Happy Birthday Mr. Cool!

I think this guy looks so "cool"....the image is from Whiff of Joy Stamps and I colored him with my copics. Used my Copic 0 blender pen on the jeans and jacket to give it a faded/washed out look! Pretty cool huh? I have another one I did a different way using the blender pen but will show it later....gotta keep ya in suspense as though I'm sure that will keep you up at night! LMAO!

Freezer Peaches

Some of you might remember me talking about going to an orchard to get some peaches over the summer. They had "seconds" for sale which just meant they might of been bruised or had cuts in them. I was just going to slice them up to freeze anyways so we took a box of them....then she said how about two boxes for the same price....well DUH of course we will take them!! So we ended up with 172 peaches for 10 dollars!! BARGAIN!! So mom bought all the canning supplies and put me to work! It took me a few days but I sliced and peeled each one and put them in these jars with screw on plastic lids to keep in the we will have that fresh peach taste all year! :)

I did not want to make a sugary syrup so I read somewhere online I could use white grape juice and lemon juice....seemed to work great! You just use 2 tablespoons of lemon juice for every 4 cups of 100% no sugar added white grape juice. Just make sure you cover the tops of the peaches or they will brown! When your ready to eat or if you want to use them in a recipe just thaw...and you can use the juice that is leftover in recipes too so nothing goes to waste!

Hope some of you can give this a try!
Enjoy! :)
