Some Changes Happening at Achoo You

Hello Friends
It has been a little while since I posted here, as most of you interact with me over at Instagram and Facebook. I thought I would put a small but significant update here also.
I am a crafter by nature. I enjoy a number of different mediums and have really honed in lately card making. I may be single handedly be bringing back the art of a notecard :)

Some pictures of items that are available. Please get in touch if you have a colour or theme you may be looking for..... For an additional dollar I can also send for you, something that may appeal to those with time constraints.

What I have been working on recently is cards and such. Mostly building stock up again for Etsy but I end up just playing around with new designs.
Easily distracted by shiny things is I.

Designing new printables for special occasions.

Oh a quick tip I wanted to share with my crafty homies.
When you have loads of trims, how do you store them........

I use up scraps and pin them and then file them in their own box marked trims. 

OTT never...........

GF LF Custard Cake

This one was a hold your breath and hope for the best kind of cake.
I was nervous the first time I made it. As you can't cut into it and check if the custard has set.
Being that it is custard you have to trust in the process.
I am not going to lie it's not a pretty process people.

Please do not stress when you get the above pic. It looks like everything has curdled and will be horrid.
It's not I promise. TRUST IN THE PROCESS.

What I love about this recipe is it is staples in the pantry. I have all the items on hand. Love it!!!!

So please give this one a go and see what you think. All of the above can be replaced for real butter, milk and flour if you wish. It really is a versatile cake. Mum said it reminds her of beloved Vanilla Slices she use to hoover. I just think it is yummy and the kids loved it, custard is hands down one of their favourite

Why The Gluten Free Zone Yo?

As we have more and more visitors popping in to say Hi Hello, I thought I might explain why I am posting mainly Gluten Free Lactose Free Recipes. A year ago my Mum was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. Poor Mum it was a hard cross to bare at the time because like her daughter she is food lover. Those in particular baked goods. Of the straight out of the oven lathered in butter kind of baked goods. Until you attempt a Gluten Free diet, you have no idea how much stuff actual contains Gluten or sneaky Gluten. Well I felt bad for poor Mum and decided that I would not be bowing to the 8 million books out there on Gluten Free Diet and Recipes but adapt our tried and true family recipes.
 I have multiple books and folders of handwritten recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. Recipes that I have scribbled on napkins at someones home because I adored what I had just eaten so much I had to have the recipe then and there. HA Invite me anytime I shall just quiz the hell out of you for ingredients. I still have a napkin with lipstick writing of a semi fredo recipe from a dinner party I went to in the late 90's. I shall type them all in one spot for prosperity at some point. Just not anytime soon, that seems like a lot of hard work doesn't it. So anything I post on here is a recipe that I have adapted from a full totes odds one on hand. The good stuff with all the butter milk and flours.
I play around with them a fair bit because it turns out sometimes you can't just substitute out like for like. I also only post things that are smack bang same tasting. I can not stand buying or making something that tastes nothing like what you anticipate it would. So when I am fiddling with these recipes they must taste like the original. That if you didn't know, you would think it was original. Get me? So I have switched mostly to a Gluten Free diet. I feel better for it, not as bloated and the severe dizzy spells I was experiencing have subsided. My husband and kids are tough critics, they love their baked goods and they have no problem in telling if something is not cutting the mustard.
Along the way I shall also share great ready made Gluten Free Lactose Free products that I find. First one I can think of off the top of my head is in Coles there are Gluten Free rolls, they are the business. They taste just like normal bread rolls, soft and gorgeous. So tell me have you a Gluten Free diet? Hard yacka or easy peasy lemon squeezy? Little expensive on the hip pocket some of the products out there huh, so how about we find and share some good recipes that need little or no fancy pants ingredients that require you to trek to the outskirts of Mongolia. Yeah I like that idea........

Coming Up Soon (like tomorrow)

What's Been Happening Around These Parts

Let's see now, the pump caught fire near the pool and nearly burned down the backyard. I kid you not, it was scary and I have never loved fireman more in my entire life than I did that day. The fireman calendars that I buy each year to support the *cough* cause are entirely worth it. I shall spare you the photos but it was gruesome to say the least. So I have been project managing the insurance claim. If you have ever had to deal with 6 different tradesman from all different companies, you are feeling my pain right now.

In other news, see the shiny new badge over there on the right? Yes my gorgeous village have once again humbled me into silence. Not really who are we all kidding. Needless to say I love my virtual village to bits.

Have you been catching up with Kirsten and Co? K is doing a marvelous job of giving us a recap each week of RHOM. I don't have Foxtel unfortunately but have watched every other Real Housewives reality series from But F*** nowhere. I was keen to see what Oz was going to put on show. By all accounts we delivered. In spades or rock star husbands apparently. Head over to see K and her rap up it always leaves me salivating for more goss.

This week she also has some amazing brownie gift tags to go with her BROWNIE recipe. She totally gets capitals for the B love because they are the bom diggity of brownies. Here is the link you can thank her later HA  Brownie Goodness

Another brave face threw caution to the wind and said F*** it all I am going to follow my dreams and make a living outta what I love. You can read her story here Sugar Coat It.

Sonya and her gorgeous boys are going to be on TV MUM!!!!!!!!!!! Saying poo and everything.
Catch that news over at Life Love and Hiccups

Over the last few years I have seen such wonderful women working everyday jobs like you and me, seen the glint in their eye when their love of something is spoken about, heard their whispers of if only. I can honestly say it has been one of the best experiences in Blog Land, to watch these beauties unravel their inner selves and just bloody go for it.

 Me, I have been crocheting like a woman possessed. A little something something for a penpal and some hearts to finish for those you know Valentines next year oopppsssss. It was the buttons that did it, I lost all interest after attaching two. Attention span of a praying mantis I tell you.

Sneak peak of what is coming up soon though, as soon as I you know tackle pre high school homework and wrangle the two year old going on twenty one year old into some pants for goodness sake. Why I thought toilet training with no pants was going to be a good idea I do not know. Now
sans pants is the go...ALL OF THE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This one is going to be super easy I promise. I cut chop and mix all in the food processor. It is the bees knees, pinky swear.
