Sneak Peek in the Studio Friday #3

Lots of crafting this week! I am just plugging away!!!

I finished this embroidery and frame for my etsy shop.I went through a patriotic…

My Buttercup Bag, Modified

As promised, I am showing you all my modified Buttercup Bag. I got this LOVELY fabric like I used in my sister-in-law’s purse for Christmas (I just reversed the outside and lining for mine). After making one for my daughter as a trial run, I realized the original pattern was too small for me, so I made mine a bit bigger (still a bit too small for me, but I am trying to size down…

Monster Cookies

Yummmmm… I LOVE these cookies! I like to say that they are just about everything you could want in a cookie. Oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chips, m&m’s,… This is a modified Amish recipe, so you might want to cut it in half! This would make about 10 dozen cookies! It took FOREVER to make a full batch Saturday night, but hubby ate a lot of dough to help me out! 🙂 Monster Cookies 6 eggs…

Sneak Peek in the Studio Friday #2

I am taking part in my second Sneak Peek– I was pretty busy last week, so I have extra things to show you all that I have been working on. There are other things, too, but they are either listed in my shop or I don’t have pics yet. A cute kitty taggy blaket for my neice from my pile of things started. She loves tags, but will not play with it. She even threw…

Baby Powder in the Vacuum

If you remember, I mentioned that my girls were into the baby powder the other week. Well, my 2yo climbed up to the top bunk in her sisters’ room and created a lovely baby powder shower from there. Their box of Barbie dolls and My Little Ponies and such got “dusted.” I tried sticking her head in the end of the vacuum hose, but Snow White still has gray hair. Their beds were also very…

Kelsey’s Quilt

I don’t believe I have ever shown off one of my quilts on my blog, but I am also a quilter! (Actually, I learned to sew quilts before anything else.) After a really tough Spring semester my sophomore year of college, I sold back all the books I could find from the first two years, went straight to Walmart, and bought the only sewing machine I could afford. That summer, I taught myself to quilt.I…

Buttercup Bag

I am trying to use up fabric quickly. I have to move all of my sewing stuff and fabrics to another room before Baby #5 comes! Then my husband will see just how much stash I have crammed into that sewing table, there! EEK!I saw the Buttercup Bag sewing pattern (Free! YAY!) and wanted to make one for myself. However, I need it a little bigger than that, so I enlarged the pattern. But, before…

Sneak Peek in the Studio Friday #1

I have been awfully busy this week! I got a lot of craft projects completed that I had started, although I now have some more started that are not completed. Hmm… First, the finishes… Decoupage Easter eggs (I wanted to make these last year, but never got around to it) “Blessings” embroidery- I tried a different technique painting the frame. A BIG finish for me – well, almost… It took me two years to do…

Quilt Backgrounds?

Many people claim that the key to etsy success is fabulous pictures. “They” also say that you need to have fluidity between the pictures in your shop. So, I am really conscious of my shop pictures- I am not that concerned about sales, but it makes me smile to open up my shop page and think “Oh, that looks nice!” I am blessed to have a large sunroom which provides beautiful natural lighting for my…

Orange Julius

Well, so much for making up school days! President’s Day was a snow make-up day, but we got MORE snow so it was cancelled. So, I used up all my daily ambition first thing in the morning and made a nice breakfast for the kiddos. One of their FAVORITES is Orange Julius. I have also made this for brunch showers and the like and I get many requests for the recipe. So, here you go!…
