Life is not Measured Tile January 16, 2011

My SWEET Aunt has been wanting one of these tiles for many, many months.  My crafting mojo left and it didn’t return for a really long time. 

Finally I have finished it. 

I used Sure Cuts Alot Software with my Cricut.  Then my computer crashed and I lost it so I finished it up with Jasmine Cart.  I am by far never perfect and this could have had some more work but I do kinda like with the imperfections.

My DS’s teacher is expecting anyday now.  She is having a baby girl and she is going to name her Harper.  Pooh is her theme.  So I have made her a name frame for her room.  This is made with Pooh and Friends Cartridge.

January is a month that for me, I get back on my budget and the debt snowball starts again.  I am taking the Pantry/Freezer Challenge over at Life as Mom.  My goal is not to spend more than $30 on staples through the month.  Our freezers are over flowing and so are the pantries.  First week, CHECK.  It was a success.

Week of January 4th Menu Plan

Monday – Fried Chicken, Okra, Mixed Vegetables

Tuesday – Cowboy Beans, Cornbread

Wednesday – Leftovers

Thursday – Stuffed Green Pepper Balls from a meal frozen in the freezer from November, Mac and Cheese Green Beans, Cresent Rolls

Friday – Snacks

Spent $11 on Milk, OJ, Bread, Eggs

I now have no grocery store with in 20 minutes of work and over 45 minutes from my home.  YIKES!  Our tiny grocery store in our community closed its doors.  It is so hard to run to another town just to get the staples and not pick up other stuff as well.  So we have a milk delivery man that sets up from his truck once a week and sells!!!  This sure does help me stay out of those grocery stores, let me tell you. 

I have gotten my craft vibe back so look for some crafty type posts too in the future.  My goal is at least one per week.  Well, we’ll see.   😉

Our January and February is full of Birthdays and baby showers this year!  I am off to a busy, busy month.
