Spring may be on its way!

I think may be here, sorta. Last night was one of those nights were 1 hour of sleep was all that was going to happen(if you don't know me well, this happens often, I know I'm weird!) So I feel asleep around 4 and was wide awake around 5 am. I jumped on the computer as it is the only activity that wouldn't wake Chevy Man or Max.

I finally woke Max up about 7 and took him outside. I was surprised by 2 things. This will show you how random Idaho is... Snow and Birds chirping! I was disappointed when I opened the front door and the group was lightly dusted with snow but the longer I stood there I realized birds... Birds were REALLY chirping! I love that first day when you hear the birds after winter.. such a great start to the day. Spring is on its way.. err.. here!
I'm off to work on my creations! Remember all the fun stuff I got on Saturday? It is actually going to be turned into something, I promise :)


  1. I love the sounds of the birds in the morning. I will have to take pictures of the big bushes aka 'bird condos' that sit in front of my window where I do all my 'computin' lol.

    Can't wait to see what you do crafty!


  2. Debbie- please do! I'd love to actually see birds :)

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Braid

Source: via Brandi on Pinterest


2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.

How perfect does this sound for an easy Friday night din…
