Quick Note

Dear All,

In case you haven’t noticed, there has been a lack of posting this week ūüė¶ ¬†I¬†intended on letting you know this prior to the holidays but … It’s the holidays… and since life is busy/crazy atm and my brain is a bit scrammbled – I’m taking some time to enjoy the holiday craze and put my head back on straight.

CHG will be back up and running come the first of the year ūüôā

See you then!


What is an “Assault Rifle”

Ran across this recently… As a gal that knows little about guns I found this video informative. ¬†Though it’s really just making a clear distinction between what an automatic and semi-automatic is; it also shows how weapons are clearly miss-represented through the media and¬†layman’s¬†uninformed perspective.

Personalized Kitchen Aid Mixers

Ok – soooo I MAY have a bit of love for my KitchenAid. ¬†It was the one thing I HAD to have after we got married because it’s the thing I make all my cakes, cookies, and goodies with… So, when I ran across this page on a friends Facebook feed I HAD to take a look!

Un Amore Custom Designs has some¬†truly¬†magnificent¬†looking mixers and I am seriously considering sending them our mixer JUST so I can have a piece of customized art in my kitchen (plus… come on… it looks GREAT!)

Personalized Christmas Stockings

I attempted making personalized stockings the Martha Stewart way (adding my own crazy flair and inspiration) and spent plenty of money on fabrics and photocopies of templates several years ago… you know what? ¬†I STILL haven’t gotten around to it BUT there is another way!

Try using burlap, red yarn, ribbons and bells; or felt and assorted decorations! ¬†Use some simple materials and a little time and you’ll find¬†yourself with personalized stockings for the family/friends that are inexpensive and treasured by all.

Here is a site with different stocking ideas and tutorials…
