Where Will I Find You

I have been very hesitant to use keys in my jewelry. I know, they are the new thing and all but I just didn't want to use cheap, cookie cutter keys that had no personality. I saw this REAL, antique, copper key and had to use it! It is perfect for what I wanted to do. I did not want to take away from the style or authenticity of this key so The only thing I added were these green recycled beads. This necklace is organic, earthy and had a great indie feel.

This handmade necklace can be found in my Etsy shop.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

I made this the other day and just had to share it. It turned out so good, my family loved it! I am on a low fat diet and can easily adjust as needed by using low fat or fat free cream cheese and low fat cream soup. I also ALWAYS use cream of mushroom in place of cream of chicken because cream of chicken just grosses me out...I did not cut up the chicken but just threw it in and shredded it after it was cooked, a lot easier I think. If you try it, let me know what you thought:) Just follow this link for the recipe:

New Zibbet Shop

I just opened a new shop on Zibbet. I really like it a lot. I am able to link my Etsy shop, Flickr and Facebook to the shop. They do not take anything to list or from my sales. I can have unlimited listings and have 4 pictures per listing. It is a really great place to sell. If you are thinking about a new marketplace to sell, check them out. You can visit my shop at
