"Turkey Treat" verses "Altered Turkey Treat"

Hi everyone, how are you all doing today. My, it is getting a little chilly outside, 33 degrees at this point (it's almost 11pm). I suspect by morning it will be in the very low 30's or even 20's?. Burrr....I put my plants in the garage so they don't freeze and can live a little longer, wellllll, at least for another week or so.

I might be having another garage sale on Thursday or Friday (depending on the weather) then pack everything away till next year. So here's hope for nice weather for the rest of the week. Also, added to the agenda for this week is gardening. There's still lots of things to do before the first snowflakes fall. Tulips to plant, leaves to rake, cut down the peonies, lavender, iris's and Star Jasmine vine also the roses need to be cut down, fed and covered. It'll all get done....just in time for winter.
Years ago I picked up a post card, on it were some turkeys and an eagle....the caption said "It's hard to fly like an eagle when you work with a bunch of turkey's" Hahahaha, I guess I have never forgot that postcard and I am sure I still have it tucked away in some folder. Really don't know what that has to do with what I am going to write about. But one always needs a good laugh here and there....guess that was my laugh for the moment.

Now about "the turkeys". I received an email a few days ago from a lady in Texas. She is a demonstrator for Stampin'Up. It seems the turkey in the above picture was pinned on Pinterest. I thought that was neat when I read her email. But as the email continued, I found out the originator of the turkey treat, Kirsteen wanted me to know she designed the turkey and wanted credit for it some place in my blog. Because I did not realize she designed the turkey, it was kind of hard to give credit where credit was due. In her words, "I happened to log on to Pinterest this morning and saw a pin of a Turkey Treat made with the bow die, the link takes me to your website and pictures of your Turkey Treat which is obviously a slightly altered CASE from the Turkey Treat I made in August."

I responded, "I did not realize the idea came from you." I explained how I came about the idea through a card making class I go to once a month. And, I probably would not be making anymore turkeys and this would be my one and only, who will sit happily on my dinning room table. One turkey in the house is enough.
So the above picture is the original Turkey Treat made by and copyrighted by Kirsteen Gill, a Stampin'Up demonstrator in Texas. This is her original post of the turkey and how you can buy the tutorial to make the turkey   Also, if you are a Stampin' Up fan and would like to follow Kirsteen on Facebook and Pinterest: here are the addresses: and Her website is:   So let me just say again....sorry Kirsteen...I do hope this has been resolved.

So there you have it.....I guess we all case each other's creations, maybe to the tee and maybe altered a little. Kind of like recipes, we might get a good recipe and change it in some way. Very seldom do I do something exactly...tonight I did though. Made a big pot of Harvest Soup and some meatballs....I honestly followed the that is a miracle. I shall change the meatball recipe a little....tooooo salty. You just may see that recipe on my blog as it was a really healthy kind of meatball using Mann's Broccoli Cole Slaw and hamburger.

You all have a great day and keep looking up for your redemption draws nigh.
Cheers ~ Louise
