Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your day and have fun sharing with those you love what you are thankful for in your life. I'm thankful for my God who loves unconditionally, my precious little girls, my loving and amazing husband, our health, and that we are blessed to have wonderful friends and family. Of course it is wonderful to have all of the other comforts but having loved ones near is priceless to me. I am richly blessed!

Here is a picture of one of our turkey cupcakes we made. Funny little thing, isn't it? Home projects just don't turn out like they do in the magazines, do they? Our turkey -

Just a teaser

I took some pictures yesterday and thought I'd put up a little teaser. ha ha



Oh Joy! I have found a recipe I like that tastes like my Starbucks drink I like. I made it this morning and tinkered with the measurements a little, but boy, it is good! I'll put the recipe at the bottom. In other news, I have been working on the Open House items and I must say they are cute (at least I think they are). :::giggle::: The Christmas items are a little whimsical and fun and I hope you like them. I finished a holiday bracelet this morning. I couldn't sleep after 5:10 a.m. so...I made a bracelet. How fun to get that done, make a drink, and be ready for the girls when they woke up ready to start the day. I think I'll get up that early every day from now on and get a few things done. NOT!

Here is the Mocha Frappuccino recipe that I found on recipezaar.com
1/2 milk
2 tablespoons of chocolate syrup (I added more) :)
1 tablespoon of sugar PLUS
1 teaspoon of sugar
1/3 cup strong coffee or espresso
1 cup of ice (again, I added more)

Put all of the ingredients into a blender except the ice and blend until the sugar dissolves. Add ice and blend until smooth. Top with whipped cream and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. Voila! Yummy!


It is hanging in there

This is my little begonia. It is the only one left and isn't it cute? I LOVE the color of this flower and it greets me everyday on my front porch. I think I'm going to have to try to winter this plant over since it is trying so hard to stay alive.


Christmas Open House

Please come and join me for Christmas Open House (online) on December 8th at 7:00 p.m. Won't that be nice to go to an Open House and not dress up? Well you can if you want to. : ) I am making some Christmas items and will have earrings and bracelets and other items available in various price ranges so hopefully you will be able to find something you like for yourself (you can help your husband with his Christmas shopping :::giggle:::) or a loved one. Take a few moments that evening to shop around and steal a few moments for yourself. I'll be available that night if you want to email me or ask me any questions about the items for sale. The only thing you might want to bring is your own drink since I won't be able to serve beverages. LOL


Oh what FUN!

Bead shows are SO fun for me and I enjoy going to them! We had another one here in town this weekend that was new, so not many people knew about it, and that was just fine with me! I can go CRAZY at the bead shows and have to stop myself. There were so many wonderful sterling silver beads and gemstones, and pearls there that I could carted home half of the items if I had the money. LOL I purchased a few strands of beads that I have been wanting to get so I was tickled to bring them home with me. I showed them to my daughter and we had fun looking through the different strands of beads and silver beads I purchased. Each new strand became her "favorite one"! She gasped with each new strand I pulled out of the bag. I guess that means I feel just like a three year old because I love it just as much as she does. :::giggle::: I can't wait to use my new items and will have fun making them for the Open House that I'm going to have in a few weeks. Yippee! I will have more news on that in a few days. You just can't wait, can you? Enjoy your Sunday!


Celebrate Life Lampwork Bracelet

For some time I have wanted to create a bracelet that could be purchased by and for women who are breast cancer survivors. So many women are affected by this horrible disease that I wanted to create a bracelet that would honor those women and the amazing strength they show to fight this cancer that rages within them. I know quite a few women who have battled this and won and I am amazed at their outlook on life. It is a fight for your life when you are diagnosed and I'm proud to know just a few of these women and be inspired by their testimony. I would be honored to make one of these for you or someone you love who has battled this cancer.
