Green Chile Harvest - Roast and Freeze You Own

Green Chile picked by me!

ROAST GREEN CHILE now, at the peak of the harvest, for use all winter.  If you can't get them at your local markets or farms, you can order them from the world famous New Mexico green chile growers, Hatch Chile Express.

Viva LA FIESTA!

Here she is!  My beautiful mother, modeling a gorgeous, hand crafted late 1940's Fiesta Dress!    (As a grade school student,  I was convinced I had the most beautiful mother on the planet!)

Old Books become New Wall Storage Folders!

Here are some great ways to create wall storage folders out of old books bound for the dump!

This is a 90%  recycle/reuse project!  Other than rescuing the books from the Goodwill bins and buying a small package of buttons, everything else used to construct these wall storage folders came from project leftovers.

While I was at the bins, I saw lots of discarded children's books.  If I had school age children, I would be making these for their rooms to store school art projects, homework and other treasures using large format children's books in good condition. 

Weaving again without a loom!

Just finished making these using the weaving techniques I learned in Diane's brand new e-book "Weaving Un-Loomed"!

I, of course, was her very first customer and, being her proud mother, immediately read it cover to cover!

Saving Summer II - Blackberry Cordial

Snuggled up on the sofa with your sweetie at the end of a long day of holiday preparations, gazing at flickering candles, listening to softly playing holiday music and slowly sipping luscious, soothing Blackberry Cordial....

If this little scene sound appealing - prepare for it NOW by picking all those fat, juicy blackberries ripening quickly in the warm August sunshine and making your very own Blackberry Cordial. Believe me - making Blackberry Cordial is as easy as pie! Actually way easier than pie!
