Crock Pot Chicken Soup


Nothing is better on a cold winters day than a warm bowl of homemade chicken soup. This recipe was very simple and we enjoyed lots of leftovers! You could even put individual servings into ziploc bags and freeze them for quick meals or when you are fighting cold and flu season and too sick to cook.

Ingredients:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast fillets
1 (48oz) box of chicken broth (or a couple cans)
4 cloves mince garlic
3 carrots
3 celery stalks
1 cup chopped onions
1/4- 1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
Salt and Pepper to taste

Directions:
1. Cut carrots, celery, onion and garlic (you could even do this the night before, put in a bag and refrigerate).
2. Put the chicken breasts on the bottom of the crock pot, fill crock pot 1/2 - 1/3 way with chicken broth.
3. Add the vegetables and seasonings.
4. Cook on low for 8-10 hours or high for 6-7. About an hour before the soup is done, remove chicken breasts and shred. Put back into pot and cook for remaining amount of time.

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

We like to add Matzo Balls to our soup. I use THIS easy boxed mix.


Enjoy!

Winter Friends Felt Keychains


Keychains, ornaments, stocking stuffers, nursery mobile and more! These little felt friends are very versatile and would make a great gift for the holidays! This winter set is my second set of keychains (the first set of Forest Friends can be found HERE) and includes a Christmas Tree, Snowman, Penguin and Mitten.

You will need to download this PDF template and use it to trace/cut out each piece from felt.

Get the Christmas Tree Template HERE.
Winter Felt Friends Template


 Be sure to cut two of each body part so you can lightly stuff it with poly-fil. I sewed the edges by hand using a tapestry needle and 2-ply yarn. The embellishments (eyes, nose, feet, etc.) are held in place with hot glue. The eyes and buttons were cut with a hole punch or a button was used. You can find a complete tutorial with pictures HERE.

Christmas tree could be just a plain pine tree or add some white felt and make it a snowy pine :)




Would you like to see more sets of Felt Friends? What animals/characters/objects would you like to see me make?!

Crocheted Winter Wreath


My winter/holiday decorations are slowing going up this week! First order of business was to take down my fall wreath and replace it with a winter wreath! I wanted to make another crocheted wreath and knew that the soft Loops & Threads yarn that I used for my crochet snowman hat would be perfect for my winter wonderland.

I used a 16 inch white styrofoam wreath, Loops & Threads Charisma yarn in white, and a size N crochet hook. 


I found a wonderful tutorial on how to crochet around a styrofoam wreath by Lisa at Good Knits. She provides step-by-step instructions with pictures that are easy to follow. I am very pleased with the result and it took less than hour to make! You can find the tutorial HERE.


To make the "Let it Snow" writing, I made multiple crocheted chains and cheated by using my hot glue gun to glue the chains on to form the letters. Sometimes you gotta take some short cuts to make things look the way you want :) I used Caron Simply Soft One Pound Yarn in Soft Sage.


I hung 3 crocheted snowflakes in the center of the wreath. The snowflakes are a very easy pattern by the talented Kadie at Seven Alive. I used Loops and Threads Impecabble yarn in white and a size F hook (because that is all I could find in my bedside table drawer). You can find the snowflake pattern HERE. I left a long tail at the end of the pattern and tied it to a strand of yarn on the back of the wreath.



I hope everyone is feeling the holiday spirit! I love this time of year :) Happy Holidays!

10 Airplane Travel Games for Kids


Following up on the popularity of my 10 Restaurant Waiting Games for Kids, I thought I would write about some ways we keep our boys occupied while on an airplane. I don't know anyone who doesn't absolutely dread the thought of flying with toddlers and preschoolers. Cramped quarters, long flight times and squirmy kids with short attention spans don't mix well. So here are a couple of ideas for games you can play to help distract your little ones and keep them occupied while you are flying the friendly skies. And just like my 10 Restaurant Waiting Games, these airplane games can all be played (mostly) with items found on the airplane. No need to take up precious carry-on bag space!

Of course we always bring the iPad loaded with their favorite shows or movies, their LeapFrog Leapster Explorer Learning Game System and Invisible Ink coloring book. But what about the times when you can't use your electronic devices? Those 20 minutes during take off and landing can seem like hours if you have a screaming, whiney child.

1. I-Spy Passengers: The classic game of I-Spy but with the people around you. Choose a person within view of your seat and using the phrase “I spy with my little eye, someone ___” Provide a descriptive word about who you see and let your child guess who it is. Then let him/her pick someone and you try to guess!



2. Ice Cube Fishing: Who knew a small cup of ice and a straw could be so entertaining?! I noticed that the ice cubes on airplanes have a hole through the middle. So when your drink is gone, grab your straw and let your little one try and pick up the ice with the straw. This kept my 20 month old occupied for quite some time!



3. Sky Mall Toy Search: Sky Mall magazine is full of fun toys and gadgets and the magazine is free and available in the pocket in front of you. Ask your child to find different objects or toys in the magazine. They will be flipping pages for hours :)



4. Thumb Wars: This is a fun and classic game always has my boys giggling and laughing. Facing each other and using the same hand, grasp your fingers together leaving your thumbs sticking up. Chant "1, 2, 3, 4, I declare a thumb war!" and when you are ready say "Thumbs back, now attack!" The object is to get the opponent's thumb pinned down by your thumb.

5. Paper Toss (keep score on radio channels): Have you ever played the game paper toss on your smart phone? This is the real life version using crumpled up kleenex from the lavatory and an empty drink cup. Place the drink cup on the tray table in front of you, lean back and try and make a basket with your crumpled tissue paper. Move the cup in different spots and throw from different angles. Just make sure to keep the game from getting out of control.


And keep score with the numbers on the channel changer on your armrest!



6. Barf Bag Puppets: All you need is some crayons or markers and the barf bag from the pocket in front of you and you can create puppets! Some airlines (like Alaska Airlines) have small packs of crayons for kids if you ask.



7. Paper Towel Mask: Use those rough and thick paper towels from the lavatory to make funny face masks. Just poke holes through with your finger. I had my 1.5 year old giggling for a good 10 minutes during descent!



8. Food Play: If you have little ones, I am sure you have packed a large arsenal of snacks. Try to choose some snacks they can play with. Cheez-it now makes "Scrabble Junior" letter crackers that are great for working on letter recognition. Make words with them or try and find the whole alphabet. You an even "build" with these fun little squares.


Or how about Tic Tac Toe with mini Oreos and straws from the drink cart!


9. Rock, Paper, Scissors: This is another simple classic game that can't be forgotten! If you don't know how to play, I will let Wikipedia explain it to you. Click HERE for instructions.

10. The Alphabet Game: Look out the window (or around you) and starting with the letter "A" name something that starts with each letter of the Alphabet. For instance, A = airplane, B = backpack, C = clouds, etc.

I hope these ideas will help make your next flight a smoother one! Be sure to check out my 10 Restaurant Waiting Games for Kids for ideas to keep your kids occupied while waiting for your food to arrive when eating out.

Crochet Snowman Applique Pattern


This cute little crochet snowman would make a perfect appliqué on a winter hat but also a wonderful ornament, magnet, or pin. The appliqué measures approx. 3" x 2".

I hope everyone is looking forward to the winter season as much as I am! Happy Holidays!

Size H hook for Body
Size F hook for the rest of the pieces
Tapestry needle

Woman's Day Magazine Feature!


I am so excited to announce that I have been featured in the December 2012 issue of Woman's Day Magazine!! It was such an amazing experience and I would love to share a little bit about it with you :)

About 6 months ago, I received an e-mail from Woman's Day saying they had come across my DIY Gift Wrap Station (on Pinterest) and would love to feature it in their "Organize It" section of their December (holiday) issue. For those of you who are new to my blog, I made a Gift Wrap Station during one of the final rounds of a craft competition called One Crafty Contest. The craft contest was hosted by the fabulous Amy Latta of One Artsy Mama. I owe a big THANK YOU to Amy because if it weren't for her contest, I may have never made this gift wrap station!


With butterflies in my stomach, I immediately wrote Woman's Day back with a big YES, of course I would love to be featured in your magazine!! The e-mail was followed up by a several phone conversations where I was interviewed and then was told a photographer and hair/make-up artist would be coming to my house to take pictures of me and my gift wrap station. WHAT?! OMG! All of this for little old me? I seriously had to pinch myself :) Of course I was on cloud nine on photoshoot day. I had the pleasure of working with a wonderful photographer, Edmund Barr of Edmund Barr Photography and his crew and the most amazing hair and make-up artist, Celena Rubin of Art of Makeup. I actually ended up using Celena a second time because I liked her so much! And of course the creative directors and editors at Woman's Day magazine were wonderful as well. I feel so grateful to them and am blessed to have had this opportunity!

I received a copy of the magazine about a week before it hit stores. I held my breathe as I opened it up and my jaw dropped when I saw that I had a huge picture in the table of contents! EEEK! And then I was absolutely stunned to see that I was not only on page 54, but also on page 58, and 59! When I started this blog I never imagined that I would make it into a nationally syndicated magazine! Although I did not get paid to be in the magazine, nor do I get paid for blogging, I am so thankful for all the wonderful people and experiences that have come my way since I started Repeat Crafter Me just over a year ago :)

Crochet Sock Monkey Hat Pattern


You guys requested it and I am delivering! I've had a lot of e-mails asking for a sock monkey hat pattern and at first I hesitated because I always felt they were a little creepy looking, but I found a way to make my monkeys friendlier; with a cute little smile! :) I hope you enjoy the pattern!

Materials:
- Yarn:
White: Loops & Threads™ Impeccable™
Red: Vanna's Choice - Cranberry
Grey: Vanna's Choice - Grey Marble
- Size H (5.0mm) hook
- Tapestry Needle
- Two medium size buttons for eyes

This picture doesn't do the colors justice, but I found that Vanna's Choice "Barley", and 
Loops & Threads™ Impeccable™ Yarn in "Aran" (cream color) is a better match to an actually sock monkey. I am sending this set to a professional photographer and will update this photo to show the better color match after the photoshoot.



Abbreviations:
st = stitch
ch = chain
sl st = slip stitch
SC = Single Crochet
DC = Double Crochet

Be sure to follow these directions when crocheting your hat:
Always start your rounds in the same stitch as your chain.
Always join your rounds to the first DC, NOT the chain.
Your last stitch should be in the stitch before your chain.
