Ten On Tuesday... and a Tutorial...

How 'bout that...
My ten on Tuesday this week is random, to say the least...
But here they are just the same...

1. My new pans that I got for Christmas are to die for...

The Christmas present that I use EVERY DAY! My sister says that getting pans for Christmas is the worst present ever. I, on the other hand, disagree. When you have been married for 10 years and the last set of pans that you got is 10 years old, new ones are a necessity. But these ones are awesome. They are stainless steel and they cook everything beautifully!! I am in love!!

2. Milk. I love it. There is nothing better with dinner, lunch, or breakfast for that matter. A tall glass of ice cold milk. Heaven, I say!!

3. A good book. I love a good book. One that you are so tangled up in that you constantly want to read morning, noon, and night. I haven't read since finishing the Twilight series. I need a really good book... anyone out there have a suggestion. I almost bought Love in the Time of Cholera at Walmart the other day. Is it worth the read???

4. Bounce dryer sheets.

They make your clothes smell so yummy!!
5. I LOVE going to bed before 10:00. Yup, we are lame and being 30 years old is almost like being 60 ;)

6. I loves that the days are getting longer. Mornings are lighter and when Ryan gets home from work, it isn't pitch black. Spring is coming...yeah!

7. I love General Hospital. I love February Sweeps. A deadly toxin in the hospital, an explosion, a sick lost baby, and a super couple that isn't even a couple. It is my guilty pleasure and I don't care who knows... I love it!

8. I love making something that I haven't made before. I made 7 of these little aprons for wedding servers. I drew my own pattern, which is kind of scary, but I think that they turned out alright..
9. I love that Valetines is only a few days away. I got Ryans Valentine today, I am finishing up parents valentines, and I still need a few things for the girls. Knocking, leaving valentines, and running, who thinks up this stuff??? I love it!

10. I love doing tutorials on here. I only hope that people like them as much as I like sharing...

This one is for the heart that we did at Craft Club on Friday. (this is my dining room...cute quote thanks to Danyette)

1st you need a stryofoam heart. Supposedly craft stores have these, unless you live in small town USA, like me. (then leave me a comment and I will tell you a site to get them on)

2nd you need 1 yard of cute fabric. Cut them into 2 by 2 inch squares. (Like so)

Then you need white Elmers glue and a pencil (a dull pencil)

Center the fabric around your pencil and then dip the end into the glue.

Poke it into the styrofoam.

Repeat until finished. Ohh so cute and super easy!!

The heart and aprons are adorable. I love how the quote turned out..very cute. I may have to put that on my wall too.

I love going to bed early too, how lame...You must read Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. It is a gothic romance that was better than Twilight for me.

So cute. I think it's a little too late to start it. My project right now are baby quilts, I have always loved making them. Plus I can try using my new sewing machine that I got for Xmas, it's still in the box.

P.S The new book Stephanie Meyer has out is supposedly really good.
