Another Totally Awesome Crafter....

I was in search of some Thanksgiving Decor and upon searching the web I found this wonderful site, and after placing an order for this Turkey: 
and a really nice conversation on the telephone, I realized this was a very talented and sweet woman. You can tell from her work that she really puts her heart into it. I also found out that she is one of my Prim Sistas...Today I went to the mailbox to discover that this wonderful woman (Dawn) sent me the most beautiful handmade Christmas Ornaments with the names of my children on them. I almost cried when I saw them. I don't think anyone has ever done anything so nice for me! Here are the pictures of the Ornie:

Aren't these beautiful?! Please go over to her website and checkout her products, you won't be sorry you did.
I have been busy with some hand sewing. I decided to make some Ginerbread Man Ornaments. They have been listed on my website and I hope you adore them as much as I do.

Until next time...Have a wonderful weekend Everyone!

In Need of a Good Soup Recipe?

I found this recipe in a magazine and ripped it out. I pulled out the pile of recipes that I have been saving and started trying them and WOW...this is one soup that my entire family LOVES..which is rare!
It only takes a few minutes to create and it makes a ton of soup that you can freeze for another day. It is called Hamburger Vegetable Soup:

1 pound Ground BIeef
1 medium Onion, chopped
1/2 large Green pepper, diced
4 Garlic cloves, minced
8 cups Beef Broth
2 cans (14 1/2 oz each) Italian Stewed Tomatoes
1 can Green beans
1 can (8 oz) Tomato sauce
1 cup Ditalini pasta
1 T. Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp. dried Oregano
1 tsp. dried Basil
1/2 t. Pepper

In a Dutch oven or Frying Pan, cook the beef, onion, green pepper and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. I put this and the remaining ingredients in a crock pot and place it on low until we are ready to eat. If you want to eat it right away you can mix all ingredients in a soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until pasta is tender.
Give this a try, you won't be sorry that you did.

Friday night was the 1st time my husband and I got out alone in a year. We went to the Local 11 Ironworkers Dinner Dance...What a beautiful place and the food was to die for. It was funny, but I realized that we didn't say one word on the hour drive there. I think we were both enjoying the silence for a change. Unfortunately, the Malibu Bay Breezes went down so smooth that the next morning was painful!LOL

My Princess got a new toy. If she is going to drive Quarter Midgets in a few years we figure she better get started now!

I had some time this weekend to create this Scrabble Tile Pendant. It will be loaded onto by tomorrow evening if you are interested in purchasing one!

As always Thanks for Reading,
