Why Did the Chicken – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0023_edited-21

Why did the chicken cross the road?  To go on an adventure, of course!

Well today I am playing with the cutest Sale-a-bration stamp set, Hey Chick.  You can get this stamp set, right now, FREE with a $50 merchandise order.  Hello! cute chickens and  free, what’s not to love about that.

On another note. . . .

I do a whole lot of canning and storing food away during the Summer when my garden is exploding with produce, but I also do some canning during every season. Here is one that is perfect for Winter.

This week I canned beans, beans, beans. . . .Pinto, Navy and Black Beans.  I didn’t grow them, I just picked up bags of dried beans when I caught them on sale.  If you are anything like me, when you see a recipe that calls for beans you pass on it if you have to wait to soak your beans so they are usable, or pay a very high price to purchase your beans already canned.   You can can beans yourself for about 25 cents a can and it is so easy.  This is what I do.

DSC_0001

Sterilize your jars, bands and lids.  Rinse your dried beans and pick out anything that shouldn’t be in them.  In a pint jar add 1/2 a cup of beans, 1/2 tsp canning or kosher Salt to your jar and fill the jar up with water, leaving 1″ head room (space at top).  That 1/2 cup of beans will fill the jar, they expand a lot!

Process your beans in a pressure canner for 90 minutes at 10 pounds of pressure, here in Ohio.  You must use a pressure canner.  You cannot use a water bath canner for this.

DSC_0002_edited-31

I have an enormous pressure canner, because I can a lot!  My pressure canner holds 18 pint jars.  There are much smaller pressure canners out there.  They are a great investment and it will last you a life time.

DSC_0005_edited-16

After 90 minutes, let the pressure in your canner drop to zero and then take your wonderful, ready to use canned beans out of the canner.  I canned 36 jars in a matter of an afternoon saving me loads of money, at least $36 dollars.  :)  The next day my beans were put on my top pantry shelf.  I have all the beans I need for a really long time to add to any recipe I find.

Huge Hugs,

Dragonfly Dreams – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0016_edited-6

Hello there,

The images in the new stamp set Dragonfly Dreams certainly can help you whip up lots of dreamy cards and other projects.

 I elected to make my dragonfly pop in today’s card by keeping that main image very light in color to contrast with my handmade darker background.  I hope it inspires you to give it a try and get those hands of yours inky.
