Parmesan Cheese Chips

Last week I tried some parmesan cheese “chips” from my local grocery store. They were salty and had just enough crunch to get me through my afternoon snack craving. I used them again the next day to go with a big bowl of warm homemade tomato soup (instead of using crackers) which was delicious together. This week, instead of paying upward of $5-$6 for a small package of 12 parmesan chips. I grabbed my own block of cheese, turned on the oven and set out to make my own.

Road Trip to Broken Bow, Oklahoma

Every October Elisabeth and I, along with our husbands, travel to Broken Bow, Oklahoma for a weekend of fun and relaxation.

I can’t wait to share with you all of our fun and pictures from our trip last week! If you’ve never been to Broken Bow it is the best place to spend with your spouse, family or friends – it’s a hidden secret that is waiting for your adventures.

Easy DIY Christmas Ornament Wreath

This is BY FAR the easiest way to make an ornament wreath. I tried making one earlier in the week with glass ornaments and hot glue and let me just say… that was a big, giant nightmare. Make it easy on yourself and stick to the plastic ornaments and don’t even look at the glue. I used about 70 ornaments to make this wreath. I have about 30 of the smallest ornaments left in my package and I’m thinking about making another with just the small ones.

No-Sew Tutu

Texas Craft House

Today’s craft was so much fun! I went to my sister in law’s baby shower this weekend and she absolutely loved my wooden stackable cross that I made earlier this month. I loved seeing all of her other gifts. Right away I noticed a tutu that was gifted to her and investigated. 🙂 I realized it was made out of a simple headband, tulle, and there was absolutely no sewing involved. This shocked me because tutus can be so expensive! Well not anymore! My tutu craft cost LESS than $5.00! It would make the perfect gift for any little girl in your life. 🙂

Yarn Wrapped Letter Monogram

Elisabeth and I are busy getting ready for our first craft booth next weekend. We’ll have some really great posts coming up about our booth design and booth crafts for displays. We are having a lot of fun but are quickly learning the amount of time and work it takes to have a craft booth.

Today’s craft is an oldie but a goody. It’s a monogram wreath or display that has been wrapped in yarn. I think this would love great with sayings like “home” or “love” or initials in a nursery or on a mantel. So many great ideas!

Wedding Date Sign

This weekend my sister and I went to the antique mall to look around. We passed by some fun looking wooden painted numbers that I instantly thought would be great to have in the master bedroom to signify an anniversary date. I dug through the tub and couldn’t find all numbers that I needed. Then the idea came to me to try and make my own numbers so we stopped at Michaels on the way home and grabbed everything I needed.

Texas Wreath

Elisabeth and I have had so much popularity with her Americana Wreath. We’ve blogged about it here, are selling it on Etsy and have even taught craft classes teaching people how to make it. Her use of burlap and ruffles to make the American Flag inspired me to recreate the Texas flag using the same technique. Here are some step by step pictures and instructions to tell you exactly how to make this fun, rustic, Texas wreath.
