We celebrated Ivory’s 1st birthday on Sunday. She is such a sweet, fun girl and loves to make the entire family laugh.
Here are some things I want to share this week:
Out of eggs and living from your pantry? Try making this eggless chocolate cake.
These springtime butterflies made from felt and bobby pins for a girl’s hair, sewn together with only one stitch, look pretty simple and fun!
Make your own multigrain sandwich bread made from 7-grain cereal. I’ll have to check out the 7-grain cereal at Winco and try this one.
Check out some of the most famous bonsai trees in the world. I have wanted a bonsai tree since I was a child and first saw them in the Japanese garden at The Huntington Library. (Number 2 and number 9 are my favorites). This week’s grocery ad from Vons (a Safeway affiliate) has Bonsai trees starting at $7.99, if you’ve ever wanted to have your own. I think I will have to see what they have!
This pleated wrap skirt looks pretty simple to make. I love that it is adjustable. Now I just have to pick a fabric so that I can make this for Winter.
We’re having high winds this week, so I’m working on some sewing projects instead of working out in the garden. So far I’ve made a pair of pajama pants for Ivory from the sheet set I bought on Saturday, redone the elastic on one of the skirts I bought for Winter at the thrift store to make it fit her, and sewn the ribbon from a broken barrette onto another barrette.
What are you making this week?
