D.I.Y. Headbands

 Made these for a co-worker's birthday who loves bows and headbands. These are so easy to make, all you need are ribbons, buttons, store bought undecorated headbands, arts and craft gadgets/tools and glue gun. Oh and your creativity "juice" hahaha!

First headband.

You decide on the size of the ribbon/bow. Just make sure that the top ribbon will be an inch shorter than the bottom ribbon. Also cut an inch and a half of a ribbon to wrap and secure your bows. Glue gun the bows to the headband.

Nice.... ;)


7-UP Biscuits

One of my Pinterest  "Recipes I Want To Make" . I was intrigued not only by the amount of ingredients needed for these biscuits but also with what ingredients these moist, flaky biscuits called for. I will be making my biscuits this way. I will bake and brown them a bit more and maybe add cheese the next time i make them.



2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7-up
1/4 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 450.
Cut sour cream into biscuit mix, add 7-Up. Makes a very soft dough.
Sprinkle additional biscuit mix on board or table and pat dough out. Melt 1/4 cup butter in a 9 inch square pan.  Place cut biscuits in pan and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.

Yes, heart shape biscuits!!! but of course!!!! ;)

These are moist, flaky and tasty!!

Love, love them ;)


Welcome to my first "Arts and Crafts" blog :) If you haven't read my about me...yup, aside from cooking i love me some DIY's as well. ;)

I love, love personalized and unique gifts. I got the idea from  Design Sponge . I love the concept, i have to make it. I made one for my niece who just welcomed a very pretty bundle of joy. I thought, what a great way to document the arrival of the baby. A one line journal is perfect for a busy mom to write down important or unforgettable memories and something i know they will enjoy in years to come.

An inexpensive and easy project and yet it'll be a priceless gift for sure!!!!

I bought the materials from the dollar store and spent $4 total.

Box - $1
 6 packs of Index Cards (3 in. x 5 in) 2 for $1
*buy 1 pack colored index card
Ribbon -2 pieces (cut 12 inches length)
If you don't have a ribbon find anything to tie or bundle the index cards.

Love the box!

I'm telling you...everything worked out perfectly!!!!  FIT TO A TEE ;)

You will need the ribbon for these reasons 
1) To bundle/tie the cards per month
2) To indicate the current month
3) To make it easy to pull out the cards.

Like i mentioned, i like personalized gift so i opted to have the labels handwritten. 
Divide each months with the colored index cards.

Write the month and dates on each cards.
Organize the cards according to months and dates.

Viola....project done!!!!
