Fall is the season where I finally begin to venture out again. The heat is beginning to dissipate, the days are cloudy just enough to break up the monotony of the sun, the longer sleeves and cardigans get moved up to the front of the closet. Here is what I’ve been up to lately. When [...]

Recipe Thursday: Chicken and Rice

September 29, 2011

In the summer of 2004, I stayed with my aunt Alma. She’s actually my great aunt, because she is my grandfather’s sister, but she is more like a mom to me. (Confusing enough?) I also look a lot like her and I don’t look at all like my mom and dad. (This picture is several [...]

Recipe Thursday: Telephone Meatloaf

September 1, 2011

Telephone Meatloaf. Weird name, huh? Does anyone eat meatloaf anymore? I wasn’t sure. We do, but we’re a little retro around here.

Tutorial Tuesday – Wipes Case Tutorial

May 31, 2011

Finally, a Tutorial Tuesday! Actually, this one was kind of an accident.  I’ve been making these for almost 2 years now, and I don’t necessarily consider them part of my “tutorial” qualifications, because my Tutorial Tuesdays are designed to force me to learn something new and then share it with you. However, I am so [...]

Tutorial Tuesday (on Wednesday) – Lined Pillowcase Dress

May 4, 2011

Yeah… I couldn’t get to posting this yesterday.  That’s what I get for not making myself write this last week. I spent a long amount of time online last week looking at pillowcase dresses. I knew the basic concept: square of fabric, cut arm holes, make casing for elastic/ribbon, finish. I made one when munchkin [...]
