The Country Store

My church has an annual 'Country Store' where we raise money for missions by selling homemade goodies such as sourdough bread, jellies, jams, preserves and baked goods. We finish the sale with a chili lunch. Crafts are also sold so I decided that I would bake dog biscuits as part of my contribution. We've never had homemade dog biscuits at the country store before,lol! I bake them for my two fur babies so I knew that they would be more than willing to eat anything that didn't sell! I brought the biscuits home and placed them in the freezer for future treats.

I made 4 recipes of "Howl Wheat", "Paw Lickn' Chick'n", "Bark-B-Q" and "PeaMuttButter".

The Holy Family-Kim Bright file

This is my second Kim Bright file & I loved the way it turned out! It took an hour to cut it out and about 4 hours to weed. I just took my time and tried my best.

Nutribullet to the rescue!

I like to make my own laundry soap! There are tons of recipes on pinterest for this and the recipe that I use consists of Arm & Hammer washing soda, oxygen cleaner, smelly crystals and grated Fels Naptha soap.
When I've made this soap in the past it took a lot of time and a little muscle to grate the Fels Naptha bar. When I used the soap in the washing machine the grated soap did not always dissolve.
Enter the Nutribullet! I decided to cut the Fels Naptha bar into chunks that would fit in the Nutribullet container. I used the milling blade and it turned the soap into a very fine powder in just a short time.
I then decided to mix all of the ingredients in the Nutribullet. I was really pleased by the texture of the soap and of the way the Nutribullet made short work of pulverizing the Fels Naptha!


I made this luminary with a BooLand Designs kit, Winter Wonderland . I had forgotten to take a picture of it before Christmas. I had already packed up my battery operated tea lights so I was going to photograph it with a real candle. Not a good idea! I caught it on fire while trying to light it, but I still needed a picture of it. I was blowing on it, laughing & trying to get a picture if it before it disintegrated before my eyes! I'll bet no one else has tried to photograph a team project while it was on fire!
