Been gone for a while

OK so I know I seem like I have dropped off the face of the earth, but really I haven’t. I am not very good at this blogging but I think I am going to make a concerted effort through the rest of the year.

So time for news:

It is heading to summer so that means the Market at the Esplanade in Trail is going to be starting. I will be heading down there to try to sell some wares. I am looking for new ideas and trying some new things this year.

Last night I went to an informative meeting at the Rossland Gallery . It was all about the Monashee Institute, which is something new to the area. It will be interesting how it rolls out but I have decided to look into working with them to teach some scrap-booking, journalling, ancestry type of program. I think I need to do some research and digging on what types of programs are out there, but you never know , just need to put my thinking cap on.

 

I gave theses to MOM, loved how they turned out

New!

Ok so I have decided to update my blog name to match my other creative name. Just wanted to pass it along!
As I am known as Crazytraylor Creations, I felt my blog should be titled the same way, along with my blog address, Pinterest, Facebook, you know all those social media sites.
New name, but sorry same old me lol.

Scrapbook room

I wanted to share with you my finished scrapbook room. Mom was up last week and she hung my curtains- which I love! I painted my table top in chalkboard paint, I keep a cloth over it when i am doing any messy work, but it handy when making cards or pages and you have to write anything down.
I wanted to show you a few of my special organizers, many ideas I got from Pinterest.
The first is a tier I made from old plates and cups. The set of dishes are from a garage sale that I went to about 20 years ago. They are real china, but sad to say it was not a complete set and I never could find more pieces. I was going to send them to the thrift store but changed my mind and I love the result.

Next I want to share my glue gun stand. Kory made it for me this week and to everyone that doesn’t have one of these, make one! It is fabulous.20130523-172752.jpg
Kory also has made me some holders for my stamp ink. I have plenty of room left to buy more colours. He even added pegs for me to hold my sponge daubers( I just need to make more).

The last of the photos just shows the rest of my room. Hope you like it. You are welcome anytime to come craft with me ( you will even notice I have an air conditioner so it is summer friendly).

Cooking

So it was a very busy weekend, I was off to Kelowna and left the hubby at home to fend for himself. While I was there I made my uncle dinner and treated him to this amazing recipe. They are phyllo pastry filled with Camembert cheese and walnuts and on the side a cranberry sauce. All I can say is AMAZING. For those who know me well, I really don’t like to cook, but these are simple to make and are so worth it. So tonight I am making them again. I thought I would share the recipe, you will love them.

200 grams Camembert cheese
100 grams walnuts
Chives
Lemon and zest
4 sheets phyllo pastry

Blend cheese, walnuts chives and lemon zest together in blender, lay out you pastry and fill it with the cheese mixture.
I bake these about 15 min at 350* they will be nice and golden

To make the cranberry sauce use about 1/2 cup dried cranberries, add some flavourful spices, cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger and cloves, add some water or wine and simmer . Serve this with salad include grapes, dried cranberries, mandarin orange, apple, grapes and a fruity vinaigrette.
