Pinwheels and Pinterest

This month, my club members all made a card with a pinwheel on it. Pinwheels are so fun and easy to make. I've got a FREE, easy photo tutorial on how to make a pinwheel under my Free Tutorials tab above. You can make them any size you like too.

I used the Chevron embossing folder on the Whisper White card front, added a knot of stitched Real Red grosgrain ribbon, and my pinwheel (with a silver glimmer brad). The "hip hip hooray" stamp is from a hostess set called Happy You. I punched it out using the 1-3/4" circle punch, and layered it on the larger scallop circle. I don't know about you, but polka dots make me happy!

Now onto my Pinterest shares:

Today I baked two loaves of artisian bread. You need to let the dough sit for up to 18 hours, so make it a day ahead then bake it before you want to eat it. It uses a crockpot in the oven and is SIMPLE.

I also baked two loaves of Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips. My kids love it (thanks Maria for steering me to the recipe!).

Then I made a couple gallons of laundry detergent - one is for a neighbor. I added a tag so she can make her own next time.

While I was waiting for bread to bake, I cleaned out what I call my baking cabinet. The few things that were expired got thrown out, I saved a couple of containers and washed them out to hold things like brown sugar (I can't stand those plastic bags because I get sugar everywhere!), and the super high top shelf has items only on the edge so I can actually see what I have and use them.

I've included the links for all of the Pinterest items under the photos, but you may choose to Follow me on Pinterest. I've got a button for that in my right-hand column.
I hope you're enjoying your day! Next on my list: stamping!!!

Yummooo!!! That bread looks delicious! It would look even better in my mouth slabbed with butter!
Have you tried your detergent? Did you like the way it cleaned?
Oh, and of course, the card is cute and looks like a great go to card for almost any occasion.
