another yarn letter

I spent a spontaneous evening of crafting with Brynn over at Blooms & Co. She worked on flowers while I made this wedding gift. I love the green and brown. I think this is my favorite one so far.

Stuffed Zucchini

I don't know why this blog is turning into a food blog all of a sudden. It's probably because I've had zero time for real crafting lately. I saw this recipe on Pinterest a while ago, and I've been dying to try it ever since. I finally made it for dinner tonight, and it is delish.

food craft

I made these darling ice cream cone cake pops for Chelsea's bday back in April and have been wanting to make them again ever since. I figured co-workers' Aly and Michelle's bday was the perfect excuse. It seems most good ideas have a little complication.

First the majority of the box of mini ice cream cones was completely crushed. Since it's Sunday, I had to come up with plan cream cones turned ice cream sundae. I bought 2 bags of m&ms and ended up with 19 red ones. Luckily I found another bag in my kitchen. I wanted to scream a few times along the way, but I've already practically forgotten what a pain in the rear they were and will most definitely make them again.

kiddie craft

I saw this fun rice craft on a random blog and have been dying to try it with the little tykes. It's so simple and so fun.
1. Put about 1/3 c rice in ziploc
2. Squirt hand sanitizer or rubbing alcohol in bag...just enough to set the color
3. Put food coloring or paint in bag
4. Squish to mix
5. Play
