New adventures!

Hey friends! Want to see a sneak peek at my current project??

I'm so excited about this one!

I found this beauty at a thrift store! For $40! I had been dreaming about coming across a chair like this in hopes to make over into something fun and colorful and awesome! 

I've had it for about a month and have finally started working on it. Stay tuned for the end result!

Dress Up Hat

The weather will be getting colder soon, hat season is coming! I was looking for a new hat to make for big sister. I came across the "Rapunzel" ones, with hair made out of yarn and braided in pig tails, and thought that would look so cute!

Well, I started looking for a pattern and then it dawned on me, I could make any beanie hat I wanted and then just add the yarn hair to the brim.

So here it is!

It looks SO cute on her. I even put it on little sister just for fun and she looked just like a cabbage patch doll.

The best thing about this hat is its multi purpose. Big sister can wear it outside to keep her head warm, but she can also wear it inside to play dress up!

Now I have to decide on a new hat for little sister. There's a few I like, so I have to narrow it down and pick one!

Freezer Meals

We are on holidays this week visiting friends. They are expecting their second baby next month and I wanted to return the favour of stocking up some freezer meals for them for after baby's arrival.
Another dear friend came out to help me get it all made.

We made a bunch of meatballs, Spaghetti sauce, chilli, breakfast burritosBBQ chicken breasts, and Thai pork with peanut sauce.

Freezer cooking is very easy. My favourite are crock pot meals. Just place all the ingredients in a large freezer ziplock bag. When you're ready to make the meal, thaw in the fridge overnight, dump contents of the bag into the crockpot and cook according to heat setting and time frame of the recipe!

Have a great week everyone!
