Missing you

Hello blog friends! It has been so long. I hope you are all doing well and getting ready for  the fun, food and fellowship of Thanksgiving. My life has been crazy the past few months. I am shocked to see that I have not posted since September. Shame on me. I promise to do better. 

I moved! It only too a month to unpack most of my stuff if you do not count the boxes I shoved into the guest bedroom closet before book club last month. I plan to go through those over the winter holiday. The most exciting part is my new studio area. Right now, it looks like a craft store blew up, but I have a vision. Last weekend, I went to IKEA and purchased my first set of Alex drawers. LOVE THEM! I hope to buy a new storage piece each month until I have a unified collection. 

Basically, just wanted to give you an update. I have many things planned for the coming months related to Asleep on the Couch. I may even buy a couch! Most of all, I wanted to let you know I miss posting and that I am thankful for my blog followers. Enjoy your time with friends and family. Make sure to let the special people in your life know you are thankful for them. 

Thanks for stopping by Asleep on the Couch!

Happy Day!


Do you miss me?

I hope you have noticed that I am missing. Do not fret. This next month is SUPER CRAZY for me. Work and moving have me neglecting my creative endeavors. So sad. Fear not, I have recipes from my recent book club to share with fantastic pictures of the final dishes. 

Also, when you move, you purge. I have soooooo much stuff collected for an out of this world blog candy spree. Pretty sure we are talking more than one chance to win some goodies. The Light the Night walk is coming up in October. I will use some of the most prized blog candy items (hint PTI CHA stamp set) to raise some money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. My parents are both survivors and I do this walk every year. More about that coming soon. 

Just a reminder that I am still around, just a little behind on blogging and creating. Things will stay pretty slow until late September. I leave you with this thought. When I walk in the mornings, the acorns are crunchy under my feet. A true sign that fall is just around the corner!

 Happy Day!


Canning Week and a review

It is Canning Week over at A latte with Ott, A and From A Mess Hall Bistro I decided to join in on the fun. As you know, I have had a great summer of jams, preserves and slow cooker butters. I am not brave enough to try actually canning vegetables. One day, I will try. I hope to get some figs in before the summer disappears, just have to find a source. I did want to share with you my latest discovery. Awhile back, my mom gave me a coupon for Ball jars and supplies. I decided to splurge and bought the new Home Canning Discovery Kit. Obviously, I have already discovered home canning, but I was so excited about the possibility of using less water and making smaller batch creations. The kit includes a recipe booklet and jars so you can get started right after you open the box.

I used this on the last batch of Peach Butter I made. I posted about it here. I LOVE it! Less water, shorter time to bring to boil, less space on my stove. The benefits are numerous. I typically only produce in half-pints, so I can put 5 in the basket at a time. This would not be ideal if you have just harvested your garden and need to get everything processed and in a jar quickly. What I do think will happen, is I can be more adventurous with my recipes and try new things because I am working in smaller batches. I could use a slightly larger stock pot, but what I have works for now. I'll keep looking at the thrift store until I find a deal. So, if you are considering trying canning or already have all the other supplies, I suggest this as a great first step or as a way to try something new. You can order them on-line here.

Thanks for stopping by Asleep on the Couch. Head over and check out Canning Week. I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question. 

Happy Day!


Peachy goodness

A few weeks ago, I had the good fortune to drive through middle Georgia on my way home from Calloway Gardens.  If you did not know, this is where the concept of Georgia Peach was born. Middle Georgia counties produce the sweetest, juiciest, most delicious peaches in the whole wide world. Argue if you like, but I will not change my opinion. I stopped at Taylor Orchards to grab a bag of peaches and some homemade peach ice cream. OK, I stopped for the ice cream and happened to pick up a bag of peaches. I should have gotten two bags. Ultimately, they ended up in a batch of peach butter. I did save one to enjoy just plain and simple. SO Delicious! 
I used the slow cooker like I did for the blueberry butter I made earlier this summer. Here is the recipe:

15 good size peaches
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Splenda Blend
1 cup Honey

Blanch and peel the peaches, cut peaches into smaller chunks. Fill slow cooker and set it on low. Add spices and sweeteners. Cover the slow cooker but keep the lid raised by placing a spoon on the rim. The cooking process takes form 6 to 12 hours. When it butter reaches the desired consistency then you are done. You can use a whisk, potato masher or hand-held blender to smooth out the butter. Process in a water bath and let cool. 

My house smelled great while this was cooking. Yankee Candle should make this into a candle scent. Everybody is getting butters and preserves for the holidays! Just need to work on my cute packaging. 

Happy Day!


CHA SuperShow Make and Takes

CHA make and takes are soooo much fun! Each day I tried to set-up a decent picture of the day's work. This first picture contains a pair of earrings, the grunge paper cuff that I made at the SplitCoast tables, one of the Paper Crafts magazine cards, the cute button pin from Blumenthal Lansing Co, another cute pin from Papertrey Ink as well as a card and my super cute scissor holder.
This picture is of two cards made at the Kaiser Craft booth. Really loved their papers, bling, laser cut wood pieces and stamps. Of course, the third is a classic Papertrey Ink holiday card.
More cards. First from Archiver's made with EK Success punches and the Inkadinkado Spray ink, then peeking out in the back is a Fiskars card. The third card is another Paper Crafts magazine card. Closing out the set is another Papertrey Ink card using this year's CHA special set, Four Of A Kind.
This is the final set of make and takes. Sorry the picture is lacking, but I did the best I could with the setting. I really considered "borrowing" the black room information holder. Admit it. It made a perfect card display.  This set starts off with my other cute scissor holder. So fun, I had to make another one to make a set. Next are two projects from the Michael's tables, a key chain and a bracelet. Rounding out my collection is a heart shaped pom pom from Clover and a duct tape luggage tag from the Joann's tables. 

Are you dying to go to the next SuperShow after seeing all this fun crafty stuff?  I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question. 

Happy Day!


CHA Crafty Star Sightings

What a great lady! I am so amazed that she responds to all her comments and takes the time to acknowledge all the submissions for her challenges. I really thought she had a small group of interns responding, but Cath sent me a response to my clean and graphic card while I was at CHA and I had the chance to confirm that she was actually in the hotel room sending emails during the SuperShow. Now, that is dedication to the cause. I really had a great time meeting the whole Paper Crafts Magazine crew and loved reading my sneak preview copy of the latest edition on the plane home. 
How the PTI team stayed smiling the whole show is beyond me. They worked so hard with the make and takes. Smiling, instructing, posing for pics, demoing(is this a word?), stamping, smiling, laughing...  Papertrey Ink is the reason I started coming to CHA SuperShow and I loved the booth this year. How cute are those PTI aprons? Debbie is so sweet and always smiling.  When I asked for some support for my first blog candy, she included me in one of her posts. I really appreciate her effort. Hope she says yes to my next request for blog candy support...

While I was working on one of the PTI make and takes, I noticed this crafty star sitting across from me. Sharon graciously let me snap a photo while she worked on the PTI make and take. Among their many talents, Sharon and Debbie do amazing things with COPIC markers. Make sure to visit their blogs.
This lady is on point. She has style, business savvy and is so sweet. I had some questions about submitting for publication and Ashley took the time to give me her perspective.  We met at CHA SuperShow in Orlando. Now, I know I am not her BFF (I am open to the concept. If she is interested), but she is a source of inspiration through her blog and Embellish Magazine as well as the numerous publications and design teams.  

I saw so many other Crafty Stars, but never got a chance to get photos. It's my own fault. I always remember my camera after the photo opportunity. Not shocking, that I failed scrap booking. Next, I'll share pics of the many make and takes I completed at the SuperShow. There was so much to do and so little time.

Thanks for stopping by Asleep on the Couch.

Happy Day!


Finally a new blog banner

Working on a college campus, fall is CRAZY for me. I am trying to get items posted but alas, it is not happening the way I hoped. This picture is proof that I did attend CHA. I meet a great set of ladies that offered to take my photo in the BIG frame. Let me clarify for you, I do not enjoy having my picture taken. The pictures never seem to be very flattering. In this case, I am OK with the outcome. 

Also, Ashley Cannon Newell's husband, McArthur, took this picture of Ashley and me which turned out pretty well. Who am I kidding, I do not care if it is unflattering, it is posted on Ashley's blog, A New Design. I danced a gig and giggled when I saw the post. 

Back to my pictures. My cheeks always take over my eyes.  I really must work on my "pose" for when I am famous! I'll check with my stylist and get some suggestions. Oh, I don't have a stylist. I do have more to share about CHA. Hope this weekend I can get it all organized. Bottom line, I had a BLAST, saw lots of inspiring industry biggies (I was not as star struck this year as I was last year) and got my craft on at all the make and takes.

Happy Day!

P.S. I created my new banner using freebies from the Scrappin Cop. Go check out all the digi stuff she has posted. I could have spent all day scrolling through her blog.


Pinwheels for Paige

When I say I am not posting until after CHA, what I really mean is... OK, one more challenge and then I am done. Paige at CARDS Magazine requested cards with pinwheels. Here is my response. The medium pinwheel even spins! Have a SUPER weekend!

Just a quick post to let you know I am SOOOO excited about winning one of the prizes from the Zva Creative blog hop. The DT posted fantastic creations highlighting all the wonderful bling that Zva Creative offers. My comment that won was on Veronica Goh's blog, Treasured Moments. I had no clue they had such a wide selection including fabric covered brads and rhinestone brads. Check out their website to find a retailer near you.

Thanks Zva Creative!

Shabby vintage BOO!

As I mentioned in my last post, I am trying to create cards in all the styles noted in the new Paper Crafts publication, Card Style. Well, not sure I will get to all of them, but I did try Shabby & Vintage. This is the style I attempt the least in my normal card making, so I feel pretty good about the outcome. If you like orange, then this card is for you.  The one hang up is that Cath says this style is soft. I am pretty sure this card is not soft. However, I did master the ribbon, inking and distressing. Oh, and the multiple layers, too.  

I incorporated several different challenges. It has been while since I attempted to "Pile it On". In this case, I think it helped me push the envelop and be more successful. The stamped background meets Kristina Werner's Finally Friday and A Year in Cards challenges. The Get Sketchy sketch was the starting point for the layout. I know it ended up round, but I did use the papers to create the four sections and have a center focal point. 

OK, so now I really have to get some work down before I leave town. It is so much easier to avoid work by making cards, cleaning out a drawer, taking a nap, browsing blogs...Well, I could go on forever. Pretty excited about my Girls' Weekend in the mountains. We are going tubing in the Chattahoochee River. I bought a TON of sunscreen last weekend.  Pretty sure we will squeeze in a trip to Trader Joe's and IKEA! So EXCITING!

Clean & Graphic or Fun & Cute

This week Cath at Moxi Fab World is hosting card style week to celebrate the publication of the new special issue from Paper Crafts magazine, Card Style. I have not been feeling the creative spark, but last night Dawn at Wplus9 Studio posted her submission for Clean & Graphic, and I was inspired. Thanks for the jump start, Dawn! 

After I finished my Clean & Graphic card, I decided it also worked for Fun & Cute. How cute are those whales? I debated where to submit and ultimately picked Clean & Graphic. Here is why, 
1. A lot of white space. 
2. A simple design and elements. 
3. A quick and easy message.

Why don't you try your hand and submit for the challenges. Pushing past a creative block or out of your ocmfort zone is always a good thing. For instance, I did not distress a single item on this card. Lately, my Ranger distressing tool has been glued to my hand. Literally after the diamond glaze spill last night, but that is another story. So this forced me to put it down and step away from the Tim Holtz Distress Inks.

Short and sweet today, or should I say Clean & Graphic?

Slow Cooker Blueberry Butter

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is berry picking. I have accomplished strawberry, blackberry and blueberry this summer. Figs, while not berries, are coming soon. This past Monday, I drove to the Brewer Christmas Tree and Blueberry Farm in Midway, Georgia to do some pickin'. My friend Kate, who is my partner in crime when it comes to berries, joined me. We left early and it just started to get hot when we finished filling our buckets. 

Not too long ago, I discovered the Can Jam hosted by Tigress in a Jam. This month the round-up was all about berries! I love digging through the different recipes and blogs from all the participants. Every time, I learn something new about canning. Some of the flavor pairings are amazing. Things like, chinese five spiced pickled cherries and grand marnier blueberry peach sauce. I also discovered Blueberry Slow Cooker Butter at Food in Jars If you live in the Northeast right now and pretty much any where in the Southeast this time of year, the heat is a serious burden. I mean it is heavy and down right overbearing. So, if I can avoid standing in front of a hot stove then I am all about the cooler option.  Enter the slow cooker! 

I made a few adjustments to the recipe and the end result is a dense and fruity delicious spread. Not overly sweet and very true to the berry flavors. 

7 cups pureed blueberries
1 cup pureed blackberries
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup Splend sugar blend
Juice from 3/4 lemon
Juice from 1/4 lime
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg

Add pureed berries to slow cooker with the cooker set on low and the lid in place.  At the one hour mark, stir. After this, leave the lid ajar (hee, hee, canning humor) by placing a spoon, spatula, whatever under one side of the lid. This lets the steam evaporate.

Leave everything this way for 5 hours. At the start of 5 hours, add sugar(s), lemon juice, lime juice and spices. Give it all a stir. Take the lid off at this point, turn the cooker to high and let the cooking down proceed. Stir occasionally. (I stopped this part too early, because I would have ended up getting in bed as the rooster crowed)

Pour in jars when you like the consistency, leave a 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch space at the rim, clean the rims and process in a boiling water canner for 10 minutes. Store unopened jars in a cool, dark place. Should yield 6 to 7 half pints depending how much you cook it down. Information below is based on 7 half pints and the nutrition information is for one half pint.

Digi Designing = New Header

Happy first day of July!

I am amazed at how quickly the summer is flying by for me. As soon as I return from the CHA SuperShow, I hit the ground running with the school year. I'd like to say I am excited, but I am just not feeling it at this point. Needless to say, I have a TON of things to do at work before I leave for CHA. Which means, I may not post as often between now and August. 

I do have some exciting things in the works for August and September. This is another thing that might limit my posts. You see, I need to get all my ducks in a row. Anticipate at least two BIG blog candy opportunities.

On to today's creation. Look up. I made the new patriotic banner this morning. I used Microsoft Word, so no need to worry about the fancy programs. Once I completed placing all of my digital elements, I saved a pdf to iPhoto and used Picnik to re-size and add the drop shadow. Voila! 

The digital elements were all freebies. I used Lettering Delights' American Love alphabet, a pdf of the music from America the Beautiful (can't remember where I got this, just googled it), Sugarplum Paperie for the fireworks. Oh, the ribbon and flare came from Brittney at Britt-ish Designs. I think that covers it. 

Such a sense of accomplishment. Now I have to really get to my job...

Thanks for stopping by today. I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question.

Happy Day!

I'm a Guest Designer!

So excited to share this card and introduce you to the Creative Belli challenge blog. Early last week, my friend, Robin Kirkpatrick, asked if I was interested on being the Guest Designer for this week. Well, of course I said yes. So, I set to work on my card for the following sketch.

I flattened it a bit and stretched it a bit, but all and alI stuck with the original elements.  I made the pinwheels by modgepodging(This is a word, I am sure of it.)two layers of the printed digital papers I used for this card. Then I cut the squares using Nestibilities. I found a pinwheel pattern on-line and used it as a guide for where to make the cuts so the squares became pinwheels. I used a glue dot in the center to hold the corners, poked a hole in the center and used the brads to secure everything together. I think I should have distressed the pinwheel edges more before I assembled them, but oh well. 

The theme this week for the CARDS blog challenge is Fourth of July, so I hope to use all my scraps to pull together another card by Friday.  

I want to thank everyone at Creative Belli for having me this week and for hosting such great challenges. Stop by and try your hand at the sketch. Also, go visit Robin at her blog, Robin's Rubber Room, and see what great things she does with her cards.

CARDS and Paper Crafts all in one...

Happy Friday! I am not sure if it is obvious, but I am suffering a slight creative block. When I sit down to make a card, I feel less than inventive or successful. Apparently being Moxie Fab zapped my mojo. Alas, I seem to have found some creative juices this morning because I got up and made this card for the CARDS Blog challenge to use hat pins. Also, I used the current Paper Crafts Magazine sketch. I hope it is not an industry no-no to combine challenges from the two different publications.

This is probably the sparkliest (Is that a word?) card I have ever made. STICKLES galore! I was covered in glitter by the time I finished. I lost track of time and I may not be as showered as I usually am when I go to work. Oh, don't judge me. I am sure you have had to douse yourself in body spray and get in the car at some point.  

A few things about this card. The fireworks patterned paper I made using the glittery fire works images from Sugarplum Paperie and the striped paper is from Kellie's Kreations. Aren't you impressed? I mixed some digital elements into this card. I cut the frame out of clear card stock with my spellbinder's nestibilities and covered it with Stickles. I do not own any hat pins, so I just made my own using straight pins and the small stars. That should cover all the neat-o-keen parts.

Notice the new CHA count down at the top of the page. I am SOOOOOOO excited. Booked my flight yesterday and now I have to do some searching for a cheap hotel.  Where are you staying?

Bunk Beds, Tape storage and CSN Stores

A while ago, I was contacted by Jason at CSN Stores and he asked me to browse around their 200+ stores and do a product review. I was amazed at the selection and variety of items they offer. In my attempt to be good, I started by browsing the twin beds and bunk beds. My mom is looking for a set for the grandchildren's room.  I am pretty sure the kids would like this set-up...

 Of course, I am willing to bet Grandmother is more interested in something like this...
Being good lasted for about thirty minutes and then I started looking at stuff for my studio space. Oh, and I checked out the kitchen supplies, too. As I meandered through the site, I discovered this...
TAPE is all the rage right now and I love this dispenser.  These colors are great, too. With this, I know one part of my supplies will be neat and organized. So what will happen is my tape will be a shining organized beacon in the sea of supplies which is my studio space.

This product is solid and well constructed. Plus, the company is environmentally conscious. By shredding and using cardboard boxes as packing material, they support the reduce and reuse movement. Additionally, they employ and maximize the capabilities of those in community with developmental disabilities. What a great company!
I am looking forward to receiving my new tape dispenser. I'll let you know what I think about it when it arrives.

Meanwhile, head over and check out all their stores.
Happy Day!


LWID and Strutting my Stuff

Yesterday, I mentioned all the berries I used for Triple Berry Jammin'. Well, berries leave juice and juice stains, so I decided to throw some white ribbon in the bags and see what resulted. Pretty and pink shades of ribbon. From left to right, blackberry juice produced the darkest ribbon and my favorite color. Next is strawberry. A soft shade of pink that smells delicious. Last and with a purple hue, is fermented grapes, aka my wine. The bottle was sitting on the counter, so I figured why not try pouring some in a bag, too. The third ribbon from the left is actually cream ribbon dyed with wine. I think at this point, I was grabbing anything and throwing it in the bags. No, the wine did not have anything to do with this behavior. 

I had given up on LOOK WHAT I DID, but one of my friends left a comment about her flowers on yesterday's post. See her flowers here. How exciting to put a seed in the ground and experience the growth of such beautiful flowers. Good job! I am so glad she wanted us to see what she accomplished. So, I will renew my call for LWID posts. Create your LOOK WHAT I DID and use inlinkz or leave a comment that includes a link to your post.

To start the process, I will share this for the Strut Your Stuff posting over at Somewhat Simple. Thanks for stopping by I'd love to hear from you so leave a comment or ask a question. 

Happy Day!


Triple Berry Jammin'

Over the past few weeks, I have picked strawberries, blueberries and blackberries. My freezer is full to over flowing, so I had to make something with all these berries. Even though it is 110 heat index down here, I was willing to stand over a hot stove and make jam. So, I headed to my local store to grab some supplies. While browsing the canning shelves, I discovered "NO COOK" pectin. Are you serious? I do not have to sweat to death and dehydrate while getting a steam facial to make jams?!  A little leery for fear it might mean the jam is not legitimate jam, just some knock-off version, I bought a pack of the pectin and some freezer jars, only after confirming they were BPA free. I checked out the Ball website. Cruised through the recipes and then adapted the Berry Blitz recipe for my purposes. 

Triple Berry jammin

1 pkg Freezer Pectin
3/4 cup Splenda Sugar Blend
1 1/2 cup crushed balckbeerries (12oz)
1 1/2 cup crushed blueberries (12oz)
1 1/3 cup crushed strawberries (16oz)
zest of 1 small lemon

1. Stir sugar blend and pectin in a bowl, mix well.
2. Add berries and zest, stir for 3 minutes.
3. Ladle into clean jars, let stand 30 mins and freeze for one year or keep in frig for 3 weeks.

I know this label is LARGE, but I could not figure out how to change the size without making a huge effort. I'll do better on this part next time I post a recipe. The bread in the picture is homemade by one of my past student leaders. He dropped if off last week and it is DELICIOUS!  All the other jam is in freezer jars. I knew I would need one to test the final product so I just used a glass jar.  So I could share this with more people, I posted over at Blue Cricket Design. Each week she host Show and Tell, much like my LOOK WHAT I DID. The difference is, people actually link up to her weekly post. So, if you want to show and tell, provide a link.

Reviews thus far, " Yum! - I liked the consistency a lot. A little bit sweet from the Splenda I might have preferred just sugar. But that is being picky." "It was great! Did you see how fast I ate it?"
