I'm Back!!!!!

Hey everyone!

The Pink Stamper is back up and running! I just got back from our family vacation Saturday night and am still literally EXHAUSTED!! I'm hoping to get my groove on again real soon. My daughter had pneumonia the entire trip so that was not fun at all for her. We are so happy to be home.

Watch for new stuff soon!!

Episode 70- Glass Etching with your Cricut

I learned this the other day from the Cricut Expression infomercial.  It's super easy and turns out beautiful!!

ETA:  Still much to learn!!  Always wear gloves when working with etching cream.  Remove ALL the cream from the surface!!

Easy Chocolate Muffins

Chocolate Muffins

2 2/3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup baking cocoa
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda and salt.  In another bowl, beat the eggs, sour cream, water, milk, oil and vanilla.  Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.  Fold in chocolate chips.  Fill greased or paper-lined muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake at 325 F for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.  Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

Church Poster

In our church we all have different assignments which are called "callings".  One of my callings is to help with the Relief Society's (women in our church) get togethers.  This December we are having a dinner called Christmas... not forgotten.  Here is the poster I made for this Sunday.  What do you think??
