Trying to think of a creative use for these yard sale metal goblets, I came up with these ghoulish goblets.
Then, using this idea for ghost cookies, we made these out of E.L. Fudge because Target doesn't sell Nutter Butters (at least ours doesn't). Weird, I know. (Finn insisted on putting white chocolate chips for the eyes because the brown ones are too scary).
After hearing about the Fly Lady for the first time on Whitney's blog, I decided to give her tips on cleaning a sink a try. For two and a half years I've wondered if there is a proper way to thoroughly clean a sink.
Do you need a little frill for your upcoming holiday decor?
Because I might have just what your Christmas tree needs this year....
It was another drowsy Fall afternoon in the Schuller house. Racking my brain for fun, mess-free activities, I thought of these pumpkins I'd seen on Amy Atlas' site.
I had some small white paper bags on hand, and we just colored on the pumpkins, put some candy in them and used masking tape for the stems. Easy, clean and best of all, involved candy.
- 1-year Drs. appt. (and lead test) for Miles
- Baking chocolate chip cookies
- Picking up from preschool
- Going to the gym
- Making dinner...what we're having still to be determined
Hope you have a great Thursday!
It hardly feels like a year has passed since Miles was born, but alas, the little guy turned one on Saturday.
These being "leaner times" for us, I decided to make him some much-needed shoes instead of buy. Again, I turned to Susan for inspiration and was not disappointed to find a free pattern. I made them out of a chamois cloth and adapted the pattern to fit 18-month-old size feet.
Feeling a little under the weather, Miles smirked at his own personal chocolate cake at first.
And it's also hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, then New Years. I'm making and selling my homemade caramel chocolate pretzel rods so while everyone else is eating commercial Halloween candy, you can be eating something made with love, all from scratch, with no bar codes on the wrapper! :)
This little man is about to turn one and I just couldn't pass up this little cart at Ikea this week.
Early birthday presents are so fun too.
I loved this pillow instantly and wanted a version for my own living room.
So I cut the fabric that used to be my curtains into 2" strips, stitched, then ruffled them, and with some pinning and stitching, made them into my new ruffly pillow.
