Pulling Into The Station - Some of My Frequent Stops

Sorry I haven't posted anything in a while. With the holiday and then having a sty that made my eye swell shut, I really didn't feel like getting on the computer.

I thought I would share with you some of the sites that I frequent on a regular basis.

The first stop is a place with a 12 step program. I have to say the progam isn't working too well. Please visit Craftaholics Anonymous.

Look at these cute and simple burb clothes she made.

Our second stop is a place with a homemade vibe. Please visit Homemade By Jill.

Isn't this playhouse she made adorable. My kids would love this.

Our last visit is to a place where the more you make, the more you love. Please visit Make It and Love It.

I would love to make a skirt like this one.

Hope you enjoyed the stops.

From Mess to Nest

Sorry there is not Pulling Into The Station this week, but I do have a fun treat post to share with you.

Who would thing that something so cute could come from what's in this bowl, but it did.

I got the idea from Bake @ 350. Go visit her blog. She has lots of amazing recipes and ideas.

Here is the recipe copied exactly from the Bake @ 350 blog.

Bird's Nests

3 c. mini marshmallows
3 TBSP unsalted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
4 c. dry chow mein noodles
small candies, jelly beans, m & m's, etc.

Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.

Over low heat, melt the marshmallows and butter in a large saucepan.

Once melted, stir in the vanilla, then the chow mein noodles.

Coat your hands liberally with shortening, (butter doesn't work as well) and have some nearby for re-coating.

Hope you enjoy, and Happy Easter.
