Southern Sweet Potato Pie Recipe

When it comes to pies, I usually only make them around the holidays.  Even though I love them, I am usually in a time crunch when it comes to baking, so I usually go for relatively quick and easy recipes instead.  Well, for this year’s Thanksgiving, I made my usual apple pies, the recipe for […]

Handmade Cat Ornament for a Friend

  As much as I love craft magazines, for whatever reason, I don’t think I have ever made anything I saw in a magazine.  Recently, however, I purchased this year’s Better Homes and Gardens Holiday Crafts because it featured an ornament I wanted to make.
