Note: Please check the CDC Website for the most current Recommendation Regarding the Use of Cloth Face Coverings. You can also find their basic instructions for a single layer CDC recommended elastic mask here.

This project has not been tested and while I have made every effort to follow the guidelines provided, this mask is not proven to effectively protect against transmission of germs. Please continue to practice social distancing and stay home whenever possible.

It has been amazing to see veteran sewists and beginners alike, come together (virtually) to sew face masks for their communities. There are so many great tutorials out there right now but since people are using what they have on hand, I thought it might be useful to see the easy way that I made some masks with bias tape.

Hey guys, I’m dropping in with 10 Amazon Prime Gifts You Can Get Right Now.

Looking for goodies for some bunny special? Better hop to it. Due to demand for at-home deliveries, Amazon has prioritized delivering essentials, which makes 2 day delivery less reliable. I had a few fun gift ideas that I had wanted to share with you so I double checked that they can make it in time. Phew, I found them! Plus I added some other great gifts that help make time at home a little more enjoyable. Of course, double check delivery dates for yourself when you click.

 

Unstable Unicorns Game This game! My three kids have begged to play it daily since it arrived two weeks ago. It has become a really fun part of our family routine at home. We love it so much that we plan to surprise Gordon with two of the expansion packs for Easter. He is going to be so excited. (Amazon Affiliate link – thank you!) (more…)

Heart Shaped Tomato Galette Recipe

This is a Valentine’s Day recipe, but you can go ahead and make it in a circle shape and eat it any time of year. The parmesan crust is so buttery and fluffy, and the tomatoes burst with flavor on a bed of caramelized onions and cheese.
Folding into a cute heart shape was a fun way to make it a Valentine’s Day recipe, and just made me happy.

Fingerprint Cactus Valentine: Easy DIY Valentine’s Day Card

DIY cactus valentine

I’ve mentioned that bad puns are one of my favorite things about Valentines day (and in life.) Since cacti are one of my other favorite things, here are some sweet little pokey cards that bring together a few of my favorite things. If you were to tie one of these around a bottle of champagne and put Jaime on a plane with it, that would pretty much put all of my favorite things together. Anyway, here are some cute prickly valentines that you can make if you have paper, a fine point marker, a green stamp pad and a finger.

Basically you dip a large fingertip (I used pointer) in the inkpad and make the bottom pad of your cactus. Then a small fingertip (the pinky perhaps) and make the rest of the cactus. Kid fingers would make this even more adorable. Next draw a little pot and some funny words. You don’t need to be a calligrapher to make this work, even just block letters will be perfect.

Leave all your pals a note or tie one around a small potted cactus for your bestess and mostess.
