This is one of my favorite salads, especially since I have been losing weight on my Beach Body diet (woohoo!). I love putting fruit in salads! I just mix together:
1 1/2 cup chopped spinach
1 or 2 tangerine (chop the segments)
4 chopped strawberries
1/2 cup cold, cooked quinoa
10 chopped raw almonds
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
juice from 1 tangerine,
about 2 tsp of pear-infused vinegar
pepper and sea salt to taste

I made gifts for some my son's teachers. Because we all know how tough it is to teach middle school.
I traced graphics from The Graphics Fairy onto flour sack towels from Target.
I printed the reverse of the images onto embroidery stabilizer. The stabilizer has a sticky side so I stuck it onto the back side of a towel and then held it up to a light (either the window or a plastic box with a flashlight inside) and traced the lines with a Sharpie pen.
The more detail in the image, the more difficult it is. Also, if there are words, don't forget to reverse the image before you print it.

Here is a before and after of a drum table I found at the thrift store.
I painted it with Amy Howard chalk pain in Kembel, sanded the edges, rubbed it with stain and rubbed it with Annie Sloan furniture wax. I painted a little gold in the grooves, too, but it's hard to see in the morning light.

I recently went to a baby shower for a baby boy. Instead of playing games, we crafted. I couldn't finish in time, so I took mine home to finish up.
We each made a scrapbook page and painted a onesie. Here is the scrapbook page I did. It has the Bible verse "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Creator of the sun, moon and stars, who does not change like their shifting shadows." James 1:17
I used Paper Studio's Woodland Retreat paper, and I stuck the page in my sewing machine and sewed a border around the page and the frame.
Then I drew this little hedgehog from the paper, and embroidered the design on the onesie (Because I don't paint!!).
