Keeping Busy

Today is a very difficult anniversary for me and my family so instead of being idle I'm going to stay very busy.....all day! I just had to share the beautiful roses I picked up at WalMart.  I love having flowers around the house anytime but especially in the winter....makes me think about spring :)

This is a project I've been wanting to do for 2 years for my brother.  I finally did it today!  My brother was a Navy pilot during the Viet Nam war.  He was quit a decorated fighter pilot flying over 400 missions.  He's my hero.  This is their slogan ( have no idea what it means) and his plane.  I put it on a sweat shirt.

I wanted to do something for my sister-in-law, too.  So more white towels :)  I haven't gotten tired of them yet.  Such a clean, fresh look for January.

Towels are from Marshall's

I made these last night ....Oreo Truffles.  You all know the recipe..
1 package Oreos of your choice (crushed in food processor)
8 0unces of cream cheese (softened)
Chocolate for dipping

Mix Oreos and cream cheese and form into balls.  Chill before dipping in chocolate.
Melt chocolate and dip Oreo balls.  Chill again.

These are a little heavy to put a stick in.  It makes it difficult to dip.  Next time I'd probably not use a stick.  They are just as yummy that way.

I sprinkled them with Valentine sugars and do-dads (what are they called?)

 A friend ordered this onesie for a new baby.

My all-time favorite design for baby girls and some of my favorite fabrics.

 I did a little something extra for Baby Ava

These little jackets were at WalMart last winter.  I love them and bought a few extra on clearance.

Happy a good Monday!
