Tuesday Display Chain A Crafting Secret Exposed

I'm slowly getting my Mojo back & decided it's time to jump into Misi's weekly display chain. This week's theme is A Crafting Secret Exposed.

Because I was goofing around on Pinterest again this evening, I have no pics to share, but I do have a tip to share.

So here goes:

Tip #1  I learned this years ago & it still comes in handy. To stuff small dolls or parts such as fingers & toes fill a drinking straw with fiberfill. Stick the straw down into the part to be stuffed & push the stuffing out of the straw. I use a small wooden skewer to get the stuffing out of the straw. It works wonders.

The other thing I would love to share is always take some hand work with you when going to appointments such as the doctor or dentist. While waiting to be called in, pull out your project & get to work. You'll be amazed at what you can get accomplished.

Thanks to Misi for hosting the weekly chain. Hop on over to see what "secrets" others have posted or to join in.

Have a great night~Becky

Henry Goes to Grandmas for Easter

Happy Monday All. Today is a day off & I'm trying to get my chores done so I can work on some projects. It's windy & sprinkling outside~perfect for creating.

 Yesterday we spent the day at my parent's house celebrating Easter a week late. It was a nice day spent with family. Of course Henry had to come along. Henry is my prim rabbit I bought from Marie aka OLM. Here he is hanging out with Cody (my oldest). This was taken right after we had eaten & Henry was ready for a nap.
Here he is in the truck on the way home. Hubby asked if I was going to belt him in. Hehe. He thinks I'm a little crazy.

Have a great week!! I'm off to try to get something done.

Today is a late work day for me & it was cruddy & raining, so I decided to bake some cookies. These are super simple to make & only have a few ingredients. Here's the recipe if you would like to bake some of your own.

German Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Box German chocolate cake mix (any brand)
1/2 cup softened butter
1 tsp. vanilla
6 oz. bag chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 eggs

Mix 1/2 the cake mix, butter, vanilla, & eggs together. Add other 1/2 of cake mix & blend well. Stir in chocolate chips & walnuts. Drop by teaspoon full onto cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Let baked cookies cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute. Remove to cooling rack & let cool completely.
