I'm still here!

I'm sorry it's been so long since my last post. I haven't really done any crafting whatsoever. I made one name frame for a friend, but forgot to take a picture before I gave it away. I just haven't felt like doing much lately.
We have done a few fun things with the kids the last couple of days, but no pictures to show. We have made homemade butter, cheese and mayonnaise. I found some really great tutorials on YouTube. All you have to do is search their web site for "how to make......" It was really fun, and you probably have most of the ingredients already sitting in your fridge or pantry. When we do it again, I'll try to take pictures. We are going to make Chicken Salad Sandwiches for dinner tonight using our homemade mayo. Mmmmmm, good. And last night I made Chocolate Chip Cookies using our homemade butter. They were so good. Anyway, on to another subject.
I recently got a blog award from Twila. You should go check out her blog. She has some really neat projects. The rules of the award (To pick up the Lemonade Stand Award):- Comment on this blog.- Cut and paste the award logo and use it in your own blog.- Nominate 5 to 10 blogs you feel show great attitude and gratitude.- Link to your nominees within your blog post.- Comment on their blogs to let them know they've received the award.- Link back to the person who gave you the award to show your appreciation. So, here are the nominees (drum roll, please)....... Aubrey, Nancy, and Hope. Now, I know I don't have 5 blogs listed, but I think I'll just stick with these 3.
I'll try to have something crafty to show you soon. I'm kind of in a creative slump right now, so I'm not promising anything great! Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Maybe you could help me out.
Later today I'm hoping to go weed my flowerbeds. The grass and weeds have taken over. It's like a jungle out there! I'll take some before and after photos to share with you. Well, I think that's all the news for today. Talk to you later!

I'm thinking maybe you could make... different GIFT tags for special occasions..Wedding! HINT... B'day...Graduation. Unless you have already done these. I could NOT find a nice tag today for my gift...

Thanks again...
