  2. Giant Sunflowers Materials Thick brown craft paper Multiple colors of latex paint (leftover house paint does just fine) Hot Glue Gun One platter size lightweight/paper plate One dinner size lightweight/paper plate Start by painting the craft paper –make it good and thick. For a flower this size you will want to paint at least three large sheets about the size of your dining room table. Make them nice and colorful and enjoy the painting process. You can smear down a decent base coat with a cheap sponge or roller. Go out of your way to be messy. Eat some chocolate while you ar
  3. Ok, so I missed posting these over the weekend and I have a lot left so I am just going to start posting them: Thankful Tree Start by finding an interesting branch; tape off the base and spray-paint the top white. Fill a vase with nuts or rocks and insert the branch. Cut out leaves from construction paper (search online for leaf shapes), punch a hole at the top of each, write a thankful message, and hang with ribbon or twine. Dryer vent Pumpkins Either 3” or 4” dryer vent hoses (or both!) Hot glue scissors Wire Cutters Spray paint Yard twigs Leaves Twine

  5. Please deliver some flowers to each of the Ajahs matching the Ajah colors. That's not too crazy a task, right? I have completed the mission! *curtsies respectfully* **Torrie tips BlomBesie back and in a surprise move, snugglebites the mess out of her** Sorry, I haven't been giving enough snugglebites recently. Ah Mill! One of my favorite people. **Dances a little to the song before planting a big wet one on Mills forehead**

  9. Cindy, that sounds like heaven! I'm doing this one tonight. I'll let you know who it turns out. 1/2 lb (about 3-4 cups) fresh broccoli, roughly chopped 1 small onion, roughly chopped 3 medium carrots, roughly chopped 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped 2 cups chicken stock 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 1 pint (2 cups) fat-free half-and-half (If you really want the real thing, go for it, but fat-free tastes just as good in this recipe and that means you can go back for seconds!) 16 ounces shredded sharp cheddar cheese Directions: 1. Place the broccoli, onion, carr
  10. This is one of the best soup recipes I have ever tried. 4 cups of potatoes, peeled and chopped 3/4 cup of onions 4 cups of chicken broth 1/2 Tbsp. of salt 1/2 Tbsp. of pepper 4 Tbsp. of butter 1/4 cup of flour 1 1/2 cups of heavy cream 1/4 cup of sour cream Shredded cheese Bacon Chopped scallions Directions: Add the potatoes, onions, chicken broth, salt and pepper to the slow cooker. Set it to low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours. In a saucepan, combine the butter, flour, heavy cream and sour cream. Whisk until thickened. When the slow cooker is done, pour in the thickened mix. Stir, co
  11. This is another easy one! Birch Frame This is can be done with any type of readily available bark or sticks from your yard. Purchase a simple frame and hot glue the bark pieces around the outside of the frame. For an added touch, press yard leaves in a book for a week or so and hot glue them to the frame also.
  12. I wondered that too. I know there is some type of mix that is supposed to make pumpkins last longer, but I need to look it up. Would decopage work? Or those glue mixes that basically add a hard plastic-y layer over it? Or that spray that they use on the roses that last for 5 years. This is what I was thinking of: After your pumpkin has been carved, rinse it out with water to get rid of excess strings and gunk. Take a large bucket or tub and fill it with three gallons of water. Stir three teaspoons of bleach into the water. Dunk in the pumpkin. Be sure to hold it down as it wi
  13. Awe poor Zander. So while he still has to serve Elgee, I will give him the kiss he is owed. **Flips Zander upside down for a spiderman style kiss**
