I've been called for Jury duty and must report tomorrow morning at 9:00 AM sharp. Do these people not realize this is going to put a severe hurting on my Blogging time? LOL! Knowing I might not be able to blog all week, I wanted to post about a few different topics tonight.
It suddenly dawned on me that I, MOI, have just reached 100 posts and I am almost to 100 followers! I know it is customary to have a little giveaway when you reach one or both of these milestones but I had not planned on reaching either of these so fast and so I have nothing planned, zip, zero, nada! So, I've decided to postpone my little celebration for my 100th post, wait till I have 100 followers and have a little bloggy party for both at a later date. I don't even know what one of those random number generator thingies is, so I will need to look into that as well!
As you might know, Elizabeth of Bluebird Papercrafts is hosting the cutest ever swap, an Apron Pocket Swap. I finally finished mine over the weekend and thought you might like a little sneak peek.
The name of my diner was The Chatterbox, a real life hangout of mine, growing up!
Here are two different versions of the front of the apron pocket.
Here's the back of the pocket showing a little pocket that holds one of my most favorite recipes, an amazing dip by the name of Tennessee Sin. I will share the recipe for this later, it is my most requested appetizer.
These pockets are constructed using the "sandwich method" as Elizabeth would say. that is, paper, cardboard and a second sheet of paper. Even though Elizabeth uses empty cereal boxes for the cardboard portion, I did not have any readily available so I used Bristol paper. Bristol paper is a very stiff paper and a great alternative to chipboard or cardboard.
Well, that's it for this week, don't gab too much while I'm gone! Have a bubbly day, Nan
