What to do with a broken frame.

I had bought this frame at Micheals got it on sale for a great deal and I was so excited. I was going to make my menu board from it. But the little bugger fell on the floor and the glass broke. The frame broke too but I did manage to glue gun it back together. I let it sit for ages before I could figure out what to do with it. Then I found some pretty 12 x 12 paper and slipped it in. Then got out my Cricut and printed out our names. 
I think it turned out very pretty and I didn't waste a frame. :)

Old frame new idea

My friend asked me if I wanted some old frames of hers that had no glass. UMMM Hello! Of course.:)
She had no idea how fabulous they were. I told her after I had them at home. hee hee
Anyway, this is what I did with one oft hem. This is the frame as she gave it to me.
 I didn't have to paint or sand. How cool is that? Easy Peasy.
I just threw it up there with an M I got at Micheals. The small frame I painted and
shantied it up with some ink on the edges and using my handy dandy Cricut
cut out the word family. I love it. Simple but pretty.
My two turkeys. What age is it when they stop doing the bunny ears? ;)

Chair redo

Look how pretty that is.
My hubby's mom gave me this chair over 15 years ago. It was so lovely, but it looked
bad, the paint was chipped, the fabric worn. So, I saw over at Messy Mimi where she
had similar chairs and she redid them and that was all the inspiration I needed.
I forgot to take a pic with the old cushion in. But here it is.
I bought some pretty new material and being lazy and not really having any idea of how
to actually do anything properly. :) I simply put the material on the bottom, flipped it over and
staple gunned the little bugger down. Easy peasy. :)
Then I just spray painted the chair with white Krylon spray paint. (my best friend)
I love it. I think it turned out so pretty.

BBQ nachos

Sorry for the crappy pictures. I think my camera is dying. Plus this was at dusk so the light was fading.
But I started off with one of those cedar planks for the bbq. It says to soak it in water anywhere from 20 min to 4 hrs. Since I am not fond of fires I soaked the little bugger for about three hours. :)
This was the first time that I cooked with one of these and I have to say I liked it.
Plus nothing to clean up. :) I like that.
I just layered what ever ingredients I had on hand. Salsa, onions, chicken, peppers and cheese.

See crappy pics, but the end result was super, super yummy. Easy too and mess free.
I just cooked it till the cheese melted.
