Food Review – Schmidt’s Pastry Cottage

Published March 31, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

This place had a fun look on the outside and screamed to me “come in”, so in we went.

We give this Restaurant 3 Pink Pig Snouts

Located at: 1133 West South Jordan Parkway
South Jordan, Utah  84095

(there is also one in taylorsville and salt lake city)

Website: http://www.schmidtspastry.net

Type of Food: hot & cold sandwiches, soups and of course pastries

Prices – $7.00 – $10.00 (our lunches were $6.99-$7.99 each)

Decor & Atmosphere:  The decor and atmosphere were horrid.  From outside you would expect to enter a cute and cozy cottage styled atmosphere.  Instead we were assaulted with a confused cacophony of marble walls, industrial vent tubes and bland neutral colors.

Service:  Fast, friendly and drink refills were available.

Meal 1:  Philly Cheese steak on focaccia bread.  Included Lays chips and your choice of brownie, mint brownie or eclair $6.99 drink: sprite $1.99 for large with refills

Review:  Bread was moist and flavorful, meat and cheese a bit skimpy.  Mediocre sums it up.  The best part of the plate was the brownie, which was rich and tasty.

Meal 2:  Turkey bacon tomato sandwich on sourdough bread.  Included Lays potato chips and choice of brownie, mint brownie or eclair.  Avocado was $1.00 extra for a total of $7.99.  Drink: coke $1.99 large with refills

Review:  Sandwich was very good and flavorful.  Two complaints:  a) The crust of the bread was very hard and b) even though i paid $1.00 extra for avocado, the portion was a very small slice >^(  I chose the mint brownie for my desert and, like the plain brownie, was rich and tasty.

Since the pastries were the true highlight of the meal, here are some selections from their menu that might be worth a go:

Mint Cookie

Orange Butterflakes

Eclair

Want 2 Scrap

ScrapbookUSAExpo21012
Vendor: Want 2 Scrap
I loved this shop. as you will see in my photos i went bling happy. I had so many packages i was up to my chin carrying them around.
they were selling self adhesive bling packs.
they had baskets galore of bling. these were normally $3.00 and they were selling them for $1.00.
let’s say i was a happy girl.
here are some photos from there booth.


this is some of my haul laid out on my table getting ready to be organized and put up.


so to organize my bling better i made piles of the same colors and by overlaying them one on top of the other. as shown

i placed a piece of tape over the overlap area and continued adding until i had a pack of them all taped together.



I grabbed some of my alligator clips

and one of my black grid walls

and using my alligator clips, clipped the packs onto the grid wall. this will make it so much easier to find the bling i want to use. instead of shuffling through a box of them. another craft project for my office. i love to be organized

Getting down at the scrapbook expo

Published March 30, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

me and my sister were at the scrapbook use expo 2012 all day on saturday. we received many fabulous items, won drawings and participated in extra fun games.
the dj had games going throughout the day to keep things fun and to give you a reason to get out of your chairs (well another reason then going and checking out all the fantastic deals at the vendor stations)

we watched a race against time scavenger hunt. where the 2 teams (blue and red) had to go to different vendor stations and find there colored circle and beat the other team back to the dj station before the other team collected all of theres.
then we had a tug of war. we did get into this one and got our butts handed to us on the 1st pull. congrats to all the woman that won this even after 4 pulls.
here are a few shots of the action.


then we had a dance contest. they warmed them all up with a zumba lesson. then each stage to be able to stay in you had to receive an item from one of the floor judges.
1st stage – marti gras beads
2nd stage – marti gras mask
3rd stage – u guessed it a marti gras boa.
the final stage they would change up the music every 10 seconds.
i was so proud of my sister she did the change overs so well. think about going from doing moves from thriller to a country hoe down.




Here she is (the 3rd one in pink.. oh course) with the 4 top finalist.

Building a Lego City

Published March 26, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

Ever since me and my hubby have been married we take a trip around our anniversary date and always buy the newest lego building. so now that we are in a place that we can build it a proper home. (inside my office’s walk in closet that is.) So we have been using date nights to be together and build. I will share pictures through out the process until our city is finished. Here are some pictures from our 1st night building our pet shop.

The first couple of shots are just of the pictures on the outside of the box.


then we got a little crazy and dumped them all out.





This building set was awesome, it had lots of animals and fun designs on how they built furniture and such. they even have a toilet on one of the floors.

We were both in Lego heaven. Stay tuned for a photo of the completed building and more shots of the next building .. which is the emporium.

New Die Cut Designs

Published March 26, 2012 by pinkpossibilities

I have been so swamped since the scrapbook expo that i have been going crazy today. So I thought since I was working on some of my SnugglyBugg orders that I would share with you some of my new drawings that I will clean up a bit and make into new die cuts.

these are all die cuts that some of my customers requested.
Slimer from the ghostbusters, DJ Spongebob and Gonzo. there still a little rough

Then we have the 4 penguins from madagascar

Last but not least Hello Kitty rocking it out.
