How to use a rainy day....

My daughter has lived in Europe for 2 and a half years now.  Look what I found in her old room!!!!  (Bought at Michaels with her 50% off coupon)....  Amy Butler, two sided paper....so pretty...so thick...so fun..
 Thanks to Ruth and Emily...years back,  I scurried to Paper Source to buy some envelope templates.  Oh, I did not want to spend the money, but, it was oh, so worth it.  Using glue stick to close them and tape to secure them.....the two sided paper makes the envelopes  very sturdy.
 And, just look how perfect they are to mail off these treats to friends who have been so kind !
 Here is our rainy day treat...Mr. O'Quilts working from home; me fresh back from the water exercises....Homemade pizza!  This week at our local grocery store, Harris Teeter, the dough balls are $1 each. It is the very same dough used in their in store daily fresh pizza....So, $1 each for the dough...one today and more into my freezer...HT pizza sauce on sale this week for $1 a jar....eeeekkk fresh mushrooms and onions, adding spinach for me at the end...Delish!!!  And a money saver (for of course, Fabric.com)  Me, for one, would never want to have to choose between yummy food and yummy fabric!!  And, Lent is over....
All of the fun stuff having been said....hmmm I am so annoyed with Google Reader.  They said it would be over in July...but I think that they are getting a head start.  Every other day it disappears...just UGH!  I have moved things to Bloglovin, but thought I would work both ends of the deal till July...And, I cannot figure out Bloglovin....Just venting....ok, maybe whining:)

Great envelopes! So pretty! And that pizza looks pretty great, too! I haven't moved off of Google Reader yet, but I have also noticed that it is hiding sometimes... hmmm...

Those envelopes are gorgeous!

I moved to feedly and I LOVE it. It took a couple of days to get used to the format, but now I am very happy with it and think I like it better than reader. Take that, google!
