more beads to clean up & a recipe

Last night while sitting on the couch with Collin beading, I managed to knock over another vial of beads! DAMN!! This time it was a combination of me being tired and a lack of hands. Collin just kept saying "Poor Baby!" but he did nothing to help me pick up the beads! LOL (typical man!) I thought "I'll just sweep them up like last time. It won't be so bad... I swept the floor yesterday!"
I was way wrong on that last account!
I think my floor creates dirt.
I managed to collect just as much dirt and other crap (you don't want to know!) in the dust pan as I had the day before. Unfortunately these beads were bronze colored size 8 seed beads... which made them a bit more tricky to collect. I think I managed to find at least half of the ones I spilt.

(I can't wait for the day I move my couch!
...The treasures I will find under there!)


I've been asked by my sisters neighbor and best friend to partake in a "Recipe Exchange"... The theme for this week is "Holiday Treats". (I'm sure you all know how good of a baker I am, but for those of you that forgot, click here to see my botch job at making "Almond Toffee" last year... It turned out more like an Almond brick! lol)

This recipe I haven't tried yet but seems so simple and so tasty!

Rolo Pecan Candies (original source)
2 bags rolos
1 bag mini pretzels

bag of pecans

Preheat oven to 250oF degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil. Spread pretzels over baking sheet in one even layer. Add one rolo to each mini pretzel. Bake for 4 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately add a pecan to the top of the rolo, squishing down. Let cool for a few minutes, then transfer baking sheet to fridge to chill for 10 minutes. Remove and store in a sealed container or EAT them NOW! LOL
