Would You Rather Thursday

These questions were taken from the official Would You Rather board game. I hope you guys will play along and tell me which would you rather:
  • As a woman, wear high heels on a camping trip or have to wear Birkenstocks to the Oscar's (in plain view, of course)?
  • Have the bad habit for the rest of your life of licking your fingers excessively when you eat or have the bad habit for the rest of your life of frequently scratching your behind?
  • As a spouse taking a new name, have it be Doodoo or Klepnermierhelgenermanson?
  • Be able to walk on water for the rest of your life or fly for 3 hours on three different occasions in your life?
  • For the same amount of money, have a job you love and have to work 60 hours a week or have a job you absolutely hate but only have to work 25 hours a week?
  • Always be itchy or always feel like you have to pee?
  • Inherit $100,000 or inherit the key to and the contents of one random safety deposit box at a Swiss bank?

Sunday Confessions: Guilty Pleasures

Happy, happy Sunday.

Today is a favorite day of mine. It is the Academy Awards. I faithfully watch them EVERY single year. It is one of my guilty pleasures.

I enjoy watching the stars walk down the red carpet, seeing what they are wearing, analyzing the trends, gawking at the beautiful jewels, and saying "bless her heart" when I see someone wearing something hideous. Oh, and I am slightly interested in who and what wins.

Today's question is: What is your guilty pleasure(s)? Or if you don't want to answer that feel free to confess anything that is on your mind.

For Christmas last year my sister and I got our mom a recipe box for all her stray pieces of paper here and there with our family favorites recipes. We got this one from Container Store.

While we were visiting for Christmas we gathered up all of her recipes and wrote them out on fun cards. Then we put them in a protective sleeve. This is key because you know how those cards get all kinds of stuff on them.

I loved this recipe box and idea so much I went out and bought myself one. Slowly, ever so slowly, I am gathering and writing all my recipes down in one place. The only problem is that I didn't want to use the generic cards BLAH cards and the ones we used for my moms, well I can't find them any more.

So today, I came across this great idea from Jackie Hernandez at Crafting a Green World. You can print recipe cards onto used brown paper bags. They look great and you might just helping the earth out too. Click here for a tutorial and a free PDF file to download. LOVE IT!

Tried and True Tuesday: A recipe

This is a common dinner at our house. I tend to always keep the ingredients for this in my pantry because we like it a lot. It is quick and easy and oh so yummy. I don't measure anything. I just throw it all together. A little bit of this or a little bit of that. I use what I have and leave out what I don't.

Fast and Easy Chinese Chicken Salad
  • bag of green lettuce
  • can of mandarin oranges
  • can of water chestnuts
  • handful of sliced almonds
  • chopped green onion (I don't always have this but use it if I do)
  • cooked chicken (I buy the already cooked rotisserie in the deli section- I get make a lot of meals from this because of how easy it is. It is all about saving time when you are a busy work from home mom!)
  • asian sesame salad dressing

Mix it all together and add chow mien crunchy noodles to the top before serving.

Happy New Year + New stuff

Sweet Papery had a banner year in 2008! Thank you to our "sweet" customer who have been so supportive and patient as we have experienced growing pains. This 2008 holiday season we shipped well over 800 stamps!

A well needed break was taken during the holidays while we were closed. Back in the studio, refreshed, renewed and ready to get down to business, we have been working on new designs, putting together new products and collaborating with some fabulous artists! Our website is almost finished too. We hope to open on January 12th (not all products will be listed but a good portion of them will be)!
You are in for a treat as we prepare for many exciting changes throughout the year here at Sweet Papery. Here is a sneak peek of a few new designs launching Monday, January 12th. Don't forget to sign up for our NEWSLETTER to receive exclusive discounts!
