I hope you are all enjoying your spring -- and don't have too much snow on the ground!
1) A "true" fondue meal consists of three courses -- cheese, meat, dessert.
2) I am much too lazy to clean the pot after each course, so I improvised and we really only used the pot for the meat course. It worked well for us. The cheese course I made in a bread bowl (DELICIOUS!) The second course was meat, which I used the pot for. And the third course, dessert, I used my crock pot.
3) The meat course is so yummy. I used this recipe, Fondue Bourguignonne (nope, can't pronounce it). The main point of the meat course is the dipping sauces. This was the hardest part for me -- finding good sauces. Some worked, some didn't. But it's fun to try new sauces!
4) The dessert fondue seized up in my crock pot. Next time, I'll probably leave it on low using a double boiler on the stove top. It was still delicious, it just wasn't that dippable (which is kind of the point of a fondue).
So...if you have a fondue pot that you have never used. Or if you have thought about fonduing...GO! Fondue it up! You won't regret it.

So you may be wondering -- how do you oven roast a chicken?? Or maybe, how do you make chicken broth?? I am no expert. And you could probably google and find something better then my method. But I'll give it to you in a nutshell.

1) I have an Artfire store. Soon I hope to have an Etsy store too. We will see how that progresses. My store is called Pieces of Me. I really wished that I would have named it the same as my blog for a better cohesiveness. I didn't really want to change my blog name and redirect traffic and you can't change your Artfire store name. So I decided to integrate the two. You can check out my store here, if you so desire. My blog will in NO WAY become a promotion of my store. I will rarely even mention it from here on out. But that's why I changed up my header a little bit. It's more of an FYI then a sales pitch. Promise.
2) I often have the desire to share more then just stamping...but felt my blog somewhat limited that, seeing as that I had been promoting it has a papercrafting blog. So from now on, you'll see a little bit more of my other hobbies -- mainly sewing and baking. It will still be mainly a papercrafting blog, but I'm just warning you that a little more variety will be coming your way. I have a book review blog that is separate from this blog -- it will remain separate. However, there's a link over in the sidebar if you're interested in that.
3) Last of all...I have been lacking motivation to do anything in my craft room. So my choice is to either pack it up and sell it all or get my rear in gear. So, maybe a new blog format will do just that. We will see!
And now...for those of you who were nice enough to stick through to the end...I have a giveaway!! Comment on this post, follow my blog, send me an email, a facebook post, a tweet, or whatever telling me what you think about the new blog. I have an Itty Bitty rubber stamp from Unity Stamp Co. that could be yours!
