Chicken and Broccoli Casserole should be classified as a drug.

I’m only slightly kidding here, folks. I am a BIG fan of chicken and broccoli casserole, and the lack of leftovers prove my point. What’s chicken and broccoli casserole, you may ask? Well, bear with me…when I first heard what was in it, I didn’t think it could possibly be good. But boy, how wrong I was. Chicken and broccoli casserole must be a southern thing, because I never heard of it before I moved down here. It’s cooked, cubed chicken, mixed with sour cream, cream of chicken soup and… Read more Chicken and Broccoli Casserole should be classified as a drug.

CraftyGirl’s Featured Shop: IslandTreasures2013!

Spring has sprung, warmer weather is coming, and all I can think of is…the beach. Growing up 30 minutes form the ocean has royally spoiled me, now that I’m several hours inland, but I can still feel like I’m at the beach with the right accessories. 🙂 Which brings me to today’s featured shop:  IslandTreasures2013. Featuring a gorgeous array of beach themed jewelry, owner Alyssia Dodson combines the casual feel of beachwear with an upscale vibe, resulting in beautiful earrings and necklaces. Alyssia has always been an artist at heart,… Read more CraftyGirl’s Featured Shop: IslandTreasures2013!

Pizza pictures!..err..whoops.

So, I was so excited about making homemade pizza that I forgot to take pictures of it before I ate it. Uh oh. Today’s day consisted of listing mixed yarn lots on eBay…you can find one of them here. Also, I made the aforementioned pizza (which was delicious, btw), cleaned some more (yuck), did a LOT of laundry (eh) and finally got around to watching The Hunger Games: Catching Fire…and now I’m impatiently waiting for the next one to be released. 🙂 Today was also the first day of what… Read more Pizza pictures!..err..whoops.

Spring Cleaning..aka, I’d Rather Be Crocheting!

It’s that inevitable time of year again here in the Wilson household…spring…cleaning! Aaaaah! Today’s main focus was our master bedroom. With a little help from the hubby (aka, Mr. Muscles), I stripped the sheets and blankets off our bed, and we rotated the mattress. Whew..who knew those things were so heavy? In the washer went the sheets and blankets, and I began the long, trudging process of putting away laundry. If you looked into my dresser drawers, you’d realize..well, I’m a bit of a slob. Fold things? Pfft! As if!… Read more Spring Cleaning..aka, I’d Rather Be Crocheting!

Coming soon….

With warmer weather coming, I decided to expand my product line. Meet my newest project: Crocheted baby sandals! These adorable sandals are white and taupe, with a green heart shaped button on each. They were adapted from several patterns I saw online; notably, the top part of the sandal was adapted from a pattern on Jay’s Boutique Blog, and the soles of the sandals are from a Red Heart baby booties pattern that I use for all of the crocheted booties I make. They’ll be coming to the shop soon!… Read more Coming soon….
