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 […]

Lord of the Rings Tile Coasters

What do you do after you make coasters from pages of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone?  Why, you make coasters out of pages from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, of course!  My idea to make coasters using book pages actually came about because I was trying to figure out something to do […]

Harry Potter Tile Coasters

“Man Cave” Coasters

So back in my “early days” of getting into Pinterest (aka like 5 months ago), I repinned a picture of something called “Man Cave Coasters.”  Essentially, they’re coasters made using planter bottoms and bottle caps.  I’ve wanted to make them since I pinned them and a few weeks ago, I finally did using the bottle […]

Homemade Jewelry Cleaner

Another Do-It-Yourself-themed post.  I hope these aren’t getting old yet.  I have a simple one today, though, and it doesn’t involve tacos or quinoa.  In fact, it doesn’t mention food at all.  I found a “recipe” for a homemade jewelry cleaner on Pinterest a few weeks ago and finally tried it.  The best part about […]

Taco Raviolis!

So, a few weeks ago, I decided to try out a recipe I found on Pinterest for Taco Muffins.  They were a big success, but I had a lot of ingredients leftover afterwards.  I’m one of those people where if I don’t use or eat leftovers within a few days to a week, then they […]

Taco Muffins!

I was feeling like I needed a new project, so I started looking around Pinterest on Sunday night to pass some time when I came across a recipe called “Weight Watchers Taco Cupcakes.”  Intrigued and looking for an excuse lately to have a margarita tacos, I clicked on the link to check it out.  It […]

My DIY Twitter Secret Santa Gift

For the 3rd year in a row, I participated in Desiree’s Twitter Secret Santa (TSS) event.  This year, I had the pleasure of being the Secret Santa for one Mr. Christopher Kolk.  I must have some pretty strong intuition because back at the end of July, I was perusing Etsy while Jay was away in […]
