I have a Pumpkin Board. I love pumpkin anything and when I found this recipe, I got all excited. I’ve been sitting on the recipe for 5 weeks. I have all the ingredients and almost always do. I keep pumpkin in my cupboard in May!!
This is the Pin. Dreamy Desserts goes into great detail and the recipe is easy, just very time consuming.
Look at her blog to see.
My pictures are as follows along with the recipe for: (I didn’t have ground cloves)
1. There are a ton of ingredients but things that most cooks/bakers have in the house
2. There are wet ingredients and dry ingredients, then you mix them together
3. Then a pastry bag or a large ziplock with a cut tip
4. Then swirl them in a circular pattern…mine didn’t work that way, maybe because I used the ziplock
But they looked nice after they came out of the oven
5. The ooy gooy cream cheese inside
6. The finished product
My yield 17.
If I make nothing else off my Pumpkin pin board this fall, I will have not been disappointed!!
1. Vinegar and Baking Soda to refresh those musty towels…is a keeper.
2. Making Fabric Softener…I’ve been doing it for months, can’t tell the difference. Very cheap to make and a batch whips up in no time, even my 15 year old makes it when we run out…it’s a keeper too. As you can see, I wrote the directions right on the jug. No need to measure the conditioner, it is the exact amount.
3. Cleaning the gross shower floor (don’t judge me, it must be a problem if you don’t have a maid or this person wouldn’t have tried it in the first place). I don’t really want to show my results (look away now if you are squeamish). Also, I used Ajax and not Dawn. I am going to try again with Dawn to see if it finishes the task.
AFTER (note: this was after 2 separate 1 hour set and scrub sessions…)
4. No grate laundry detergent…my husband picked out the Dawn “scent” I told him he better like it, because I’m making A LOT of laundry detergent.
It seems very thin (but looks thin in the Pin too)…I’ll report back on this one.
Just started the first load with this detergent.
What I can tell so far is that it doesn’t suds up in the washing machine, not skeptical yet…
Update: so thin, it doesn’t suds up and it really doesn’t have a smell, BUT the clothes seem clean. Maybe I am just so used to thick detergent that suds and smells. I think I will also try the grate kind.
I was all excited, I had all the ingredients. I NEVER have all the ingredients. I wanted to make this even easier so I mixed the marinade last night so all I’d have to do is put chicken in Crockpot, pour marinade over the chicken and turn it on.
Here’s the recipe from the original website:
One of my most favorite Old Navy T-shirts got some random holes in it. I was very disappointed until I saw this super easy tutorial on Pinterest. I came home from work today and made it in about 20 minutes. I love how it turned out!
As you can see the instruction are almost too easy. In case you want to make it, I recommend cutting each section approx 1/2” apart.
My daughter received a Firefly cell phone for Christmas. She has been very responsible, but a boy took her phone and threw it and the face plate cracked and fell off, we found 2 of the pieces and it is now taped together. My husband had wanted me to make a case, so I did (a little too late).
I changed a few things when I made mine today. As the phone was smaller, I used a larger seam allowance. I did not use a coordinating color, but I trimmed the front with a piece of bias tape. I also used fleece instead of batting and it will have a carabiner on it to attach to her jeans.
So here is my case.
I have been wanting to try this scarf for awhile. I had a piece of white textured knit in my fabric stash so I figured I’d use it before investing any money in a new piece of fabric. I made the scarf as directed but wasn’t real trilled with how big/thick it turned out, so I trimmed mine down and I like it much better.
Picture one is my finished project as instructed and picture 2 is my version. I’m not too sure I’m crazy about it being white, so I may dye it. If so, I’ll post a revised version.
This morning I took out one of my favorite long sleeve v-necks from Old Navy and discovered it had a bleach mark on it. I remembered pinning this DIY project just a day or so ago. Normally, I would have been devastated, because that’s how I roll.
BUT, I knew I could fix this problem and still be able to wear the shirt!!
My finished project and my new old or old new shirt!!
It’s funny how bleach on black turns red, not what I expected…but I like it.
I will NEVER hem jeans any other way. This is genius.
Pinned and ready to sew
Here is my finished product, I was so pleased, I was smiling while ironing!!
From a distance you can not even tell I hemmed these and without cutting the jeans.
Close-up you can kinda see where the alteration was made.
The best part, these are for my friend’s daughter, and if she gets taller, I can just take out the stitching and iron and they will be as good as new!
My husband wanted me to make curtains for the new theatre room. I have seen fabric covered roller shade tutorials before but never had a place to hang that type of curtain. I wanted something no frills and so I decided this was the place to use the fabric covered roller shade.
Along with this tutorial I also used this website.
My finished project!
My husband picked out the fabric, it’s his theatre room after all.
It’s hard to get a feel for what the fabric looks like because it it black on black. I trimmed it with velvet ribbon.
Pinned 8 days ago and immediately fell in love. I have cut the ribbon and chose my button. I need to buy the shirt. Let’s see how long this one takes me.
11/20 Sent my hubby to Walmart to pick up a tshirt, he got distracted and came home with nothing :( Oh well, maybe I’ll stop and pick one up at Joann’s or Walmart on my way home tomorrow. I really want to have this done by Dec 1…that’s my goal.
12/3 purchased and washed the shirt…my daughter chose black. I will most like finish this long awaited project tomorrow! Pretty excited actually :)
12/4 Well here it is…finished product. I think it turned out really great!
Pinned 8 weeks ago and I made my version approx a month ago.
The original tutorial has the top stapled on, but I wanted to put my own spin on it.
I made it with a drawstring to tie onto the tray table (table can still be used as intended) and I can also use it flat on a table top.
