Excellent deb. So glad you started the new thread for 2012. OMG-where oh where did 2011 go.
Dropped off ice box igloo cake for my friend's birthday. She was so excited, and couldn't believe I actually went to the trouble to make it for her.
Did a scrapbook page, sewed two more quilt squares. I don't think I will get it done before Rio's birthday party on Saturday or his Baptism on Sunday. We have to do them the same weekend, because his uncle (DIL's brother is going to be his godfather) and works in WV so he can't get home that often. So when it's done. it's done.

Thank You Debbie! Like Dean, I wonder where 2011 went. Looking forward to another year here with all of you wonderful ladies. :grball:

Dean Your icebox cake got me reminiscing. My Grandmother used to make an icebox cake called lemon cloud. I haven't had it since I was a kid, but I remember it being delicious. I pulled out the community church cookbook from my Grandmother's church, way back from the 70's and there it was, lemon cloud. I thought I'd share it with you all. It's as written.

Lemon Cloud

2 sticks oleo
2 c. flour
2 c. 10x sugar
2 (8 oz.) packages cream cheese
2 boxes lemon instant pudding
3 c. milk
1 pkg. dream whip


Mix oleo and flour together for crust. Press into 9x13 pan. Bake @ 350' for 20-25 minutes.

Whip 10x sugar and cream cheese and put on crust. Mix lemon pudding and milk and put on top. spread dream whip over top. keep in icebox.

YUM! I'll have to try it, polly.
Here's mine:
Make or buy an angel food cake. Slice into thin slices:

Melt 2 bags semi sweet chocolate chips with 4TBLS water add 4TBLS. powdered sugar, after chips are melted add 4 well beaten egg yolks. Let cool-then fold in 4 well beaten egg whites, and a container cool whip.

Line a deep bowl with wax paper or saran wrap-layer in on bottom and sides the cake-spoon and spread the cho. mixture over the cake-repeat layering until all cake is gone or bowl is full-Cover and refrigerate for 4-5 hours.
Remove cake from bowl-it will be igloo shaped. Spread the remaining chocolate mixture over the outside then cover with a container of cool whip. Store in fridge.

Been working on my cabinet. Pulled a bunch of old supplies out before I headed to Walmart. Got wrapped up in sorting.
Dh is in a bear of a mood and I'm supposed to guess why! Don't want to play. Happy New Year!
My mind is swimming w/ 100 projects this year to take my house back from clutter and disorganzed behavior I had last year. Going to make a long list and check it off bit by bid.
-clean out front closet
-clean out DH's closet
-get a sewing area settled
-get the ceiling here fixed
-paint this room
-paint this ceiling
-be mindful to shop for needed stuff in the house FIRST
-reorg. christmas stuff in bsmt
for starters.
Here's to a more productive year for me and anyone else this year.

MadHEn-?????

Wishing better health for all of us and our families in 2012 and may we also help each other to pinch those pennies in 2012.

Look forward to chatting with all of you tomorrow right here in the new 2012 thread. What a wonderful group you all are.

I am in as well, I didn't join any of the challenges last year as I didn't join the board till later in the year. Thought I would wait until this New Year and get busy :)

Maybe with being on here I won't feel like such an oddity. Most people just look at me like I am nuts. Just about my only topic of discussion outside of home and here is my grandbabies, people don't roll their eyes at me nearly as much that way. :)
Love you Ladies, :) and the few guys too.

God Bless

It's evolved into a bit of a coffee clash, but the basic premise it still here. Each of us would like to improve our self image. For some of us that means the physical aspects, for some it's more emotional, or career driven. But we talk clothes, hair, fashion, do it yourself beauty, emotional health, family, kids, homemaking, grandparenting, parenting, etc. frugally. We support and love each other along the way.

Good evening Ladies! I think this is the best thread as well! If I don't have too much time I always check this thread first! I'm definitely working on my SI throughout this year! I have some major changes coming up in that department.

Welcome to all! Please join in, but as it was mentioned, we can get awfully chatty!

Polly - your cake sounds yummy too! :)

Uniwolf and KimZ ... welcome....Kim, Polly explained this thread pretty well! We hope you decide join us! :)

tervs - I hope you have been resting this weekend! :)

We don't have any plans for tonight but Dh wants to watch a movie and he is waiting for me so I guess I better go and snuggle under the quilt with him.

Will try and BBL .... If not, Happy New Year Everyone! :)

Oh my, this is where I belong!

I decided to make myself over completely and not just focus on one or two things.

I did a lot at the end of last year to help make myself feel better, but something else is missing. Hopefully, I can find it while being here. :)

Count me in!

To start off the New Year, I've been attending the gym three times a week for an hour each time. I've also cut back on a lot of things and bought some new clothes, so it's already a good start for me. :D
