Mother's Day Printable in a Distressed Frame

So what better way to express our love for our Mother's then a printable for her to enjoy.  And how about making a frame to go with it too.

  Mother's Day Printable in a Distressed Frame 

While cleaning out my office closet a few months ago, I came across a 5 x 7 inch craft frame that would be perfect for this.  Don't you just love finding treasures you didn't know you had? First I searched through my craft paint and decided on cranberry.  Its so bright and cheery.  I then looked in the garage for some black spray paint and found a can of dark primer with just a little bit in it.  Perfect.  Use it up and another item out of the garage.

Ham & Egg Salad Sandwich

It's after Easter and what shall we all do with all those hard boiled eggs?  Make a Ham & Egg Salad Sandwich!  Such a staple in so many homes and loved by many.  This sandwich was so good with some of my fresh lettuce from the garden.


 The hard work is done with the hard boiled eggs and the ham is already cooked.  So just a bit of chopping of the eggs, ham and onions and add a few other ingredients and you now have a yummy lunch.  I do like mine a bit chunky and sometimes I will try a different mustard for a bit of flavor.  You could also put this in a food processor and make a creamier version of this recipe to serve on crackers.  I have also used light mayo if you are watching your fat content.  

Ham & Egg Salad Sandwich
  • 6 hard boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1/2 cup or more of ham, chopped
  • 1 small rib of celery, finely diced
  • 1/4 cup of onion, finely diced
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 tablespoon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon pickle relish (dill or sweet)
  • salt and pepper to taste
Chop eggs, ham, celery and onion in your preferred size.  Add mayo, mustard of your choice, relish and add salt and pepper to taste.  Mix together and chill.

Don Allred Insurance

I am always worried if my homeowners insurance will take care of things if we are hit by all the water, wind or tornado. I was reading the other day where some one's car was destroyed by a tornado and their car insurance wouldn't pay because it was an act of God.

These bring up interesting questions. If you live in North Carolina and in need of insurance be sure to call Don Allred Insurance of Burlington NC and let them help you find the best choice for my car and home,

Having a home or a car has its challenges, but keeping up with the latest insurance quotes will save me money in the long run.

Mason Jar Sewing Kit

How many of you have at least one mason jar sitting in your home?

If you are like me, I have many.  I receive gifts made with mason jars and I love giving gifts made with them. 

I was trolling Pinterest the other day and came up on an adorable craft to do with a mason jar.

Is this not adorable?  A personal and easy to store Mason Jar Sewing Kit.   This would make such a great gift for a new bride.  Mending kits is the last thing a new bride thinks about having in her new home, until she really needs a needle and thread. The link above will show you how to make this sewing kit.  Really easy.



Professional Printing Services

Since I have my own business, I am constantly having business cards, address labels, post cards and posters printed. Even the magnet we have on the side of our car.

One of the printing services I use for my post cards is I love what they have to offer and their prices are best and can't be beat. Since I live where people always have something to drink in their hand, I have thought about getting custom koozies made for our business. Great way to remind people of our business.

The website is easy to use and before you know it, you will have a great way to advertise your company.
