Asian Sesame Ginger Noodles

Hello and happy monday!Iknow it's been awhile since I have posted but I have been obsessively making my cuffs for my etsy shop. I have been happily creating all kinds of designs and have so many more I can't wait to share... So in all this madness of cuff making my husband and I did a little project together for our dog. We have a big dog and we have been looking for a cute stand for her bowls and just couldn't find anything we liked so we made our own. It's was nice crafting with my hubby. He built the stand and I painted it and laid the rock design. I think it turned out super cute and Molly approves!So I have been obsessed with this dish... Asian noodles with shrimp, tofu ,sugar snap peas peanuts , sesame seeds and feta. I was in the mood for something asian and spicy so I looked in my fridge and cabinets and this is what I came up with. I used low carb pasta which I am slightly obsessed with low carb cooking. I sauteed some shrimp and tofu and tossed it all together with some sesame ginger dressing and topped it with sugar snap peas, crushed peanuts and sesame seeds. I can't get enough of this meal!it was super fabulous and so ridiculously simple! Add a glass of your favorite vino and enjoy ~

So for those of you who haven't seen my cuffs here is a little peek of my stamped designs, I am in L*O*V*E with them! I just ordered some metal stamps so I am excited to add some metal to them.

What have yobeen up to this summer??? any projects or interesting new recipes ??? I am on a mission to sell lots of cuffs so I can finally get that new camera I have been dreaming of.

I'm off to list some new cuffs on my etsy.

Beach House Bliss Studio latest happenings...

Happy Friday!!! So I have been happily creating my newest endeavor ... Introducing can I get a drum roll please.... Boho inspired cuffs! I am so happy with them and am excited to share them with you. Life is a journey and every day really is a winding road! Just love that Sheryl Crow song, oh and by the way I am going to see her in concert next week. I am so pumped she really is a free spirit, I love that about her ! I think I will wear one of these happy little daisy cuffs to the concert, gotta start getting these cuffs out to the world!!! I say you have to believe in yourself and try and if you fail and fall you pick yourself up and then you SUCCEED ! I have been a soul searching mission these last few months and have grown and learned things about myself I didn't know and also realized I am stronger than I realized. I have been finding myself doing things I would have never done before and that makes me feel great about who I am. Everyone has a voice and something to offer so speak up and be heard. Be true to yourself an be as you are no one can take that from you! I think it is important to just take time and sit quietly and listen to your inner voice. Sometimes we all get caught up in what everyone else is saying that we forget to listen to what Oprah calls thos " little whispers". She is so right you have to really listen and when you do you will discover things about yourself you didn't know.These whispers will always lead you on the right path and the direct you where you are meant to go. So enough of my deep thoughts and allowing me to share a feeling.

So after a busy week of creating cuffs and photographing and listing them  shop I made this little beach sign. I have been collecting the caps off of my husbands beer bottles and finally got around to making something with them. A simple little project you can do... I used a piece of wainscoting I had laying around, painted some letters turquoise and used e6000 to glue on all the caps in the shape of an arrow simple and cute. Every time I look at this sign it puts a smile on my  face and takes me away to my favorite little beach place! What is on your agenda for this weekend? We are taking the train to  Chicago this weekend I am so excited. My wonderful in laws gave us 2 folding bikes so we get to take them on the train. This should be an adventure! Can't wait to share pics from trip to chicago. Have a wonderful weekend and oh if you have a minute take a peek at my Beach House Bliss etsy shop I just listed some new cuffs.  S~ xoxo
