Baking in a Can (DIY tutorial) - Love thy Neighbor...

Hi there, OMG... did I let some time pass by again?
I have something so fun to share!

Well... If you live in the country  like we do... it sometimes get's a bit of a challenge to make friends.
Or even to get to know your neighbors.

Don't get me wrong...
We love and enjoy living in the country...
We always have beautiful views, 
at night we can see the constellations so clearly, 
 and we rarely hear the loud music from neighbors that are again party-ing. 
But sometimes it tends to get a little lonely...

So when my kids (a few weeks ago) started chattin' through the chain link fence to a couple of kids at the other side... of course we had to introduce ourselves and we got acquainted...
Mind you that we are always a tad bit careful... 
you never know what you get yourselves into...
Lots of people choose to live in the country...
for peace and quiet and do not want to be bothered.

But, we hit it of so well that we have been getting the families together like, well, many a times since!

The mom has even helped me out with babysitting my bunch! 
Sometimes you just feel immediately that it is okay...
So when I was baking a couple of banana breads the other day I made one for my newest friend.
My neighbor...
Cause I just love my neighbor (especially a good neighbor)
And when you love the contact you have with your neighbor you need to pamper it!

I have put a little tutorial together for baking in a can..
You can read up and do this little DIY by just clicking on the read more...

In Print - Altered Couture

You forget about it for a while... 
And suddenly the date of your feature is official.

And such an honor it is to be in Altered Couture with my customized denim jacket for little girls.
A quarterly magazine so pretty it looks like a book.

Many Thank You's to the sweet staff at Stampington!
It looks awesome!
