Gettin' my craft on!

When Mike and I were first married I was constantly crafting.  I said "craftING", not "craftY"!  Being newly married and broke, it was the only way to decorate our little apartment.  Give me can of spray paint and I could transform just about anything...and I did!

Over the years life has left me less time for the creative side and I find myself missing it.  The time and mental energy it takes to start a project (not to mention FINISH a project) is just not there.  Pinterest has been the jump start I needed to get the creative juices flowing again.  Yes, I'm officially a Pinterest addict.  Here are a couple of things I've done this past week.

Most of you are aware of my affinity for SB salted caramel mocha.  My budget was taking a major hit, so I decided I had to learn to make my own.  I'm not one for a whole lot of testing.  I would rather find someone on the internet who has already done the work and then "borrow" their final product.  Isn't that why Al Gore invented the internet?  Anyway, I went in search of a recipe to create my own coffee goodness and boy did I hit the Motherload.  This gal did the testing and found the perfect recipe.  Crossing my fingers, I gave it a try and!  I am in salted caramel mocha heaven...if there is such a place.  Check it out and try one for yourself.  Then send me a note telling me how much you appreciate me finding this recipe for you!

I also was able to create some of the rolled fabric flowers that are so hot on Pinterest right now.  I made one to go on Emma's sweater that matched the scarf I was wearing for our family pics yesterday.  Other than a few (OK, several) hot glue gun burns, it turned out great and I'm happy to be crafting again!


  1. I love your family pic! It is perfect! And I would love for you to show us how you make those flowers. Did you already post a tutorial and I missed it?
