Soup Bowl Cozy! Thank you Happy Hour Stitches!

I made these cozies, with pattern courtesy of Happy Hour Stitches. Menards has these cute dry soup packages which I included in my gift to friends and co-workers. They are pretty easy to make. These are microwaveable.  Place your bowl of soup with cozy into microwave and heat. You never have to touch the hot bowl.

Cheap Outdoor Halloween Fixture

I purchased these plastic pumpkin pails at Target for $1.00 each. I cut a slit into the back of the pumpkin down to the bottom and then made a larger opening. (see picture). You may have to adjust yours differently depending on the fixture. I saw this idea on Pinterest of course.

Dorito popcorn seasoning

My family likes to put seasoning on their popcorn and I found this recipe that is really good. I ordered the cheddar cheese powder from Amazon and I'll link it below. The shaker shown doesn't work that well and I plan on putting the Seasoning in a mason jar and just spooning it out.

Personalized Rocks

I have been really enjoying painting these rocks but having difficulty finding them. Does anyone have   a good place to buy large flat rocks? I don't want to take them from the beach.

My largest painted stone so far.

This stone weighs 1 pound 3 ounces and took me 3 hours to paint.  The stone was found along the shore of southern Lake Michigan.

Mosaic Birdbath

To make these birdbaths, purchase a terra cotta pot and larger terra cotta saucer in your choice of size. I painted the pot and outside of the saucer with acrylic paint and sprayed with a sealer. I designed the middle with glass pieces, grouted and then sealed with a grout sealer. Glue the saucer to the pot with E6000 glue.

State Silouette Sign

I saw this project from a YouTube channel I follow called "Garden Answer." We had some scrap wood around the house so I gave this project a try! I like the way it turned out.

Miniature Gnome Garden

Its a rainy day and I was repotting some plants. I have been wanting to make a fairy garden and accessories were on sale for 70% off today at Joanns. I took the plants I had around the house and put this together. The only difficulty I had was the house sinking. I placed an old plastic butter container underneath to support it. Fun Project! I am hooked on a You Tube channel called Garden Answer, and she gave me the inspiration.
