Space Wedding Cutlery

I printed the sentiment on to
business card size
and then cut the foil paper
just a bit larger

With a corner cutter I rounded them

Then using 
double sided tape 
I put the cards together

I cut strips to go around the napkins
and taped them to the cards

Slide the napkin in




Slide in utensils and you are done

Flower Girl Ball

We started with a 5 in ball

With wide ribbon wrapped it aropund the ball
and tied 2 knots
using pearl pins and silk hydragena flowers
we went around the ball in a circle

After covering the ball 

rhinestone bling
was added
(sort of looked like constellations)

Bending a wire w
the gem at the end twisting it

I twisted the taila round a pin 

then cut the excess off

then applied them here and there

Thai Butternut Soup

I made this soup last night

I did have a few adjustments
I could not find the Kraft dressing so I ended up 
substituting Sam's Choice Sweet Lime Cilantro Dsg

  • 4 cups chopped peeled butternut squash (I bought free pre-chopped squash)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups 25%-less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
                                    Dump all ingredients except cilantro and                              peanuts into a slow cooker 
  •                                  and cook until squash is soft

  •                                    Using a immersion blender, puree the                                  squash or pour into blender
  •                                   in small batches; blend until smooth
  •                                  Serve topped with nuts &  cilantro. 
  •                           (I used toasted pumpkin seeds)
  •                          I also had some crusty bread with it
