I just wanted to post a little reminder about book club tonight. We'll be meeting at Deb Kirkham's house at 8:00pm. The book is called "Faith among Shadows," but even if you haven't read it feel free to come out and visit with us. We hope to see you there. If you don't know where Deb lives just leave a comment and I will call you with it as I don't want to post it on an open invitation blog. Have a great day!

I have to say, don't let the photos deceive you...we are not making a potty! This is called an oven bucket. It's purpose is to be used in emergency situations. If you remember last year at Super Saturday we made Wonder Boxes, these are a similar idea. The main difference being that wonder boxes need outside heat source and these supply the heat source. The oven in a bucket is not intended to be used for foods that just need to be heated (soup, pasta, oatmeal etc.). The oven in a bucket retains its heat for several hours and is best to be used when making things like beans that need to be cooked for a long time in order to be eaten.
This item takes at least an hour to make so please make sure you plan for that so that you can complete all you projects in the given time. Also the bucket does not include the denatured alcohol or the pot that you will need to cook with.
Canning with #10 Cans $1.20
Bring either food storage items from home to be put in cans or else creative gifts. I will post more on this a little later in the week.

Please note: Each dish takes at least a half an hour to do plus drying time (another half hour or more). Also the chemical that is used is quite harsh, and will need to be applied outside.
Family Blocks $4
Family Blocks $4
This craft is fairly simple and so cute. The front of the blocks are covered with different scrapbook papers and then a vinyl letter.
There will be scrapbook paper available there for you to use. But if you have a specific style or color that you would like then please feel free to bring your own.
(Sorry the photo is on its side, I'm new at this and don't know how to change it)
