hi all, sorry i haven't posted in a few days..i've been really busy but i have still been visiting all my favorite blogs when i get a few spare minutes. so, sunday i got this idea how to switch kids rooms around, etc so i could get my own craft room...with a door! lol i have had all my stuff set up in what's supposed to be my dining room but it was all open for everyone that comes over to see my huge mess! uggh, not good! the past few days i've been moving furniture, cleaning, and organizing. my room is very small but at least i can close the door when we have company, or i can lock the kids out when i need mommy time! lol so i'm gonna post a few pictures..i'm not sure if i'm leaving everything where it is..i'll see when i start creating in there. oh, and my littlest munchkin turned 4 months! where has the time gone? if you have any good storage ideas for me, please share! thanks so much for stopping by! xo,hl

hello!! i hope this post finds you all well! tonight i had a little spare time so i decided it was time to get crafty. i decided to work in my smash book. love these things! i have 3 almost full and i just ordered one the other day from joann's. i love that there are no rules! i take lots of pictures of the same thing trying to get it right so i make a layout with some of the pictures and use the left over photos, scrap papers, and embellies in my smash book. it works well for me! have you smashed yet?! well, here is my done page..I used all scrap papers and random stuff laying around my desk just waiting to be used! Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a lovely night! if you have any questions, let me know! <3, hl
hi all..tonight (last night) i went to a blog that i follow called scrapiverse. you can find it here http://scrapiverse.blogspot.com/ ...anyway, kory posted a couple of sketches he made up earlier and i told him i'd give one a shot. i actually have never used a sketch before. i just start cutting and gluing and it's always a suprise..lol i like how it turned out..it was cool having something to look to know what you need to do next. so, since this one turned out pretty good, maybe i will try another one of kory's sketches when i get some extra time. thanks kory! for the layout i used papers by the paper studio,cloud nine design letters for the title,and prima got flowers.i used my cricut to cut the circle at 10.5 inches and threading water border punch by fiskars. :) i worked on cleaning up my crafting space most of the day/night. i felt the need to try it out so, i found kory's sketch at the perfect time! hope you all have a great weekend! thank you for stopping by to visit my blog!! xo, hl

hi everyone..i made it! i really wanted to make a card and get it posted today and i got it done with not much time to spare! i hope you all had a good day. mine was pretty uneventful..lol well, here is my card i made tonight. it's for a friends birthday that is coming up soon. the cardstock is cordinations, the music note paper is sassafras, and i believe the ribbons are american crafts. i cut the cupcake out with my cricut imagine and inked the edges and then used stickles. i distressed the edges of the papers and tied embroidery thread on the little buttons. that's about it..it took me a long time to be get it right and be happy with it. i'm jealous of all of you that can just throw a card or layout together effortlessly! lol if you have any questions, just ask. thanks so much for stopping by! i really do appreciate it! sweet dreams, hl

I hope this post finds you all well! This morning I wanted to share another easy recipe with you. You can make this into muffins, mini muffins, or bread. It turns out great every time! I have made this recipe literally hundreds of times and everyone always loves it. Here is the recipe:
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 cup melted butter
You can mix it all in one bowl..that's what I do!
Bake at 325 degrees for about an hour for bread or until golden brown and springy for muffins.
Hope you try it out soon!
I hope you have a GREAT day!

Hi all, Had a couple of friends complain I haven't posted any new recipies recently. I made these cookies to take to a crop over the weekend and they were a hit. Try them out...you won't believe how easy they are!!
1 cup peanut butter (I used chunky)
1 cup sugar
bake until light brown (10-12 min) in a 350 degree oven
They are so fast and turn out pretty tasty, too. Give them a try and let me know what you think!
Thanks so much for reading!!

Hi everyone.. sorry I haven't posted lately..life gets in the way of blogging sometimes..lol I just wanted to do a couple of posts of things I have made lately. I don't have much free time but love to do crafts every chance I get! Anyway, I recently got this owl punch from Stampin' up. If you know me at all, you probably know I LOVE owls! :) With this punch I can now make a cute little owl in just a minute or so without having to pull out one of my cricuts! Thanks for reading my blog! I hope you have a great weekend! (what's left anyway) ~Heather Lynn
