Chicken & Leek Stroganoff

Today, I am over at Blissfully Domestic, sharing my recipe for Chicken & Leek Stroganoff.  From the post:

     During the winter, I love to have something bubbling on the stove.  This Chicken & Leek Stroganoff strikes     
       the perfect balance as it is a winter comfort food without being too heavy.

Love Activity Cards

As a part of my Valentine's Day present to my husband, I made him some Love Activity Cards.  We are always trying to find something fun to do either as a couple or as a family.  I used some of Ali Edward's Love Postage at Designer Digitals.  I used Photoshop Elements to put them all on one 8 1/2 by 11 inch piece of cardstock.  Then, I cut them into cards.

On the back of each card, I wrote a different activity.

My husband loves going for a drive, so I know this will be a popular activity.  I got some great ideas from Simply Modern Mom's list of at-home date nights.

Now, my husband wasn't so sure about the cards.  (Luckily, this was not his only present.)  However, I vow to put the cards into practice and change his mind!

Tender heart

I am a huge fan of Lisa Leonard's jewelry.  John, if you are reading (which he isn't), you could make me supremely happy with a piece of Lisa's jewelry for any occasion. While I was familiar with Lisa's jewelry, I only recently discovered her blog, but I am so glad that I did.  On her blog, Lisa gives glimpses of her life and home and writes beautifully about life, love, and family.

Recently, Lisa featured a paint and glitter project that I loved.  I have been thinking a lot about starting to paint.  I was never a painter and I find it rather scary, but I am still drawn to painting.  The project was simple, yet Lisa's finished product was gorgeous.  Mine (pictured above) didn't turn out as well as I wanted, but I'm trying to embrace the imperfections in life, so it is displayed in my house.  Still, just diving into a painting project was thrilling.  Thank you for inspiration, Lisa.
