Kitchen Pantry Reveal !

Kitchen Pantry Reveal !
I {finally} completed my pantry makeover! I mentioned in June {wow it took me a while to finish this} that I was going to redo my kitchen pantry here. I ripped out the old shelves, painted, stenciled, installed new shelves, and organized all my goods. Here's a before/after shot: I will definitely be writing a couple more posts about the project explaining the steps... but for now I just want to sit back and show off my final reveal! The organization makes me so happy! I even took out a shelf {originally had 5, now 4} but since everything is organized and has its own spot, I ended up with way more room! I'm even able to store my most frequently used craft supplies, my camera and its accessories so they're always in arms reach. The containers are from Home Goods for $7 and I used some twine to add a piece of slate I had spray painted with chalkboard paint to label what's inside. The gorgeous stencil I used is from Cutting Edge Stencils. Everything has a home... {Happy Dance}! One last look: Related:  Organizing

Crochet School Sorry I've taken so long to post this very last post of the crochet school series. Would you believe me if I said I don't want it to end? haha That's not the real reason, although it is a little weird to be writing the last crochet school post (for now). I've just been busy designing new patterns and crocheting my butt off for the craft show I'm in next month, Deluxe. I was also waiting for all of you to have time to put in questions you want answered in this post. Let's cover those questions first: Carly asked "I think you mentioned that you can weave in ends with a hook. Hi carly, Since you're making a blanket, I would probably just try to find a bigger needle. Nia asked "I understand how to make the corners when seaming horizontally but what about vertically.. do we skip the corners and just seam the sides? Since you only do one corner from each side when seaming horizontally, you'll pick up those other two corners when you to the vertical stitches. Don't be afraid to ask for help!

Organizing Made Fun Freezer Cooking with Slow Cooker Recipes Welcome Pinners! Please be sure to check out my Real Food tab at the top to find more slow cooker freezer meals! Also, I love to see everyone excited and sharing on their blogs and social media when they use my recipes, but please be sure to link back to me and do not publish the entire recipe! Thanks! Like I mentioned in my post the other week, the last time I did a big cooking day, I had a big ah-ha moment. Although, I had a blast with Lauren, it was logistically very difficult to accomplish. So this latest big cooking day, I did it by myself and only did slow cooker recipes. Basically, all I was did was chop vegetables and assemble ingredients. Even with doing it this way, it was still a 3 hour affair, but during this time I was able to finish all the cooking AND the cleaning. I chopped all the vegetables with Penelope in her Learning Tower before nap, which was really fun. I just dumped the veggies into the gallon sized ziploc bags, then added the meat, then added the spices.
