There are many facets to Creative Inspiration. First of all, I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator. Please join me in the world of paper crafting and rubber stamping. Secondly, I offer classes in creative home-keeping including sewing, cooking and home decor. I also offer beautiful rental items for events, such as table-cloths, mercury glass votives, vases and centerpieces, silver candelabras, crystal chandelier and Opulent Treasures serving pieces. I have a wonderful Creative Inspiration Studio for classes or I can do workshops in your home. I welcome you as a customer.

Baby Red Potato Salad

I tried a new recipe this evening that my daughter Suzan had told me about.  She has been using a lot of recipes from Gina Homolka from http://www.skinnytaste.com  This Baby Red Potato Salad is very tasty.  I used some fresh basil and parsley (from my herb pots) instead of the green peppers and scallions and used sweet onion instead of red onion.  The red wine vinegar makes it taste fresh and light.
