More Magnet Fun

Awhile back (here) I told you about my old ceiling tile and how I wanted to use it for a magnet board. I’ve been on the lookout for pieces that would make great magnets. Part of the fun is finding objects that I can turn into magnets. I came across this metal bird thinking it would make a neat one.  I found these pretty paper flowers in a craft store. You can find some neat things in the dollar bins once in awhile too!

Terrible Twos

Jasper is just like a kid in his terrible twos!  He has been so darn ornery it’s not even funny!  He likes to go from one “no” to the next.  If it’s attention he’s after, he sure is getting it!  I hope he calms down the older he gets!


He just keeps at it……..


and at it….




He wears himself out!

Another Change

I just love watching Fixer Upper on HGTV with Chip and Joanna Gaines.  Love her decorating style.  I changed things up a bit above my fireplace. Again, just trying to lighten things up. Still love my primitives but maybe adding some rustic farmhouse touches.



We just had our 26th wedding anniversary and Rusty surprised me with some pretty flowers!

Cupcake Wars

Has anyone seen Cupcake Wars on the Food Network?  Jones Bros Cupcakes from Omaha, Nebraska competed on the “Country Music Award” episode I believe in 2012 and won!  Since then I have always wanted to try one of their cupcakes and I finally got the chance this past weekend.  I chose a Red Velvet cupcake. I actually wanted one of each but decided that wouldn’t be a very healthy approach. Scroll on down and I’ll let you know how it was…

The anticipation… Couldn’t wait until I got home to open the box!


Look at that frosting… I had to sit and stare at them for awhile… a very short while!  Smile


One last look…


How many bites did it take to finish the cupcake?   Not very many!!  As a matter of fact, it all now seems like a distant memory to me, a very yummy distant memory!

The result……………..

It was scrumdelicious!!

Sweet memories,

Found this cute little piece the other day.  It wouldn’t be that hard to make. In fact I bought it with the idea that I would make something similar but we all know where that idea went……..nowhere! lol



Drug out my stamps and punches and made a Pinterest inspired card. A person just needs a HUGE craft room with different sections, stamping, stitching, painting, wreath making, etc.  My problem is I can’t just zero in on one craft.  I like to do several so therefore I end up with a lot of supplies!


Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

February’s Coming…

I guess it is safe to say, I have become a part time blogger!  It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything!  Life just keeps happening and the days just keep getting away from me!  I decided I better get my hearts out and enjoy them before February comes and goes. I found this neat old ceiling tile and thought I would use it as a magnet board. I’ve had fun playing around with it and have been thinking about making some magnets from some old keys or game pieces or just anything unusual.  I’ve seen a lot of neat ideas on Pinterest.  What did we do without Pinterest?!
