Today we are keeping with the same theme by showing you how to make ice coffee concentrate the easy way, and then how to use it to prepare your perfect cup.

Fabric Friday

Fabric-Friday-on-Pretty-Prudent

I pretty much melted when Fabricworm sent over this absolutely adorable Emily Isabella for Birch Organic Fabrics, Happy Town, Happy Houses fabric. I mean, those faces! Come. On. This is one of those fabrics I would definitely get cold feet about cutting, but then again, I think it could make the cutest backpack. If you think you’re brave enough to handle more cuteness where this came from, check out the complete Emily Isabella collection. I dare you.

Wanna learn how?
