Mod Circle Art

Our stairwell has been in desperate need of some art for awhile now.  Not many people go up there so it wasn't worth spending a bunch of money on so I came up with another $1 piece of artwork!  (This is the tutorial that I shared over at Davis Domestications last week in case you missed it.)  I wanted something bold but simple with a bit of a mod feel to it.  I'm not sure if I pulled it off but I'm happy with the results nonetheless.  :)

Pumpkin Spice Donut Holes

I know, it's another donut hole recipe.  I can't help it!  I'm addicted to the darn things.  They are just so easy to make in delicious fall flavors.  At least I have finished up with the apple recipes and moved on to pumpkin.  That's progress, right?  :)

Apple Cider Donut Holes

I think baking might just be my favorite part about fall.  :)  You can't get any more fall than apple cider.  I just wish that I was able to pick up some apple cider from the apple orchard we always went to when I was a kid.  Eight hours is a bit of a drive for cider though so I had to go with the store-bought kind.

Comic Book Art

Lately we have been working on the "Man Cave" and I decided to surprise my geeky comic book loving guys with some artwork.  For this one, I turned my son into a comic book character!  This effect can be used to blow up any image though so you can use this for any style of artwork.

Enchiladas Verdes

Enchiladas Verdes is my favorite dish at my favorite Mexican restaurant back in my hometown. Living eight hours away, I don't get to eat there very often so I have to whip up my own version every once in awhile. They are enchiladas made with salsa verde (green salsa) which is mild but has lots of flavor. It is a nice change from the regular old enchiladas.

Potion Bottles

It's time for the first Halloween post of the season!  I'm so excited.  I was going to wait and have the entire month of October full of Halloween tutorials but I started seeing Halloween posts as soon as September 1st rolled around and I just couldn't wait.  I had a poll on my Facebook page to make sure people were ready to see these kind of posts already and 62% of the people who voted want them now so here we are!

Techniques For Printing On Fabric

You may remember this How To: Print On Fabric tutorial from last year.  Well, it has been getting a lot of traffic lately there have been quite a few questions.  I decided to do a little experimenting and hopefully get everyone the answers they are looking for.

Guest Post from Shealynn's Faerie Shoppe

Why, hello there! I am Shealynn, the teenaged artist/crafter behind Shealynn's Faerie Shoppe.

I'd like to thank Megan for inviting me onto her blog to do a guest post! She deserves a round of applause and a sprinkle of fairydust. :)

Now, before we begin, I have something very important to tell you about myself...

Apple Pie with Crunchy Cinnamon Topping

This has been my go-to apple pie recipe for over ten years.  I make it at least once every fall so I started craving it as soon as the weather turned cooler.  I added more apples this time to make it thicker and made the crust from scratch.

Fabric Swatch Ring

I don't know about you but every time I go to the fabric store I see some fabric that I like and can't remember if I have anything that would coordinate with it.  So I made up this swatch ring that I can take with me and know exactly what is in my stash at home.

Mini Polaroid Necklace

This mini polaroid photo necklace is kind of my version of the old photo locket.  It was really easy to make and uses the same basic method as the photo magnets.  This would be a great gift for Grandma!
