  2. Financial hardship
    As alot of you know in April and May we couldn't make the house payment. In June we got caught up. In July we got caught up with credit card payments and started making payments on the car that got repo-ed. In August our health insurance went from $690 to $815 AFTER I had raised the...
  3. General Chat
    I screwed it up though because I didn't cook it long enough (3 hrs) and you need to constantly stir it ..when I stopped cooking you have to let it cool before adding the vodka/vanilla it turned into a carmel color and hardened like candy...I started to get upset with myself since I cooked it for...
  4. Kitchen Basics
    We had balsamic roast chicken last night for dinner and I saved the carcass and all of the leftovers that were attached to it still. There wasn't enough meat on there to constitute having just the meat for a second meal. Instead, I figured I would use it in a soup/stew. I have never ever done...
  5. Just Tips
    I just finished my first batch of homemade laundry detergent. I am so excited to find out how well it will work for us. My DH is a skeptic but I think he knows that I am at the point where I will do it anyway and he really doesn't have much choice. I think once he sees how much $ it will save...
  6. Just Tips
    I bought a Zojirushi 1# bread machine last January and tried to make a loaf of bread. I ended up with a lump of concrete. I'm finally ready to face my fear and try again. Do you have any tips? I heard that it's harder to make homemade bread if the house is chilly, or if there is low...

  9. General Chat
    I've been trying to learn a lot here over the last couple weeks. Last night, I sat down with the store ads from the 3 big grocery stores in my area. I went through each of them & wrote out 3 lists for what I was going to buy. I just wanted to post here the totals that I did to show my...
  10. Meal planning
    they always say to plan a menu to make the best use of what you've got, so i've finally put together my own version for the month. When I got home from shopping I just went through and jotted down a list of all the possible meals I could do using what I've got. I was surprised at the length of...
  11. Simple Living
    Deana made homemade pizza for lunch. She made them from scratch using yeast, flour, etc. Not too bad and they were delicious. One is just cheese, one has sausage.
  12. Needle Arts
    I have recently crocheted a pair of socks, and it was fun. But I have that great yarn that makes stripes and it doesn't do it when you crochet. So, I am going to attempt to knit a pair. It's been a while, but I did find all my needles and dp needles. Keep your fingers crossed!

  14. Sewing
    Well I have found working with tiny patterns is an experience! lol Here is my 1st attempt. The jeans are a tad too big (as I didn't have my lovely assistant then :wink: ) and the top is a little tight. :toothy: Like she needs a tight top! :laugh: You can still snap it, but you have to pull it...

    I made these tags with clipart from PcCrafter and my own paper layering and other techniques. These are my first attempt at Tag Art ~ So be gentle LOL
  16. Scrapbooking & Paper Crafts
    At long last here is my first attempt at scrapbooking. This is DD's 12th Birthday, which she spent in hospital as she had just had her second stroke - She has just turned 16, so I'm a little bit behind LOL. Actually I have to do all five of them from birth! :eek: I'm not even going to think...
