I am running out the door right now. Instead of getting all this stuff done yesterday.. it all got shoved to today. So I'm pretty sure today will just be an errand day. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
I came across this wonderful link. This is a great tool for everyone!

It's friday.. this I do know. If you've been stopping by my blog this week, you'll have noticed I haven't posted since Monday.. This is very unlike me. BUT, in my defense this has been one of the worst weeks of 2010..
I don't really want to go into details.. I'll just say, car broke, truck broke, financially broke.. times 50. the end.
I have a lot to do to get back on track..

Saturday -sand blocks -finishing touches on sisters prom dress -modge podge paper on blogs -make stencils -bb cups and taco cups for dinner
Have you seen these cute little frames at Dollar Tree? I feel in love with them and bought 2 brown and 2 red.. having no idea what to do with them. I've had this plate holder hanging by our door for a few months, and as you can see, we use it as a key holder. Well, I have been bitten by the burlap bug... and as soon as I put the 2 together, this was born.
Supplies 4 frames $4 craft paint- on hand stencils-$1 burlap-on hand scissors-on hand
This is one of the easiest.. err laziest crafts I've ever done, lol. I took the piece of paper out of the frame and chucked it. Then cut the burlap to fit the frame, leaving an inch all the way around. then I used these stencils, and black craft paint. Once dry I put the burlap centered in the frames, turned them over, closed the little prongs, then cut the excess burlap off around the edges. No glue, No staples.. nothing. SHHH... don't tell! Easy.. Easy.. err.. Lazy. Which ever you prefer :)
**I haven't posted a pic of Duramax in a while, thought he might bring a smile to someone other than me, isn't he adorable? :)**
This weekend will be a little busier than usual. I am seriously welcoming this change :) I haven't been home much this week. Chevy Man has had an outburst of gout in his foot, so normal activities have taken about 10 times longer.. So I've had to cut almost all housework out of our schedule. Thankfully, he is feeling much better, so back to our regularly scheduled programing :D.. So now you understand why there are chores on days that they don't belong :)

There are times I use my bread machine, and times I just use the oven, depending on my day. This is a GREAT bread machine recipe. I've just changed a few things.
First thing is to know your bread machine manufacturers recommended way to place ingredients into the pan. Mine is wet, dry, then yeast in a little indent on top of the dry.
Best Bread Machine Bread 1 cuip warm water 2 TBSP white siugar 1 (.25 ounce) yeast 1/4 cup veggie oil 3 cups flour 1.5 tsp salt
Select basic or white bread setting and press start.
So after I place all the ingredients into the bread machine pan. Then, here is the trick, instead of pressing the pan in until it clicks into the base I just set it into the hole. Then I turn it onto basic setting. About 30 minutes later the machine will beep signaling it is going into "rise" mode. I then unplug the machine, plug it back in and click the pan down into the base and start it back on "basic" mode. and let it cook!
Remember my post about finding a Goodwill? I found this fun little thing as well. Ya, you guessed it, no idea what to do with it. But it is so pretty! So I turned to Angie and her awesome group of readers. So head on over to The Country Chic Cottage and offer up some of your awesome crafty ideas! I can't wait to see what everyone thinks I should do with it :)
Is your mom hard to buy for? Seriously, I can never decide what to get my mom. She just moved and doesn't have her new house decorated completely yet. She has been trying to find something for her dinning room wall for a few months. So my sister and I brainstormed and came up with this.
Supplies 5 frames-$5 primer-$2.97 (on hand) I did use the whole can. black spray paint-$.97 (on hand) burlap-$2.47/yard (on hand) You'll need a little less than a yard, but that depends on how many letters you choose. paper-on hand x-acto knife-on hand- But, they have these right now at my Honk's dollar store. Hot glue-on hand
Total $8.44 and up
I forgot to take a picture of the frames before but they are the ones at Dollar Tree. 11x14.. and red. I primed (3 times) and painted them black. All with spray paint, I even used the 97 cent walmart black :)
We started out by picking the word we wanted. Printed it out until we found the size and font that fit. We came up with this. Then my sister had the joy o…
I'm so excited! We only have a D.I. in the town in live in. BUT, there was a commercial for goodwill on the other day, and I scoffed at the tv, WHY? do they play commercials in areas that don't have that business?-I thought to myself (seriously though, why must they tease me with a CVS commercial when we will probably never get one!?!) But at the end of the commercial, it named a neighboring city that is abouit 45 minutes away. SCORE!!
I had to wait until we could group a few errands together, I mean I can't drive 45 minutes just to go buy something now can I? Ok, I could, but I'd feel horribly guilty.
There wasn't a ton I needed. But a few things I wanted :)
$.69$.99 Then I found out the same town has another D.I... so I had to check it out. $.75$3Such GREAT detail!
