Buckeye Biscuits and Gravy

We've had a few warm days here in good ol' southern Utah, which has gotten me plenty excited for spring to be on it's way! So I'm getting all the yummy stick-to-your-ribs cold-weather kind of meals made now before we switch to salads and sandwiches to avoid turning on the stove!
This meal has been a favorite of mine for year and years! My mom has made it for as long as I can remember and it never gets old! It reminds me of home!
 
serves 4 (with leftovers)
 
4 English muffins
4 TBS butter or margarine
3 TBS flour
3 cups milk
1 cup frozen sweet corn
1 5oz can of ham (or 1 cup chopped ham)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
 
In a large skillet melt butter and add flour. Cook together for a few minutes to cook out the flour taste. Slowly, while whisking, add milk. Whisk until all the lumps are gone, and cook on Medium until sauce becomes thick. Add corn and ham and simmer until heated through. Toast your english muffins (you can also just use bread) and top with gravy and cheese.

DIY Felt Heart Garland

I've had my Valentines decor up for some time now actually! In fact, the day after I took down Christmas I pulled it all out!
If you are on Pinterest, chances are, you've seen this garland (or one like it) all over the place! They've become quite popular! And for a good reason, they are very easy to make!
Step 1. Choose your felt. Now, lets talk felt for a second... if you were to ask me which felt to buy a month ago, I would of told you to just go pick up the cheap stuff from walmart and you'd be fine. I will not tell you that now however. Wool felt people. WOOL. Yes, its a tad more pricey, but if you can find it, it's softer, its not so puffy, it cuts a million times easier and it doesn't fray. I got mine at Joannes next to the regular bulk felt. I think I payed like $1 for 1/8 yard.
Anyways, so as you can see, I chose red, grey and white.
Pin your fabric over about an inch and a half (NOT exact, just guessing) and go ahead and cut hearts to your hearts content!  (pun intended)
I think I cut like 25 in all or something.
 Once you have all your hearts cut, bust out your sewing machine. Or, if you are like me and have been doing countless baby girl projects, it will already be set up on your kitchen table :)
 
 Take your first heart, and sew a straight line down the center, then, when you are almost to the edge, grab your next heart and start feeding it through immediately behind it. It take a little pushing, and once in awhile I had to lift the machine foot to get it under there, but it's really quite simple after you get the hang of it!
Then just repeat with all your hearts!
