Decor and More

After the sewing fiasco, Monday’s interest was home decor craft.  I love to do little crafts around the house, but especially for upcoming holidays.  I chose to do a simple yarn wreath for the Fourth of July.  I got the yarn at Walmart, and I chose to use a Styrofoam wreath this time, instead of a straw wreath I’ve used in previous projects.

I don’t think using a Styrofoam wreath is easier.  It gives a different look to the wreath.  Straw wreaths are more round, whereas this wreath had square edges.  I think it just depends on the project.  Also, I’m not sure how well this wreath will stand the test of time, but we shall see.  If I need to make it again in the future, it should be pretty easy.

Then Tuesday’s interest was the most dangerous of all interests….baking.  I had so many choices on Pinterest to choose, but decided to go easy with this yummy Snickerdoodle muffin.  Oh my goodness, people, this muffin is amazing.  See, I love soft Snickerdoodle cookies, but they always seem to harden after a day.  In muffin form, they can stay soft and simply divine.

Oh, and I have to give a shout out to this little “kitchen gadget” (it’s not really a gadget, but I can’t think of another word to describe it).  I got it at The Container Store, well my husband got it for me last year at Easter.  It’s a nice little flip book to put printed off recipes in while I cook.

Hope you are having a great week!
