Cricut Create a Critter Artwork

Today I finally worked on the projects that I have been meaning to do for the kids' room. I bought the Create a Critter cartridge like 4 years ago with the intent of decorating the nursery/kids room with animals.  At long last, I actually DID it. I brought out my Cricut (dusted it off) and set to work. I cut each animal at around 3 inches, give or take a few increments. I used Mod Podge to affix my cute lil critters to the canvases and painted over them to give them a nice gloss. I used the matte finish Mod Podge but I like the result. The last picture is really shiny because I couldn't wait until it dried to take a pic!

Cheddar Betters

I was perusing Pinterest (again) this morning after watching my church service online, (Miss A was sick today, unfortunately) when I came across some recipes using Bisquick.  I was suddenly reminded that my honey loves the famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits from Red Lobster.  He raved to me a few times about trying a version of the little yummies while in Valdosta.  All the time I was thinking to myself, I bet I can do better, LOL. So better I did and this is the recipe I came up with! Enjoy!!!

1 1/2 cups of Regular Bisquick 
1 1/2 cups shredded taco blend cheese
1/2 cup of italian blend cheese
1/2 cup milk
3 tbsp butter
1 tbsp italian spice
3/4 tsp garlic or garlic salt (I used garlic and salt separately) 

1. Preheat oven to 400F. Spray cooking sheet with non-stick spray.

2. Mix Bisquick, cheese and milk in a bowl and mix well to form the dough.

3. Using a spoon, drop dough onto cookie sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes.

4. In a sauce pan or bowl, melt butter, oregano, and garlic salt.

5. After baking for 10 minutes, take the biscuits out and brush with butter mixture and bake for 5 more minutes or until golden brown.

What I'm Reading Now

So right now I'm obsessed with my Kindle.Yes, I have an iPad too, but guess what...I love electronics!!!  Plus I am a multi-tasking machine so of course I listen to books and read them.  The two books I am reading right now are...

I like visuals, don't you?! Anyways, I have been wanting to read A Discovery of Witches for a while after I read some reviews on Amazon.  Then of course, The Passage has also received great reviews.  My sister told me she couldn't put it down, so I was sold.  I just finished The Hunger Games trilogy, which she also recommended, and that was awesome.  Now to see the movie and probably be dissapointed. Oh well, I want more Katniss!  I'll be back with reviews of these two books but so far they are great at making me ignore the other things I have to do with my unpack all the boxes in my dining room. :o)
