Mixed Berry Muffins

Have you ever used these Yankee Candle tarts?!  They are amazing!  Since I don't like to have a candle burning in the house, these tarts are the perfect alternative.  The warmer is electric, so you never have to remember to blow the flame out before bed.  Believe me... I know because I have left mine on overnight many times!  These come in so many scents too.  Tonight I am enjoying Lemon Lavender.  Mmm!  Love.  

I am also working on my honeymoon scrapbook.  You know... only 6 months after we got back!  I don't know why I have put it off for so long, but I am working on it now.  I just ran out of scrapbook paper, so I will have to get some more at the store soon.  I haven't even started my wedding scrapbook.  So I am doing things a little backwards and late.  But better late than never!  Once I get into the mood to scrapbook... I am on a roll and I could scrapbook all night!  

I always feel like I have SO much stuff going on when I get all my scrapbooking materials out.  

Materials I can't scrapbook without: a wide variety of scrapbook paper, letters and other stickers, my paper/photo cutter, scissors, tape/stickers for pictures and my Sharpies.

Is there anything you use for scrapbooking that I didn't mention?!  Let me know!!

I hate that I have SO many letters, and some sheets are only the letters that I don't use so much.  You know you always run out of the vowels, S, T, R, H, and N just to name a few!  But I never want to throw them out just incase I can use them for a word or name in the future!!  

Love all my different colored Sharpies!!

Oh yeah, and I also made Mixed Berry Muffins today!  They are so yummy and easy to make!

  1. MMM! I'm making these! Look delish! BTW - I'm a scrapper as well! My favorite scrapping accessory is the Cricut machine. My mom and sister bought it for me for my Birthday a few years back. Anyhow, I totally empathize with you on the sticker letters! So now I use the Cricut for my letters and never even use stickers. I cut the letters with the Cricut and then I turn them into stickers using the Xyron Create-A-Sticker. You've reminded me that I haven't started our Honeymoon scrapbook...And we're over a year passed...So you are doing good timewise!

  2. Haha Thanks Maggie! I have always seen the Cricut machine and wondered about it, but I don't have one yet. Maybe something to think about!! That definitely would solve my sticker letter situation! And good... at least I am not the only one who has put it off. :-)
