Favorite Finds for the 18th Week of 2010

I have found some really great things to share this week, I hope you enjoy reading them. I'm hoping to post some projects I've been working on over the weekend...but no promises.

My Dream Craft Room
I had to share one of my newest friend Jana Eubank's craft space with everyone...you see if I were to die this would be my heaven!! Jana is an amazing designer and I have been stalking her ever since I happened upon some darling layouts she created. Thankful she doesn't think I'm completely crazy and we've had the opportunity to work on some projects together. Seriously you should follow her blog...she rocks. Now if you want to see more pictures of this beautiful space, click through to her blog!! Maybe one day Jana will let me visit heaven for a bit (wink)!

Baked Chicken Egg Roll Recipe
My husband loves egg rolls but I don't like making them...that is until I found this recipe. I loved that they're baked and only 2 pts for those of you counting points. Since I have so much listed on my blog this time I'm not going to post the recipe...but you can click over to LaaLosh's Health Food website and print it off from there. By the way, this is a wonderful website for good eats!

No Sew Fabric Flower Tutorial
The key here is the fact that this darling flower is a "no sew" project...love no sew and love how darling this is on her shoes. Check out the Bird Crafts blog to find out how she created these!

Tissue Paper Flower Tutorial
What a fun idea to die cut "tissue paper"...loved this tutorial I found over at Split Coast Stampers website.

Malted Milk Ball Cupcakes
Here's a fun recipe that I plan on trying this weekend...what do you think? I found it on a cute blog called Cakes & Kids.

Ingredients
1 box of yellow cake mix
4 tablespoons of Ovaltine malt powder
2 cups of malted milk balls, such as Whoppers, finely chopped
24 whole malted milk balls

Directions
Make the yellow cake mix up according to the directions on the box. Then thoroughly stir in the malt powder and 1 cup of the chopped malted milk balls. Put into your cupcake liners and bake according to the directions on the cake box until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Beat the remaining chopped malted milk balls into your chosen frosting (a vanilla buttercream will work well here). Once cool, frost your cupcakes and then top each one with a whole malted milk ball.

Alien Sewing Project
I'm always on the look out for cute projects that are simple enough my daughter would enjoy sewing them on her own and these jumped out at me today when I was doing a little blog hopping!! The Lemon Squeezy blog shows you how to create them from start to finish...so cute!

Homemade Edible Play Dough
I thought this was fun and wished I'd know about this stuff when my kids were little...personally I hate peanut butter but my kids like it. I thought I'd share this blog post and recipe with you!


French Necklace Tutorial
You know these flowers are my obsession and anything this yummy had to be shared on my blog. This darling gal from France...living in Utah blogged about this on her blog and what a cute blog it is!!
