Anyway, big thanks. Really. It meant a lot.
I've been slaving away with my next Studio Calico kit and wanted to take a break to share a little gift idea that involves the new Documentary line, and also.... don't tell April but a wee bit of the next kit as well.
For Mother's Day I came up with a quick and easy idea that would save on clutter and provide years of memories. I shared it on the SC&T blog here.
With the same vibe in mind, I wanted to come up with something for Steve for Father's Day. Kimber-Leigh had posted on the Studio Calico boards a couple months back about a birthday book idea and the minute I saw it I tucked the idea away for Father's Day instead. (I *think* it was Kimber-Leigh. I can't find the thread anywhere to link it!)

Steve was spoiled on his birthday a couple months ago. The girls and I picked him up one of these:
4 eggs Blueberry Cream Muffins
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 t. vanilla extract
4 cups flour
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
2 cups sour cream
2 cups blueberries
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease or muffin pans or use liners.
2. In large bowl, beat eggs and gradually add sugar. Keep beating while gradually adding oil. Stir in vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, salt, and baking soda.
4. Bake for 20 minutes.
And that's it! Muffins and an album.
