Craft Room Chaos: The Beginning

Forget skeletons in the closet. This is worse. My craft room doesn’t just have skeletons, it’s like a craft graveyard. And, as much as my Type A personality is screaming “STOP! Don’t do it!”, I’m going to show you what it actually looks like. Right. Now. It’s pretty hideous. I should be ashamed. Part of … Continue reading

Pull-Apart PIZZA!

As a stay-at-home Mom, the few spare moments that I snag during the day are usually spent crafting, blogging, or researching for either of those two tasks.

Cookie Cutter Scavenger Hunt

Ahhh, Valentine’s Day. A day of love, flowers, chocolate, cookies, and time with loved ones. I’m a fan of any special occasion that involves food, particularly the ‘sweet’ or ‘dessert’ variety. I was on the look-out for a yummy Valentine’s Day dessert recipe, and as luck would have it, Jillee over at One Good Thing … Continue reading

Chocolate Peanut Butter Popcorn

If, like me, you enjoy anything covered in peanut butter and chocolate, then I do believe you might enjoy this tasty little snack I whipped up! Allan is a popcorn addict. We have at least three bags of kernels in our pantry at ALL times. No microwave popcorn for this dude. We pop it old-school. … Continue reading
