Eek!! Rice Krispie Treats

While most of my readers know what rice krispie treats are my lovely Croatians probably don't...I remember the first time I spotted marshmallows at Muller's...I let out a yelp!! For real!! My kids love does my husband, so do I...the neighbours.....

Here's what you'll need:
6 cups rice krispie cereal (I can only find the chocolate kine here)
3 tablespoons butter
10 oz marshmallows

In a large saucepan melt butter on low, add marshmallows and stir until completely melted. Remove from heat. Add rice krispie cereal and mix until all of the cereal is well coated. In a buttered pan using a buttered spatula press the mixture evenly into the pan...if it starts to stick to your spatula just butter it up again.

black is the new black

Hello! How you doin?!! (I totally did that in my Joey voice!!)

I never really used black in my cards except for Halloween and probably wouldn't have started if it weren't for this chalkboard art obsession of mine!!

For this card I used Geometric Patterns and Croatian Sentiments. I also used some gorgeous pattern paper (which I tend to hoard!!!) The polka dots on the butterfly is from my very first JD stamp set which is not available now but I think I'm going to add these polka dots to a new sets...I LOVE polka dots!! you need them in all sizes! :)

Have a great day! xo

work space

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I spent most of the weekend cleaning up the basement (which is apart of our home but you have to go out of the house to go to the basement...make sense??)...I have such a difficult time balancing stay at home mom and work at home mom schedules. My kids are not in school all day like from 9am to 3pm. One week it's mornings (Mia - 7:50am to 11:23am and Marko - 7:50am to 12:15pm) and the other week it's afternoons (Mia - 2:00pm to 5:35pm and Marko 2:00 to 6:25)...did I mention the tons of homework...schools here in Croatia are reall
demanding and's ridiculous... and then throw in dance, taekwondo and Jakov's preschool...I feel like a taxi driver...I'll leave my house up to 7 times a day depending on the day and their activities...and I do it help (my husband works all the time) I struggle but one thing I think will help me is my workspace in the basement...away from the 'home' and kids...yeah they still come down a thousand times and there's a million interruptions but at least I'm not working at the kitchen table...I can leave the mess downstairs! :)

I plan to take more pictures of the's no where near done but it's come a long way!! I wish I had taken a before photo!! maybe I can dig one up somewhere..maybe my husband took some!

Pop by the JD blog and check out Natasha's cute Halloween card! Have a great day! xo

Jar of best wishes

Hope all is well! A few days ago I emailed Judith to touch base and to whine about how I was in the garden and threw my back out only to find out that she's been off her feet due to her back as well!! LOL My back is feeling better...but it's a pain I live with pretty much everyday...anyways...I wanted to share this card I created using Life is Good, Croatian Sentiments and Patterns for Him stamp sets.

...yes I'm obsessed with make chalkboard art cards...gotta get it out of my system! :) I also used some gorgeous pattern paper that I've been hoarding...I have a real problem using my pattern paper...I think it's because it's not something I can buy easily in Croatia...I'm really not a hoarder. Again I traced the stamped sentiment with my white gel pen...not perfect but until I buy a new heat gun it'll work.

Have a great day!! xo

wedding card

Hello! Hope all is well! :)
I've said before and I'll say it again...I love gives me so many ideas and inspiration like this card by Iwona. I just love her cards! :) I have to make a couple of wedding cards and thought this would make such a lovely one.

My heat gun doesn't work...have to buy a new one so I used my white gel pen and traced over the stamped sentiments...not perfect but I still like it. For this card I used Croatian Sentiments, Geometric Patterns, I Got This and Special Day.

Pop on over to the JD blog and find out who won my Noah's Ark giveaway! :) Have a great day! xo

Sretan rođendan

Hello! Day!
Hope you all are having a lovely day! To all my fellow Croatian...a very Happy Independence Day!

This card was inspired by Alice's card using my Suzi stamp set...her colouring is just brilliant! For my card I used Double Trouble, Geometric Patterns and Croatian Sentiments. I used Graph'it markers to colour and I did some masking too.

I added a gem and one of my handmade buttons. I also stamped diamonds and polka dots onto cardstock and cut them out to create banners.

Have a great day!! xo

I don't know why I'm relieved when it's Friday because I gotta tell weekends are pretty hectic too! :) Nevertheless I am glad it's Friday! Actually here in Croatia many of us have a super duper long weekend because it's a holiday on Tuesday!
So whenever Fall rolls around I bust out my crochet needle (but I should be crocheting all year's soooo relaxing) and I actually successfully read my first crochet pattern...I usually don't have the patience! lol. I practiced on a bit of cream yarn I had left over from another project...I'm going to make fingerless gloves with the grey yarn.

I also am planning on sharing how I made this clay tag using my easy! :)

Getting the kids involved in our meals and teaching them how to cook is one of the goals I have set for's my baby breading chicken! :)

Today is the last day to take advantage of our FREE SHIPPING (worldwide)!! :)

Have a great weekend! xo
