Spring Break


It's finally warm and the sun is shining, and for that reason, this girl needs a little break to go outside. It's been a long winter and Ryker, Molli, and I have been stuck in the house for way too long.



Ryker now crawls under his exersaucer and Molli has decided to sit on the coffee table and look outside. Call it cabin fever, call it grandma lost control, call it whatever you want, but I need to step away from the computer for awhile and have some fun!




That's why I'm going to take a blogging break and enjoy the times I spend with my family and friends. I'll be back and I hope you will, too.

Ham, Asparagus, & Swiss Biscuit Cups


Want to see something that will make your mouth water and you'll wish that you had it for breakfast this morning? You can thank simply Stacie for sharing this with all of us. My mom actually used to make a quiche using ham & asparagus and this reminds me so much of that. Unfortunately, I didn't inherit mom's gift of cooking so I can't wait to try Stacie's version.



Have a happy day!

Baked Mint Chocolate Chip Doughnuts


Here's one more "shamrocky" thing you can do before the big day tomorrow. You're probably going to want a little something before you go out celebrating with the Irish. What better way to start a green day than with these doughnuts from Sugar, Spice, and Family Life.

(She had me at doughnut and then the mint and chocolate completely sold me!)



I'll see back here later today for this week's It's a Party.

Shamrock Bath Bombs


If you're out celebrating with the Irish on St. Patrick's Day, you're probably going to want to come home and relax after that day of green beer and corned beef & cabbage. These bath bombs from 
As the Bunny Hops are just the thing you would need.

Tranquility Necklace


I'm so in love with this Tranquility Necklace from Jewelry Making Journal. I leave a lot to be desired when it comes to jewelry making, but with Rena's great tutorial for this necklace, I think even I can do it. I'm sure going to try.



Have a great Tuesday!

Dr. Seuss Sign Generator


The website that Grandma Ideas shared with all of us at last week's It's a Party to generate your own personal signs using cartoon characters is absolutely awesome! I can't wait to start making pictures for all the grandkids. If you haven't already, be sure to check this out. So fun!

Wooden Leprechaun Hat


I don't usually do a whole lot of decorating for St. Patty's Day, but this leprechaun hat that Maria from the Krafty Owl made is so darn cute and simple, I may just make one for the mantel.



Have a fabulous Leap Day!

It's a Party! #250


Welcome to the party!

I still haven't been doing a whole lot of "crafting" lately, but I did wear my brain out today at embroidery software class learning how to design a quilt block in the hoop. Don't ask me if I understood anything that I learned though. Just did what I was told.

So, for now, Ryker and I are just going to sit back, eat, cross our legs and admire what all you have accomplished and created this past week.




Who's ready? Let's get this party started!

Yarn Storage


Yes, I'll admit it. I've got an over abundance of yarn scattered all over the house in all types of places. I did start with one certain bin for all of it, but when that overflows, you start putting it in all kinds of baskets, drawers, shelves,...okay, you get the idea. I've got yarn stuffed all over our house!

I love this simple, but brilliant, idea that Leen from vrolijk shared with us last week for how she can store yarn now. The wood piece she put on the top to also use it as a table is pure genius!



See you back here later today for this week's It's a Party.

Small Chalkboards


These small chalkboards that a Vintage Green created using chalk paint and stencils are so darn cute! My favorite is the bamboo cutting board. She has great instructions for you to make your own using items found around your house.

Mini Seuss Book Jewelry

3D Heart Shadowbox

It's a Party! #247


Welcome to the party!

I haven't been doing a whole lot of crafting lately, but I did manage to whip something up for my husband's boss, a huge Alabama fan, for the championship game they played in.



You're not seeing things, I embroidered on toilet paper. It was so much fun, I think I'll make even more with all kinds of sayings. I mean, really, who wouldn't want their own personalized toilet paper? 
(Sorry for the bad pic. I took it with my phone before my husband left for work.)

Okay, okay, let's get out of the toilet and on to the party!

Funnel Cake Fritters


One of my most favorite guilty pleasures are funnel cakes. When I used to work at the Examiner newspaper, we had to work all the festivals that were in the area. I didn't mind at all because I knew that while I was there "working", I could find a funnel cake booth at every corner. It was awesome! The idea now that I can make these Funnel Cake Fritters at home absolutely makes me the happiest girl in the whole USA. 

By the way, you get 10 extra diamonds in your creative princess crown if you remember that song and even more if you know who sang it.

Thank you so much Woods of Bell Trees for sharing this recipe with all of us!



Happy funnel cake day to all of us!

Rustic Industrial Letters


Big industrial letters seem to be all the rage right now and you see them everywhere, but my very favorite are these that My Love 2 Create made out of pallet wood and old blinds.

DIY Valentine Wreath


I'll admit it, I'm still finding a few remnants of Christmas around the house that I missed when packing everything away. As I was taking the last of it down to the basement, it hit me that Valentine's Day is only a few short weeks away.

I love this Valentine Wreath from Crafts Unleashed and my favorite part is the chicken wire heart!
It's so easy and quick to make that I'll be ready for Valentine's Day in no time.

Easy Way to Make a Shutter into a Mirror


As many of you know, I love crafting with old shutters. It's so rewarding taking what one person thinks is a piece of trash and transforming it into something you love. After all the trash to treasure shutters I've done (my very favorite was this one), I never once thought of making a mirror. 

What a great idea Home on the Corner had for the shutter by turning it into a mirror. It would look absolutely beautiful in any room of the house.

Apple Pie Cookies


Want to talk about a cookie the will absolutely make your mouth water? 
Okay, then let's talk about the cookies that Shibley Smiles made.



Besides the fact that they sound delicious, they are so adorable!
I went to the store today and bought pie crust, apple pie filling, & caramel topping. 
Guess who's going to be eating these tomorrow?!!

Welcome to the party!

I'm so inspired by all of your creativity each week. Thank you for stopping by! 

I really haven't been doing much crafting lately (although, I have lots of ideas running around in my head). Right now, my top priority is taking care of little Ryker. I love every minute that he's here during the day and wouldn't change anything for the world.


Our whole family was here Christmas Eve and that poor little guy just had to crash at the end of the night. He really did try his hardest not to give up!

Okay, are you ready? Let's get this party started!

One Pallet Window Table


If I were as talented as Scrapality and could transform a wood pallet into a window table, I would absolutely have one sitting in front of every window in my house. Awesome! 
This is definitely on my to do list.

Chicken Shepherd's Pie


I'm going to admit something that I've never said out loud before. I've never had Shepherd's Pie in my life. That's right, never even tasted it. I've thought about making it, but my husband told me never to make it for him or the kids when they were little. (He obviously had too much of it.)

I'm pretty sure that simply Stacie came up with the perfect recipe using chicken that would make my husband a happy guy and for me to finally get to have my Shepherd's Pie.
I  can't wait to try it!



Have a fabulous Tuesday!
