Yummy Dessert

I'm not really sure why I decided this should go on the craft blog. Maybe because they are cute. And easy. And I'm all about cute and easy.

Line muffin pans with foil - either foil cups or just strips crumpled up. Melt chocolate chips, and use a spoon to squish it around and line the foil cups. Refrigerate until chocolate hardens. Follow the directions on package of vanilla instant pudding - spoon in. Add sliced strawberries. And ENJOY!

Easiest. Craft. Ever.

1. Cut off the end of a pants leg.
2. Turn it wrong-side out.
3. Stitch across cut off edge.
4. Turn right-side out.
5. If you want, add a button.

I used mine to stash sunscreen and bug spray in the van. What will you use yours for?

Paper Bag Scrapbooks

I saw this idea in a craft store right after we got married, and had to try it. You buy white paper lunch bags, cover them with scrapbook paper, and decorate. I made sure each flap could be folded back to reveal more embellishments, and used the open end for a picture insert. They were fun! I did one for all of the younger nieces and nephews... Kristina, I promise I will do something for your boys! Soon! (I didn't have any recent pictures of them at the time... now I have internet, so I do... but I haven't been scrapbooking a lot recently!) Unfortunately, I don't seem to have any pictures of Rylea's. I loved her's, because I got to use my favorite colors. I also can't find pictures of Joshua's. Sigh. Oh well, this will give you the idea :)



Jake's: (This was fun because I got to cut out trains - the engine was the best, but again... where are all my pictures?!)

It's Finished!

This is Cadence's baby quilt. It's finished - and she's not even two yet!

She loves to snuggle with it, since it is made with chenille. I used a pattern from "Simply Chenille Baby Quilts" by Bonnie Olaveson. I loved the way she put the triangles together - two squares sewn together down the middle, then cut apart. It made it so much easier to work with the chenille.

Yes, the picture above is sideways, and yes, I'm too lazy to switch it - turn your head sideways :)
