DIY Fabric Wall Decal

Fabric Wall decals

I love the idea of wall decals, especially for those of us who live in an apartment and can’t do much to alter the walls, but they are usually really expensive! I love that someone created a way to make your own decals and you can make them any design you want and with whatever fabric you want! May need to give this one a try.

Whiskey Chocolate Cake in a Jar

Whiskey in a Jar Chocolate Cake (Flourless!)

Next Friday we’re having a small pot luck at work. Normally I do not participate in the work potlucks, something about not knowing whose house it came from and everyone grabbing at the food – it all just grosses me out! But, this one is just going to be with the small group of ladies who work in my area, so I’m actually participating. ANYWAYS – it was decided that I should make the dessert – this is what I am currently thinking about making. If you have any other suggestions, please send them my way!

Notebook Tee & Necklace Top Tee

Some time next week I will be making these, though both tees, for my favorite lil model :)

Individual Egg Breakfasts

Delish individual egg breakfasts

I had a craving for breakfast for dinner (Brinner) the other night and decided to give these a try. I made mine with leftover Easter ham, cheese and mushrooms. My ramekin was larger than the one in the original recipe so I used more eggs. It was very yummy, and an easy meal for one, I’ll definitely be making this again!

Until next week…

This past weekend was a full and fun-filled one – Friday was Brewers Opening Day and then Sunday was Easter! Here are some of the pics from this weekend; I’ll have more follow up posts for most of the things I’ve made – until then, enjoy the pics!!

OPENING DAY

Brats - before their beer bath!

Brewers Jello Shots

Of course, the nails had to match too!

Oh Miller Park, how I have missed you!

Happy Pinsday – 4/4/12

Happy April! I’ve been slacking on Easter projects, and crafts in general lately – not sure where my motivation and creativity has run off too… Hope to find it soon! In the meantime, here’s this week’s Pinsday!

Whoopie Pies

Friday is Opening Day – YAAAAAY!!! And I will be off tomorrow to get everything ready to go. Thinking about making homemade whoopie pies – with my own baseball themed twist, of course! I’ll be sure to share all my treats I make.

Bunny Ears Headband

I think this is really cute and could also be done as a barrette for a lil girl. Also, easy enough to make yourself!

Baby Giraffe

I leave you with this cute lil guy :)

Hope you all have a great Easter weekend. GO BREWERS!!!!!!

Until next week…

April – Calendar of the Month Club

I received April’s calendar in my email yesertday afternoon and went home and assembled it that night! This month’s is very easy to assemble, considering February’s and March’s. I, of course, love that the dragon is pink – and that they gave you an option to decorate your own egg instead of using theirs.

Here’s how mine turned out:


Hope you all have a great weekend :)

Happy Pinsday – 3/28/12

Owl Pillow Boxes

I think these are absolutely adorable! And since they are boxes would be a great idea for a little kids b-day party or just a fun way of wrapping a present. Downside – I have no idea what 1/2 of the tools are that they are talking about, since I don’t have any fancy paper cutting tools… I also don’t know why they are called pillow boxes… Whatever, they’re cute!

Swedish Chef Pops

A friend sent these to me and they immediately made me think of my co-worker (aka work wife) Lindsay – as she LOVES the Muppets and has recently been more obsessed with them since the movie has come out. They look fairly easy to make, too!

Silk Dyed Eggs

How pretty are these?! I think I may give these a try next week – looks pretty easy, all I would need to do is make a stop at Goodwill and pick up some ties!

Until next week…

Easter Egg Wreath

I needed an Easter wreath for my door and have been going back and forth between making one out of plastic eggs or Peeps. I decided to go with plastic eggs because they will last until next year, though Peeps tend to last forever…, and the plastic eggs were cheaper (got mine from the Dollar Tree) than Peeps. This wreath is VERY easy and it took me less than 2 hours to make.

Supplies:

  • plastic eggs (I used 4 bags of 18 eggs)
  • Easter grass
  • wreath (mine was 12 in.)
  • hot glue

1. Start gluing the eggs onto the wreath

2. Cover as much of the wreath as you can with the eggs

3. Fill in the empty spaces with the grass – I used a pencil to push the grass into the wreath. Once you’ve added the grass you can add another layer of eggs to fill it in some more.

I forgot to take a pic of filling the holes with the grass, before adding another layer of eggs.

4. Add a ribbon and hang!
