Swedish Meatballs

Monday, May 14th, 2012

(picture to come)

1 bag of frozen swedish meatballs

1 packet of McCormick brown gravy mix

beef broth

1 cup sour cream


I made the gravy like the packet instructed but instead of 1 cup of water I used 1 cup of beef broth.  Then I put everything in the crock pot together and cooked on high for 3-4 hours.  I added some more beef broth during the cooking if it looked like it needed more.

A bow tie baby shower

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

I hosted a bow tie themed baby shower for my friend Gracen and her adorable little Quentin.

Jelly Beans in the shower theme colors.

Bow tie napkins. I found the idea on Pinterest.

Pom Poms… another Pinterest inspiration.

Mason jars as glasses with fun colored straws! More Pinterest!

Bow tie pin favors. Yup, I found it on Pinterest!

Q is all tuckered out!

Miss Gracen, the guest of honor!

Here is the entire album. 

Black and White Quilt

Saturday, May 12th, 2012


I made this quilt for my friend’s new little baby.  It’s only the 2nd actual quilt that I have made. I love the way it turned out, although I would make it a little smaller next time and use a different batting that would make the quilt more cuddly.  I still am not very confident in the actual quilting or binding processes, but I guess the more I do it, the better I will get!

My inspiration:
