Purple Pickles!

I LOVE pickles and pickled things! But the problem is, it gets expensive to buy jar after jar. I was eating lunch at my favorite coffee shop and they had pickled onions on the salad. It added something extra that I wanted to put on my packed salads, but the pickle brine would work forContinue reading “Purple Pickles!”

Milk Tea

About 2 years ago, I had to cut caffeine and alcohol completely out of my diet – 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 minimum…. Until I foundContinue reading “Milk Tea”

Homemade Syrup

If you follow my blog, you’ll see that I took a little break. Work got really busy (thank goodness) and I kept forgetting to take time and craft… 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. I’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! I’m not sure if I did it first in scouts or atContinue reading “Homemade Butter”

DIY Veggie Broth

Today I have a quick kitchen craft for you. I am all for saving money and using things I already have so when I found this DIY a few years ago, I made it all the time. To make chicken or beef broth, you boil raw bones and release a bunch of flavor in yourContinue reading “DIY Veggie Broth”

Sun Tea

It’s come to my attention that sun tea isn’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 I’d share withContinue reading “Sun Tea”

Candle Wax

Have you ever gotten to the bottom of a candle where the wick won’t light anymore and get frustrated that there’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 didn’t have to run between classes and could actually walk together and get to know each other. She’s an amazing woman I’m so thankful to have met, and I LOVEContinue reading “Spice Labels”

Fire Starters

Happy New Year!!! There’s nothing like celebrating the new year with a nice warm fire. If you’re in the colder areas of the world, inside is always comfy… 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 you’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 you’ve seen some of my recent posts, you’ll also know that I am terrible for holding onto β€œpotential” crafting materials that other people may consider trash. ThisContinue reading “Cauldron Candy Holders”
