Creative Life A thru Z ~homemade chips

Creative Life A thru Z
Jean Hart

Let Get Cooking 

Yes it's December, Yes it's the holiday season,
Yes I will be baking cookies and cakes, and candy. 
But for now because of all the sweet treats I will be eating this holiday season I have learned how to make my own healthy chips. 
In order to not feel like I'm completely out of control, I have also made a self rule of not eating cookies everyday. YES it's true. 
So hopefully instead of gaining 10 pounds this season, it's only 5 bls. 

Start with 100% whole wheat tortillas shells, pita bread works well too. 

I used a pizza cutter to cut them into triangles.
I broiled them for about 3 - 4 minutes, then turned them over for another 2 min.
You just have to watch your own time, mine was different then the recipe. 

Let them cool on a cookie rack

Place them in a air tight container. 

Enjoy a healthy snack in between all the holiday parties.

Creative Life A thru Z ~ The dining Room

Creative Life A thru Z 

New Kitchen

Creative Life A thru Z
Jean Hart

Good Morning Everyone.
I sure hope you are enjoying the holiday season. 
We are pushing hard to finish up the remodel in the kitchen and dining room. But, sadly to say not everything will be done before Christmas. 
Each day we move a little further to being done. 
This week the buffet showed up and some of the artwork too. 
So, with 13 mind blowing steps and four hours later we have a beautiful buffet for the dining room that will hold our china. 
The walls have been stripped of wallpaper, painted and furniture moved back in. 
We have decided since we live near a small marina we would go with a "Lake Theme" for the house. 
Here is the progress so far. 

Done painting and moved all the furniture back into the dining room.

New buffet, the perfect size for my china

New Artwork, canoes on the lake

I hope you are finding creative ways to live and enjoy life.

Creative Life A thru Z New Kitchen

Creative Life A thru Z
Jean Hart

Welcome, I'm Jean and thank you for joining me on my creative living blog.
This week I'm on a bit of a vacation.
At home we are renovating the kitchen and it was time to let in the construction team.
Without being able to cook we thought we would take a little trip.
Here is a few photos of how it's going.
Later after I get back I will post the final project.



 It's been a long six weeks. I can't believe we got everything day in time!
Our part was to empty all the cabinets, remove the cabinets we wanted for the garage, and then scrap wallpaper and paint......we finished on Sunday and the crew came in on Monday to put in the new cabinets, install a island and complete new counter tops.
It's all been very exciting.
So until next week, Keep living your creative life.

Let's Get Cooking
This morning I made Scones. 
The season is just calling for baking and certain flavors come to mind in the Fall. 

I made cranberry orange scones with a mix from Great Value. 
Just add 5 TBS of butter , 4TBS of milk 

roll out to a 6 inch and cut into 8th

 I have never made scones before and with a mix it was so easy. 
I added the orange flavoring to the mix, and I have to say my house smells wonderful. 
It make a quick and festival breakfast.

P.S. Why not sit in Nature for Two minutes and enjoy your scone

It's just a rumor I heard

It's just a rumor I heard

Yesterday, today and tomorrow
Life is curved, acrylic, 4' x 4'
Jean Hart Artwork
Yesterday is only a dream, tucked away in the recess's of your mind. Tomorrow only a vision, a hope and dream. The question for today is "
"What will you do today, while you live and breathe and are alive to make your tomorrows happier, wiser and stronger?
Will you sit and wait for the world, your world to change? Or will you have the courage to take a small step to change yourself for your world or the larger world?

The answer of course is yours alone. But, it reminds me of a quote I remember, "If you always do the same things you have always done, then  you will always get the same answer you have always gotten". It's something like that, and I'm sorry I don't remember who said that or if I'm quoting it correctly, but still it is something that has always stayed with me. 
Today, really is the best life you's the present life....the one that you are reaping the benefits of yesterdays decisions and planning for  the future. All things rely I what you do NOW, TODAY. 
Heart's Desires, acrylic 4' x 4' Jean Hart Artwork
Heart's desires, they come from within, from without. Idea's are acted upon and plans are made. 
Do they really only come knocking on your door once?

I think that's just a rumor.....for the people who don't meet their dreams half way...
