Hi everyone! It's me Lolly of LollyChops.com and I am thrilled to be back AGAIN as a guest of LFM! I guess I did ok with the little hot chocolate packs a while back so the boss let me have the reigns once more! WOO HOO… (can you say P.A.R.T.Y. Fuji's place?!?!)!
Keeping in the Fuji theme, I made some totally cute La Fuji Mama recipe cards for you guys today. They are a LollyChops speciality and come in 4 different colors! You can download these little puppies and cut them out for your very own Fuji Flair!
I have a little story to tell (well there is nothing little about it really… I can talk the ears off a caterpillar (seriously folks)). I want to let you know how LFM and I first met! It was just a few months ago (seems like we have known each other since birth at this point)! I cannot remember who left a comment on who's blog first… but I do remember her comment on mine (I was new to blogging and each and every single comment was like finding a diamond in murky waters – oh heck – who am I kidding – they still are as exciting to me and I think they always will be!)!!
It was on this post HERE and LFM said: "I can't believe you are getting that reaction to that necklace! I think it's absolutely GORGEOUS and would wear one just like it in a heart beat. I LOVE the color combo."
You see, I had made a bunch of jewelry to sell on Etsy (figuring like so many others that I was going to be able to quit my day job and craft for the rest of my life!)…ha.ha. Sadly it was not meant to be! I only sold one piece and decided to try a different approach to crafting (basically crafting for me and me alone – with no goals to sell anything! It totally worked and took the burden off of the "I must sell something" pressure). Whew…
Since Etsy was out, I had to get rid of all that jewelry somehow… so I posted a picture of it on my blog (thinking it was dog ugly) and low and behold – folks out there liked it – so what did I do? I started giving it away! I mean heck… why not right?
After that first comment I started stalking LFM's blog and leaving her loads of comments hoping she would come back – and strangely enough she did!!! Her and I hit it off right from the get go. We have since found that we have loads in common and actually talk on the phone once a week (isn't the Internet fantastic for bringing folks together like that!?!?!). I know I had better settle in for the long haul when we talk though, cause it's usually a marathon session (like two long lost friends who have not spoken in eons)!!! I really cherish the friendship we have formed and have my little blog to thank for it!!!
So that's my story and I am sticking to it (see… it wasn't too long was it???).
All of those little Fuji recipe cards sprinkled about are available for your download, print and cutting out pleasure! …and all are 4×6 inches and are in PDF format.
