Do you pin stuff on Pinterest and never do it? Yeah me too! So I decided to join a group of ladies on Youtube who are doing Pintober. You try out a new pin every day in October. Here is my first one for a hand scrub. It is really a good one I have used it several times since making it.
We tried this yesterday and the whole family loved it! I originally saw a video of someone making it and she said she got the recipe from a blog, but that blog no longer exists so I am going to share my version of the recipe here since I have had so many requests for the recipe.
Pillsbury pizza crust (whack the can version)
3 Apples (we used granny smith)peeled and sliced thin
1 tsp Sugar
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 cup Flour
1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Butter
Spread the pizza dough in a pizza pan and bake for 7 min at 400 degrees.
Mix apples, cinnamon and sugar together then put on pizza. Add crumb topping on top of apples and bake for 15=20 min. I covered the crust with foil after 15 minutes and cooked it for another 5 min.
Serve warm! You could add some vanilla ice cream when serving. Here is the link to the video where I originally saw this made: Fall Desserts
I have been looking for a few new jewelry storage options for my bracelets and necklaces. I have a smallish jewelry box and didn't really want a bigger one......so I was on the hunt for some other options.
I found this awesome shelf and hanging storage piece at TJ Maxx. I am using it to store some lotions on top and jewelry on the bottom.
Now the fugly to fab project. I found this wooden pedastal at Goodwill for $3.00....it was ugly stained wood, but I saw the potential and spray painted it the minute I got it home(impatient DIYer so no before photos....sorry). I used my favorite color Heirloom White to make it FAB!! The following week I was in a different Goodwill and found another one I might have squealed when I saw it on the shelf. So now I have a matching set to put on my dresser. I am using the to store my bracelets. I love that I can see them and don't have to dig around. I am wearing all my jewelry more now too!
Finally started my Spring cleaning! I made a list of projects I wanted to get done and decided to start with my mud room. I am so grateful that we were able to add a mud room space when we did our home addition several years ago. It is right off our garage and is the way we mainly enter our home. I decluttered, straightened and reorganize the whole room.
Here are the before pictures!
(sorry for the poor quality they are from my phone. I have a new camera on my wish list)
And the after.....ahhhh so much nicer!
We each have a basket to store items like keys, sunglasses and wallets. Pegs for purses, backpacks and sport bags.
We each have a basket or drawer in the closet for our hats, gloves and scarves.
I love walking in there now that it is all organized and clean! Off to the next space in my home to Spring clean....our game room!
My craft area is in a small hallway at the top of our stair well upstairs. It is a perfect little spot that I am so lucky to have but it needed some tweaking.
It had become a dumping ground for all sorts of stuff. I wasn't able to use the area effectively any longer and it was irritating to look at each time I passed it.
I am keeping it real with these before photos......
So tell me I am not the only one that has areas of their home that are a hot mess!!! And here it is now.....ahhhhhh so much better!! I have actually used it several times since cleaning and reorganizing it!
Spring cleaning has begun around here. Trying to take it one task at a time and not get overwhelmed by all I want to do this Spring!
