Ranch Dressing Anyone?

I love Ranch Dressing, my family loves Ranch…heck I think we drink it here!  I have tried and tried many different “copy cat” recipes, this one is the winner!  I love  I keep all my recipes there.  You can find me as Big Sis. I love Chef Spice Guru’s Hidden Valley Ranch Salad & Seasoning (CopyCat) Recipe.

I needed a label for my jar, so fired up Creative Memories Storybook program and came up with this.  If you would like to use the same label, you can find a PDF Version of my file here.


I love Creative Memories StoryBook!  The company is reorganizing at the time of this post, so I can’t link you back to the software.  I found it very easy to use.  I work with computers all day long and when I come home, I don’t want to put anytime into learning a program.  I craft for fun and relaxation and physical therapy for my hands….most of all, it’s relaxing for me.  To use a computer to craft….does not work for me, but when I need to, I do fire up my Storybook program (did I say how EASY it was to learn?)  and I will fire up my pazzles die cutter, also under protest.  Both of these products are excellent…that is why I purchased them….but…I would rather use a punch, sissors or my craft knife than sit in front of the computer …….unless of course, I am surfing the net looking at what you did!

Best Tip of the Week–Thursdays!

Each Thursday, I am going to post some kind of tip I have learned along my crafting journey

Join me and post what you learned!

My Tip of the week is about your craft knife. and the cutting surface you can use.


I was having a hard time cutting with my craft knife on my cutting mat.  Started researching on the web and found that others were recommending glass cutting boards.  So I went shopping, I found the craft boards pricy. 

One night, as I was cleaning up after dinner, I was wiping down my glass cutting board…..and….found that it was slick on one side, and textured on the other side.  Even more to my delight was the size!  it was 12 X 15!  Make sure if you choose to use one, that one side is slick.  You will need to work on the slick side.

Please share your tips in the comment area below.  Have the very best week! 

Hugs, Robin

WOYWW What’s on your Workdesk? Wednesday 231


Wondering what WOYWW is?  Just Click here and you will find out all about it!

I am sooooooooooooooo excited!  See that poor old craft mat, you are always hearing me complain about!  My new one just came in!  I won’t know how to act!  Except… keep my circle scissors and craft knife away from it….Yep, I must learn to do that!

You can see my pop-up gift card…yes, I have not forgotten that I was going to make a video on how to accomplish this!  Hopefully I will get that done this week.  My problem with making the video is that, I really like making my own backgrounds, not so comfortable with patterned paper, and I need to be prepped with decorating the card before making the video….just decided that, heck, you know how to decorate in your own style.  I think I will make the video on just plain cardstock, so you can see how to make this with your envelope boards….Maybe I should blog more, it seems to help me figure out my obstacles.

Let’s see what do you see on my desk…and floor…well, you can see my storage solution for rubber stamps.  I place my rubber stamps in large zip lock bags and number the bags, which then go into a box, of course in numerical order.  The description of each of the stamps is in an access data-base I created, so, all I have to do is search, Christmas for example…which is what I did and those bags are under my desk…I can also with one click, print out photos of each stamp, which I house in a binder.

See that stinken mess of distress inks?  I have got to find a better way to house theses.  If you have any ideas….Please comment below!

On last thing, I dragged out my Distrezz-it-all from Zutter, I am leaving that dern thing on my desk!  I use it all the time, when I can see it!

Have a wonderful week!  Remember to check back here on Thursdays, where you can share your tip of the week!
