Homemade Mac and Cheese - NUM

YES I am still on Hiatus. However, I am up to here *points to top of head* with TCO, TQM and JIT. :) See... even you are getting stressed.

ergo let me annouce the first ever Nan and BAGS class:


1) Make homemade Valvetta Mac and Cheese. This is not the stuff out of the blue box nooo this is double boilers and loads of other nummy incrediants... the main one being VALVETTA.
See? Aine even wants a taste. When she tasted it she got hooked. lmao.

Speaking of ms. aine..

2) Take picys of your puggy. I love her tum tum and her paws... makes me go awwwww

basking in the sun.... awww tum tum and pawwws


3) Joanne's President's day sale? HECK YA.... I have found a new craft: "punch embroidery" and also Felting. Most of you have heard of Felting but dunno if you hear of punch embroidery? Basically you can iron on a transfer, and you punch your way through it via the punch tool in green. How do you thread it? Well you can barely see the needle threader but it is the LONGEST one I have ever seen. I am quite excited to try this. I have found out that craft is very popular. In Japan it is called "banta" and it is even popular in Russia. You can even buy needles for ribbons - which I think it uber cool. In regards to felting - I am still debating on what needles to get. I hear they are easy to break especially if you are a beginner. However, never fear... ebay is here! I am currently waiting to see if I won an ebay item. HEEE.

the needle threader is basically the length of the hoop and very fragile. Arn't these transfers cool? I have visions of pug embroidery! lol. Now.. where to put it after I do it... does one put it on a purse? hmmm

FELT! I am still waiting on needles and I plan to expand my woving(the packets) a LOT.

4) SCRAP. The final part of destressing. For me it is a brain vacation.

The below is the start of my Pugvillage Valentine book. Aww will you look at Yoda? That is Aine's valentine.

Mugsey's and Pixie's card! And AIne checking out the rest.
And when all else fails? WE NAP. LOL xoxoxo Nan and Aine.

PS today would have been my 9th wedding anniv. *blows kisses to my joey*
