1. Plastic Canvas Kissies
Plastic Canvas Kissies
Plastic canvas kissie ornaments with a Hershey Kiss in it's mouth used to be popular back in the 80's.

3. Spool Knitting
Spool Knitting
One of the first crafts that I remember doing as a child was spool knitting. I would make all kinds of long strings. I think I remember making rugs for my dolls and pot holders for my mom.

5. Halloween Jello Shots
Halloween Jello Shots
Jello shots are made with gelatin, water, and liquor. The liquor (vodka, rum or tequila) replaces some of the water or fruit juice that would usually be used to make the gelatin.

6. Rick's Beading Loom
Rick's Beading Loom
I have been interested in bead looming but it intimidated me. I have bought several looms but never did get the nerve to try them. I was afraid I would warp them wrong. Then I was further intimidated because I didn't know what to do with all the warp threads that were left over. I had read about...

7. Crockpot Chicken And Dumplings For Two
Crockpot Chicken And Dumplings For Two
So, you only need to cook enough for one or two. Before you start your cooking, you need to decide whether you want just enough for this meal or enough for you to freeze for another meal. Personally, if I have the space in my freezer, I would make enough to freeze. Photo credit: Koko's Corner Bl...

Grandma Marilyn Coming Of Age
Usually at the age of 18 a young girl is getting ready to graduate from high school, get their own place (if they aren't going to college and staying with their parents for a while longer), and going out and conquering the world. Not so with Grandma Marilyn. She had always been a shy and backwar...

13. Cooking for Two Cookbook
Cooking for Two Cookbook
I had been used to cooking for 4-5 people ever since I can remember. It was hard for me to start cooking for just two when the "empty nest" syndrome hit. I always had too much food. I had been raised to believe too much food is better than too little. I could only serve leftovers so much before h...

15. Beading and Beadwork with Crafty Grandma
Beading and Beadwork with Crafty Grandma
You had better watch out before you start reading this lens....Beading can be addictive. Don't believe it? I am a true example of it. I don't know why I did not become addicted back in the 80's when I first started beading, but I sure did starting in 2005. It is a wonderful addiction though. I ca...

Nora Roberts Book Reviews
Nora Roberts is one of my most favorite historical romance writers. I love reading her books they keep you on your toes trying to figure out who did what. You usually don't figure out who did it and why until you get to to the end of the book. She is the bestselling American author of over 209 ro...

Fudge is for any time of the year. It doesn't necessarily have to be chocolate fudge. I love a variety of homemade fudge. When I was a child, my mother used to make Penuche Fudge and have it ready for my brothers and I as a treat when we came home from school (see below). I used to make a microw...
