I think you will really enjoy visiting me there! I have to many blogs and decided to combine into one. I will leave this Blog up as long as I can but come on over and see me! Grab a cup of tea and a button! As Always,
I was cleaning out the laundry room and found a table cloth I made and completely forgot about! How fun is that! I think I will clean out the hall closet next! It was a really easy one and didn't take that long to make. I love the ones that look like a giant block. These are nice and easy and we all can use nice and easy once in a while!
I loved this movie. It really is one everyone should go to see. And its not a "Chick Flick". It just a fun heart warming movie you really will enjoy. I wanted to sit Thu it twice. I loved her relationship with her husband too. I think I am going to go get her autobiography. After watching the movie the book should be even better!
As you are surfing thru "Blogland" I know you must have come up on a site telling you about this book that came out the beginning of the month. Well....I ran out and bought it! And I love it. Not only is it done beautifully but it is full of alot of helpful information. Tara Frey is the author and has a blog of her own...... http://bellapink.typepad.com/ Her blog is worth surfing to! I really liked seeing some of the other blogger sites and seeing some of my favorites in the book. But if you are new to blogging this book is really helpful. And its just fun to read! Always remember,
I hate Pot Lucks they put so much pressure on you! You have to take something everyone will love because you don't want to be the one leaving with a full plate of what ever you made! SO this becomes a major event for me...Last potluck my Niece brought he same dish I did....and I thought mine was so different no one would be bringing it. Boy was I wrong! And hers was in a beautiful dish....oh the pressure.... Don't you just hate those women who just run home after work with hardly any prep time and make something so wonderful she is having to email all of us the recipe later because it was to die for! This time I am going for the "Ramen Noodle Salad" or should I ..... oh well here is the recipe and I hope everyone asks for it! :)
Ramen Noodle Salad 1/2 head green cabbage, chopped 1/2 carrot, shredded 4 green onions, chopped 1 package ramen noodles (Oriental flavor) 2 Tablespoons slivered almonds, sunflower seeds, or sesame seeds
Dressing (whisk or shake together): 1/2 cup salad oil 3 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar 3 Tablespoons sugar 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper Flavor packet from ramen noodles
1. Toast the nuts or seeds in a warm oven for 6-8 minutes, watching carefully to prevent over-toasting. Cool. 2. Combine cabbage, carrots and onions. Break up noodles and add to vegetables. Shortly before serving, add nuts or seeds and the mixed dressing; toss well.
This was really fun! Thanks again MaryJane! I did end up making a double batch after I tried it. I washed my husband's work clothes and they came so clean. It even got stuff out of his clothes that "All" never has. And it smells wonderful! Here is my finished jars. Well a few of them ....after all I did do a double batch! And I love making labels for everything so look at the labels too! I always get my clip art for labels and other things from http://www.pccrafter.com/index.aspx. I love that site.

And the "Cleaning Fairies" never did show up ... but I still believe,
This picture is from her blog so I hope she doesn't mind. Her picture looks so pretty you will want to do what he is doing......
And guess what fun she is up to....Making her own Laundry Detergent! And it doesn't look that hard...I am off to the store now to try it. And if you haven't been over to visit Maryjane you should...She has the cutest vintage trailer too! Check out everything! I thought I would share a favorite!
This blog is "Just for Fun" and I hope thats what you find! I can aways find time for my creative indulgence. I am always quilting or stitching while I wait for the "Cleaning Fairies" and sometimes I can be stitching for hours and they never show! Go figure! Oh well I alway have something to do while I wait. There is only 1 rule about viewing this blog.....Never and I repeat NEVER let my husband know I told you he loves to stitch. If his Ironworking buddies or his motorcycle group found out, I could be in trouble! lol
