Saturday Night’s Alright, Alright, Alright

Tonight was pretty good! I got a few more crafts finished and we had meatloaf, black-eyed peas and mashed taters. YUMMY!!!

Let me start with the first with the food.  It was so good.  I like to cook but have to admit that I don’t do it as often as I should.  And since today was one of those days where comfort foods sound like the best way to end the day I made meatloaf.  This time I tried something different.  While we were at one of our local Octoberfest we picked up a few of those packets for making dips.  At one of the vendors the gentleman working the booth (who was super friendly) told us about a few being a good addition to meatloaf.  My husband immediately perked up.  He not only loves dips he loves meatloaf.  Who am I kidding the man just loves food! So far we’ve had the Cinnabun (delish) and tonight I tried the jalapeno Bacon in the meatloaf.  It was great! It was spicy but it was really good and would also be a great burger.  And who may you ask is the brain behind these great dips? Well I’ll tell you Little Dippers Dip Mixes .  Yes if you click on their name you will see their site!  There are a few other WV vendors that I like and I’m sure the next time I have a taste of their wares they’ll get a shout out too!

Now on to the way I spent the rest of my afternoon and evening while I wasn’t eating. I was crrafting.  I know last night I was in love with a snowman but tonight my heart was stolen by a peacock!  I was playing around with bird pins, bows, and keychains earlier and then my son brought over a book and there was a peacock.  I thought “Hey! I can make a peacock! Why not?”.  And that’s just what I did.

Paulbert the Peacock

He was the most fun item I made today.  I accoplished making a few other items also but he is what I love most.  Don’t get me wrong I really like the brooches I finished and may keep few for myself.  I’m particularly fond of red/green felt circle with Christmas button brooch, a heart keychain,  2 tone grey/black broock and a bejeweled Christmas tree.  All of which may go into my personal collection.

My othe faves!

Along with the Christms tree and brooch I also completed another Christmas brooch and a Christmas bow.  All which were inspired while I put up Christmas decorations in the kitchen.  Yes that now means that 3 rooms completed.  Not much longer and I will have the inside of the house completed.  Hopefully we have a few days of nice weather and the husband will be able to get on the roof to hang the icicle lights (the only decorations I don’t try to do myself).

Hope everyone has a great night sleep and an awesome Sunday.  Tomorrow we get to go cheer on a great friends little boy in his Super Bowl game of pee wee football!  Go Team!!! 

Had to share

I love Christmas time! Everything about the season makes me happy. Sometimes the weather isn’t my favorite but I am so excited about other aspects that it doesn’t keep me mopey long. I love the music, the family time, traditions, food, friends and the decorations!  I absolutely love the decorating.  I decorate almost every room of my house and my whole yard.  Last year I won 3rd place in my town’s house contest and I’m shooting for 1st this year.  I can’t wait.  but while I do wait until after Thanksgiving to decorate the outside I don’t hold back on the inside.
I’m one of the crazies that starts inside decorating as soon as the Halloween decorations are down. And yes as of today November 2, 2012 I have 2 trees up and 2 rooms decorated. So it’s no surprise that I have also been thinking of Christmas crafts. I have made a few hair bows and decided to try my hand at felt snowmen and other Christmas items. Here is one of my snowmen.   I’m in love with this little guy:

Day #2

Today is the second day of my blogging experience. It is also my second day as a shop owner on etsy and a store at spreeworks. I’m excited about all three of my new ventures. I have to say that I’m a little scared at the same time. I’ve never blogged or sold my items anywhere. I’m nervous about how people will view my work and if I’ll bore them with my endless chatter.

I thought I show a few of my favorite crafts today. I love these little felt birds. I can’t get enough of them and will probably make them for all the girls in my family and all my girlfriends for Christmas. Keychain, ornament, bow or brooch doesn’t matter I love them all. My sister has already requested a Keychain for herself and a hair bow for my niece. I can’t wait to try making them in more colors and adding different types of jewels, stitches and fabrics!
