Here's the catchphrase: What are you pinning this week?
Noelle Wingate has a lovely Pinterest page full of ideas and fun. One of her boards is called "Dollar Store Crafts" and I love, love, love it!
Here's the catchphrase: What are you pinning this week?
Instant pots cropped up in my world around Christmas time. Many friends were gifted the magical pot that cooked instantly and can cook just about everything. Having a kitchen full of items, I wasn’t really jumping at the idea of adding another one to my arsenal. While all the food cooked in it looked great and seemed like this … Continue reading Meal Prep Monday: Instant Pot Magicread more
While I am writing this blog post, there are all manner of sounds coming from my kitchen. The red head loves to make how-to kitchen videos while making the daily dessert. Occasionally the dessert consists of three jelly beans (or some other candy) on a slice of bread. Seriously. It's delicious. We thank her profusely and put the bread back in the bag when she takes her bath.
Anyhoo, all the clinking of kitchen utensils got me to thinking about how those utensils could inspire quilts. Let's give it try, shall we?
It's time to pin! What are you pinning?
Happy Valentine's Day! I thought we might find some inspiration from the candy that sweethearts tend to rely on as the perfect gift. I hope my sweetheart brings me one of these:
Welcome back to Pin It Weekly!
Hey, check it out: almost at 200 Pin It Weekly posts! That's a lot! I know I have it in me; I just wasn't sure whether I would stick with it very long. Of course, it's still too soon to celebrate--ten weeks left before getting 200 posts of Pin It Weekly. But we'll get there, don't you think?
A new follower, S Sue, has a great quilting board, which I've added to the many that I already follow. ha! You can never have too many quilting boards.
It's been a while since I used a color for inspiration and it's possible that I've never used orange. Such a pretty, hot color that can be used with many other colors. It's one that was rarely mixed with anything other than its analogous colors: red and yellow. Today, anything goes, and I've seen orange mixed with just about any other color, so don't be shocked by some of the loud, wild colors that may appear.
Marly and a friend had a campout. Let me rephrase that: Marley, a friend, Jenny and Adam had a campout. The girls are seven; they are not brave enough to sleep anywhere away from at least one adult. They also have not gotten to that age when a child wants to sleep anywhere so long as they are away from all adults.
They asked to sleep in our camper, to which Richard agreed. Interestingly, they ate supper in the house, packed clothes then took baths in the house, and went out to the camper well past their bedtimes. Begging Adam ...
Guess what going on in the world of Pinterest! For one, Carole Sklenar has some interesting boards. Here are some of the "Beautiful Bottles/Glassware" she has pinned.
I hope everyone has been able to start 2017 with tons of creativity! I know I am! I got an iPad for my birthday and I already started sketching out ideas for all kinds of craft projects. One app I can’t live without when I’m planning things is Pinterest. Their slogan is “the world’s catalog of ideas” and it’s so true!
As makers, it’s important to keep our ideas and inspirations organized so that we don’t get overwhelmed during the process. In addition, Pinterest is a great way to show people your ...
Guessing by all the things that have been given to Dusti, her little girl is not going to need clothes. Nevertheless, I spent this afternoon working on a little outfit for the new baby. She's not even here yet and already I'm sewing for her. Something tells me that there will be lots of these little projects. I imagine this is what happens when you spoil a grand and sew every little thing she wants.

At noon on Monday, the wind picked up and a tornado blew in. Actually seven (7!) tornados touched down in or near the Central Louisiana area causing insane thunder, lightening, rain and drastic changes in the temperature. Oh, and flood watch, again. One tornado destroyed many of the older buildings in the Bunkie area, then decided to go to Marksville to tear off roofs. Along the way, it terrorized another small town. Of course, electricity has been out for most people and still is for some.
We were barely affected, thank goodness, except for the electrical outage and this weird ...
While in the process of putting my basement back together after a very long and drawn out basement renovation, my mom decided I most definitely needed more storage space for my fat quarters and miscellaneous crafting gear. My solution was a custom built 32” x 55” x 7” wall cubby shelf with 7”x7” cubby slots, perfect for fat quarter bundle storage:
Once I had measured up and sketched out my plan, it was off to the hardware store for a bit of lumber (and a positive attitude in tow never hurts).

What does one do when a babysitter chooses to listen to her charge and attempt to make silly putty? Join in the "fun" to prevent real disaster. Nos to almost every request don't necessarily work, you see. Especially when both the sitter and the charge are grands.
Welcome back to Pin It Weekly. I hope you're having a wonderful last few days before Christmas! Richard decorated the house last week. Then yesterday we went together to get our shopping done. And today we wrapped gifts together.
