I'm glad someone's crafting, because even though my intent has been to do so this week, I can't seem to get myself down to my space. Last night I fell asleep putting the 4 y.o. to bed, the night before it was helping the 12 y.o. with a paper. And with the cold, it's just been freezing down there, so I that makes it less appealing. Today, though, today is my day. Even if all I get done is adding tiny strips of paper to my One Little Word cards, I'm going down there!
Today's inspiration comes from Kristin Perez using the January Smaller than a Breadbox kit, the Carta Bella papers, which are just yummy. I just love these colors!! Her photos, with Santa in red and her girls in the turquoise. . .perfect.
Now, if you're planning to do a little crafting, or maybe you're on that January-high and have decided to tackle your crafting space, you're going to need more than just the will to do so. You're gonna need some energy. I made the Chocolate Granola Bars, pictured in the upper left - the original Pin is on the I Can Cook That board on Pinterest. My version the mini chips are still mini-chips - her version she added the chips when the goo that holds the bars together was still warm, so her chips melted to make a nice glaze. Either way, they are gooood!!! So good, you might just find yourself taking more than one "energy boosting break."
