Great minds think alike!

Okay so I was checking out Tim Holtz's blog here and he is previewing some new stickers (add to wishlist...check!) and what do I see??? THESE bottlecaps!!!

So do they look familiar??? If not....let me refresh your memory!

This is the picture frame I made for my mom's birthday!
How cool is that? Maybe I'm more creative than I thought if I'm on the same wavelength as Tim Holtz?! Like I said great minds think alike!! LOL!

Thanks for popping by and enjoy the rest of your day! Hope to be back next week with something crafty to share. I have been busy cleaning up my craft room a was OUT OF CONTROL!!!

Apron and Recipe!

This is an apron my mom made for me and I just LOVE the pattern on the fabric! Isn't is wonderful? It fits perfect too so THANKS MOM!!! Hmmm, wonder what else I can get her to make for me?

And a few of you have asked for the Pineapple Zucchini Bread recipe so I thought I would just post here for everyone.
The recipe is from Taste of Home but I modified it to make it a bit healthier and my changes will be in (parenthesis).

Makes 2 loaves (I actually made one full size loaf and used a 4 section mini loaf pan from Pampered Chef for the other)

3 eggs (egg-beaters or sometimes I do half real egg and half egg-beaters)
2 C. finely shredded zucchini (I use more because I love zucchini!)
1 C. vegetable oil (substitute 1/2 cup of the oil for 1/2 cup applesauce)
1 can that is 8 ounces of crushed pineapple - drained
2 t. vanilla extract
3 C. all-purpose flour
2 C. sugar (substitute 1 cup of regular sugar with 1 cup Splenda)
2 t. baking soda
1 1/2 t. ground cinnamon
1 t. salt
1/2 t. baking powder
You can also add 1 cup of nuts and raisins but I leave them out.

In a large bowl, combine eggs, zucchini, oil, pineapple and vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and stir into egg mixture just until moistened. If using nuts and raisins add those at this time.
Pour into two greased loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

Let me know if you make this recipe and how you like it!

Embossing Bag Review!

Hey everyone! Wanted to share with you a review on my embossing bag compared with the Embossing Buddy from Stampin' Up! I don't own the one from Stampin' Up so I asked my blogging friend Dawn if I sent her one of my bags if she would test it out for me in exchange for honest feedback. I like to make sure my product is just as good as others on the market or in some cases even better!! :) You won't get any nasty grainy powder from my bag and the ingredients are ALL NATURAL!! So if your pet or kid happens to get into it no worries! You will understand this once you read her review!! I think Dawn did a wonderful job comparing both the products and if your interested in purchasing please e-mail me (my contact info is in my profile)! My bags sell for 3 dollars each plus shipping which is a bargain compared to Stampin' Up because they charge between 6-7 dollars per bag!!
