 Found the Camera today cleaned out car. I can't find my camera and its driving me up the wall I know it's in my car, but if you know me you will know there is no way in the months of winter that I will find it. The car is always a problem it always has so much in it papers from school (as I always leave it till the morning before school to empty their bags as I fill its bad if there go to school the next day with the stuff the teacher gave them the day before) and any way that is way too much paper. Have they never head of note books. McaDs we eat way too much of it "we will never eat in here, never do u hear me never eat in this car" what was I thinking I have 3 kids and no time. Mail and clothes and so much. I will find you camera and when I do look out as you are going too tired.

This is not my car thankyou for letting me use this

51 Breads mmmm.....

Got this new book for the library  it's called 1 Master Mix - 51 Breads . So i had an idea to have a go at making a diffrent one every week and see which one i like best. I have to begin by mixing up a big batch of the Master Mix so i can store this in my cupboard. Then every week i will go to my Master Mix grab a few cups then just add the wet ingredients and yummy extras.

Master Mix for Breads

12 1/2 C. flour
5 T. baking powder
1 T. baking soda
2 tsp . salt
3 1/2 C. sugar
2 C. brown sugar

Cobine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and mix thoroughly with a wire whisk, making sure to break up any flour lumps. Add sugar and brown sugar with your fingers. once again, mix thoroughly until evenly combined.
Store mix in a tighly covered container in a cool, dry place.
Make sure to give the Master Mix a good stir before using it every time.
This will keep up to 3 - 4 months.

Join in the fun with me if you r going to  please make sure you post a commet and a link thank you.

Helping Out Haiti

Craft Hope for Haiti Shop Spreading seeds of hope one stitch at a time
We got so much help in 2008 with the tornado and the flood. So when i can help others i jump right in. So i found this page  on Esty where you can donate a handmade things or buy something and the money they raise will go to help the people out in Haiti.
so if you where thinking of helping, this would make a great gift for someone and you also can tell them they helped out Haiti.
