Once the wall is dry, you need to mark it out with a pencil depending on what size you want your bricks to be. Once the entire wall is marked, you then can string your tape. I used 3/8".

This is my favorite cookie of all time! But why do I only make them at Christmas? I need to remember to make them throughout the year. They are super good. Zach helped me make them, he rolled them in the cinnamon sugar!
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups white sugar
2 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
In a large bowl, mix together the shortening and 1 1/2 cups of white sugar until smooth. Stir in the eggs one at a time, blending well after each. Combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; stir into the batter until blended.
Roll the dough into balls the size of small walnuts. Roll in a mixture of 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake in the preheated oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned, but still soft.

I am very happily married to a very wonderful man, he is the most patient, handy, & handsome man ever! He understands my need for junking, and is truly interested in the things I like to do! We have a great time together no matter what we do! We also have 3 wonderful boys, ages 15, 6 & 5. They keep us very busy, they are all great kids and love to help mom with all of her projects!
I love to create! I can't say that I have 1 or even 2 specific hobbies, I like to do anything crafty, and am not afraid to try new things! I have a huge passion for decorating, and love to re-purpose
"junk" for my home! Lately I have been slightly obsessed with old doors and windows! They are all over my house!
I also like to scrapbook and make cards. And love to do all kinds of paper crafts!
Sewing has become another obsession lately! I have quite the collection of burlap bags from different coffee shops and I am constantly finding new things to make with them, be sure to check out my Etsy shop to see some of my items!
I am starting a photography business, and I truly enjoy taking pictures of almost anything! Nature, Kids, Weddings, yon name it! More info can be found on my Photography site!
And I also am a little in love with Keith Urban, hence the photo of me at the top! I have seen him in concert 7 times, met him twice, my girlfriends and i love to travel to see him play! He is amazing!
Well I think that is it! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
