Who am I?

I am not crafty by nature....but I am learning =D I will share my experiences with you(good & bad) with crafts, DIY, cooking, and life. I say what's on my mind, and remain honest, it's just who I am. Love it or leave it =D So follow me and see my progress as I document my journey, and If All Else Fails....at least you have gained a friend and gotten some great tips or maybe learned something new along the way!

Unless you live under a rock I'm sure you have heard that the big game is this Sunday.
I am not a fan of watching any sports unless I am there in person.
Honestly it is an entirely different experience actually being at a game or big event.
I will probably check in for the halftime show & a few commercials,
I mean c'mon isn't that why most of us Mamas watch it anyways? Lol
So whether you're having friends over, going somewhere,
or just watching the game with family I
wanted to post some things that will help you
make the most out of your Super Bowl Party, & not spend it in the kitchen all day.
Here are a few simple, fast, & tasty apps for your "party"
I have made these Creamy Spinach Pinwheels from
A Few Shortcuts quite a few times-a definite keeper!
I have a list of recipes I want to try from the same site so here are some that would be
perfect for any get together.
This Buffalo Chicken Dip gives you the flavor of hot wings without the mess! Score!
And fresh Salsa is the best.
And for a little something sweet how about S'mores Pops!?!
& for all of you football fans out there
is offering up a FREE mat of any NFL team you like just for
picking the Super Bowl team that wins!
Entering is simple so why not show the football fanatic in your life that you have team spirit too :)
I'm rooting for
(that's not my house btw, oh and when I say "rooting for" I really mean
I randomly chose )=D

So I am realizing (after almost a year of blogging) that
*it's OK not to post something every single day(not saying I have),
* it's time to really start opening up on here & letting down my walls as a blogger,
*if I have a stressful week and can't find any free time to craft or post that my readers will
forgive me, after all most of you are moms and/or fellow bloggers & you understand,
*& that I want to have followers that like & read my blog for what I post about,
and I will no longer require it for giveaway entries.
OK, thank you for all who linked up last week!
Look at me favs
Check out what my new friend Donna from Loopy Loop Creationsmade, so simple
I love bringing nature inside & here's how to use it for Vday from Making Over The Martins
This lovely clutch comes from Sew Fantastic, & she says it's a great
beginners project. So I will totally try it out just as soon as I get my sewing
machine out of the box & figure out how the thing works ;D
I LOVE everything about this scrabble tile! Wow so pretty!
Artsy Va Va shows us how
& ever wonder how to make you're own baker's twine?
Vanessa over at Nifty Thrifty Things has the answer.
Great posts this week! I am excited to see what you link up this week! If you
have been featured in my Stay At Home Nation Spotlight then grab yourself my button
(located at the top of my sidebar) & post it proudly because you earned it!
Now let's have fun & link up below. All I ask is that you visit at least 2 other links
this week & leave them a comment letting them know you saw them at my party (please & thank you)!
Have fun & lookout for the Redken review & giveaway soon
(sorry it was delayed waiting on some final details regarding the post)
I may skip onto the next giveaway item. . .
you will have to wait & see.

Maybe it's a surefire giveaway that I am not a well seasoned blogger,
yes it's true I am coming up on my 1 year mark of being a blogger. I really
enjoy blogging & crafting, as well as cooking(and eating too) :)
I just wish I had more time to do it all.
I feel like I have not given my blog the attention it deserves,
so get ready for 2012 as I have a ton in store for you all!
I know My Favorite Things Friday Party has been MIA so lets bring
it back with a BANG!
Have fun No Rules! But I do ask that you please consider to continue to help spread the word about my
blog & my Link party by posting my button in your 'parties' section under Friday link parties.
I have had quite a few of my posts pinned on pintrest so that's a good option too, &
if you enjoy my blog, giveaways, & parties then be sure to follow me.
I have a cool new product from Redken I am giving away tomorrow
so make sure you don't miss it!
I hope you are all having a great week, I am eager to
see what you all have been up to.
Have fun linking up & check out some of the other links before yours & let them know where you saw them ;)
I'm sorry I haven't been posting much recently but I'm really trying to get the house organized & get rid of things we don't need or aren't using for 2012. We really want to get
the most out of our lives in 2012 & simplify.
I'm sure you have read other bloggers who have said the same thing. I know it sounds great but
is it possible to make such drastic changes?
Join me in 2012 as I simplify my life, lose this baby weight, & get organized.
I will be posting tips for making these things a reality & I would really love for you all to
share in my journey with me.
We all have areas in our lives that we would like to change or better.
If you want to enjoy life more, get fit, & organize your life once and for all then
let's make it happen this year!!!
Why not do it together & share each others progress & tips?
Even if you have personally made changes like these to better your life then
it would be great for you to share your success stories with all of us to
help encourage us that it CAN BE DONE!!
There was Occupy Wall Street & now I'm starting
Simplify 2012 at Stay At Home Nation.
Contact me HERE if you would like to guest post with tips for
organizing, weight loss, simplifying your life, or anything else amazingly helpful.
My Favorite Things Friday Link Party will still continue
every Friday at midnight & will be open all week, so be sure to link up whatever
you have been busy working on. I love to see all of your craftiness & keep an eye out for my weekly features from the previous week's party!
yes I say ya'll but I do not have a southern accent......
"ya'll" is probably the only southern thing that I have picked up in my 31 years living in
Georgia, well that & grits.
