Marshmallows covered in chocolate and caramel.

Chocolate-Covered CaramallowsI saw this recipe and had to try it! My favorite candies are caramel and marshmallow and these did not disappoint. I was a little nervous about making the caramel in the microwave. I have my old stand-by that involves stirring the mixture constantly for a full hour! But, these turned out delicious, and it was so much easier to make. They were gone so quickly, I am ashamed to admit.


Huichol Style Yarn or Thread Paintings

Huichol Style Yarn or Thread PaintingsI came across this idea while trying to find art projects to teach at my daughter's school. This looked amazing. I don't think I could do this with 100 kids at once, but my kids loved it! It took us about half an hour and it was fun to see what they came up with.



Mosaic Bug Bowling BallsI received a few old bowling balls from a friend and wanted to make something cute. Paint did not last. I decided that tile would be a lot sturdier and hold up to the elements. I love watching kids walking down the street and getting excited to see the Very Hungry Caterpillar and his friend the ladybug.

No Bake Chocolate Mint Cookies

No Bake Chocolate Mint CookiesThis is a very simple way to get your fix of those crispy, chocolatey, minty cookies. I had seen a similar recipe and they used Andes baking chips. I had never heard of them. But sure enough, there they were at Target!

play dough rose

Soft Silky Play DoughThis dough is amazing. It is made with conditioner and corn starch. The texture is very soft and silky. It's perfect for younger kids because it is so easy to work with. Just keep an eye on them, to make sure they don't try to eat it. The dough feels wonderful.


two finished hand warmers

Pocket Hand WarmersI saw this idea on Pinterest and thought it was such a nice way to have a little warmth on those days you have to go out in the cold. You can make a pair very quickly. I just made basic squares. But, I've seen hearts, owls, ladybugs, you name it. These would make a nice gift for those in cold climates.


Hot Chocolate on a Stick

Hot Chocolate on a StickWhile perusing Pinterest, I kept coming across "Hot Chocolate on a Stick". I had never heard of such a thing. But, I am so glad I found it. It makes a delicious cup of hot chocolate. We are really enjoying these. They would make a nice gift for someone... if they make it out of the house!


jars with markers soaking in water

Making Watercolor Paints with Dried Up...Instead of throwing away all those dried up markers, you can create paint for the kiddos, or yourself, with them. Separate the colors - reds, blues, greens, etc. Put each group of colors in a small jar with water.


Chocolate Covered Cherries

Chocolate Covered CherriesThis is a super easy way to make chocolate covered cherries. The kids had so much fun helping me with this recipe. I've tried a few recipes and this one is a keeper!


finished bars

Crispy Peanut Butter BarsThis recipe is supposed to taste like Butterfinger candy bars. It's very close but a little softer than the candy. They are delicious. Everyone loved them. There are only 4 ingredients to this candy. Super quick and easy!

cobbler on a plate

Peach CobblerThis is a great recipe for this time of year. I've been finding peaches on sale for 49 cents a pound! This recipe is a big hit with my family. My husband's family is from the South and they said it's the best they've tasted. Once you get the peaches peeled and sliced, the rest is pretty easy.


Romantic Framed Wedding Song Lyrics

Romantic Framed Wedding Song LyricsI saw this idea on Pinterest quite a while ago and loved it. I finally made it and it was pretty easy. The supplies were minimal and it was inexpensive to make. Plus, I love how simple but elegant it is. I think this would make a great gift for someone's anniversary or a post-wedding gift.


Whipped Chocolate Truffle Candy Bars

Whipped Chocolate Truffle Candy BarsThis recipe is a copycat recipe of a Three Musketeer bar. I didn't think it tasted exactly like one but it was better! The filling was a little softer, and it was more like an airy soft truffle. My 5 year old tasted one and said, "Mommy, this is the best thing in the world!". My 12 year old took a bite and immediately said, "Mom! You're making these again, right?". The recipe was so simple with minimal ingredients. I will be making these again, for sure.


horse string art

String ArtWhen I was a little girl, we had a piece of string art that I loved. I have no idea who made it or where it came from. I'd just sit and look at it. Lately, I've seen lots of different string art ideas on pinterest. I was excited, but nervous to try it. But, I'm very happy with how it turned out.


closeup of candle

Teacup CandleThis is a simple project, but I think the results are so pretty. These make a nice gift or decoration for your house. No special candle-making tools are necessary. You can purchase the candles at a dollar store and pour the wax into an old teacup or mug. I paid $5 total to make these 2 candles.


containers of lip balm

Lip BalmMy lips have been so dry lately and I couldn't find my usual lip stuff. Instead of going out and buying yet another one, I made some. I had all the ingredients, but that's because I make lots of homemade hand salves and foot balms, etc.
