jane's doodles blog hop + giveaway + 20% off sale!

Welcome to another Jane's Doodles blog hop! 
I'm excited to share 3 new stamp sets with you all.

We also have Jennifer McGuire joining us for this hop! Yay! I know Jennifer's readers like to shop at Simon Says Stamp and I'm happy to say they carry all my sets too.

You can also enjoy 20% off all clear stamps this weekend in my shop!

Driving Home For Christmas was inspired by one of my favourite Christmas songs by Chris Rea called....driving home for christmas....of coarse! :)

This set is not a typical Jane's Doodles stamp set. I don't usually do solid stamps (I LOVE to colour). The inspiration for this set came from my children's religion teacher who is a wonderful nun. Almost all of my cards are sold by sister Renata to raise money to help others. I know she will really love this set and the cards I will make for the school's Christmas fair.

Growing up our Christmas tree was decorated with these gorgeous vintage ornaments....which inspired this set of coarse. :)

And here are my cards. :)

I just love these ornaments....they're so fun to colour! :)

Of coarse there's a persone will win all three sets so make sure you leave comments! I will announce the winner on Monday.

The order of the hop is as follows.

window shopping - Zara Home

I thought I'd share some home items that caught my eye while online window shopping at Zara Home.

I want to add some throw pillow to my sofa's but I need a little pop of colour...and I'm leaning towards blue..these are gorgeous.

Love this mirror

Don't get me started with my obsession with stationary goodies....from notebooks, pencils, pens....

So pretty.

These is so autumn-ish. Gorgeous.

I need a shower curtain and I'm loving this simple white polka dot one.

Fall is all about comfort food. :)

I am thinking about Christmas baking BECAUSE it'll be here before you know it....time just flies not fair! But like I said I'm planning and I'm thinking these chocolate pecan pie bars are going to make the list!

LOVE this mirror!!

I grew up thinking if you invested in yourself your were being selfish and even though I know now that that isn't true I have great difficulty in doing this....I feel guilt. I also don't think this is just for 'women'...anyone who invests in themselves will go further but I think women suffer in with this much more.

Love the scarf.....and tote.

double chocolate chip cookie icecream sandwiches

I found this recipe here on pinterest and it's gooooood people!
I made some this summer and my kids, nieces and nephews gave it the thumbs up. 
I made pretty big cookies and let me tell this sucker here is a meal in itself. I literally had one for dinner! I do plan on making just the cookies soon, I think it'll be a family favourite.


  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon espresso powder
  • ⅔ cup Dutch process cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 2 cups dark chocolate chunks
  • 2 14-ounce packages ice cream


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking sheet mat.
  3. In bowl of electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, creaming well in between each egg addition. Add vanilla and blend.
  4. In separate bowl, sift flour, espresso powder, cocoa, baking soda and kosher salt. Mix in half of flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix. Add remaining half and mix. Mix in chocolate chunks.
  5. Drop cookies by rounded tablespoon onto baking sheets. Bake 12 minutes. Remove from oven and move to cooling rack to cool completely.
  6. Once cookies have cooled completely, remove ice cream from freezer and let sit at room temperature for 3-5 minutes to soften slightly. Set ice cream container on its side. With sharp, serrated knife, cut through ice cream container into ½ to ¾ inch rounds.
  7. Working quickly, remove wrapper and place slice of ice cream on bottom side of cookie, then top with another cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies and serve immediately or wrap individually in plastic wrap, place in a freezer bag and freeze for later.

The icecream I used was in a tub so I had to scoop a tablespoon or so onto the was messy but yummy!

I'm thinking of adding some blue throw pillows to our couch.

I've been craving guacamole lately!

This for some reason brings me comfort.
