I got this cute little pattern here for free and made one bunny for a birthday gift and the other went to my daughter who was hovering the whole time I was sewing! On the second bunny I decided to spruce up the belly a bit because the fabric I had used, while nice and fuzzy, seemed too plain. So I cut a hole in the belly of the bunny and put the striped fabric behind the hole and stitched it up.
I saw on pinterest that there was a pattern for sale to make a mouse in an altoids tin. The pattern looked really cute, but I can usually eyeball something and not need a pattern. So here is my version of a Mouse in a Tin.
Start with you altoids tin.
Cut felt to fit inside the top and bottom of the tin and glue it in place.
Make a cute mouse out of felt and fabric scraps.
Make a top blanket and glue it to the bottom of the tin so it won't fall out. Then make a small pillow out of a fabric scrap.
My amazing husband humored me when I asked him to grab up some discarded pallets. He was skeptical of my visions of pallet gardens. But once I showed him a few ideas on Pinterest, he ran with it and came up with his own version of a pallet garden. I must say he did a super fantastically amazing job putting these together and even went above and beyond by adding solar lights! :) Here are some "instructions", it really isn't difficult. You just cover one side of the pallet with wood to create a bottom, box in the sides with more wood to create a box and then seal the wood.
Et voila, pallet garden!
Cover the "bottom" with wood, he used one solid piece but for the next ones he said he may use planks.
Cover each side with a plank of wood to create a "box".
Find cheap/free labor to paint them up for you. Just be sure not use oil based stains that could taint the soil.
We arranged them on different heights of bricks for a "fancy" look. :)
To my blog followers. I am sorry I have nothing new to post. I recently went back to college full time and it has left me with no free time to crochet or craft. But the good news is my creativity has another outlet!
Through my classes I am able to play around with my photography! YAY! So I may not be posting here as much, but I hope to be posting periodically on my photography blog located here :http://nikkipaigephotography.blogspot.com/
Wish me luck in school! So far it is amazing and I am so glad to be back at it and SO glad I took most of my prerequisites when I went the first time! :)
I knew the kids were gonna come home from school all sugared up with more candy & treats in tow so I decided not to get them a box of candy or Valentine treat. I decided to make a fun heart shaped dinner for them to celebrate Valentine's Day and to show how much I love them. My homemade heart shaped pizzas were a huge hit! They loved the pizzas and the thought that went into preparing them.
Here's how to make some special super easy heart shaped pizzas for your kiddos!
Preheat oven to 375-400 degrees.
Take flour tortillas and cut them into heart shapes.
Lay tortillas on a baking sheet and spread them with pizzas sauce.
Sprinkle pizza cheese over top of the sauce.
If you wanna get fancy, like I did, cut the pepperoni in to heart shapes. I used a tiny "cookie" cutter that I usually use to make bento box lunches. I then took the scraps of pepperoni and hid them under the cheese and placed the cute pepperoni hearts on top of the cheese.
Add any other toppings your kids like to the pizzas.
Bake in oven for 5-8 mins. Keep a close watch, the tortillas brown up quickly.
