Garlic Kale Chips {RC Helicopter GIVEAWAY}

As fall is closing in and the threat of the flu looms around the corner, it's time to start laying on the garlic. Heavy.  Any of you who know me well, know that I will avoid the flu like the plague.  I may very well see someone who has had the flu, scream with hands waiving and run in the opposite direction.  Okay, so that may be a bit of an exaggeration  but I dislike the flu, very much.  Lets just say if there was a Facebook flu page, I would not 'like' it...okay that was a bit corny.  I digress. Moving on.  All that to say that I am a terrible wimp when I get the flu, and when it hits our house, all five of us end up with it, and it's not pretty.  So this year, i'm laying on the garlic in any way possible (sorry to all my close friends).  Yesterday, Levi and I tried some garlic kale chips.  So here's how it goes:

Garlic Kale Chips
Peel a bunch of garlic- the number depending on how paranoid you are of getting the flu, and how much you like garlic!


Throw some olive oil in a large bowl and crush in all your garlic.



Have the cutest little boy in the world wisk the olive oil and crushed garlic together (yes, you can borrow him, so long as you don't have the flu).


Wash and thoroughly dry your kale leaves.


Tear the kale leaves off of the stem and throw them in your garlic/olive oil mixture.  Avoid putting in the stem, it's a little too chewy. Unless of course you would like to gnaw on your chips rather then crunch them.


Get friendly with your kale and get your hands in there and give it a massage with the oil.


Spread it out evenly on lined cookie sheets.


I sprinkled it with some extra garlic powder.



Bake in oven at 300 for about 15 mins.  Keep a close eye on it, so that it doesn't burn.


And, Voila! Kale chips.  Tasty snack to enjoy during a movie instead of potato chips.  Though I do also enjoy a good potato chip, I prefer not getting the flu much more!

Catching Up

It's been another long stretch since my last post, so I thought I would share a little bit of what I've been up to.    The camera has been taking a bit of a break lately, and the sewing machine has been working double time.  

There are a few projects on the go, and a few that I've managed to complete.


Did you know we do custom work?  Well, now you do! This is a custom clutch that I made up for a client who has an upcoming wedding to attend. She was looking for something unique to match with her dress and shoes.  Based on the image that she provided of her shoes, and her willingness to let me be creative, this classy clutch is what I came up with.  The clutch is made with a champagne colored satin, with a beautiful sheen to the fabric.  I added the beaded trim detail on the front and continuing around the back in two horizontal lines.  The trim was also added to the handle, to give the clutch a bracelet feel when it sits on the wrist.



It has more than enough room to store your essentials for the evening.  Fill it with some lip gloss, hair accessories and perhaps jewelry, and you have the making of a perfect bridesmaids gift! Contact us for your custom order today (sorry, Starbucks card not included with purchase...i wish!).

Here is another custom ipad bag.  It's made with a stunning suiting material that gives it a very tailored look.  The strapping is sewn in with a black clip that can be removed if desired.


It features a hidden pocket sewn into the front underneath the velcro enclosure to store any extra accessories.  This bag serves as a practical and stylish way to store and carry your ipad.

On another note... They're walking!

Happy weekend!
