After years of having a food calendar for dinners, I decided to post them on line. Week by week. If you are looking for different meals you are welcome to try mine. Most of my recipes are easy recipes. And most I cook in the crockpot.
I have not been crafting too much lately. I actually started another job right after the first of the year. After being with my other company for over 2 years I am trying to get back into the swing of things. But don't worry, I will be back soon with new items. After all, I promised myself that I am not buying any gifts this year for the extended family. So now I have to be creative!

I'm still working on felt ornaments. I am doing this mainly because this coming Christmas I going to do a completely homemade Christmas. The only time this may not work is at Auntie Doris's holiday get-together. We do a white elephant gift exchange and every body that participates is suppost to bring a gift valued at $25.
Anyway, at this time I am making felt birds. Tye original pattern is a BHG design (I believe). I will post pictures after i get a few done.

I think this is next year Christmas gift :)
I think this would be fun to do with the kids. It seems easy (and just messy enough) to keep their interests. Plus, I have a billion cookie cutters that I can use.
Enjoy....and get crafting.
This morning I was on craftster.com and ran across this:
These are too stinkin' cute!
Here is the official link: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417802.0 Travel there to see the craftster's ingredients and any tips she may have posted.
I have so many old glass bulbs that are chipping and I think with a little cosmetic puff paint and then this idea on top (and bottom) I may be able to bring new life into old ornaments!

Leslie's Art and Sew: Who is Junker Jane?:
Below is a picture of the Junker Jane dolls (this picture was taken from Leslie's Art and Sew blog). For more information please click on the link above or on the picture.
On Leslie's blog you will even see a tutorial for how she makes her style of Junker Jane dolls.
Here is the menegery of felt penguin that I have done so far.
I am still planning on making two more: a red and pink one, and a purple and white one.
My next project will be owls. A simple yet hopefully cute owl. Not as many pieces as my first owl. (Plus now I have the blanket stitch down.)
My mom is coming up this weekend. We are going to be picking up more felt (yippie) and some material (have to make scrubs for work). As of right now I only have 15 different colors of (fabulous) felt in my possession.
Also my mom ordered me a few felt books off of eBay. As a child my mom use to also make felt creations and during that time she had a favorite designer. These books are all by this designer. I am looking forward to receiving this books and sneaking a peek in them. Of course I still have about 10 patterns of my own I want to make.
Anyway, here are the 5 penguin all together!

I did not stuff him.
I used puff paint for his eyes.
Hope you like him. I actually like him better than the 1st ornament I made (the owl).
