See here how it has gotten fluffy? It's starting to thicken....
It begins to resemble cottage cheese, and you know you're getting close. Once it starts to change, it goes fast!
Suddenly, you have butter and buttermilk. All you have to do is kind of mush the butter together into a clump and pour off the milk.
After you're done rinsing, form your butter into a ball and squeeze out all the liquid you can. Now you're done!! This homemade butter is really good on some fluffly homemade buttermilk biscuits! I've also used my butter to make chocolate chip cookies. That's Sam's favorite dessert!

And the following pictures should have some sort of warning. In the true spirit of "boys will be boys," may I present two gross pictures of "my boys being boys!"
Bubba sits on a sprinkler head and says, "Take my picture!!" So I did. Then Sammy comes along and does this. So I took another picture.
And with that, I'll say goodbye.

I told her she could pick some ribbon for the neck and ties, and she chose this black grosgrain with white flowers. Then the bottom looked too plain, so we hot glued some felt flowers from Flower Fusion on there. They are stuck together with black brads.
We took this picture before we added the felt flowers. She's so proud of her apron she helped me sew! Now maybe she'll clean the kitchen if I tell her she can wear her apron! Think so? Nope, probably not. Oh well, it was worth a shot!

When he built the cabinets and shelves, he said he was going to make some nice brackets and use a dowel rod for a puch holder, but I got tired of waiting and decided my old way worked just fine. Here is the original post when he redid my room. It was back in February. I really need to paint those shelves, but stamping is much more fun.
Here's the close up of all my punches. If I get any more, I'm gonna need another towel rod! It's a good thing those rods are pretty cheap, cause I know I'm gonna need more punches from the new catty!
And here's the close up of my ribbon.. The top shelf is all Stampin' Up! and the bottom is everything else. I'm gonna need another ribbon rack soon, too!
Now I also have a computer in my stamp room. That should make it easier when I'm trying to follow a sketch or tutorial, so I don't have to print everything out. I can just follow off the screen! Right now that computer is out for repairs, but I hope to have it back this week. Well, that's all there is, talk to you later!
