendars again this year. I am tweaking my files and hope to have them up later this week. They make great teacher and co-worker gifts!

I baked a big pan of brownies to celebrate 4 years. Mmmmm! I'd rather play hookie from work but chocolate will have to do.

Hi Tracy, I just wanted to tell you how much I like your cards, and projects. The thing I love the most about your work is how you are not afraid of white space. I also enjoy your humor, life can be so demanding at times, and I love pulling up your emails, and reading your sarcasm! We must be close to the same age, because I can relate to so many things you say. Blessings to you, Rea

Congrats on 4 years! As a teacher and being a mother of a school aged child I would love some ideas for teacher gifts. My daughter's preschool has 15 teachers and so the gifts need to be easy and not too expensive. Thanks for the chance to win!

Hi Tracy,
Congratulations on your blog anniversary. I love the bookmark. I know what you mean about bittersweet - you're right to cherish the years you have your children with you and not wish them away - my children are grown up now, my son has moved to another city and my daughter is moving soon. It's good to see them growing into their own people, but I cherish the memories of the years gone by. . .
Hugs, Anne.

I have a great recipe

Caprese Pasta Salad

1 box cherry tomatoes washed
1 or 2 boxes basil, chiffonade or cut into thin strips, I use lots, more like a salad green
1/4-1/2 c lemon juice
2-3tbsp EvOO
1 lb cooked penne rigate
S&P to taste
1 tub (2cups) boconccini (fresh mozza) balls, bite sized or smaller
2tsp chopped garlic or to taste

Mix all ingredients with hot pasta. Enjoy hot, warm or cold. It is warm as mixed with cheese and tomatoes from the fridge and hot pasta-my favorite. Great for picnics.

A simple and tasty recipe.
Russian Chicken
1 envelope of Lipton Onion Soup Mix
1 Small Jar of Apricot Preserves
1 Small Bottle of Kraft Russian Dressing
Chicken ....I usually do a family pack of all thighs.

Mix the first 3 ingredients
Remove skin from chicken and dip each piece then put in pan, pour rest of the mixture over the chicken pieces, cover and bake at 350 deg. for about 40/45 minutes. Remove cover and bake and additional 15 minutes till mixture is thick and bubbly. Goes great with rice or noodles since you can spoon some of the liquids onto them.
