Last several and crafting

Better late than ever showing some pictures of Katelynn's nursrey. Here is her name on the wall above her crib. I found a font I liked on the computer, than had my dad cut out the letters.

I painted and decorated them.

If you look close I painted stitch work on the edges of each letter with the oppisite color that it is painted. When I got done...I was happy but not real happy they needed something I raided my scarpbook stash and put some flowers together and hot glued them on the letters.

The ribbons I couldnt get even and tie bows that looked nice, SO---I glued a loop of ribbon to the back of the letter, used a thumb tack to tack it to the wall then made a bow out of seperate ribbon and hot glued it to the actual tack. And BOOM the look I wanted!

I love scrapbooking and wanted to incorperate it into Katelynn's I bought a Scrapbook frame...and have been making different pages that I can change in and out.

Now on to the food!!!!

A pudding Fruit this one from my Brother Brandon's girlfriend...Heather. Her's was a bit tastier...but I hope to make this again next spring and do a better job. But I have to say mine was still pretty good and it looked really pretty!

Then...several weeks later I got LOTS of magazines from my Mother In Law. Lots of the Taste Of Home Magazines. One of the magazines there were lots of recepies where they MADE OVER the original and made it lower fat. I believe this one was an actual Paula Deene Cheesecake. Original calories 500 per slice!!!! Outrageous but no suprise for anyone who knows Paula Deene. (Food Network.) This one has a little over 300 calories per slice, still alot...but it was YUMMY!!!
Peanut butter cup Cheesecake!
My husband said with alot of the lowfat stuff it had a bit of a odd aftertaste...but I Loved it!!!! It was awsome!

Plain Cheescake layer

Done and ready to eat!

This was a very easy Recepie
A tube of crecent rolls. Each one cut in 2.
Snicker bar bite sizes
Roll each crecent rolls around the bite size.
Bake according to directions
drizzle on cream cheese cake frosting (or reg white frosting.)
Ewwy gooey goodness!!!

Something light after all this fattening stuff.
Simple tuna salad put inside of a hollowed out tomato and some chedder chees sprinkled on top.
Very fresh and tasty!

Got home from the grocery and my husband asked me what the "Corned Beef Hash" was for. Since my hubby goofs off all the time I assumed he was pulling my leg, since I have NEVER bought much less ate Corned beef Hash. Well.....he wasn't. I love it when people put canned goods back on the shelf where they DON'T belong. Then people like me come along and grab something without reading the label. Thus coming home with something I have no idea what to do with it.

Well, all those magazines came in handy...I ran across a "Corned Beef Casserole" So I improvised and used the corned beef HASH in place of the Corned beef. It was a tad bit salty...but I must say it was pretty good...and might find myself putting "Corned beef Hash" into my cart again.
(this basically Glorified Mac and Cheese with the Corned beef added in and Bread crumbs added on top. with a little bit of butter drizzeled on top to crisp up the bread.)

And last but not least This is something I am in the process of working on. But I want to figure out how to add links within my post. And I am waiting on some stencils that someone is making me on a Cricut. SO I can finish this for my bathroom.

I will Keep you posted!!!
ONLY 5 more days left till I am a
