Chili Cook-off Winner

Yes, I won a chili cookoff! At church last weekend we did a missions fund raiser with a chili cookoff. I was considering entering when they said the magic words: Creativity Counts!!! So of course I had to enter. I made my chili and then got creative. I used my football serving dishes and used them to display frito chips, cheese, fresh onions, cheese and of course sour cream. I just love Frito Pies!!!!!
I won a beautiful hand made apron! I just love it when I can be creative in other areas. Our pastor said it was the fritos that did me in! LOL!

Excuse the bad picture, I was tired and it was taken with a phone camera.  😦

Teacher Gifts!

My wonderful back door neighbor, a teacher, asked me to do a gift for her to give her Secret Pal at work.  I did a clipboard, clothes pin and matching card. 

(BTW, the buttons on the card look uneven but they are not, the picture was just taken at a funky angel!)

His Blambly

I’ve been attempting to scrap Drew and his love of his blankie for a while now.  I got this MME Laundry Line paper in the mail the other day and instantly knew this was the paper!  I love how glittery it is!

The greatest friends!

Do you ever just sit back and thank God that you have wonderful friends?  I am today.  I am very blessed.  Not only do I have wonderful friends that I talk to everyday on the phone and see in person, I am blessed with my internet friends.  One of my friends, has a blinkie that says, “NO, you can’t have my computer, my friends live there!”  And they do.  Some of my best friends live in my computer.  LOL.  I have been blessed through some very horrible circumstances to come out ahead with the cream of the crop!  Thanks! 

So to my internet friends I say: You rock!!!!  And thanks for just being there for me!
