Happy Wednesday everyone!
I'm doing a repeat post here. 
Sort of. 
Remember the camera scarves
I'm happy to say that I sold out of my listings on Etsy. 
So I wanted to share a sneak peak of the new scarves I just put up.

What's for Dinner?

Today instead of crafting -- I'm cooking.
Most days I'm not into cooking. 
I'd rather bake any day than cook.
However, on occasion I like to try my hand at a new recipe. 
The easier the better. The less ingredients the better.
So when I ran across a few really simple but delicious looking recipes on Pinterest I had to try them out.

 Here's the menu for today.
And a couple links in case you want to try them for yourself. 

Who doesn't love a 3 ingredient only crock pot dish?

  Seven Layer Salad 
This recipe was from my grandmother. It was always a hit at church and family dinners.

 Sour Cream and Chives Mashed Potatoes
Thank you Betty Crocker. You just made my mashed potato making a whole lot easier!
Garlic Bread
This came from the local bakery. Walmart bakery that is. It looked wonderful!

 Oreo Fluff
I was really craving some Oreo pudding. This was even easier and just as amazing. Then again -- how could you go wrong with Oreos?

Hair Ties. Hair Bows.

It's been a rainy day here in Tennessee. 
Honestly, I just don't feel like being crafty on a rainy day. 
I'd rather be lazy and maybe read a good book or watch a movie.
However, I did want to feel somewhat productive today, so naturally I started browsing Pinterest.
That's the productive thing to do. Right? 

 I did come across these cute hair ties that I've been wanting to try. 
It just so happens I had picked up more elastic ribbon the other day, so I had a nice assortment ready and waiting to try out.
If you're looking for something cute, easy, and inexpensive -- this is it!


 I love how versatile these ribbons can be. You can tie knots on the ends or bows. Or you can make super cute headbands for your little ones!


Here are a couple links with easy instructions.
*HINT* Cut the ribbon with pinking shears to eliminate the frayed ends.

 I decided make some headbands for my niece, then the rest will be as thank you gifts for my Etsy customers!

Thanks for stopping by!

Camera Strap Scarves

Want to know one of my weaknesses?
I love them! 

I know this isn't exactly scarf-wearing weather right now, however, on occasion you can find lightweight scarves to wear even throughout the spring. 
Sometimes in my thrift store hunts, I am able to find all sorts of unique scarves for great prices! 

I will admit, I don't just buy them to wear anymore. I buy them to make into lovely little camera straps. 
Just type camera strap scarves (or click here) into your Pinterest search bar and see what I mean.

So this has been my latest DIY project. 
You can make these straps out of fabric scraps, but I found a scarf to be much faster. It was suggested to me to even try men's ties. Definitely going to try that one next!

P.S. If you're interested in any of these straps, you can find some of these in my Etsy shop!
