Inspirational quote wall


I started doing this back last winter. Moneywise things were really bad and to add on to that my van had broke down and I had no way of getting it fix. I was in a really low place….so I started posted encouraging sayings, bible verses all over the place…..I wanted to see encouraging notes where every I was at the time I needed one. The kitchen seems to be where most of them ended up…guess I spend a lot of time there with four kids that seem to always be hungry. I find myself going to my encouraging notes often. So if you are facing hard times then give this a try.

Spiral Scrubbie

I have made these for gifts.  Add them with a handmade dishcloth,  potholder and you have a pretty nice little gift.  I make a lot of my side of the families gifts.  They understand we don’t have a lot of money and well, I think most of them like my handmade gifts just as well as something I could have spent a lot of money on.  I know that I love handmade gifts they hold a story behind them and so much love wrap up in making them.

Homemade Flour Tortillas


I tried these today.  They turned out pretty good but going to have to work on getting them as thin as I would like. Was a little to thick to roll up but think they will be great to make individual pizzas for supper. Taste was pretty good.

Garlic and Cheese Bread


I have made this three times. The first time I tried self rising flour leaving the yeast and all out as that is all I had on hand. Needless to say it didn’t turned out at all. The last two times I used all-purpose flour instead of bread flour. It turned out pretty good. Planning next time to try with bread flour to see how it does.
