She did not!! a post about cooking

Most of you out there know I hate to cook, bake, or  anything that has to do with the kitchen!!  I am not sure why....... if it is lack of recipes,  never learned properly,  or what but I hate it.  I joke with my friends that my next house won't have a kitchen just a fridge and a microwave.  But, all that has changed since being introduced to Pinterest and checking everyones pins,   I WANT TO COOK!!  Sheesh!! go figure!  I was off today and decided to try a casserole, I have been cleaning and decorating for Christmas and wanted something fast.  Welcome the cutting edge of ordinary blog!!  I tried her Cowboy Casserole and it is DELISH!!  So I thought I would share it with you!!

yo yo pushpin tutorial

What you need
flat head push pin

Make a yo yo.  I used the smallest (green) yo yo maker
before you have close the yo yo up push the pin into the flat bottom

finish closing and secure.
embellish with beads and buttons - or leave plain

You can also glue a round magnet into the yo yo to make a magnet instead of a push pin.

Two fun Christmas events coming soon

It is almost time for our annual "Christmas Open House"  The Material Girl elves have been busy creating lots of fun, fast projects for you to make.  They are so cute you might have to make 2 of some of them, one for you and a gift.  Then this year we are trying something new, kind of like our "Ghouls  Night Out" only better.  It's called "Deck the Halls" What could be more fun than getting together with your crafty friends, eating and creating, and a lot of laughs!!  Watch the blog or our Facebook page for more details.

When is too early for Christmas?

The big debate is when is it too early for Christmas to be up and out in retail stores.  What is your take on this?    If you are a quilter or a stitcher we need to start these projects early in order to finish them.  As a shop owner, I can say we receive most of our Holiday fabrics in June,  yes I said June.  We don't put ours out until July, and usually don't have models up until at least August, maybe September.  I do and try and get all of my shopping done before Thanksgiving.  That way I can focus on any last minute sewing, relaxing, and just enjoying the Season.  I love Christmas music and usually drive everyone nuts with my "Donny and Marie"  Christmas music.  I would love to hear your thoughts on this so leave me a note tell me what you think.  Oh and remember "Be Nice" Santa's watching you:)

Sewing jar tutorial

I went to a late sew the other night and thought what a pain it was to pack up all my "tools" to take with.  I wish I had a container that I could just through in my travel bag and go.  After a little research and thinking this what will be in my travel bag...I am even buying stuff to just leave in here so I don't forget my seam ripper which is my best friend.

mason jar  - any size
Lid - ring and sealing disk
fabric scrap

Trace the sealing disk onto cardboard and cut out
lay sealing disk onto fabric and cut out 1 inch bigger
sandwich fabric, stuffing cardboard together and stuff into lid ring
glue fabric tails onto bottom of cardboard
push sealing disk in (glue to cardboard if you want)
fill jar with desired bits.

These also make a perfect gift for those sewers in you life.
