    Canchasin’s cool craft idea of the week rustic outdoor chandelier¬†

    This idea came from All Things Heart And Home such a cute idea! Right now at this time in my life for some odd reason I am infatuated with lighting …. It appears I am a few years behind the rest of the world but hey no worries I live in my own little world  I think I am going to use their above article and the one about a mason jar chandelier as inspiration …. Now if I can only accomplish this little task …. I think it would be fun to let the kiddos make the orbs and hang some solar sting lights to it and use them for our…

    DIY Western Theme T Shirt

    Good Morning World …. While surfing today I found this inspiring little t shirt idea made by Oma and Opa from  Grandparentsplus.com here is their link  Cute Horse Inspired T Shirt Ideas I am lovin the idea! They used a Wyoming steamboat stencil as a pattern one of my personal favorites. I would also probably use some rodeo stencils and barrel racing along with track racing horses ! The next time I race I am going to use this idea for our “racing theme” t shirts it’s always fun to go to Indiana Downs and know what horse is associated with the people. Oma and Opa Cut out some freezer paper…

    Almost but not quite Grandma’s Popcorn Balls

    I just love Grandma’s Pop Corn Balls although I have seen this recipe on many other sites this is the recipe Grandma Afton uses………tried and true….Rookie Cookers use caution!lol Making “Grandma’s Popcorn Balls” is not for the faint of heart. Since I am no “Betty Crocker” or “Martha” I had issues I popped my pop corn in a pot on the stove which I think there is an art to just popping the corn. I only burned a little bit ….not to bad…. Then I started on the caramel 1. make sure your pot is large enough …. lesson learned mine boiled over a smite bit..okay all over the stove……

    Advocare Spark Energy Drink for the Equestrain

    I must give credit where credit is due… lol Thank you Bekah Callaway Advocare Rep for turning me onto this. I enjoy a good energy drink from time to time! My choice Advocare Spark at the moment my fave flavor is mandarin orange, although I do enjoy their other flavors also and I have only had their “energy shots” once on a solo trip (I had my mighty side kick Brave with me) to get my horse from the trainer at Fairmount Park Illinois, let me tell you that is really good stuff!!!!! I believe it helped me stay alert on the long haul…. More on Advocare coming soon.

    Easy Biscuits And Gravy No Fail

    So today I had the luxury of spending the evening with Gma B. Our challenge today to teach me how to cook biscuits and gravy….Not out of a packet or a can….hahaha Challenge was met! After years of trial and error I gave up I cannot follow a recipe to save my bum.

We go camping every year and wish I knew how to make gravy from scratch (not that the packets are not edible they are! lol)however this simple recipe is so much easier and…
