Thursday Chat – Quilt Block Poll, Paper Beads, Heading to Memphis Today!


Happy Thursday!

I think it stopped raining.  I think it rained for 4 days.  I’m heading to the airport soon, so glad it stopped for now.  I just hope so much that it’s not killer hot and humid in Memphis. I know it will be, at least to me.  Just anxious to be there already!

Yesterday, I was able to upload two quickie videos.  First, I gave you a Sneak Peek of my Paper Beads that will be on ebay starting May 1st.  Then I put up the new Quilt Block Party Poll and I’d love it if you would head on over and vote for your favorite block in batch 11 thru 15. Thanks!

Now I must get ready to hit the road!  I will be working a little bit from Memphis.  And Skylar and I will be doing a few videos together, I’m sure.  It’s all up to her.  I don’t really care what we do together as long as we are together. But I can bet crafting will be involved. lol

Have a great Thursday!

3 Ingredient Banana Bread Cookies Recipe – Super Easy!

3 Ingredient Banana Bread Cookies Recipe

IMPORTANT: Please remember that I don’t eat this stuff so I did not test this recipe. I’m just posting so you can try it if you want to.  I’m not the carb police!  I don’t want to tell you how to eat any more than I want you to tell me how to eat. We all have the wonderful right to do as we please. You know what I mean, jelly bean?


1 box (15.25 oz) yellow cake mix or spice cake mix
2 very ripe bananas
1 can (16 oz) vanilla frosting
Optional: dried bananas for garnish

Darlene’s Tips:  You could add a drop of food coloring to the frosting or even try a different flavor of frosting. Cream cheese frosting would be great, especially if you opt for the spice cake mix!


Step 1:  Preheat oven to 350°F. In a stand mixer or large bowl, beat together the cake mix, bananas, and 1 tablespoon of the vanilla frosting until well mixed.

Step 2:  Spoon batter by tablespoonfuls onto a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in preheated oven for 8-12 minutes, or just until the cookies set. Cool slightly before removing from baking sheet and transferring to cooling rack.

Step 3:  Spoon frosting into a plastic zip-top bag. Microwave for 10-15 seconds, just enough to soften the frosting, then snip a small corner from the frosting bag and drizzle over cooled cookies.

Wednesday Chat – Quilt Block Party, More Rain, Lazy Day Today


Happy hump day everyone!

I think it has rained 3 days in a row. How totally cool is that?  Totes cool!  Just nature’s way of getting the soil ready for all the gardens soon to come.  I have no clue what I’m saying. lol  It’s raining. That’s all I know.

I leave for Memphis tomorrow.  I wish my flight was a bit earlier. Not 5:00am early.  Been there, done that!  But my flight is only at 5:00pm and a bit earlier would have been nice. I’ll just be fussing around all day waiting for the time to come.  Who knows, maybe I’ll record and upload a video while waiting. I’ve very good at working until the last possible moment. lol

Yesterday, I knocked out a quilt block for the Quilt Block Party!  And when I say knocked out, I mean it still took me over 3 hours from the time I started until it was published on youtube. And that does not include my down time, like lunch, running to the store, and whatever.  I might attempt another one today. Might not.

Ouch!  Just totally burned my entire mouth on hot water. OUCH!!!

Have a great Wednesday!
Darlene xoxo
