Five Faves Friday

Hey all! Today is a teacher inservice day, so I have kiddo at home with me :) Thusly, I shall make it short and sweet. Well, at least try to!

There were so many things to choose from this week that I have had a hard time narrowing my list down. I think some just might have to carry over onto next weeks list. But I digress.

Here we go!

#1. The Colbert Report- I love this show. Stephen Colbert is hilarious and THIS episode the other day about killed me.
#2. Homemade Clam Chowder- Fall has definitely arrived in the Pac. Northwest. It has been chilly and cold all week long. One thing I love to eat is a good clam chowder. This week I decided to strike out on my own and make some from scratch. I didn't know how it was going to turn out because I pulled a Dena and just made up the recipe as I went along. But here is a pic of the final product! And it was downright tasty if I do say so myself.

#3. Dingbat's Agenda-Found this blog the other day and it is LOADED with inspiration and just cool stuff all around. I followed links for about an hour yesterday from there. Go check out her site for yourself. She makes INCREDIBLE letterpress cards such as these from her etsy site! I found this awesome site via Jessica Sprague's blog (which by the way it is Photoshop Friday over there!!)- This site allows you to save, store and organize images on the web. I found a TON of inspiration on the site itself, plus you can save images that YOU find while out surfing the net. Definitely worth checking into people. Wasted a LOT of time there this week!

#5. Scrappy Fave of the Week- Making Memories Paperie. I am sure by now that you know that I LOVE MAKING MEMORIES! This line is a must have. I need to do some shopping. ASAP!

So there it is. Trust me, I could have gone to like 10 today LOL. Funny how that goes. Some weeks are definitely harder than others to find the goods! Once again, HOOK US UP here if you have posted your list today!

I also have a quick favor to ask of you my friends :) Zoe's class is trying to collect postcards from every state in the U.S. They have only collected about 1/2 of the states. If you live in any of the following states and wouldn't mind sending a postcard, please let me know and THANK YOU!

Love your fave fives, Dena! Had to come over here and check them out. I almost, almost, almost did a list myself last night, but could only easily come up with about 4 off the top of my head........and I didn't have any photos.....and it was I bagged it! But one of these days, I am definitely playing along.
Would send a postcard, but I'm in NC, and it looks like you have that covered.
Enjoy your weekend!

Hi Dena! I agree, Stephen Colbert is so funny! My oldest son got me whatching him. Chowdah?? LoVE it! I'm a New England girl so I can't get enough of that stuff. I'm impressed that you made it without a recipe! Can't wait to get my hands on that MM paperie too. MM is my favorite paper. Looks like you don't need a postcard from Idaho so good luck on the rest. Love ya! Oh, and I just posted my faves. Better late than never!
