And my all time favorite for leftovers, pie for breakfast, lunch or dinner!! Apple pie by Country Living.

Martha Stewart Notebook (2)I’m so thankful for all of you for visiting, commenting and making me feel good about my projects. I wanted to share a little goodie that I just received. It’s the Martha Stewart Home Office Discbound Notebook with a set of dividers and task pads. These organizer notebooks just came out this month and I’m so happy to be able to share one. It’s just in time to get organized for the upcoming season and new year.

The notebook is yummy gorgeous with several pages to calendar, write notes, plan or to even use as a recipe file. The dividers are erasable and can be used over and over. And handy task pads can be used to jot quick notes, lists or reminders. Whatever you need to organize, this beautiful notebook will keep you on track.
