P. J. Crop!

I love Friday nights at Scrapp'n Savvy because I enjoy cropping with such such amazing women. You all inspire and encourage me and I thank you! I was called to repentance last night. I was posting the make-n-take and the dinner recipe and with move into the new location that has somehow slipped to the wayside. So by request I am going to strive harder to make sure this happens.

This month we have been doing soup and salad for our P.J. Crop feast. Last night we had Yummy black bean soup and corn casserole.

Corn Casserole

Melt 1/2 stick margarine in casserole dish -- Combine following in bowl:

1 (16 oz) can whole kernel corn (do not drain)
1 (16 oz) can creamed style corn
2 eggs
1 sm can green chilis (Optional)
1 box Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Pour into casserole and bake at 350 until done. (approx 45 minutes)

Black Bean Soup, modified from a Weight Watchers recipe

1 spray(s) cooking spray
1 - 2 bell peppers(or frozen peppers ), finely chopped
1 cup celery, finely chopped
4 garlic clove(s), minced
45 oz canned black beans, undrained, divided (three 15 oz cans)
1 package spice mix
1/2 cup water
14 1/2 oz fat-free chicken broth, or vegetable broth
10 oz canned tomatoes with green chilis, such as Rotel Tomatoes
16 oz canned diced or pureed tomatoes
11 oz canned yellow corn, drained

Coat bottom of a large stockpot with cooking spray or one to two teaspoons of oil. Add bell peppers, celery, and garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until veggies are soft but not brown, about 5 minutes.

Place 1 - 2 of the cans of beans and broth in blender and puree until smooth; or smash with a spoon or potato masher, and add to stockpot.

Stir third can of beans (do not puree first), tomatoes and green chilies, tomatoes, and corn into stockpot. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium. Combine spice package and water together, stir into pot and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes. Yields about 1 1/2 cups of soup per serving

Our make-n-take was inspired by our breakfast with Santa. Pictures are here! Yeah!

Happy Scrapp'n

Happy Halloween

I love this ad that was put out by my church. It reminds me of Halloween. For me Halloween is all about family time and make-believe. Often we would have family themed costumes which would draw us closer both in preparation time and in deliverance as we came into character. I love how the whole neighborhood opens their doors. It didn’t matter if I was the one staying home to greet the neighbors or if I was walking the street, it always warmed my heart. Today my kids are mostly grown and we don’t walk the street anymore but we still will have our family time. This Halloween will all stay home cuddled in our comfortable spots having our own “Bones” marathon and still we will eagerly press pause to greet our neighborhood goblins. I hope you all have a save Halloween. May you make this day a great family day. Families are forever and fun memories create stronger ties!

Happy haunting my fellow scrapp’n gals

This month is a special one for me. I have had several people close to me take on the battle of breast cancer. I held my mom's hand through her struggle and I know what a scary thing the battle can be. To all who have or are fighting this battle our thoughts prayers are with you. This week's layout was designed by Leslie. She is a very talented person on my design team and if you know her, you will know she has your best interests at heart. She lovingly designed this layout with my mom in mind. Well my mom is out of town and I don't have too many pictures she would approve of. I chose to put another amazing person on Leslie's page, my sister Lynnette. Her battle started 5 years ago this month and she is so grateful to be here enjoying and celebrating life. I love you Lynnette!

Weekly Layout!

Happy Monday my good friends!

This Weeks layout was designed by my mom, Millie Jones. She used the new Bo-bunny line "whoo-ligans". I loved Halloween when my boys were little. It was fun watching them pull out the costume box and play. They would try on old costumes to discover how much they grew. There would be some mix=matching of costume parts to create new costumes and then there would always be shopping and creating to add to the box. All these memories are best kept in a scrapbook. This layout would be great for all those moments with two pockets and many tags.

Reserve your kit today by ordering it online or giving me a call at 281-288-7289

Never a dull moment!

This week has been a full of hard work, loving support of friends and family, scrapping, teaching and bonding with family and fellow paper crafters. My heart is full of gratitude for a loving husband who allows me to visit with our children and granddaughter, parents who work so hard to help me fulfill my dreams, supportive friends who help kit, create weekly layouts and did everything in their power to have a successful P.J. Crop while I was in Indy and for a best friend who spends her spare time typing instructions, searching the Internet for much needed items, and giving the moral support needed to keep me going when I feel discouraged. I love you all and I thank you! ((((hug)))

Tuesday I taught my Razzill Dazzill Bazzill Class at Scrapp'n Savvy. We did three interactive pages to prepare for the upcoming holiday season.

For Halloween we did a spinner, imagine four adorable expression showing in the spider window as you spin to each picture.

You can express you deepest thoughts of gratitude on the tags that are tucked away in the pockets of this fall page.

Adding all those special Christmas pictures to this waterfall page will be fun. You can't have too many Christmas pictures! So many magical moments happen at Christmas

Wednesday morning bright and early I headed to Indy to play with Miss Mae, my adorable granddaughter. She was a little shy when we saw each other but shortly after arriving home she showed me her book collection in a matter of minutes. Not because she has very few books but because my gifted "Tori-Bear" is a speed reader! LOL It was so fun watching her flip through each picture book.

It was good to graduate from watching her to holding her as she shared her favorite books.

Thursday Rachel, Tori and I headed to Camp Camby for a weekend of scrapbooking and a little teaching. I was excited to hold my Razzill Dazzill Bazzill class with my Indy friends and to help Rachel work on a scrapbook for Tori. Tori turned out to be the BEST helper

Rachel and I sat across from the most remarkable young woman. She is a nurse who was struck by an illness that left her without the use of her legs. I am so glad I met Julie, she was such an inspiration to me. She is so positive and out going. I believe there is nothing that girl can't do. She plays tennis, water ski, ice hockey, volunteers several hours with Make A Wish. She reminded me of all the blessing we have in our life and that there is always something to be glad about. Thanks Julie for all the laughs and sharing your stories. Not such a great picture. I took it on accident while I was trying to turn off the camera but will be forever grateful that I have it

Two Sisters own the store Just a Little Bit Moore and they host this crop twice a year. There isn't a moment (96 hours) of this crop that you don't see them. That is one long work shift. You can tell they have a passion for scrapbooking and a deep love for their customers. Suzie even made sure she personally granted "many blessing" to each cropper. Tori included. . .

As a store owner I know how much work goes into an event like this and found it refreshing to see that they took a few moments to nap and rejuvenate themselves.

I love these ladies and I pray I will be able to run Scrapp'n Savvy the way they run their store. Going into Just a Little Bit Moore is like coming home. It is a happy place where you are greeted with a warm smile, loving heart, and a helping hand. Thanks girls for all you do! It was hard saying goodbye to the wonderful scrappers of Indy. I am looking forward to coming again. I hope some of my new friends will be brave enough to venture out to Texas and spend a weekend cropping with us at Scrapp'n Savvy.

I know my hardest good bye will come tomorrow when I have to leave this part of my family. I will forever cherish this weekend. I love you Jared, Rachel and Tori!

I look forward to exploring many more things with Tori as she grows.

Each visit I make either to Arizona of Indiana I walk away with a full heart. I am so grateful both of my grandchildren have come to loving homes with fantastic parents!

Happy scrapp'n my friends

Down to the nitty gritty of Scrapp'n Savvy phase one!

The trailer is going today! Oh happy day!
New product arriving daily . . . Yeah!!!! It's as good as Christmas . . .
The new bathroom has everything but the sink! hehehe so close . .

Finishing touches - Dad adding the base boards. . .
Have you ever watched Extreme Makeover Home Edition with Ty Pennington? He gets so excited and dramatic as he attempts to convey the reality of the show. There always seems to be a little drama with the time crunch as the show is drawing to an end and the family is due back from their well deserved vacation. Let me tell you girls, the drama is real. There has been a few set backs that made us all wonder will we really be ready for the Sampler? ? ? Besides not having enough hours in a day, the sink will be a day late, the parking lot will not be finished, some of the new product will not arrive in time and my parents truck was broken into while at their daily run to Lowe's. Someone felt the need to have my mom's cell phone and dad's GPS system and radio. It is rough when you see bad things happening to wonderful people. I am so sorry mom and dad. I would be ungrateful if I didn't express my gratitude to all who have works so many long hours to make this happen. Thanks mom and dad for believing in me and sacrificing so much to make my dreams come true. Thanks to Leslie and Susan for the many hours of kitting. Thanks Uncle Jim and Aunt Paula for stepping in with an eager helping hand. Thanks Rigo and Michelle for your endless hours of computer help. Thanks to my husband and children for picking up the slack where I have fallen short on my household chores. Thanks to a fantastic teaching staff your creativity and ideas are amazing. This list is endless because there have been so many helping hands. However I want to thank you, my students, consumers and friends! For wanting a store bad enough that you are willing to jam into one parking driveway, walk past our garbage cans into our back yard where you are greeted by two barking dogs only to be called back out again to move your car. Thanks for your support and understanding. Together we will build Scrapp'n Savvy to become your personal studio where you can learn the latest trend and have the newest products at your fingertips. Phase one is just a day away from being complete and phase two has already begun. I am so excited to have you come to the Sampler.

Until then
Happy Scrapp'n

Calling all painters!

I love this land. It has that quiet peaceful feeling that allows you to feel you are out in the wilderness away from every care and concern of the world yet you are only right around the corner. As for Scrapp'n Savvy's new home, it is coming right along. The leaking water pipe is fixed, all the mold infested walls have been replaced and the new bathroom fixtures are being installed.
These are the new bathroom walls. Dad got them up and mom is coming around with the mud to fill in the seams.

Dad moves on to the next wall requiring mending. Say good by to the Aztec cut out
Next step to get rid of the trailer that the house seem to be built around. From the front of the house you would never know but taking a little walk around to the back and UGH!

I will share more pictures next Wednesday.

So my friends who love to paint (hehehehe) It is just about time to put paint on these new walls. Starting at 8:00 am Monday morning September 20th we will be painting and you know what they say, "Many hands, or brushes, makes light work. Lunch will be on us!

Weekly layout!

Sorry for the delay in this post. Life is crazy here at Scrapp'n Savvy. We are so excited about our new location. Because so many man hours are required to get us in by the Sampler on September 24 and 25th we need to make Millies Memories a kit only class this month. Her class was scheduled for this week. Here is a sneek peek of one of the three layouts that will be included in this kit only class. We know how Millie loves punches so we will be punching all the pieces in the kits that needs to be punched. You can still reserve you kits by signing up on line or giving us a call here a Scrapp'n Savvy

Thank you for your understanding and patients.

As for the weekly layout this week. It was designed by me. I teach two different classes here at Scrapp'n Savvy. Lickety Slip and Razzill Dazzill Bazzill. My RDB class this month will be 9-29-30 You will be able to get a peek of those layouts if you are coming to the Sampler. I will be once again teaching three different interactive layouts. You can sign up for the sampler right here on my blog.
This weekly layout has a vacation theme. The quote on the layout is by David Brenner. It says, "It isn't how much time you spend somewhere that makes it memoreable; it's how you spend your time". Times are hard for most of us these days and it doesn't matter if you were able to take an exotic vacation or you ended up using your vacation days on a "stay-cation" the point is you take time to make memories with those you love. Some of my favorite memories where of vacations spent at home just bonding as a family as we took an imaginary trip to some foreign country, learning some key words of their native tongue and eating dishes from their land. You can purchase this layout at It is $14.00 for both 12x12 layouts. For a better deal you can pre-pay for the month and get all layouts for just $12.50 each!

P.J. Crop plus alittle bit more!

My friday started with a day crop with all of my Creative Escape Savvy Scrappers. These gals came to Creative Escape with me this year. The day was planned so we could gather after Creative Escape to share pictures and finish projects.
The day took an turn of events when my mom called from the new location asking me to come take a picture of their new findings. It seems the ceiling was being held up by a coke can. Crazy!

Well they all wanted to see the making of Scrapp'n Savvy (mom wasn't to thrilled -hehehehe-)
So they had a taste of our version of Extreme Makeover. I is still a big mess yet I think they all could see our vision. Kurtis took a picture of us out on the walk way dad built so you all could have and easier time getting you stuff to the door.

The P.J. Crop was a delight. We had a visitor from England and friends reconnected after several months of no contact. I love how the common intrest in paper crafting can and does create life long friendships. For dinner we had. . .
