So much more than scrapbooking

Little did I know when I joined the scrapbook community that I would learn so much else along the way. Scrapbookers are truly multi-talented people! My husband could never understand how I could spend time just blog hopping, until he started to see the benefits for himself that is.

Take yesterday, I finished work at 2pm, came home, checked out a few blogs, found the recipe for scrummy fish, ciabatta and pancetta kebabs on Mel's blog. Noticed a link on Deb's blog to here for crash hot potatoes and suddenly the age old 'what shall we have for dinner tonight that's a bit different' dilemma was solved. Here's the proof:

I used salmon instead of monkfish tails as at 4pm on a Friday afternoon, my Sainsbury's doesn't have the best selection of fresh fish! Let's just say, the husband now thinks I am a domestic goddess and a couple of new recipes have been added to the folder.
Thanks everyone for your suggestions re stamps yesterday, I'm determined to master the art of stamping and I have a few new websites to go and browse around now. Thank goodness for half term ;-)

So funny, Deb. I feel the same way - had no idea that so many different possibilities would open up through scrapbooking! ;o) It seems like I'm constantly using the phrase "I saw this on a blog..." and I couldn't be happier about it. It's a fun ride, isn't it?

Your dinner looks yummy!!!

lol! Your version looks great, and what a good idea to pair them with Deb's potatoes - that recipe is on my 'to try' list too, and I may need to make the skewers again!

PS New recipes will keep appearing on my blog - can't guarantee that they'll be such a success, but it's fun trying them! x

I know what you mean, I'm constantly being inspired to try recipes, sewing crafts, altered art, cards, etc, whilst having a laugh or feeling emotional reading what everyone's up too. I can't believe it when I meet people who don't read any blogs - they don't know what they're missing!
