Eating Organic

I've got several loves in my life. Well, maybe more than several! Topping the list, of course, would be my darling hubby, Carson, my kiddos, and my four grandchildren. There's nothing in the world I would rather do than spend time with them.

However, after listing my family and friends, the lines begin to blur and creative pursuits of all types clamor for my attention. Whether it's sitting at my computer designing digital scrapbooking products, shooting photos with my Nikon DSLR, looking through the pages of a home design magazine, reading inspiring blogs, trying out a new recipe in the latest issue of Bon Appétit, or shopping for shoes, I love anything artistic. And, yes, shopping for shoes is considered an artistic pursuit!

Seriously, though, one of my greatest loves is cooking. After a hectic and stressful day, there is nothing that calms my nerves more than prepping fresh ingredients with a chef's knife, hearing the sizzle of vegetables sautéing on the stove, smelling the amazing aroma that fills my kitchen, and appreciating the visual beauty of a perfectly plated meal. While I have always tried to create healthy meals, my busy schedule has often prevented me from being able to shop for the freshest and healthiest ingredients.

This spring, I became aware of a shopping service available in my area that delivers freshly picked, local organic fruits and vegetables to your door. I became so excited with the prospect of supporting local farmers while cooking with organic foods. The service allows for weekly or biweekly delivery with the ability to substitute and customize my order. I just had to sign up.

Our first box was delivered several weeks ago. As I opened the box, I saw fresh mushrooms, rainbow chard, spring onions, leafy green lettuce, and more. The vegetables still had dirt on them from the gardens where they had been harvested! Nestled among these earthy treasures were fresh beets. I love beets! Crazy thing is, I never cook or buy fresh beets! Don't ask me why because I don't know why. I just never do. Anyway, I found a roasted beet recipe online and served them for dinner the next evening. Yummy good!

This weekly delivery has been the catalyst for more change. First, I've begun to plan our meals around a vegetable rather than a protein. It's been so much fun to become better acquainted with some of the lesser known veggies. Much healthier, too! Second, I now have the time to run to a local organic butcher for our meat since I am spending less time and money in the local grocery store.

The final change ... and the most exciting to me ... is that my husband has started planting a large organic garden and is now raising chickens to supply us with organic eggs and meat. It's amazing how one small step can spark a series of positive changes in one's life. From now on, we'll be eating organic! Below is a layout I created to celebrate this new journey. Happy eating!

Favorite Product I've Designed:

May Day Collection Biggie
May Day Collection Biggie

I love the month of May and the soft colors and beautiful flowers that accompany its arrival. It's a month that is filled with memorable activities such as dance recitals, bridal showers, weddings, Mother's Day, graduations, garden parties, and more. I wanted to design a versatile collection that would result in beautiful layouts, greeting cards, invitations, and gifts. I particularly love the watercolor paint-stained digital papers that are decorated with spring flowers included in the kit. Of all the spring collections I have designed, this is my favorite. I've even used this collection in some of my daughter's wedding layouts.

Games

May's Forum Game: Boutique Alphabet Game!

The Boutique Alphabet Game is back! Do you remember playing the game "I am going on a _____ hunt and bringing..." where each player listed items starting with a specific letter? We are playing a similar game on the Scrap Girls Forum during the month of May. Each day except Sundays, a team member will post a new theme and starting letter in the game thread. Members then will search the Scrap Girls Boutique for a product that fits the theme and post it in the game thread. Entries are to follow the alphabet starting with the letter posted with the theme each day. Only one product per letter per round will be counted and products may not be used more than once. Collections and their individual parts count as one product. Time stamps will be used to determine credit in the case of duplicate letter or product posts. There is a limit of three game posts per person each day and another player must post before posting again. Member names will be added to a drawing based on the number of qualified product links posted in the thread.

Prizes will be awarded at the end of the month and winners will be announced in the June 9th Newsletter. Gift certificates will be awarded as follows: $15 SG Gift Certificate for first place, $10 SG Gift Certificate for second place and a $5 SG Gift Certificate for third place.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Forum Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.

Contests

May Monthly Layout Contest: May is a big month in the northern hemisphere for flowers. For this month's layout contest, we're going to give a little twist on the usual flower photos. We want you to try your hand at extreme close-ups. Be creative in point of view and angle. Even most point-and-shoot cameras have a close-up mode. Do the best you can with the equipment you have and scrap a layout with a photo or two – or three. Your submission will be judged on its merit as a layout, not necessarily the photography. Post your layouts in the May Monthly Layout Gallery before Midnight MDT on May 31st. Be sure to list your layout's product credits in the description or under the EXIF Properties. Two layouts will be selected to win a $10 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!

Club Concepts Layout Contest: Post your new layout using the current club selection (either the Scrap Girls Club or the ScrapSimple Club) in our Scrap Girls Club Members Gallery or the ScrapSimple Club Members' Gallery. Be sure to list all of the Scrap Girls products you used. If your layout is chosen, it will be showcased as a Club Concepts layout winner, and you will win a $5 Gift Certificate to the Scrap Girls Boutique!
