Woman! you not know how to just sit down!....(evidently not)...

Somedays your just non-stop right?....Your going full speed the minute your feet hit the ground in the morning... In between Jewelry making I made a little apricot butter, MMMMMmmmm...the recipe is pretty intense, do you have a pencil? Okay Put a little apricot preserve in softened butter...mix well...DONE! Lately, this is all I can handle..Lol....

Of course once you've made the butter you need something to put it on. Rescently went to a "Tastefully Simple" party...famous for their beer bread... soooooo, opened a bottle of beer and poured it in the BOXED contents. I must admit, a wonderful bread! Normally I wouldn't think of putting Apricot butter on BEER this point I'm so hungry, why not!... Could be my NEW favorite snack!!!! Now that I'm re-energized....finished making all my cards and arranged them in a cigar box purse for display at the Jewelry show coming up... adding a little Mixed Media this year...

Just a sampling.....Little packages of 6 each... Tied with a ribbon eventually...

Hope your day was happy and productive too... xoxo~Kathy,,,


  1. What beautiful creations -- from the apricot butter (will steal that simple idea for sure) to the beer bread -- all beautiful -- but especially the cards. Oh, how very pretty!

  2. Those cards will do well, I am sure! Very nice.

  3. I LOVE your cards. Are they blank? They are too cute!

  4. Apricot jam is our very favorite so mixing it with butter has to be heavenly. Sometimes unexpected combinations are the best. I bet you enjoyed it when it was hot!

    Your cards are so very pretty.

  5. How do you get organized enough to do all that and blog too? I just finished a post about how overwhelmed I am at the moment. Maybe it is just because I'm new to this... or maybe it is because I still haven't figured out how to use Blogger and I spend sooooo much time editing and re-editing!

    However, I do think I can handle the apricot butter recipe. But my English Muffins will have to do!

    Always enjoy reading your blog :)

  6. I love your cards. I used to make all of our Christmas cards by hand--lettering, stamping, painting. One year we sent 300 of them! YIKES! Yours are gorgeous.

    I laughed out loud at the apricot butter. I was imagining hours of cooking to achieve a mellow, spicy apricot blend. NO! You meant REAL BUTTER! It looks delicious. And I LOVE the photos!

  7. Your cards look beautiful, love the display! Have a wonderful weekend!

  8. The apricot butter looks so good! I think I would put it on just about anything:>) I love the photo of all your pretty cards lined up with their frou frou and ribbons . Gorgeous! Makes me want to make some of my own!

  9. Everything is adorable:) Really..even the knife:) You have great taste..feminine and meaningful..And my how organized you are..We don't have that line here Tastefully Yours? Like a home party?

    Have a great weekend !

  10. I just wanted to tell you that your blog always inspires me in ways I can't even say or explain. Perhaps it is the lovely music soundtrack that touches something inside of me. Whatever it is, thank you so much.

  11. Hope you get to sit down before you fall down!

  12. What a lovely, lovely place you have here!!!

    The apricot preserves look sooooo delicious!

    Blessings to you,


  13. Loved seeing your blog for the first time!
    I've added orange to butter but never thought of apricots. And I love them- going to try it tomorrow morning. Wouldn't that be super on hot biscuits? I'm not quite as certain about beer bread. :)
    PS: Your cards are adorable!

  14. What cute little cards! You clever girl. And that sounds mighty yummy to me.

  15. Baking beer bread and apricot preserves and cards makes you one creative and busy lady.

  16. That looks yummy! Hey, I recognize that pretty faded floral card stock, I just bought that yesterday! I just love your creative space. I'm slowly taking over my husbands man cave to equip my creative space. Poor guy!

  17. My mother always loved apricot jam. She used to make these delicious little cookies with a cream cheese dough and fill them with apricot jam before popping them in the oven. I wish I had paid more attention to how she made them. Your apricot preserves looks so tempting especially on beer bread! Have a great week.
