NEW!! HANDPAINTED WINE GLASSES FOR THE DIVA IN YOU!!
Instant Diva...add Wine!
Hello All You Diva's out there! You all know I paint wine glasses...usually with women faces on them. So, I wanted to try something new.....painting funny sayings on them. So, I sat down and wrote down some of my favorite sayings. I have made several, and they are okay. I still have alot to learn, and actually painting the words on them is harder for me because of the nerve damage in my neck. And trying to keep my hands from shaking is harder when doing broader strokes doing the faces. So, with that said... I present the first in the line I call " DIVA GLASSES". Sorry about the photo...thought I had gotten all of the glass in the picture. Will try and get a better one later this afternoon. All wine glassess are handwash only, and have been sprayed with special glass sealant. Hope you enjoy....Blessings, Deborah
Gosh, it is almost Thanksgiving and wonderful food and great family time! I can't wait! But, while waiting I've been working on holiday signs to sell at a very large holiday craft show coming up December 6th and 7th..... So, without further adieu, I'm spreading the Christmas Spirit and humor:
These have been sprayed with their sealant spray, but I haven't put their bows and strings on yet,but, I think they turned out great! Working on more, as I type, can't wait to share them with ya'll! Happy Hump Day and Be Blessed, Deborah
Okay, I really, really LOVE sock monkeys! I always have. So, I started looking on the Internet and you tube, and craft blogs finding video's on how to make them.
Of, course since I don't have a sewing machine that works right now, that was added stress on IF I could make one or not.
So, after reading through many sites, I realized I could hand sew one....even if my carpal tunnel killed me, I wanted to try.
It took some time, as the carpal tunnel did act up, and I had to stop and start more times that I wanted to, but....I made one. I have laughed over how it turned out so much that my sides are aching....I think it looks like a Cheshire Cat....lol.....but had alot of fun making it.
Wow, I'm on a roll.....two post in two days! I'm bacccck....and I'm a cooking! First, I have to give a a Shout Out to Amy over at www.ohbiteit.com......while I was scrolling through blog post I had missed over the past couple weeks of my "down time", I discovered her blog....she has some wonderfully sounding recipes, and one caught my eye.... It is a very easy recipe using canned biscuits, cheese, and a little butter! I don't know about ya'll...but, down south, anything with butter is great! Basically, you can use a cake pan, or as I used today, a small, glass, square dish....I pre-heated the oven to 350. I melted a half a stick of butter in the dish....just cut that stick of butter in half, drop it in the dish, slide it in the over, and let it melt. I then took 2 cans of canned biscuits and opened them and set all the dough on my counter. I cut a big chunk of cheese from my sharp cheddar block I had in fridge....and cut it into small pieces. I then took eac…
