Refrigerate your bowl first and follow directions for the Whipped Cream.
Pour banana cream mixture into crust followed by the Dream Whipped Cream.
With some Coffee, its a dream...

So Good Blueberry Bisquick Muffins

I came across this recipe on, but I scaled it down for just 6 muffins.

  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons and 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons fresh or frozen (thawed and drained) blueberries
  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place paper baking cup in each of 6 regular-size muffin cups, or grease bottoms only of muffin cups.
  2. Stir all ingredients except blueberries just until moistened. Gently stir in blueberries. Divide batter evenly among cups.
  3. Bake 13 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Crafting a dress from an 'ole tank top

So, I tried my hand at...crafting a dress from an 'ole tank top.  With some gathering of the tan linen fabric, I attached it to the tank and then put a belt around it to finish it. Turned out pretty good.

Trendy Braided Jersey Necklace

I made this Braided Jersey Necklace after seeing a similar one online.

This one is 3 pieces of Jersey fabric, with unfinished edges, braided. The top is a piece of jersey wrapped around the two ends with fabric glue. Embroidery Floss is then wrapped around that. In the future I will use ribbon so this process will go a lot quicker.

Children's Counting Bean Bags

These are some embroidered bean bags that I made. They'll be great for teaching the little ones colors and numbers.

These were filled with navy beans. If you plan on making some, these are cut at a 4"x 4". I suggest making a pattern out of cardboard so you can run a rotary cutter to make these quicker.

Monday, August 2, 2010 it's finest! Reclaimed Firewood Bench

Just recently, Andrew Yoder and his brother Steve made this Reclaimed firewood bench. This one is made from Black Locust, and wedges of Purple Heart wood.

With it's smooth surface, and sturdy structure this one is sure to be passed down in the family generations.
