Artichoke Chicken and Roasted Potatoes

Tonight I made my first whole dinner at home. Brandon has done the cooking at night and I usually do breakfast, but this time it was my turn! 

I made Artichoke Chicken and Roasted Potatoes! It tasted a lot better than the picture looks...and don't worry, I had 2 pieces of chicken cuz they are so tiny. haha

Brandon loved it so we will definitely be having this again! :)

Scentsy -- Independent Consultant!

So like I mentioned in my first blog, I am currently looking for a job. Well, I decided to become an Independent Consultant for Scentsy to try to make a little extra money (pay for bills!) for our family. :)

I have a:
Just Google ADAILYSCENT and I'm sure something of mine will come up! 

I hope if you ever need any candles that you will think of me because it is an awesome invention. A Ceramic Warmer, a chunk of wax, plug it in and you're all set! It's safe and you don't have to worry about running out quickly because you can reuse the wax! :)

Contact me at any time if you want to Host a Party, Buy a Product, or Join my Team! :)

Sewing Machine Case

I bought myself a sewing machine case today. It is pretty awesome. I went to Joann's to look for fabric to make holiday blankets but they didn't have any cute stuff so I just browsed the store.

I wanted a case, but I was just thinking the normal plastic case would do -- until I saw this:

It's awesome right? The coolest thing, it matches perfectly with our bedspread (kinda weird, huh?). It is so much cooler than the plastic white ones.

This one has:

  • wheels
  • a handle
  • pretty fabric design
  • storage
  • (not has) is AMAZING!

I'm glad I went to Joann's today because this was on sale! So if you want to get yourself one of these (this was the only design I saw) then head on over to your local JoAnn's!  It was on sale from $79.99 to $39.99! When you can buy a plastic one -- that doesn't roll -- for $25-$35.

And VOILA -- It fits perfectly! :)

The Sewing Machine

I have been searching for a new job and in the meantime, I taught myself how to sew.

My mom gave me a sewing machine for Christmas 2010 and I just opened it September 8, 2011. Yeeeaaaahhh, pretty bad. It took me FOREVER to figure out how to thread the darn thing, but once I did that, I was ready to go!  I didn't have any problems, except keeping the lines straight. :-/

Singer Curvy:

Many of you know, but, I just got married (July 16, 2011) and we had a Mad Hatter Bridal Shower for me, so since we had some extra crazy fabric from the tablecloths I decided to use that as my "scratch paper."

I started out making squares, and so I have called my creations a pot holder and coasters. :)

Hopefully within the coming days/weeks/months/years, I will be better at sewing, but as of now,I am pretty impressed with myself! 

Boring Days -- Becoming Creative

Hello Everyone!

So...I've started about 4 blogs in my day, but have not kept up with any of them. This blog is titled Creatively Uncreative, because I feel like I have so many ideas and want to do so many things with crafts and stuff, but I just can't seem to get the creativity part down.

Here is my journey in being Creatively Uncreative :)
