If Our Tree Could Speak.....

I Hope Everyone had a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

I borrowed this idea and title from the very talented Nathalie Kalbach's Blog.  Please be sure to go check out her Christmas Tree's story when you are done reading here!

 I LOVE our Christmas Tree, and think it is one of my favorite parts and decorations of the Holiday Season!

Finding just the right Christmas Tree is always a challenge! We in the Caramico household will not settle for just any 'ol tree.  We search and search until we find just the right one - and according to my husband and sons - it has to be the BIGGEST one possible!!  
( I have to be the practical one and have to keep reminding them that the ceiling is only 8ft tall!)
Their criteria is TALL and WIDE  - and I go along with them -because :
1.  I want to make them happy and
2. We've collected so many ornaments over the last 30years - and we need a place to hang them all!! :-)

This year's search was a little early.  We went on the hunt on Nov 25th, so that the tree would be up and decorated by a Holiday Party we had in our home on Dec 8th. We've been able to enjoy the tree's beauty and wonderful smell for the last 3 weeks, and I'm lovin' it!!   

We only went to 2 local places - the first one has been a "first stop" for the last few years - we haven't been lucky finding a tree there - but there are live animals -and my "boys" (23 & 18) insist we visit them!   ( Yes, I did make Baaa.. noises at them and they happily returned the favor!)

There were bunnies in a hutch there too, along with chickens just walking around! But again - no tree to fit the "Caramico Criteria!"
 So - off to our next stop - No animals at this one - but VERY nice trees!!   After talking the boys - well, mostly hubby, out of a tree the would have required a hole cut into the ceiling - we settled on a beautiful one - although they insist it isn't the biggest one we've brought home!  

So - here is our Tree's Story - 

IF OUR TREE COULD SPEAK  - it would tell you ....

...how after being pushed and pulled through the netting contraption ( I have to say - I wasn't sure it was going to make it through....)  we hoisted it up on the roof of the car, and it's trunk showed through the sunroof.  We wanted to make sure it didn't fall off on the way home!



...how we brought it into a nice warm house and let the branches warm up and relax for a few days....

.... how after a few spins - we finally decided what was the front, and lots and lots of colorful lights were added!

Next it would tell you that it was time to hang some special ornaments for this family... (in no particular order!)

One of their first ornaments - I can't believe it has held a place of honor on 29 Christmas Trees before me! 
*****
This is their FIRST ever White House Ornament, from the early 1990's.  One is added each year and is a special gift from Meem and Pop.  These ornaments were the last ones to be hung on my branches - I'm told that is how it is always done!
*****
This is a very special ornament - it was their first beloved Portuguese Water Dog - Lily's ornament, and am proud to hold it up high in a place of honor for them.
*****

There is a new Portuguese Water Dog Puppy in the house!! I have to say - she has been very well behaved and has not bothered me at all!!  This is her special ornament and the 2nd time it has hung on a Christmas Tree!
*****

Well, it seems that MANY ornaments hanging on my branches have something to do with Coca-Cola - I guess since so many members of this family work for Coke - it is only natural -and their red color scheme helps to make me look even more festive!
 *****
I'm told this red pine cone hung on their 94 year old Grandmother's tree, and is a family treasure!
 *****
It is so hard to imagine that their oldest son Nick is now 23 yrs old. He made an adorable little cherub with a big smile in this ornament made out of a jar lid and some decorations.
 *****
This ceramic baby ornament came from a craft fair and was personalized for their youngest son Jake
 *****
I'm not frightened by this smiling ornament - Jack Skellington, from Disney's Nightmare Before Christmas is a favorite of their youngest son Jake, and can hang from my branches anytime!
 *****
This is one of their first ornaments - it is from their Honeymoon trip to Hawaii, 30 years ago - somehow it no longer says Maui - just Mau - the "i" went missing years ago!
 *****
This ornament came from their 2nd Cruise on board the Disney Magic - sure wish I was on that ship right now!
 *****
Believe it or not - this is actually a hand painted oyster shell from one of their favorite vacation places - Myrtle Beach, SC - so cute!
 *****
Look at this is a special little grouping! Can you see the little house made out of beads on the top left - there are 2 of them on my branches - each son made them in pre-school. They say "Houses are made out of brick and stone.... Homes are made of Love alone."  The beautiful ship in the middle is from their first Disney Cruise on the MAGIC in 2001 with 13 family members. The Leaning Tower of Pisa is on the bottom left of the photo, and was a gift to their oldest son Nick in 2007, when they went to Italy.
 ****
I also have lots of Hallmark ornaments hanging from my branches. I heard the ones from the Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, are some of Nick's favorites - oh look - a Diet Coke can ornament photo bombed this shot! 
*****
A Walrus on a Christmas Tree? - why not - this guy is cute and makes people smile when they stand in front of me and see him smiling back with that big "toothy" grin!
One of my favorite parts of being a Christmas Tree, is on Christmas Eve, when all of the presents are piled underneath me.  This year, Maggie, the Portuguese Water Dog posed prettily for the picture :-)
And here I am - in all my GLORY - shining brightly out the window and standing proudly, holding so many precious ornaments and helping this family to CHERISH the memories that they bring back to them each year!!

****
I hope you and yours had a WONDERFUL HOLIDAY and I send you WISHES for a VERY HAPPY and HEALTHY NEW YEAR!

All the best to you!

Christmas Breakfast Recipe

'Tis the season for sharing - and eating!  I want to share a YUMMY French Toast Casserole that I have made in the past.  It was served to us at Bed and Breakfast in Pennsylvania many years ago and is really REALLY good! ( I tweeked it a bit, over the years, and everyone loves it!)   I'm sorry, but I don't have a picture of it.   My sister-in-law asked me for the recipe, so I thought I would share it with you too!


Overnight FRENCH TOAST CASSEROLE
9 x 13" glass pan  Oven 330 degrees for 50-55mins

(1) lg loaf of cinnamon raisin bread, cut into 1x1" squares -enough to fill the pan to the top
(2) 8oz pkgs of cream cheese -softened
(1 1/2) sticks of butter
(1)  Cup Maple Syrup (divided )
(10) Large Eggs
(2 3/4) Cups Half and Half
(2) teaspoons vanilla
Cinnamon Sugar *made with 1 Tablespoon cinnamon & 3/4 C white sugar

Spray glass pan very well with cooking spray.  Mix cream cheese, butter and 1/2 C of the maple syrup until smooth.  Place 1/2 of the cut bread into the prepared pan.  Drop, by spoonfuls, half of the cream cheese mixture over the bread and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar.  Cover with the remaining cut bread, and drop the remaining cream cheese mixture over the 2nd bread layer -being careful not to place it on top of the mixture you dropped on the first layer.   Mix the eggs, vanilla, remaining 1/2 C maple syrup and half and half together and pour over ingredients in the pan.  Sprinkle with the remaining cinnamon sugar.  Cover and refrigerate over night - at least 7-8 hrs.  Bake uncovered 330 degrees for 50 -55 mins.  Enjoy with extra maple syrup.


ENJOY!!

Wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

Our Tropical Get-a-Way

It's been a crazy few months here in our house -  We were blessed beyond measure to have been able to take a 14 night Disney Cruise to Hawaii to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary in October, ( and to be happily married for 30 years too!) 

Upon our return -we hit the ground running - and got home the night before Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast - and were lucky to only have had to deal with a week of no power and gas lines.    Then it was time to get back into our routine, get ready for Thanksgiving, and now Christmas.

I just wanted to take a minute to share a one page layout that I made while scrapping with a group of friends at the end of November. 

I used Graphic 45's Beautiful Tropical Travelogue to accent this photo of my husband and I, that was taken by the ship's photographer.  To say that we had an AWESOME time on our trip -returning to the place of our Honeymoon, would be an understatement, and getting there on a Disney Cruise made it even more "WONDERful!" 

I hope you like it and it inspires you to get your crafty on!!



The papers, and most of the elements were purchased at my Favorite Local Scrapbook Store

2 Pg Layout Holiday Class Nov 27, 2012 -Join me!

Hi Everyone -- I am back to Scrappytown and Bloggerville, after being way for what seems like FOREVER!!

I will update you all with another post in the coming days - but I do have to say that it has been a very interesting few weeks.

Hubby and I spent our 30th Wedding Anniversary on an AWESOME "RE-HONEYMOON" Trip, and arrived home less than 24 hours before Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey.  We spent the next week literally IN THE DARK and on gas lines -but we consider ourselves one of the lucky ones, and have learned to appreciate what we have and what we take for granted - ( like when you flick the light switch, the lights actually come on!!) So many others have lost everything, or had terrible damage to their homes.  We are thankful that all we were was inconvenienced, and are blessed to be able to say so.

ANYWAY.....  I want to share info for my next class at Scrap-a-Doodle Doo with you!

Graphic 45 On the Boardwalk layout

Hi everyone!

Before we totally let go of summer...... I wanted to share this full 2 page layout with you.

It is from the last class that I taught at Scrap-a-Doodle Doo a few weeks ago. 
The ladies who attended had a fun time - and "Got Inky With It!!"

I just LOVE the "On the Boardwalk" line from Graphi 45 that was out a year or so ago.  The colors are awesome, and I love how the Sea Glass and Marmalade Bazzill cardstock goes with it!  I added some black "punchinella" ( which is the scrap from sequin production - LUV IT!) and some other mixed media items ( netting, seashells, sea glass, even real starfish!)  The deep turquoise on the sprayed dictionary pages is Dylusions Vibrant Teal - I love how it POPS!




Here are close ups of each page:

Donna Downey's "Altered Brush Project"

Hi everyone!   I want to share my latest altered art creation with you.  I had so much fun making it - and I LOVE how it turned out! 

I altered this paint brush for Donna Downey's Altered Brush Project - you can read all about it - HERE on Donna's Blog

Did you every have a project that you pictured in your mind before you started to create it - and then it turned out even better than you had originally planned?  I am happy to say that is what happened with this paint brush!

It started out as a BLANK canvas - The brush is 4" wide and @ 8" tall.


I added some Gesso, okay - I added LOTS of Gesso on the metal section -and even added some to the top part of the bristles - Then  I heated it with my heat gun to dry - I wanted to get some color on this baby!!



Now it was time to give it a spray with one of my favorite products - Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - this first layer was
with the Limited Edition Color "Blarney"


Time to add another layer - I spritzed it with some Tattered Angels Chalkboard Glimmer Mist - Color "Inchworm" (love that name!)  I even ran the bottom bristles through the over spray on my splat mat!



I decided to use a piece of Punchinella as a mask ( Do you know what Punchinella is?  It is the "waste" from when sequins are made!  Cool huh?!)  I had fun using the BEAUTIFUL NEW Dylusions Spray - in Vibrant Turquoise - LOVE IT!!

 

BUT - I really wasn't happy with the spots / mask effect -so....

I gave it another spritz with the Dylusions, and moved it around with a paint brush -and I was satisfied! I love how it filled in all the "low spots." I then ran the bristles through the over spray on the splat mat too. I added a little "Waterfall" Glimmer Glaze to the bottom of the bristles too.


Now it was time to decorate!  ( THE 2nd funnest part!)  I knew I wanted to use the peacock feathers I had in my stash -I draw lots of inspiration from them - as you can see in this project, and on many others I've made. These came from a giant fan of peacock feathers that my boss brought back for me from a trip to India -- I have used so many of them on my projects, and have used them for classes that I have taught - I will be sad when there are none left.  

I also knew I wanted to add different elements and a little BLING to the brush -so I went into my old jewelry stash, and pulled out the beautiful butterfly pin, and that round bead/sequin dark blue earring. ( These were gifts to me from my good friend, and scrapping buddy, Pattie.  They were some of the costume jewelry pieces that belonged to her mother, and she passed them along to me, as she know how much I like to add jewelry/mixed media "stuff" to my projects.  It is a pleasure to be able to add these special elements, and know that they will continue to be viewed by others, both online - and in person in Donna's studio!)

I needed some orange to pick up the details from in the butterfly, and another good friend ( my sista-from-another-mother) Stephanie ( who happens to own the cutest little scrapbook and on-line store Scrap-a-Doodle Doo!) came to the rescue with the beautiful orange spray of crystals, and the orange bling gems.  The other flowers were from my stash!
(P.S. Donna Downey is going to be teaching at THE DOO, December 14,15&16 -click on the link above for class info!)

Here are a few close ups:


I knew I wanted to use the words "DREAM BIG" and I thought the Tim Holtz Alpha Parts/Random black letters would be perfect!   I love this phrase, and draw from its strength when I am faced with disappointment, or doubt, or feel sad.  The inspiration comes from the song - "Dream Big" by Ryan Shupe and the RubberBand which is one of my favorites.  I use to have it playing on my blog -but that service no longer works ( if anyone knows how to get music on their blog -please clue me in!)  You can click on the name of the song to hear it - but be forewarned - the only video I could find has an add that you have to sit through in the beginning.

Here is the finished piece:



I will be sending it off to Donna tomorrow.  Keep watching her Blog to see all of the beautiful brushes that others have sent in - and if you are on Pintrest - you can follow along there too! I can't wait to see my brush on there soon! 

I'd love to hear from you - feel free to leave a comment!

Thanks for stopping by!

Salted Caramel Cheesecake Shooters

Okay - I've teased some of you enough with the close up shot on my Facebook page
DISCLAIMER: These are little plastic cups that I had laying around, that happened to say Starbucks -these have nothing to do with Starbucks or coffee. They were just the right size - and a spoon fit in them nicely.

- So ... here is the post that I promised!

I have this new "addiction"  SALTED CARAMEL!  Well, it is not really all that "new" as it all started back in September 2011, when Hubby and I went to Walt Disney World, and I had my first taste of it at the Karamell-Kuche!  ( Not sure how you pronounce the 2nd word  - but Karamell I know!)
This AMAZING PLACE is located in EPCOT, in the Germany Pavilion  - Don't miss it!!


REALLY! How are you supposed to choose!!!?????

Well, Hubby and I opted for a Bullseye (His) and me (say it with me without drooling) a Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel!! YES!!
Excerpt from Shades of Salty CaramelIt was a hot and hazy day in EPCOT. After making our purchases,  we sat on a bench overlooking the lagoon. I remember taking my first bite and the carmel stretched from my lips to the candy, and then stuck to my chin. I was not ashamed to stick my tongue out and lick my lips and try to reach the sweet sticky caramel I found there.... I savored the little morsel's sweet yet salty goodness by taking my time (about 4 bites) and licking the dark salty chocolate off my fingers in public, in broad daylight!

Okay - now back to your regularly scheduled blog post....

So -I saw this pin on PINTREST and it brought me to a Blog called In Katrina's Kitchen. If you click on the name - you will go there too (check it out - A-mazing stuff!) - but please wait until you are done reading below, as I TWEAKED the "recipe" a little bit  ( THANKS Katrina for the inspiration!) 

Here are the Ingredients I used:

*No-bake cheesecake filling

(I used Philadelphia Brand in the dairy section by the cream cheese)

*Caramel sauce (Smucker's Sundae Syrup)

*Sea Salt ( OOPS!! not in photo - I used Cerulean Seas Course Crystals)

*Crushed Ginger Snap Cookies

*Rolos candy (optional)

Instructions:

1. Crush the cookies in a baggie, (1 per shooter)

2. Spoon cheesecake into a piping bag or large Zip Lock bag, and cut off the tip

3. Spoon just enough cookie crumbs into each cup - just to cover the bottom

4. Drizzle the Caramel Sauce along the sides of the cup, turning as you go, and then on top of the cookie crumbs

5. Sprinkle with a pinch of Sea Salt

6. Add a layer cheesecake, and repeat until you reach the top of your glass/cup -ending with Cheesecake.

7.Garnish with a little more caramel, salt and a Rolos candy (mini) cut in half, if desired.

8.Keep chilled until ready to serve.

I would say you could get at least 20 out of a the container of Cheesecake filling as shown - depending upon the size of your cups.

These are VERY RICH - so and the small size is perfect!  ENJOY!!

Leave me a comment if you try them!
