Where am I?

Surely I am not in my house!! It's clean. Since Saturday I have had the flu. I have done nothing but lay in bed or on the couch. Today is Tuesday and I am feeling a little better, I just have this yucky cough and I still get tired and have to rest.

I have to send much love and thanks to my husband and daughter. They got all the Christmas decorations down and packed up for next year. That was a big help. Now my house looks empty.......but clean!! Thanks guys!
My daughter is out of school this week, I want to spend time with her but having this flu sickness hasn't helped. I don't want her to get it, at least she has had the flu shot so we will see if it works. :0)
We did watch a few movies together, and hopefully we can get a few board games in at the end of the week. I love game night!! She has been having fun playing with her new Laptop that she got for Christmas. She also got lots of clothes so she has been modeling them and coming up with new outfits by mixing and matching......

Have a great day! I gotta go get the Lysol to spray the keyboard off spreading germs!!

Much Needed

I hope everyone has had a wonderful Christmas. Mine was wonderful. Just wanted to let my readers and blog friends I have decided to take a much needed break. I am looking forward to spending some time with my daughter while she is out of school, she got lots of movies and board games so we have lots of fun things to do. I also want to DEEP clean through out my house, I have lots of "stuff" that I don't need. I have a few custom orders to work on so I am taking this time to finish them, draft new purse designs, draft some fun Home designs and clean out workroom.

I have lots of new, fun and exciting news for 2009. Please check back soon!!
Until then I hope you have many wonderful days ahead......

Oh no she didn't.......

Yes I did!! I went and cut into my favorite wrapping paper. I keep putting this wrapping paper towards the back when I was wrapping gifts.....I just couldn't bring myself to cut into it. I loved it. (I often find myself acting like this over new fabric, it's just so hard to put the scissors to it.)

Just look at it....isn't it pretty. The candy looks so real.
I told my husband I could wallpaper my workroom in it. I did decided that I would have to save a small piece and frame it and use it as wall art next year.
Yes, I did cut into it. I chose the BIGGEST gift I had to wrap. It's to my husband. I wonder if I chose his gift just so I could save the so!!

For the Friends

Shelby came home and told me she had 9 friends that she wanted to give gifts too.....huh??....9....! So we came up with the idea of polka dot zipper pouches. We placed candy, chewing gum, pencils and a fabric bookmark in each one. I think they turned out pretty cute.

For the Teachers

While in Elementary school I would make purses for Shelby's teachers because she only had one or two teachers each year. Now in Middle school she had 6 teachers and two are men....don't think purses would work for the men. So we decided to buy mugs and place two packs of hot chocolate, candy canes and candy inside. Hope they like them.

Hope everyone is having a great week!

Rain Rain Go Away.....

So today my good friend emailed me and informed me that I hadn't blogged today....twice!! You see she likes to read my blog when she isn't able to sleep.

The reason I hadn't blogged today was basically I didn't have anything to blog

It has rained like almost all day. It's after 8pm and it's still raining here.

Can you see the water running off the roof. It's crazy!!
KAREN....this post is for you!!! I hope you can sleep tonight. :-)

Something Yummy!

Last night I had some left over chicken and decided to make soup. Chicken noodle soup!! It turned out pretty good. It was a great way to warm the soul!

My Chicken Noodle soup:
Half of a cooked whole chicken (great way to use left over chicken)
Carrots (cut up)
Sweet peas (frozen is what I use)
Onion (cut up)
Egg noodles (wide)
1 can of chicken broth
Salt and pepper to taste
I put the broth and some water into a pot, bring to a boil, throw in the chicken, sweet peas, carrots and onion in and cook about 5-10 mins. Then add the noodles and bring back to a boil. Let cook until carrots, peas and noodles are done. Stir often while cooking.
It's easy and you can add any type of veggies you want.

I also make some bread too. That's super easy too!! Just take slices of bread and cut up in strips and brush with oil, sprinkle Parmesan cheese on and then sprinkle some chopped black olives on and toast.

Happy Monday!

Doesn't it seem like the weekends go by so fast?

It was super hard getting up this morning, but once I got some coffee in me I was moving around.

It's getting really cold here. But I guess it's not to cold for this pretty little bird. Isn't it cute just sittin' in our tree in the front yard.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday!!

The other day I was so happy to find time to get back into my work room. I was ironing some fabric and placed the iron down to move the fabric around. As I did this my hand hit the iron...........OUCH!!! I now have a big burn on my hand. Needless to say, I unplugged the iron, turned out the lights in room, shut the door and spend the rest of the day rubbing aloe on my hand. It's been 3 days now, the burn pain is gone but it's not that pretty!

Hope you all are having wonderful days...........stay away from hot irons!!
