Embroidered this on our way home from southern illinois today….inspired by one of milo’s favorite songs!

This is another thing I saw floating around on pinterest. I asked a few weeks ago where to get cute little knobs like this, and everyone said “hobby lobby.” There really isn’t one in the city, so I just kind of shrugged it off. Well, when we ended up in southern illinois this week, I remembered there was a hobby lobby in carbondale. So off we went, and everyone was right. THAT sure is where you go for cute little knobs! AND they were on sale this week for 50% off. I got six knobs for around $1.50 a piece. My uncle found some wood in his garage that worked, and helped me with the drilling. And just like that – for under $10, I made my own jewelry organizer.
We’re a little star wars crazy over here. I saw something like this on the internet, and made my own version. I used an old shirt, left over from the bunting project, and felt pieces, then embroidered it into place.
This is a super easy, hand-sewn, felt hand puppet that I made for Milo’s easter basket. Original post and directions found here.
Chocolate, peanut butter and banana. Three of my favorite things. I’ve seen variations on pinterest, so I figured I’d take a stab at these. They looked pretty simple….and they are…except I can’t for the life of me ever figure out how to get chocolate to melt and be all spread-y and thin and nice. One of the recipes said to add milk; I know from the past anytime I do this, my milk gets hard and clumpy. So I did it anyway, and sure enough, that batch was ruined. I tried adding a little earth balance to that batch to make it thinner, but it was a lost cause.
To make these all I did was chop up a banana, spread some peanut butter on each piece, melt some chocolate (just melted it and worked with it – was kind of thick, so it was messy and hard to work with towards the end, which is why these are NOT pretty), and then dipped them in the chocolate. Put them in the freezer and now they are ready to go.
These will make a great after-dinner treat!
