If it's one wifey-poo duty that I don't like to do it would be cooking. It's not the actual making of the dinner that I despise so much but the planning and shopping! When 5pm rolls around I just want to poke my eyes out. It's like groundhog day all over again. I look into the freezer with a dazed look and see nothing that's quick. Then I open the pantry door and pull out the good ole favorite… Mac n Cheese! While mom's may be shaking a finger at me for not feeding my kids a healthy dinner my children are dancing in the kitchen thinking I'm the BEST mom ever. Hmmm… It's not so bad after all.
Did you know before I sold Stampin' Up! I was a Pampered Chef demonstrator. I'm not sure how that happened? They have great products but again I'm not into the cooking gig and I for sure do not like cleaning it up. So how in the world does this tie into my project today? Let me tell ya…
I love the new set in the catalog called House & Home (#122577) and Now You're Cookin' (#121327). I love the vintage style of the House & Home set and then the Domestic Goddess DSP (#122355) is just super cute. Besides being so cute, the name of the DSP makes me want it. The million dollar question was how I was going to use the stamp set. ??? I have a few ideas planned for friends over the holidays. You can make very cute tags attached to kitchen ware gifts using both of these sets. I thought I would start with a card. I made this card for a new friend in town that just moved here. She really has it all together and has her house unpacked and put together. She really inspires me to get off my duff and get busy. She also sews and just overly domesticated. I think she secretly wears a superwoman cape at night….
Here is my card I am bringing tomorrow for her with a little gift to welcome her.
I really love the designer paper. I took two different patterns and sewed a random pattern over the two pieces. I wanted it to look quilted. The base of the card is Poppy Red. You can see the Pool Party in the DSP and my stamped image. Can you see how VERSATILE Pool Party is? It's a must new color this year. I also added a Vintage Brad near my Modern Label punch.
I may not be crazy domesticated in the cooking department but this card will even spice up a wrapped box of Mac n Cheese!. <smile>
I think we will need this set for Christmas/Holiday gifts this year. What do you think? You can see all the coordinating products in my Online Store.
Have a GREAT weekend.
