How Did It Get To Be 2017?

Somehow when I wasn’t looking several years passed and I didn’t blog!  I was busy making things and yes I was cooking but somehow I didn’t put anything here on my website!  Shame on me!  Well, I made a New Years resolution to get back at it, and here it is February and I still haven’t started, so, here I am, trying to get back into the habit.  Yes indeed!  Hopefully someone will stop back by, but if not, I’ll just be sending these out into cyberspace.

I do have a cool new cooking toy that I want to share.  Hopefully in the very near future.  And I’ll share some things I’ve made, and dig up some of the photos I took along the way thinking I would post them at some point.  And, I’ll post some cool snow pictures I took when we went to New Mexico in January!  Yeah, snow is a big deal when you live where it’s summer all of the time.

So, ok, I’m back.  I promise.

I’m back after a long break to go visit my new grandson in TX. Here’s a bit of serenity –enjoy!

It Must Be Spring

Because the lizards are looking for love. 🙂

Spring is Around the Corner

The squirrels are out and about and pairing up. That can only mean one thing, baby squirrels! I can’t wait! We don’t get much wildlife in the yard here, and I’m not sure exactly where the squirrels live, because I see them only once in awhile, but every year I do see the young ones playing around in the trees.
So, hopefully, soon they will be doing their acrobatic best!

She Thinks She’s The Boss

And who am I to argue?! 🙂

In Case You Missed It

It’s Handmade Monday again and the project I was working on today didn’t turn out.  I had such lovely photos of the beginning of it, got all the way thru and nothing!  I know what I did wrong, and I can sort of salvage it, but not in time for Handmade Monday, and since it’s still Easter Sunday here, I don’t want to spend the rest of the day on this.  So, I’m going to link to yesterday’s blog, which really was a good one that most people probably didn’t see anyway.  No, really, even tho it’s an Easter thing, I think you will enjoy it, and put this recipe into your recipe book for next year (or find a way to make these for some other occasion–they are AWESOME!).

Check it out here.  🙂  And check out Handmade Monday because those ladies make the coolest stuff!  Just click on the link at the beginning of this post.  but not until you check out the Butter Cream Easter Egg recipe.  🙂

Handmade Monday

I accidentally stumbled upon something fun this week, called Handmade Monday on another craft blog.  I’m so glad I did because I met a nice group of other craft bloggers with a diverse selection of ideas. I hope I can keep up with them! Please go check them out too!

Start At The Beginning

The only way to get started is to jump in.  And as someone else said, the best place to start is at the beginning.  So, a brief explanation is probably in order.  Something I’m not good at.  The brief part.  Bear with me.  I will do my best at that because I hate pages with lots of text to wade through.

My plan is to post what I do.  Originally I wanted to share my recipes, and start with what I used to cook when my 3 boys were growing up, mostly for them, now that they are married.  Just in case they wanted them.  I thought I would enlist my husband and we would make them (so I could actually measure ingredients since I never did before) and take photos.  That’s how the idea of this blog was born.

Then I thought, why not also do the same thing for the other things I do.  I do a lot of random arts and crafts, fused glass, mosaics, paper making, photography, paper cutting, you name it.  Anything that looks cool and fun and messy.  If no one but a few friends and family members ever looks, I guess that’s ok.  I bet my Dad will check it out.  🙂

So, that’s where this is going.
