A Gift for the “Storyteller”

Part of telling a new story, is telling it in new ways.


Close your eyes. Picture your family… who in your family is the story teller? Do you have him…or her pictured in your mind? Okay, now how about a really simple gift (under 10 dollars) that will help that person do even more of what they love to do….


“roll film!”

dice game for under TEN BUCKS

All you need is three main things:

You will need four different colors of paint and out of the pack of cubes, you need four.

waiting for paint to dry

Paint the cubes all different colors of your choice. Let dry. Can you believe it? …your almost done chickadee!

Make each die either a, setting, character, plot, or time die.

For example: Orange rolls the character,

Pink rolls the time…etc.

Write the theme on each die. For example: Character die has (written on each side) Santa, Surfer, Penguin, Zoo Keeper, etc. Here are some ideas to get you “rolling” Heehee! ;)

A Tutorial of Deliciousness…

The Ultimate Brownie Recipe!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

recipe 134

If you like nuts in your brownies, start by toasting about a cup to a cup and a half of pecans in a medium sauce pan on low heat. 

recipe 101

Once toasted, lay your nuts on a plate or paper towel, making sure to spread them out evenly so they cool faster. 



Begin by MELTING your butter.


 recipe 093

Cream the melted butter and sugar together in a large bowl.


 recipe 097

Add in both your eggs and mix well with an electric mixer.


 recipe 104

Now add in your vanilla, oil, cocoa powder, and flour, a little at a time.

Mix until smooth.


 recipe 107

Scrape down your bowl and add in your toasted and cooled pecans.


 recipe 112

Pour in your white chocolate chips.  I chose white chocolate because you can see them against the darkness of the brownie when you bite into them.

At this point, I give you full permission to use this picture as your desktop background.  It is much to delectable to forget about.



recipe 122

Now this is an important step! Grease and foil a 9 x 13” pan.  (All this means is to line your pan with foil and grease the foil.)


Now pour your batter into your lined baking pan.


Bake on 350 degrees for 30 – 35 minutes, or until a toothpick, when inserted into the middle, comes out with brownie crumbs!

Have a great and delicious day!
