My latest sewing addiction is Pillow Cases! They are a quick, easy project. I *love* creating them just the way I like them! The possibilities are absolutely endless!
I am betting that you are a BIG fan of Macaroni and Cheese. I mean isn’t everyone?! I am pretty sure that’s one of the foods you first ate as a toddler and then fell in love with it for the rest of your life.

Nothing beats homemade bread, fresh or fluffy from your own kitchen. Get your kids involved for lots of kitchen fun especially for this recipe, make them rolling and coating the dough with sugar, a great way to introduce them into baking.
I’ve an adorable collection of food art for you! These wonderful work of art are created from simple food items that we consume on a daily basis. I don’t think most of us pause to admire what we eat unless it is brilliantly presented to us. Fruits and vegetables come in several hues, and subtle patterns. With imagination, creativity, and patience you could create pirates, bunnies, bears, caterpillars, and more.
I have such a love/hate relationship with spring cleaning. I love getting the house spic and span, deep cleaning, and getting rid of winter clutter…but I also hate cleaning (just ask my mom or husband) especially when the weather is warm and I would rather be outside.
