Courage Takes Small Steps of Change

For the past few years I have set some personal crafting goals. This year was no exception. If you're interested in seeing all of those plans you can see them in the page at the top of this blog titled My Blog in 2020

One of the goals is a monthly series I've called 

Could Ya?
Should Ya? 
Would Ya?

In this monthly series, I plan to try something out of the norm... i.e. a size of card I rarely use, a technique I've wanted to try (or try again), an unusual fold, a card for a bizarre holiday, etc. I also plan to try a new recipe on these days - not a card recipe, a kitchen recipe.

This month I decided to try something I've seen a few others doing lately - I stamped flowers with black ink on white CS... BUT I didn't color them. Another thing that I did that is not normal for me... I used absolutely NO embellishments.

And don't forget... there's the added feature of this series - try a new recipe. What's for supper? Now this month that was especially challenging. Since we're in a pandemic and our state is actually in a Shelter in Place mandate, I've not been to the store in 11 days. We have what we need, no worries. BUT we don't have a lot of unique ingredients for trying new recipes. So supper tonight is a tried and true crockpot dish (think ground sirloin patties and gravy and more) with mashed potatoes. But I am going to try a new recipe as a side - Navajo Flatbread.

In case you're wondering, last month's Pan Garlic Parmesan Chicken and Potatoes had mixed reviews from my guys. In fact, we all three really liked the potatoes fixed that way but none of us particularly liked the chicken.

Hopefully tonight's Navajo Flatbread will be a hit!

Love your card Jeanette - that is really striking! I am looking up that bread recipe... looks interesting, but way to much for me on my own, may have to do some adapting
Stay safe
