I did see natural food coloring for sale online, but was hoping for a cheaper DIY way that I can do at home. Has anyone ever made natural food coloring before?
Fighting sucks, especially when it's with someone you love. All you want is for the dishes to be rinsed before they're put in the dishwasher and the next thing you know, both of you are saying hurtful things. How can you have conflict without being hurtful? How can you build your own hacks?
Remember this awesome widely-circulated Pinterest image? I loved it and we made some similar lights for our wedding in our color, lime green. Now it's the holidays, and we celebrate Christmas. I was sad at the thought of taking apart our beautiful light strands to turn back into icicle lights (plus, it sounded like a lot of work), so I decided since they were green I'd use them for our holiday lights anyhow!
I'm not much of a baker, and during the holiday season I really miss the smells that were produced from my mother's kitchen. When I first saw these pomanders, I loved how pretty they looked — but then the amazing smell hit me and I knew I needed to make some to help fill my house with awesome aromas.
Maybe monsters under the bed aren't so cool, but what about on top? Offbeat Homie Sully gave us the heads up on this awesome DIY duvet cover from the blog JenThousandWords. Jen took her kid's artwork and traced it onto a duvet cover with a fabric marker. The results of this labour of love are super cute for kids and adults alike.
While browsing the web and day dreaming of a sewing adventure actually turning out awesome for once, I found a no-sew pattern for a baby blanket. After a few size modifications, I was able to make one that actually fits a king size bed.
It's incredibly cuddly and very easy to make. The project takes about an hour and a half (without any kitty interruptions) and it can double as a homemade gift for friends.
