Boy, What a Wonderful Week-end!

Well, I haven't done any stamping for a while, but I have really been enjoying time with my daughter. She is a junior at Bob Jones University and she took a long week-end to come home. One of the many things she wanted to do was learn how to make my "famous" Monkey Bread. Here is the recipe and a picture of her creation. She did a great job!

Quick Monkey Bread

1/2 cup chopped pecans

1/2 cup sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon

3 (10 ounce) cans refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (honey butter flavor)

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

Sprinkle pecans evenly in bottom of a well-greased 10 inch Bundt pan. Set pan aside.

Combine sugar and cinnamon. Cut biscuits into quarters; roll each piece in sugar mixture and layer in pan. Combine brown sugar and butter; pour over dough. Bake at 350 for 30 to 40 minutes. Cool bread 10 minutes in pan; invert onto serving platter.

Yield: one 10 inch coffee cake

I have also been working with yarn. I don't know what got into me, but I just decided one day several weeks ago that I needed to crochet…..or knit. So, I have been doing both. Here is a project I finished over the week-end. I hope to see it on one of my favorite little girls soon!

 Hopefully, I will have some paper crafts to show this week!

Oh What a Beautiful Day

It has been absolutely gorgeous in North Carolina today!  After a few morning hours in the yard, I came in to finish up these two cards so I could share them today.  There are so many March birthdays in my family that I don't know if I will be able to keep up.  Most of them are men, so I really have to get busy with the masculine creativity. I just got an order with some new sets that should help with that.

Hope you enjoy!

Happy Hump Day

I love Wednesdays!  Why?  Because I get to go to church tonight and learn from God's Word and fellowship with some really awesome people!  Wednesday also marks the middle of the work week and that means the week-end will be here soon.  Don't we all live for the week-ends?!!

I wanted to share another card I made while stamping with my sister and niece a few weeks ago.  Seems like lots of our friends are saying farewell to their parents.  Though we know they will be reunited someday, it is still so hard to part with them.  I will be sending this one to a special friend who recently lost his father.

Happy Tuesday Everyone

Tonight is our annual Faithful Friends meal and reveal.  I didn't participate last year, but am looking forward to having a Faithful Friend this year.  It is sometimes hard to keep my identity a secret though, because my craftiness is well known in my church :)

I want to share another project I did for Valentines.  I found this on Splitcoast and they are so easy and pack lots of WOW!

These little "packs" hold Ghirardelli chocolate squares.  Yummy!

Happy Valentine’s Day

Oh, it has been a long time since I posted, but I have been very busy. Here are some of my recent projects. I am really going to try to get in a routine with my blog posts!
