Oven Cleaning 101

I don't profess to be a fact I cry wolf whenever I can.  But last night I was inspired to make Baked pork chops in a sauce (made with Cr of Mushroom soup) so I put it all in my baking dish complete with potatoes...covered it and put it in the oven- set the timer and went about my business.  After about 25 minutes I noticed smoke pouring out of the upper vent on my stove- the gravy had bubbled over and covered the bottom of my oven!!! The house still stinks!  I spent 2 hours today scrubbing baked on gravy till my hands ached!  I hate porkchops!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Back in Time

This is an altered canvas I did of a picture of myself and my 3 siblings...I plan on making a smaller one with the picture of my youngest sister to hang beside this one.  I think it would have been better if I had used Mod Pog on the paper(next time)!  Another Bella Creations challenge.

Butterflies from Soda bottles

I used empty soda bottles and my butterfly punch to create butterflies..

 Then I used glitter glue  to paint them...good recycling project! After they dry they peel right off the plastic so you can make even more... great embellies for scrapping and maybe on headbands.

'Wicked' Fun

Today my sweet hubby Mike took me to see the musical 'Wicked' - I have wanted to see this forever.  Turns out he bought the tickets 8-9 months ago.  How sweet is that.  He even enjoyed it too! I think this should become a habit!

Life in "The Tundra" aka New Mexico

The weather this past week has been so cold...we have snow and freezing temps.  It is so cold that our dog's feet freeze before she is done taking care of her business!  She just stands there and cries!  Come on Spring!
