Cheater Dumplings

This is one of my go-to recipes on busy nights. I call it "Cheater Dumplings" because it is so much faster than making the soup from scratch but you still get the homemade dumplings (which are the best part of the soup anyway, right?!) You can use any type of canned soup, but at our house we buy...

My Crafting Roots

Lately I've been thinking about two of the creative women in my life--my mom and my grandmother. .My mom is an amazing woman. She taught me to sew.

It's been way too long since I scrapbooked. I made an 8x8 album for my sister's baby shower this summer (which I totally forgot to photograph), and that's the last time I've done anything. That may be a personal record for me! I guess I just lost my mojo. But it's back! I pulled out a pile of...

Boppy and New Baby

I made the Boppy pillow and the baby. Let's just say the Boppy was a lot less work. :)

Quick Spit Rag

Just a quick little project. I had several white hand towels that I used as spit rags with my daugther. This time around I decided to make them a little more interesting. I just added some leftover fabric from a man's button down shirt to the bottom edge. I even left the buttons! These are the best spit...
