Placemat Handbag

 Hello everyone, I recently saw Muriel make a handbag using placemats from the Dollar Tree.  I just had to make myself one of those bags.   Here is my creation. I think it came out really nice.  You can learn to make these by watching her channel Mscooperscoop on youtube.

Cooking Lessons

 Hello everyone, lately I have been giving my son some cooking lessons. We started off with Fried Chicken, Baked Macaroni & Cheese, with corn as our vegetable.  And for our Sunday dinner yesterday we made a pan of Lasagna with Garlic Bread.  It was Delish!  Our next meal will be Stewed Chicken, I haven't decided what to make for the sides.   Thanks for visiting.

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by.  For Christmas this year I made some Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods & Knots. Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate and Peanut Butter Icing.  Also, I covered Oreos in Dark Chocolate and White Chocolate as well.  Everyone loved them. I also made my own Christmas Cards using my BigShot Machien with metal dies.  I hope everyone had a great holiday.

 I had a few guests over for Thanksgiving.  I created some favors using the artwork from napkins, I glued the artwork to plain cardstock. I use a scrubbie dish towel and rolled some Hershey's Chocolate Minis in the center, used pipe-cleaners to hold the dish towel in place, then glued the artwork to the pipe-cleaner.  A simple and easy favor to make, and something they guest can use after they eat the chocolates.
