Tim Holtz Crackle Paint

This weekend my Aunt had a yard sale.  While I was at this yard sale gathering my things that didn't sale I found a tin watering can that I thought would make a great altered project.  On my way home I thought about the crackle paint and as soon as I got home I began to work on it.  I sanded down the tin where the paint wasn't smooth and picked the spiced marmalade.  I laid it on thick in some places and thin in others so that hopefully I'd be able to show ya'll exactly what it would do.  Well after painting it I just went crazy and did it all up so here are the pics of the crackle and of the finished product!  (products used: petaloo pallet, retro; tim holtz crackled paint, spiced marmalade; misc. ribbon; cloth covered brads, sorry don't remember by who)

Scrapbooking Recipes

With the holidays coming so fast we need more hours in our day. One way I've found to help is quick and easy meals. Here is one that I love to use when I have a full day.

Lazy Log Cabin Casserole:

1lb stew meat cubed
1 can of Cream of Celery
1 can of Cram of Mushroom
1 packet of Beef Onion Soup (I don't use this. I just add salt, pepper, garlic powder and dried minced onions but I'm an eye ball cook)
Toss all this in the crock pot together give it a stir put it on low and cook it for 6 - 8 hours. Home cooked meal with just a few moments prep. Put a salad bag with it and your hubby can't be upset that there isn't a home cooked meal on the table.
