 I was a very lucky girl and received a new sewing machine. It's so fancy and there will be a learning curve so thats a tad but exciting and nerve recking. I kinda need a lil project to hit the strait stitch open road with. :) Maybe I will troll my favorite blogs and see whats popping in the sewing sites.

Working thru it.

Still trying to get over the loss of my kitten. Haven't created anything. But I did order $300 worth of metal stamps.

So I took a creative hiatus to focus on the home search. It's been rough. Beig 32 I haven't suffered a heartbreak in a long long time. I feel like my brand new kitten was run over. The good bones place. Contacted our realtor and said they reconsidered our offer and were willing to accept. I was so happy, thought the looking was over, my son wasn't gonna have to change schools. My brother in law could stay with us sometimes bc it was a nice safe neighborhood to cruz in his wheelchair. So 3 days go by and they don't send over the paperwork. My realtor keeps contacting them they keep dragging their feet. Finally he hears from them that they accepted another offer. I was crushed. :( they gave us a verbal pending pretty much to get a higher offer out of someone else. Here's the real weird part. It still had not been liste as pending. I'm trying really hard not o cry today. The heartbreak is too much for me to handle. Eman is keeping me busy an hopefully this too shall pass.

Not much

Yesterday I had one of those no good very bad days. Spill everything, lose everything, fail at everything. So I stayed away from crafting all together. Hoping for a better day today. I am gonna attempt to build this today with Eman :)

Melting pot

So I saw this melting pot and I had to have it. Even tho I am horrible with heat and burns. So I made some molds outta Amazing Mold Putty. And let the utee melt. And what do ya know, I burn the crap outta myself. Then I remembered I bought some super awesome Mod Podge hot glue finger caps :) ahhhh much better. My stuff didn't turn out so well, oh well.

Countered by the homeowners at 50 more then we offered. Over the asking price too. It has not been updated since 1969. Back to the computer more clicking and checking schools. SoCAL is so frustrating. I do love it tho..... I love this pic of me and a puppy! From our summer 2012 Alaska trip.

Last night with some inspiration from Pinterest. I made Chicken Alfredo Lasagna. It was amazing!
Heres how I made mine:

One rotisserie chicken from deli
Heavy whipping cream the bigger size
I used roasted garlic out of a jar but you can use any
Lasagna noodles
White wine I used Yellow Tail Moscato
3 cheese Italian  parmesan cheese, Assiago & Romano Cheese
Precious Mozzarella cheese grated
and about 1/4 cup shredded Tillamook Monterey Jack
2 tbs Cream Cheese I actually used Garlic&Herb alouette but any will do
Sweet Basil (to taste)

Start by boiling noodles oven on 350
shred chicken I just pull chicken off in bite size pieces and set aside on plate and grate cheese

Make sauce:
mix whole heavy carton whipping
whole container 3 cheese
1/4 cup  wine pour a glass with the rest yummmmm
1tbs Sweet Basil
whisk over med heat until smooth then add cream cheese salt pepper to taste maybe a lil more wine too.

I cooled my noodles bc I hate handling hot lasagna noodles.

I put down some grape-seed oil maybe 1tsp in my 9x13pan Pyrex then I layered
chicken half here
chicken rest here
lil cheese then some sauce
most of cheese add Monterey Jack here
then topped with sauce
Bake for 35 mins or until top cheese is color golden brown you prefer. I like mine a lil crisp

cool, and serve :) top with more parmesan cheese if your like. I am kinda a rouge cook and I hardly actually ever measure I just eyeball it all. Hope this turns out as good for you as it did for me. I also served lightly steamed broccoli with mine it was perfect pair.

So I took the man to look at the townhome I liked the bones of. It's overpriced, in serious need of upgrades but ooo man it's great bones. I love the half circle window. Reminds me of my childhood home (a barn style log cabin home in Alaska) so we made an offer. We have made enough offers to not get excited. Also I did minimal crafting today. I did go to the goodwill and scored, nothing! O well. My crafty thoughts for the day is laugh all you want at my lids rude lady's at bead store in HB but my lids from food trash work just fine even better then the dang bead mat you talked me into! Who has the last laugh now sucka's.

So today, I worked on my loom. Finished off a piece from yesterday and finished looming one today, still need to work on putting the clasps on one. Which to me can be the hardest part of the bracelet. I watched some Jericho on Netflix. Looked at two open houses down the street. Over priced and need new everything. But I loved the bones on them both. Now I'm just waiting for the man to come home. We are supposed to go out :) I also put 2 shirts in some new dye I purchased a month ago. My fingers are nice an. pink.

Trying it off my cell :)

Pretty much out of boredom for facebook and a need to start selling my items to turn a profit to continue my OCD crafting. Here I AM! BLOGGING..... I guess Ill be the first to welcome myself. LOL
