A Beautiful Day For A Picnic Date

One morning I decided to make a picnic and fruit bouquet for CP (my fiance). I took a blanket, made a veggie/cheese plate and this fruit bouquet and took it out to a empty field that overlooked the country. It was amazing! . It was so simple, I just stuck a cabbage inside the container, used some cookie cutters for the flower shapes of the pineapple and then I just put the rest of the fruit onto the skewers. (Also, I added some candy for him at the base)

It’s not my best bouquet because I got pretty fatigued.  Of course, he loved it though!


A Cupcake A Day Keeps The Doctor Away

(….perhaps in my dreams but those are some yummy dreams!)

My oldest sister and I took a cupcake decorating class. She is really into decorating cakes, that is her hobby. I thought it would be fun. These are my cupcakes I decorated! I was pretty proud of myself.


Once Upon A Time, My Fiance Wanted A Tattoo

My fiance has always wanted a tattoo of a superman symbol with a C in it (for his name). Well, that’s not really my thing. That is why he waited, to make sure it was ok with his future wife (lucky me!)I don’t want to be 80 years old with a loose, discolored tattoo. However, he really loved this design, so I decided to get him his “tattoo” for Christmas one year.

So, what do you think? He absolutely loved it! It’s a giant comforter/quilt/blanket. (Sorry for the bad cell phone picture)


My first post!

Hi! I’m excited to start blogging about some of my crafts, home remedies and other misc. home ideas. A little about me… My name is Kortni and I’m 25.  I am engaged to the most wonderful man in the world. I love life! And kids. They sure can say funny things. I am an auntie and can’t wait to have my own. I am currently on a liver transplant list and there are days that I can barely get out of bed. That is where my craftiness comes into play. I know that God is going to heal me! It’s exciting and I am determined. You can check out more about my story at

I have decided to name this blog doodle @ home because when I was little I couldn’t say Kortni and somehow it came out kocki which somehow turned into cock a doodle do. Don’t ask me! 🙂 I have a fun and crazy family. So growing up my family called me doodle. I just figured it was fun and quirky name, besides I like the “@” symbol. I’m quite random and have learned to enjoy the things I did as a child because well, sickness can be rough. Now that you know a little about me and blog… I guess it is time to start catching up on old projects and getting them blogged!

I pray that God would bless you on this glorious day and don’t ever forget to enjoy the little things!
