1  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Winner Winner Cashew Chicken Dinner on: September 11, 2017 07:25:50 PM

I've been lazy lately when it comes to trying new dinner recipes. Sometimes it's easier to to just use our usual go to recipes but it gets boring. I have about a billion recipes pinned and decided we needed to try one. This one was a winner!

I used a bag of frozen Asian veggies, added some onion, and served it over rice rather than broccoli. I think it's pretty versatile in terms of veggies you can use.

You can find the recipe here http://www.crunchycreamysweet.com/2017/02/24/quick-and-easy-cashew-chicken-recipe/
2  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Headless Horseman Hoop on: September 07, 2017 02:26:59 PM

I stitched this up on the machine for Pottermouth in the Vintage Halloween Swap. She said she would be good with anything in this theme and luckily Urban Threads happened to have this fantastic pattern. I haven't moved beyond making my machine embroidery items into actual things so it went into a hoop!

Please ignore the unfinished edge poking out... I swear I finished it up before I sent it!
3  Halloween / Halloween Decor and Parties / Altered Tombstones on: August 23, 2017 07:11:26 AM
I make a set of these Tombstones every year for a swap that is hosted by Retro Cafe Art Gallery. The only rule is you have to use the new set of four Tombstones. I purchased a little set of chipboard monsters and traced them on to watercolor paper to paint. The tombstones themselves are just painted then splattered. My favorite is the black tombstone with the orange monster.

Here is a collage of my past tombstones which I have shared here but am too lazy to dig up links!

7  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Winter Holidays / Mini Christmas Scene on: July 02, 2017 04:25:50 PM
So months ago I won a package of fun Christmas goodies from Alpha Stamps and I finally busted them out and put them to use. The advent calendar, gingerbread house, and mini sleigh were little kits I had to assemble.

I didn't glue anything down except the advent calendar so everything can be stored in the drawer when not on display.

Here is a close up so you can see a little more detail. The gingerbread house and advent calendar gave me a little trouble when assembling them since the pieces were so small!

10  SEWING IN GENERAL / Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects / Poe Kitchen Towels on: June 13, 2017 08:01:18 PM

I made these for gozer for a personal swap. I think they turned out pretty good even though I didn't have the multiple shades of black thread that were in the thread list. I didn't even know there were different shades!! Pattern is from Urban Threads
