I am always searching for measuring cups and/or spoons. I think I have about 5 sets and none of them are complete. I am always in search of the perfect organization for my measuring cups. So when I was perusing Pinterest I came upon this brilliant idea from Family Handyman and decided to give it a whirl…with an IC spin on it of course.
I’m not gonna sugarcoat this. I have a problem. It begins and ends at Sephora. I have too much make up. Too too much. Here’s the thing..not only do I love make up, I am relentlessly fickle.
i actually had the energy to do a project around the house! there are tons of projects to do but clearly i tackled the bathroom first. actually it was the closet :) which was fun but nothing to post about. here’s the before pic in the bathroom. i’m an organized person but just didn’t have the time, and husband was not happy about that section. it is right in front of the main mirror in the bathroom so there’s no escaping it’s craziness. so i made the super long field trip to ikea and bought these simple yet useful canvas organizers. they’re 2 for 3 bucks. i wanted to decorate them somehow since white was a little boring. got some felt and glued the words on them. hair=head bands, wraps, etc. skin=lotions, perfumes, face=face wash, lotion, neck=necklaces, wrist=bracelets….you get the point :) here’s the after!
Email Answer: Inspiration Wrangling? Q: I am wondering how you keep all your decorating ideas and images organized. Do you keep all the magazines and catalogs with good design ideas (if so how do you organize them?). Do you cut out images? Do you keep everything electronic or scan in images?
Now that we have found a solution for organizing your girls hair bows , what are we going to do with all the little barettes, bobbers, and hair elastics you have floating around…? Use a craft box. A couple of years ago I was fed up with trying to find a matching barette or pony tail holder when I needed it. So I bought a craft organizer box and used it for our hair acessories.
Yes, they are everywhere. Yes, I have posted on them before. And yes, I am still smitten! How could I not be?
When I eat at my parents house, my mother always brings out a small jar of fried garlic. These little morsels of heaven have a very distinct garlic flavor (more mellow than raw garlic, but more bite than roasted garlic). They also add a nice crunch to "kao thom" (a thai rice porridge), noodle soup or Hainan chicken. I asked my mom for the recipe to share with you. There are two versions of this recipe. The images below show the dry version where the oil is strained out.

I was Googling for some Scrabble tile inspiration the other day and stumbled across a blog called deep fried kudzu . Being the southern girl at heart that I am, the name instantly resonated with me and I found myself deep into the depths of a delightful blog, compiled by Ginger. She has an array of projects that I want to try out such as “ Picture Marble Magnets “, “ Embellishing Canning Lids ” and “ Making Night Lights with Shrinky Dinks “.
