New blog colors again.

I got so tired of the black yellow and red. So I went with a simple white background now. Loving it much better. Funny that in my scrapbooking I am also loving using a white background, a tan background or black. Guess I am just trying to go with the simple element in life. lol.
Lately I have been really into making cards, as I mentioned before.
Have some as soon as I get them down on paper (made) I will share. I am hoping to get some done today.
I do have one card to share later, but right now I have to go pick up Marcus from school.

Halloween Tags

Ok let me try this again.
Blogger was having an issue this morning and didn't save my post, and then cleared it.
I was I just walked away.
I wanted to share these cute Halloween tags that I made yesterday.

I am going to make some yummy goodies for family and for both of my doctors offices. So after I put the goodies on a tray, I am going to wrap them in clear celephane and then tie on the tag. Wouldn't that be a cute little treat for a teacher too?

The images were printed on glossy photo paper and then pop dotted onto black cardstock. I tied on a little twine, used a black button and a orange rhinestone. I threw on a few silver pearls, and outlined the image in orange stickles. Quick and easy, but a nice little added something. I am thinking about making some Halloween cards similar to the tags as well.

Homemade Doughnuts

Tonight I made the kids homemade doughnuts.

It is so easy.
What you need:
I got 3 cans of .45cent bisquits.

Put oil in pan and let it start heating.
Mix cinnamon and sugar together. I just sprinkled about a cup of sugar in a bowl and then kept adding cinnamon to the amount I think it looked good. Mix well.
Take the bisquits out of the can. Poke a hole in the middle. Work the hole to a bigger hole and it looks like a doughnut.
Place about 5 in the hot oil at one time. As soon as the bottom starts to get a light golden color, flip. The second side does not take very long at all. Take them out and while they are still hot place one side in cinnamon sugar mixture and coat. Place on a plate to cool.

* I was taking mine out and immediately putting in the sugar mixture but it was making them other doughnuts stay in the oil too long, so I took them all out and then quickly put them in the sugar.

* I also tried making some without poking holes in them and in some the outside was done but the inside was a bit doughy still. So the holed ones turned out better.

That long...

since I last posted. WOW. Lots going on around here I guess. Getting back into a routine with school and everything else.
Just wanted to stop in and share more excitement.
We found out on Thursday we are having a GIRL....
I went that night to Target and got 3 little outfits. It was so much fun buying little girl stuff knowing that it wasn't a gift for anyone else. I always love buying girl stuff for other people, but there is just something about being able to pick it out for yourself.
We are really excited.
Some of the girl names that I like at the moment are Chloe, Aubrey, Addison, Abigail, Lilly, Layla.... just a few.
Well Caleb spilled my water on my desk this morning and I had some paper and a scrapbook page up there, so I am hoping that it dries and it is still usable...oh please let the layout be ok.
Jacob was talking about going fishing with a friend of his, so I don't know what we are doing today....
