Amazing Microwaved Desserts: 5 Minute Fudge

January 26, 2015

I currently working on a difficult pattern that's taking some time as well as a lot of forced motivation on my part so as I'm working through that I wanted to share something I made over the weekend. 5 Minute Microwaved Fudge! I originally got this idea from a chocolate version on food. I'll post the video below but here's how I made a peanut butter version. What's so amazing about this recipe is that you don't have to boil anything or use a candy thermometer. Just a plain ol' microwave will do.

First take 3 cups peanut butter chips

Lots of Good Deals to Be Had at DSW!

January 19, 2015

Just because the holiday season is over doesn’t mean the deals are over. And now is the time for boots! I honestly don’t think I’ve ventured outside in anything else for the past two months. But rather than wear the same pair of boots over and over it’s nice to have variety. And if you want variety DSW has more than 1,600 to choose from! I call that variety. Wish I could pick about a dozen more;-)
For instance these new black booties from DSW. They look great paired with a short shift dress. And these comfy fur lined leather boots which look great paired with leggings, a slouchy cardigan and an infinity scarf.
DSW is the destination for savvy Shoe Lovers everywhere. Customers experience a breathtaking assortment of designer brands at irresistible prices everyday.

The Best Decision I've Made All Year

January 14, 2015

Just wanted to share this little handy tip I finally instituted. I had seen this on Pinterest a while back but never remembered to get some toe separators at the dollar store. Then yesterday I was cleaning my sewing room and after sifting though a tangled mess of thread and needles I decided to make a special trip to avoid this ever happening again. 
Let me tell you, it might just be the best decision I've made all year. Seriously. They are better for bobbin storage than toe separation! They should always be referred to as bobbin separators because that's what they're truly meant for! They keep the thread from unraveling perfectly. I can see all the colors easily. I can access each bobbin conveniently. They store neatly. The -ly list goes on. After about 16 years of sewing I finally got it right;-P I highly recommend you try it as well!
Here's how they look in the box I keep in reach of my sewing machine. No more stray thread. No more needle balls. It's a brave new world;-) And if you're wondering whether or not I glittered them myself the answer is NO. They actually came that way. Just 2 for $1, pre-prettified.

The Look for Less: The Elusive Jenny Lind

January 9, 2015

Is everyone still ga-ga for jenny lind beds? Land of Nod always has what you're looking for but I'm not exactly cool with the price point. Walmart was selling a pretty inexpensive Jenny Lind bed which has since sold out for $269. A bit easier to swallow than Land of Nod's $509 price tag. But I had been looking for a toddler sized bed anyway. I saw Dream on Me had sold one a few years ago on Amazon for only $125 which had since disappeared from all online existence. Imagine my excitement when I checked Walmart's website and found brand new Dream on Me Jenny Lind toddler beds in mulitple colors
Now, I beT you can opt to not include the side rails maybe even the middle support leg. I'd have to see it in person to know for sure but I think I might get two of these in either gray or aqua for the new bedroom I'm planning to make for Eloise and Henri.

Ice and Wood Buffalo Check: Winter Wonderland Free Skirt Pattern

January 7, 2015

Newest variation of the Winter Wonderland Free Skirt Pattern. Get the pattern and instructions here. The buffalo check pattern has a mix of browns and blues sort of like the scene outside mixed ice and woods.
I found this fabric for only $2 a yard at my favorite fabric outlet just blocks down the street from my house. I wish you all had a fabric outlet down the street from your house like this one. They have a $1 table and a $2 table where you can find fabrics that probably used to be upwards of $20+ a yard. And these tables are long and piled 5 rolls deep with fabric. It's pretty amazing.
