Bachelorette Care Package

While I’m still in “wedding” wrap-up mode, I thought I would share the little goody bags that I made for my sister’s bachelorette party back in September. We spent a day doing a wine tour and visited several vineyards, so that’s what I was focusing the stuff inside around. I got the burlap bags, tags, […]

Stuffed Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Bread

It’s been ages since I’ve made a post from something that I’ve made after being inspired by Pinterest. The last time I did a food-from-Pinterest post was October 7, 2013, which happened to be the day that I found out I was pregnant with Zachary. Holy moly, time flies. Anyway, I decided to get back […]

That Time I Made a Window Frame Mirror

I love windows.  I love real windows (the more natural light, the better) and I love using window panes as decorations.  When I was growing up, my grandma had a mirror in her stairway that was shaped like a window and ever since then, I’ve loved how it looked.  Lucky for me, DIY old window […]

DIY Harry Potter-Themed Sock Board

After a brief sabbatical, I decided to get crafty again.  I had seen this “Free Dobby” sock board pinned on Pinterest months ago and always kept it in the back of my mind as something to do.  I always seem to have an extra sock after I do laundry and this seemed the perfect idea […]

DIY Terra Cotta Candy Jar Jack-O’-Lantern

Another day, another DIY project inspired by Pinterest.  I was on a terra cotta kick after my jewelry tower/decorative wine cork tower (which is sitting on my brand new dresser, but is still a hybrid of both, lol) was finished and just started searching for “terra cotta crafts” on Pinterest.  I came across a picture […]

Quiche Muffins!

So my newest “go to” meal to bake lately has been quiche.  It started because I really wanted bacon, but felt I should be “healthy.”  I spent all summer eating healthy and pretty much eating nothing but fruit, fruit smoothies, egg white omelets, and gummy bears, haha, so I’ve been splurging a lot in the […]

DIY Wine Cork Jewelry Organizer

Out of everything I have ever pinned on Pinterest, this has by far been the most repinned item I have ever gotten.  So, I decided to give it a shot and make it myself last week.  Here’s the link to the original post.  I like how mine came out.  I used fabric from an old pair […]

DIY Terra Cotta Jewelry Tower

For the longest time, I have wanted to recreate the Terra Cotta Jewelry Tower that I saw on Pinterest probably 6-8 months ago.  On the night that I hit a snag trying to do another project, I decided to do this one instead.  I first saw it on this blog.  I have since seen the […]

Cheddar, Avocado & Sun-Dried Tomato Quesadillas

I’ve been on another big DIY/try new recipe kick lately.  I printed out a bunch of stuff from Pinterest, put them in a binder divided by category, and have been trying to work my way through them.  Hmmm.  Does that mean I took the Pinterest out of Pinterest?  Anyway, I was looking for quick-n-easy recipes […]

Homemade Potato Chips!

I haven’t done a Pinterest-inspired post in a while.  Last weekend, I was feeling a little bored and a lot inspired, so I decided to try making homemade potato chips.  I did this over the course of two days because it took a lot longer than I anticipated.  The first night I tried them, I […]
