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,

At the Day’s End – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0024

Hello there,

Let me chat a moment about putting in suns and moons in your projects.  A sun or moon has multiple colors in it, have you ever noticed.  It is not a a flat circle in the sky.  I’m the first to omit that I have totally created projects where I’ve not put any color in my suns or moons.  But as you can see in today’s project, some color in the sun really makes it look way more realistic, don’t you think?

What is your usual attire when you are stamping at home?  I’m going to keep it real with you, I’m in my orange leopard print PJs this evening and usually I’m stamping in a teeshirt and yoga pants.  Thank heavens a bra is even optional for this hobby.    I hope you are with me on this my inky friends.  I find it so much easier to be creative when I am comfortable.

Wishing you a comfy stamping time.

Until my next post. . . . . .

Hello there,

I’ve had this scene in my mind for some time now, well at least ever since I laid eyes on the Stampin’ Up! Brick Wall Embossing Folder, item 138288.  This embossing folder really sent my mind a whirling with ideas.  I’m glad to have gotten one of those ideas down on card stock today.  I hope you like it.  :)

You can see just how this was created in my tutorial for this project.

Wild Flowers by the Waterside – Stampin’ Up! Card

DSC_0033_edited-1

Hello there,

For today’s project I used the new Wild about Flowers two step stamp set.  I love the ease of using the two step stamp sets.  No trying to do multiple colors of ink on one stamp.  This set has multiple flowers that you can use and you stamp the stem of the flower in the color you want and then the flower you want in whatever color you choose, easy peasy!

I decided to give my flowers a backdrop of water and sky with a shimmering moon. I’ll show you step by step how to create this project in today’s tutorial.

Get the supply list and info on how to get the tutorial for this project free below.
