Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Linking up with Aimee over at AJCrazies

I made caramel popcorn for snack at church last night.  It'd kinda late for Baker's Review Wednesday, but I'm going to do it anyway.  I normally make this with margarine but I made it with butter this time and liked it way better, plus, they seemed not so chewy.

Here's the recipe:

4 qts. popped popcorn
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp. baking soda

Put popcorn in paper grocery bag.  In microwaveable bowl, mix butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and salt.  Boil for 3 minutes, stirring every minute.  Add baking soda; stir.  Pour caramel mixture over popcorn. Close up bag and shake hard.  Microwave for 1.5 minutes.  Shake again.  Cook for 30 seconds longer.

We only left a little bit at home and that was definitely fought over!!!   

Love and God's Peace,

Table Centerpiece and Birthday

Rachel and Aimee made the centerpieces at school.  Mom got roses for her birthday.  Altogether it made a beautiful centerpiece for our kitchen (dining) table.  I love the Christmas look to it.

Here's Mom with her Birthday Cupcake and Roses.  Her birthday was on the 18th of December.
Love and God's Peace,

Blog Craft Sale

We had tables at a couple bazaars and still have things left, so I decided to offer them to you on here!

I have a bunch of photos here.  Please respond if you want to buy anything!  A few of the things you've probably already seen if you follow our blog.  Most of it is recently made.

First off I have a bunch of carseat toys.  They hang from the carseat handle.  They are $7.50 each.

Next are my little bags.  These would work great for a little cosmetic bag, a bag for little things in your purse, a bag for a little girl to keep her important stuff in, etc.!!!!  1-3 are 9" across the top and 6" tall - $9 each.  4-8 are 7" across the top and 4" tall - $8 each.

My burlap pillows have their sizes shown.  They are all $8 each except for the Mr. & Mrs. set, which is $17.

Then comes these cute little noteboxes.  The first one shows how they open up - and there is a place you can put a photo in it.  They have a stack of paper about 1" tall in it.  These are $4.75 each.

 These are Tara's notebooks - composition size.  They are $5 each.

 Now a last few odds and ends.  These 2 Christmasy aprons do not seem to want to leave my house, but I want them to go, so I'm slashing their price in half - down to $7.50 each!!

Last, but not least, is this wondrously soft Minky blanket.  It is $18.  My purple circle quilt is $85.  More pictures of it can be seen here.

I would love to hear from you if you're interested in anything.  Shipping charges will be additional.  I can let you know a price for anything you want.  I think Aimee at AJCrazies will be having a sale soon, too!

While I was cleaning the junk drawer I realized we had a lot of colored pencils.  It's amazing how many different colors and sizes there can be.

The bottom right shows what it looked like when it was done:)
