First I want to discuss pizza crusts. In every other state you get two choices of premade pizza crusts, either Boboli or Mama Mias. Here in Texas we bought a "fancy" pizza crust and made the awesome pizza in the article pic. It was YUMMY!

We haven't been in Texas for long enough to have developed a firm opinion on the state, but we do have some first impressions that I need to log to...

This card has a story to tell! I made it using spare shaker parts for the October 2017 Pining For Plaid Paper Pumpkin kit which came with extra foam circles and lots of extra sequins.

I am entering this project in the following...

We left Page Springs on 11/5 and spent four days driving to our first winter destination. The first two days in Arizona were wonderful weather-wise, Then we hit some cold rainy weather in Texas. I am so glad we opted to stay at a campground and not a rest area. We needed our furnace on all afternoon and overnight which would have ran us out of power for sure. Because of our plan to stay at a...
