Tommy's favorite meatballs

I managed to get Tommy's favorite meatballs ready and into the crockpot for dinner tonight. My son Tommy loves these so it'll be a nice treat for him tonight.

Tommy' Favorite Meatballs
1 pkg jimmy dean sausage (HOT)
1.5 lbs ground beef
4 slices of bread dried and crumbled
Mix that well and form into meatballs. Pop them in the crockpot and pour in 1 large can of tomato sauce.
Finish off the sauce with a couple tablespoons of finely chopped onions, a sprinkle of oregano, a sprinkle of garlic and salt and pepper to taste.

I cook them on the crockpot all day and serve over rotelle for an quick easy dinner.

I want to wear this on my next trip

I love the designs put together by Sue Bradbury at Ellaina Boutique. She has a great line of beautiful clothing and handbags. Check out her store at

In my search for a new laptop case...I stumbled onto this great shop. I love her bags! check out her store at She designs handbags that are fresh and original. She uses nickel hardware to add just a punch of hardness and edge to the designs. I love her look!

With the new oranges that arrived

I'm just starting to add the new color chart to our listings on etsy but couldn't resist this photo. I LOVE the color!

It's almost the exact color of one of our new shades of orange.

Fed ex update

Checked the tracking AGAIN and my vinyl shipment is on route to the house as we speak. I'm out the door for work shortly but it will hopefully be on my porch when I get home tonight. If your waiting on a decal set in one of the new colors, know I will be getting those orders processed first thing when I get off work tonight. I hope to have all the orders placed on or before February 3 out in the morning mail tomorrow (feb. 5). Have a great day.

Believe in your Dreams!

My new mantra "nothing is impossible." I truly believe if you have a dream and work with all your heart, all things are possible.
