Milk Tea

About 2 years ago, I had to cut caffeine and alcohol completely out of my diet โ€“ yes, it sucked. At first at least. But I had plenty of decaffeinated teas I could enjoy instead. Gradually, I could reintroduce both into my life but still tried to keep them to a minimumโ€ฆ. Until I foundContinue reading “Milk Tea”

Homemade Syrup

If you follow my blog, youโ€™ll see that I took a little break. Work got really busy (thank goodness) and I kept forgetting to take time and craftโ€ฆ or take pictures and write about it. Luckily, I decided months ago that I was going to take my whole birthday weekend off since it aligns withContinue reading “Homemade Syrup”

Homemade Butter

On July 4th I had a few friends over for a fire that turned into a game night. Iโ€™m not sure how we got on the topic, but I said something about making butter and realized that not everyone has made butter before! Iโ€™m not sure if I did it first in scouts or atContinue reading “Homemade Butter”

Itโ€™s come to my attention that sun tea isnโ€™t universal! A little while back, I set out some sun tea to enjoy at a campfire and the friends I had over had no clue what I was talking about! I made a few different flavors and everyone loved it, so I thought Iโ€™d share withContinue reading “Sun Tea”

Candle Wax

Have you ever gotten to the bottom of a candle where the wick wonโ€™t light anymore and get frustrated that thereโ€™s so much wax left in the bottom? I usually get to this point and try to use a knife to peel it out of the bottom of the jar, or do a double boilerContinue reading “Candle Wax”

Spice Labels

Everyone, meet my friend Ashley!! We met a few years back in college while studying math courses (fun, I know). Since it was summer, we didnโ€™t have to run between classes and could actually walk together and get to know each other. Sheโ€™s an amazing woman Iโ€™m so thankful to have met, and I LOVEContinue reading “Spice Labels”

Fire Starters

Happy New Year!!! Thereโ€™s nothing like celebrating the new year with a nice warm fire. If youโ€™re in the colder areas of the world, inside is always comfyโ€ฆ but if you live somewhere a little warmer like me, it is the perfect time to grab a blanket and sit outside around a campfire. One ofContinue reading “Fire Starters”

Cauldron Candy Holders

If youโ€™ve followed my blog, you know that I have been trying to use the supplies around my craft room and not buy any supplies this year. If youโ€™ve seen some of my recent posts, youโ€™ll also know that I am terrible for holding onto โ€œpotentialโ€ crafting materials that other people may consider trash. ThisContinue reading “Cauldron Candy Holders”
