I wish I had time for more artsy projects. I would love to try to create something like this from found objects. http://ow.ly/5yWjx


Baby Zoë has arrived!

Baby Zoë made her big debut last week, 10-12-10. I plan to share all of the details of her birth sometime soon when I get the time. (Yeah, right!) She is such a sweet good baby so far —I couldn’t ask for better. Max is adjusting to life with a little sis. We have our moments, but he loves her so much already. It’s so neat to watch them interact. I have lots more to share about her, but for now, here is a pic. . .

Grandma Taylor’s Goof Balls



Grandma's Goof Balls

This year, I made my grandmother’s “goof balls” recipe to take to Bryan’s Thanksgiving dinner (plus my usual dishes that I take). They are so good.  Here is how you make them.

Grandma’s Goof Balls

Maxine Taylor’s Recipe

1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 stick of butter
60-70 unwrapped caramels
1 lrg bag of marshmallows
1 box of Rice Krispies

Freeze the marshmallows completely. Melt, caramels, milk and butter in a pan over medium heat (or in a double broiler). When all is melted, dip marshmallows in caramel (I use toothpicks to dip the marshmallows) and roll in the Rice Krispies. Set on wax paper to cool. Eat and Enjoy!

My First Blog!

I am a blogger now. It’s official. This is all very new to me, but I hoping that blogging will help me gather all of the cool stuff I find on the internet to one central location. Also, I am hoping to use this blog to showcase some of my personal craft and design projects and to show off my little guy, Maddox a little. (That’s a lot to cover in one blog!) I hope to keep it updated regularly once I figure out all of this crazy mumbo jumbo. It seems a little overwhelming today. Lots to learn, but very exciting! I can’t wait to get this blog a rollin’.
