Busy, busy, busy!

Hello! It has been three weeks since my last post. I guess that means I have been busy! I have acuteally finished an order that I got. I have also still been working on items for my craft show coming up in San Pablo, CA on November 11th. I have been making lots of post-it note holders, handmade greeting cards, and brag books. You can check out our website for these items too!

I haven't just been crafting though. I have been homeschooling, babysitting two little ones, taking care of my home and family, singing on the church worship team, visiting a pumpkin farm, and getting ready for interviews for our foster/adopt licensing. Yes, we are planning on adopting a baby girl. We have our last interview...a home study on November 30, so we have LOTS to do before then.

I wanted to share with you a yummy recipe that I will be making up to sell at the craft show:

Peanut Butter Popcorn

Pop a pot of popcorn (finished amount should equal about 6-8 cups). Put popcorn in a large bowl. Put 1/2 cup of peanut butter, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1/2 cup light Karo syrup in a small pot and mix well, while heating up on medium heat. Stir constantly while heating until it comes to a boil. Let it boil for a couple of minutes, being careful to stir at all times. Pour over popcorn and mix in well.

Just be careful! It's VERY addicting!!!

Well, that's it for today. Have a blessed day!

Christmas Craft Shows

It is almost that time again...time when many are gearing up for their Thanksgiving and Christmas Craft shows. I would love to know what YOU do at your craft show. I would love to see pictures. I am doing a craft show this year, albeit a small one at my mother in law's church. I would love to some day be able to do a BIG craft show, like the Christmas Craft Fair in Grass Valley, CA. We went there last year over the Thanksgiving weekend and REALLY enjoyed it! There were really some wonderful, quality crafts there. And the setup was amazing. It was on a county fairgrounds with gorgeous, tall pine trees all over, and a fine wintery mist going on. They had a bonfire, carolers, food vendors, and about 5 buildings full of crafters!!! One of these days.....

In the meantime, above are some pictures of what I am selling in my craft show. Send your pictures or ideas, and we will post them!

Have a blessed day!

Welcome to Ambrosia Delights!

This blog is for people who are into crafts. I personally think that I have adult ADD when it comes to crafts, so I do a lot of different things. I love to sew and have been sewing since I was about 6 years old. My mom thought it was a great thing to teach me, as she has also been sewing from a very young age. I'm so grateful that she did teach me. I know in this day, it's not so common for a young girl to learn how to sew. Here you can see an example of what I make. I enjoy making boutique children's clothing that are one of a kind. I love the idea of individuality in a child (and in an adult too of course), so I love creating clothing for children that will emphasize that individuality. I rarely make two of one thing, but I do on occasion.

I also enjoy scrapbooking, making jewelry, counted cross-stitch, and cardmaking. I have also done some tole painting and stamping, as well as crocheting, and I tried my hand(s) at knitting, but that didn't work so well. I did manage to finish a knitted scarf, so I am proud of myself that I followed through! There are a few other areas that I am interested in checking out. But I think for my husband's sanity, and our space and time restraints, I won't just now.

With this blog, I would like to showcase other crafters' work as well as my own. If you are a crafter and would love to show off what you do, please write me. If you are good at writing out instructions for your project, we welcome that!!! We will have links for great crafting sites, as well as LOTS of great ideas! So please write and share what you do. We will also have lots of yummy recipes listed on this blog, so if you have a favorite recipe (with or without a photo), send it in! We would love to see it.

I must go craft, so I must leave the blogging for another time or day. I have some orders to work on. Have a blessed day!!
