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!!!
