I SOMETIMES WILL ALSO ADD POPPYSEEDS TO THE BATTER IF I WANT LEMON POPPYSEED. TASTE THE BATTER, IF YOU WANT
MORE OF A LEMON FLAVOR, ADD A COUPLE DROPS OF LEMON EXTRACT TO THE BATTER.
A DELICIOUIS, HEAVY, POUND CAKE TYPE OF LOAF. GOOD PLAIN OR WITH A SCOOP OF ICE CREAM. IT ALSO FREEZES well

Right Where We Belong!

 This is to let everyone know, that Createful Heart Design is STAYING right here in Blog land!  I decided that it wouldn't make much sense to move everything to FB.   Nope it just wouldn't do.  It wouldn't be the same.  And honestly, I would miss you all.     And it did cross my mind that there are a lot of you that don't use FB....  Why break up a good thing.   So, keep your channel set right here, for the monthly challenges.     As always, we will be starting the challenges bright and early at 7:00 in the morning, (Indiana Time), I realize we're not all on the same time... and that's okay. 

But, just to make sure we're all set, Challenges start on the 15th of the month, and end on the 14th of the following month.  

**Also**  I am still looking for some designers to join our team, if you think you might be interested in this opportunity, please let me know.   I have three slots open.   Just send an email to me (Mary), at this address.    This is strictly for applications only.   Spam will be deleted.**   

Hope your day is filled with all kinds of Crafty Goodness!

Blessings, Mary - Admin/Owner
