10 on 10 Challenge

As promised, here are my 10 photos for Carly Robertson's 10 on 10 Challenge. So, here goes...

Biscoff Spread. What can I say about this? I discovered the Biscoff cookies on a Delta flight a few years ago. They were so good, in fact, that I actually saved one of my packets...for OVER ONE YEAR. Yes, you read correctly. I held on to it because I was either going to find them in a store, or I was going to find a recipe for to make them myself. I was in WalMart one day, trying to decide on what kind of cookies I would buy that day...and there they were. And every package had coupons on them!! I bought 2 packages, which is a good thing because I ate an entire one by that night. What?! They were gooooood.  And I don't know a single person who can say they haven't done the same thing at some point or other. 
Anyway, I was on a trip to Las Vegas, and I was in THEIR WalMart with my niece and saw this. The spread has the consistency of peanut butter, but it is made from the actual cookies. I ate that jar by the spoonful. It is probably a good thing the spread is nowhere to be found in my area. Forget love handles, I would have a truck tire around my waist!
I believe it is a type of speculoos cookie, one which I am not too familiar with really. I haven't found a recipe that comes close to tasting like these, and I would have to work out 5 hours a  day 7 days a week to work off what I would gain trying. So, I have decided to just buy them every once in a while or for a special occasion. (PS- for the record, this jar is empty thanks to my husband!!!!!!!)
Sebastian is the king of the world!!
He's just too cool...
Our Marley...silly dog. She's the queen of her (dog) house!

This boy needs a haircut!
After a few months of not making anything papercrafting related, my sons asked me for bookmarks. Sebastian's was video game themed, and Alex's had a map.

They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit. As much as I love photography, I have to remind myself to take photos of every day little things. It's not just photography, it is a few other things that I am not sure I am ready to share yet. It all revolves around not procrastinating which I am VERY GUILTY of. One of my best friends, Errin, calls it "deadline driven". It makes me laugh every time I think about it, but in the ways that procrastinating has affected different aspects of my life is NOT funny. You can miss out on a lot of things if you aren't careful. So, that is one of my resolutions, to continue to push myself to be the best I can be, and to work harder in every way. It January 12, I have 9 days to go to see if this 21 day thing really works. So far, it seems like it does.

I am off to create a Get Well card and I have a new design for etched glass I need to work on.

Have a wonderful day!



  1. Hey Antoinette, thanks for stopping by my blog! Great pics--that second is really cool of the trees against the sky. BTW, I've never heard of biscoff spread, but all of a sudden I have a huge craving for nutella :)

  2. These are great Antoinette! So happy you played along! Hugs, Carly
