Its been a while

I am not sure where the last month and a half has gone! I started a new part time job once again, thankfully this one is only a few hours during the day and no weekends! I have been busy making Snuggle lovey’s, baby blankets, and a cute lil’ bear! I need to make more hats, booties, diaper covers sets so I have lots for some of the craft shows I want to participate in.

I love how cute these look, and how fast they are to whip out!

No bake cookies

Its been a very dreary week here in Michigan, which makes the days go by so very slow! I had a craving for something chocolate, so off to the kitchen to see what I had on hand to make that wouldn’t take to long. The light bulb went off when I saw the cocoa in the cupboard.

Then drop by tablespoonful onto wax paper and allow to cool/set (this is the hardest part for me! I want chocolate NOW!!)

Share your Stuff Tuesday’s

I am reposting this to add it to a fun new meme I discovered.

Table for Seven

I am loving the challenges I am getting from customers! While I still can’t figure out making a sweater, I am however so pleased with how this mermaid outfit came out!

Is this NOT the cutest thing ever!?!?! I want to make a few more, and hopefully get some intrigue from some photographers! I have a few other designs I want to work on as well!

Still in the back of my mind

I am still working on the hubby for us to try and move south! I think we are going to have to schedule in a mini vacation and take a long weekend and head south to scout out some areas, and see what jobs there are for him to consider applying for. I am even looking for potential jobs, and would love to find something to do with north carolina health insurance agents. I still have the bug for working in the medical field!

The Carolina’s would be fun to live in, as would finding something in Alabama, so I could be close to relatives! That would make the move a little less scary, we would at least know some people. We would really know the feeling of empty nesters, as the boys would not be making the move with us!

Easter projects

I am linking up with Hot Eats and Cool Reads, MorningNooNight, Crafts, Cakes and Cats and Michelle’s Tasty Creations in their Easter and Spring Link Party.

I have been busy making one eyed monsters for some friends for their kids Easter Baskets, and then had the thought that I could add some bunny ears to one (which is on the needle as I type) and make a few bunny ones for my own Easter Basket.

The kids (my friends that is) will love waking up on Easter morning to see these fun little monsters in their baskets filled with candy! My boys are too old, and will just roll their eyes! LOL
