Just wanted to let everyone know that we have not abandoned you! Katie and I are taking a short break for the Holidays. We are in the processes of opening up a new Etsy shop under the name Crafting LT

That way it will be easier to find. I have started putting up some adorable holiday barettes so go check them out. Big changes will be coming this next year so check here and always check our ETSY shop as things are always getting added.

Have a great Holiday and we'll see you in a few weeks!

Recipe Friday: Chicken Wreath

My good friend made this for our sewing night get together and it was awesome! I brought some home to my husband and he also loved it. It is a Pampered Chef recipe. I had to google the recipe and found it on What's Cookin, Chicago?

Chicken Wreath Recipe

1/2 C. red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 C. broccoli, chopped (you can subsitute green bell pepper, which is how my friend made it. So good!)
1/4 C. water chestnuts, drained and chopped
2 T. onion, chopped
6 oz. cooked chicken breast, chopped
2/3 C. cream of chicken soup
1 C. (4 oz) shredded Cheddar cheese
2 (8 oz.) pkg. refrigerated crescent rolls
Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Chop pepper, broccoli, water chestnuts, onion and chicken. Combine all ingredients except crescent rolls in medium bowl.

Unroll crescent rolls and arrange triangles in a circle on a 15" baking stone with the bases overlapping in center and points toward the outside. Scoop filling mixture onto widest portion of each triangle. Fold points of triangle over filling and tuck under base at center. (Filling will not be completely covered.) Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cut into wedges and serve warm.

You can also bake it on a cookie sheet, but it turns out the best on a baking stone. ENJOY!!

Tutorial Tuesday

Boxed Flowers

This makes a great end of the year or Christmas gifts for teachers, grandparents, whoever. I helped my girlfriends make this for one of her daughter's student teachers. It was easy and is so cute. I am making them for my girls teachers at the end of the year.

1. You can use a flower box type basket, or if it just a few flowers you can use a cute flower pot.

2. This step was already done when we got it but, all you do is use a Cricut machine or handcut the flowers and the hot glue them onto the painted popsicle sticks.
3. We then circle cutted mats out of cardstock paper and pictures of the kids heads and glued them onto the flowers.

This is what the backs look like

4. Then you take foam or styrofoam blocks that you use for fake flowers and line the bottom and arrange the flowers in the foam.
5. We then found a cute matching ribbon and hot glued it all the way around and made a bow on the front.
6.Then we put the varsity letter stickers on the front.

7. Then we put brown crinkled paper to fill in around the flowers so the foam doesn't show and it looks more like dirt.
