Artwork Improved and a Smoothie Recipe

Remember the little $1 Artwork I was so happy to blog about the other day? Well that wee birdie needed something...just something and I couldn't put my finger on it...
Well, guess what? It was my lovely blog readers who knew just what he needed! 
Thank you Sue and Rebecca!
 So after looking at my little Chirpy guy, Sue agreed with me (and I with her) that a white frame would make Mr. Chirpy Bird even more chirpy. Rebecca had the very clever idea of adding a branch made out of felt and ribbon to give Mr. Chirpy a place to rest. I ended up just cutting a branch out of white paper (to kind of compliment the white frame), but would never have thought to add that missing element without her suggestion. 

So, my friends, this is a post about Before and Afters....

BEFORE......................and...................AFTER (much better, I think)

But, this is also a post about how much I appreciate my readers and my comments. I feel like I know many of you, even though we've never met!

Also, do you want to know my very own Strawberry-Banana Flax Seed Yogurt Smoothie Recipe? 
I like to change the subject when I get too sentimental (tee hee hee). 
Not only does it taste super yummy, but it's loaded with Omega-3 Fatty Acids (thank you Mr. Flax Seed)!

Here it is:

I cup Frozen Strawberries
2 Large Bananas
1 Cup Crushed Ice
1 1/2 Cups Yogurt (I used Vanilla, Lowfat)
3 Tablespoons Honey
1/4 Cup Flax Seeds
A Dash of Love (secret ingredient)

Put in Blender. Blend on "Chop" to chop ice then "Mix" to make it Smooth!


I hope you have a lovely weekend, filled with Chirpy Birds! 

p.s. Thank you again Joanne for your guest post yesterday. It was awesome!

Pin It!
