December Challenges

I've been on the Sketches 4 All Design Team since February 2011.  Theses ladies are awesome!!!  There are monthly challenges in the forum, group challenges and everyday chit chat.  I've been scrapping for 5 years and I have never been on a site where people are so helpful and the DT wants to be there for the fun of it.  Every once in a while Fia the owner will get a sponsor or send us some scrappy supplies.  I recently received a gift card from Fia and got to do some scrappy shopping.  With my new supplies Fia is having a sketch challenge and the DT will create a project using whatever items we bought.  We are also having a sponsor this month.  I hope you can come and join in on the fun.

4 More Done

28. Take my kids to the tide pools.
 Finally went with my sister and my kiddos.  Still not sure if we found the right spot but it was fun none the less.

 31. Take a drive with an unplanned destination.
 Took a drive up the mountain.  We stopped so you can see our house.
My son having fun in the car.

 At the San Juan Capistrano Mission.  Then my batteries went died.  After we went to the pier, beach, got a burger, stopped by a candy shop then home for nap time.

59. Make a pie from scratch. (This includes the crust.)
Decided to make an apple pie for the 4th of July.

81.  Make gravy from scratch.
 Now that I've done it once I've made it a few times.  Not as hard as I thought it would be.

Oh That List Again

I've been busy working on checking items off my list again.

76. Make Ice Cream

My in-laws bought me an ice cream maker for my birthday/mother's day.  They obviously have no knowledge of #8 on my list and that ice cream is my biggest weakness .  My first attempt failed horribly.  But try and try again and the second attempt went deliciously well.  Homemade cookie and cream, yummy.


13. Plant a herb garden.
Before
 After

And yes sadly my black thumb is already killed off the cilantro.  And, it's working on the italian parsley and chives.

59. Make a pie from scratch. (This includes the crust.)

In the afternoon while the kiddos were napping I decided to make a apple pie for the 4th of July.  :) Yummy, I can't wait to do it again.

You have all month long to complete your challenge starting today.

My Semi Green Thumb

77. Do something to decorate outside.
I created these this past weekend.  I love these old wood soda boxes. I kinda wish they were a little taller.  But all-in-all I like the way they turned out.
