Ever since I was a child,
I was interested in hand-crafts.
I learned to knit and quilt 
almost before I learned to read.
Even then, 
it seemed important to me
for artisans to be able to 
ply their trade.

 My sweet daughter
had taught me some of the basics
of making jewelry - 
but then I decided 
I wanted to learn more....

That led me 
to use
my camera and computer
as an artistic outlet.
I now make
custom made necklaces 
and offer them in my Etsy Store.
They are unique and affordable.
Stop by and see me sometime.

For quite some time,
I had been looking at
the Magic Bullet.
 Since I like to have 
smoothies for breakfast,
I thought it would
be a great tool 
to have in my kitchen.

I just couldn't justify
the space and money
when my blender 
would do the same jobs.

About two weeks ago,
my husband and I were 
shopping at Costco
and the Magic Bullet
was on sale for $39.00.
I put it in the cart
and have never looked back.

It is a great kitchen tool
and do I ever enjoy it
for making my smooties -
much easier clean up
since you can drink 
right out of the same canister
that you mix your drink in.

 I still haven't figured out
where to put all of these pieces,
but the base and
two of the canisters
are on my counter
because I use them daily.
 This morning,
I started with a 
one serving
Greek Coconut Yogurt.

 Next I added
a package of 
Classic French Vanilla
Instant Breakfast.
 About 3/4 cup of frozen pineapple.

 One cup of skim milk.

It only took about 30 seconds
for it to be mixed
into one of the best smoothies
I've ever had -
In fact it was so good
that I would consider
it a milkshake!!
And to top it all off,
it is gluten free.
