Pirogi Casserole 12 lasagna noodles, boiled 2 cups mashed potatoes 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese ½ cup butter You can also add some chopped onions, salt, and pepper to the mashed potatoes, but I don’t. Place…

Butterfly Quilts

I try to make quilts for my new nieces and nephews when they are born. For my niece, Eden, I made this beautiful butterfly quilt, and I used some extra blocks to make a doll-sized version for her older sister, Anna, too. I used only fabrics I had on hand- I didn’t have to buy anything, so it was some major stash-busting! I even used up extra binding that I over-cut from the last quilt…

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.…
