Creative Juice #88 {Features & Link-up}

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to another edition of Creative Juice.


It’s been quiet around this here blog, given the end of summer, the back to school grind, and the holiday {did I mention the gas leak here at the estate?} but I promise many a project and recipe is coming your way in the next two months.

I’m talking the estate is CLUTTER-free people.  It’s an act of God.  It must be the clear-mind of a gluten-free diet, huh?

I have so much to sell at my upcoming garage sale, that I may be able to pay off my car and buy a DSLR.  Ok, that’s hyperbolic, but the amount of stuff is epic.  It’s been a no-holds barred diet of stuff.

I can’t wait to share all my projects and secrets with you.

Plus, you know that October 1st marks the start of the Halloween linky extravaganza, with a few surprise fabulous co-hosts…{10/1 is also my 33rd birthday.}

Now, onto your projects.

{with excellent tips from Lindsay you need to read should you attempt this}
1.) Only link things you are selling.
2.) Don’t write a witty comment.
3.) Link and run.
4.) Don’t link back to my site.
5.) Be offended by my sarcasm.

That is all.

Now time to party.


For those of you who have been around this party since its early days, you will get the reference of the picture.  {Those long-standing party-goers are entitled to inside jokes}.


Now, time to show-off,

    Thank you so much for featuring my caramel apples! I am so thrilled! You could also try making it with earth balance sticks if youre looking for casein free, from what I read, people successfully use them. I have made caramel using coconut milk as well. It comes out a bit different, but mess around, give it a try, then let me know :)
