I will, on occasion, do a Saturday post containing links to things I’m looking at online, though the week. It doesn’t necessarily have to be food related, it can be anything.
I’ve been looking at a lot of craft and home decoration websites in the last few weeks, as we are in the process of repainting the living room. We’re also looking for cheap decorating ideas for my daughter’s room. Here’s what I’ve found this week.
- This blogger stenciled her ceiling and it turned out gorgeous! I wish my ceiling was flat!
- This blogger took cardboard boxes and lined them to make beautiful baskets. Gorgeous! My husband went to a local store and picked up some very sturdy boxes so I could have a crack at this one soon.
- This blogger made beautiful roses out of felt. My daughter is interested in us doing something similar, in purple, for her room. There are many tutorials on making roses around Valentine’s Day. This blogger makes them out of crepe paper, and this blogger makes them out of tissue paper.
- This blogger made a beautiful quilled monogram. I told my husband when things slowed down (maybe this coming winter) and the living room painting is done, I’d love to do something similar.
- Here’s how to turn a mason jar into a soap dispenser!
Concerning children, I’ve found some great blog posts to share.
- Here’s a wonderful blog post on teaching your children about sustainable agriculture.
- Commotion From the Ocean of Life has a great series on Letter of the Week for pre-readers.
- Here is a great article about how to get flame-retardants out of your children’s sleepwear.
And, of course, there’s always food…
- I recently had roast quail for the first time when some friends took us to dinner at the local, gluten-free restaurant and I’ve been thinking about trying to make some at home. This recipe looks great!
