Recently I created some really sweet floral drawer pulls to put in my daughter’s room for the HP Create blog. These are flowers from my garden that I photographed and made printables from. You’ll just need a bit of mod Podge, these cute drawer pulls from Target, and my free printables (or take some photos of flowers from your garden).

I keep looking at my living room and I realize I’m a bit bored with it. I don’t necessarily have the budget to update it right now, but I think I found a few tutorial ideas that will help me out. I shared all of these ideas (from some awesome bloggers) over on the Better Homes and Gardens blog.

I’ve been eating a bit differently for the past 40ish days. No refined sugar, no flour, no grains, and no dairy. It’s basically been the hardest eating challenge I’ve ever had. I don’t even really eat that much sugar, but by day 5 of eating this way I was craving sugar like crazy. The super sad (mostly great) part about this lifestyle change is I feel better. I LOVE cheese (OMG, cheese), but I may feel better without eating it as much as I used to. Biscuits? Yeah, they’re so good… but flour makes me feel tired.
This diet/lifestyle change has meant I need to look at the labels of EVERYthing. It’s surprising how much processed food has sugar added to it. It’s so crazy. Even mayonnaise. SO, today I’m sharing my homemade mayo recipe that I’ve been making this past month. It’s surprisingly easy, and so tasty. I like to make aioli for my sweet potatoes with this homemade mayo.
(recipe adapted from Whole30)
- 1 cup of light olive oil
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon of mustard powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
- stick blender (you could use a food processor if you need to)
First, this is important: make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature, that’s important.
Place the egg, 1/4 cup of olive oil, mustard powder, and salt into a bowl. Use the stick blender to mix up the ingredients.
With the stick blender running, slowly add the remaining olive oil. The key here is to go SLOW. I basically add about an 1/8 of olive oil and mix, then repeat. If you add too fast, it could mess up the mayo.
After the mayo is blended and at a mayo consistency, add the lemon juice and mix with a spoon.
Seriously give this a try. So good and yummy.
Valentine’s shouldn’t just about celebrating your significant other. What about all those beautiful friends in your life? They deserve a shout out and that’s just what these Happy Galentine’s Day cards are for (I love Parks and Rec). Tell your lady (or guy friends) that they are special to you and you love them. I have two free cards for you today: “Waffles, friends, & wine. All I need.” and “Ladies celebrating ladies.” with the inside for both, “Happy Galentine’s Day”. You can skip the Galantine’s inside printable if you want to just print the outside card for any occasion. Side note: I also made a secret note Galentine’s card. You can find it (and download it) on the Cambria blog.
- white card stock paper
- straight edge paper cutter
- bone folder
- free printable Galentine’s Day cards (front and inside)
- two 4 x 5 inch envelopes.
Print out the free Galentine’s Day printable that I provided. This printable comes with a front and inside PDF, so be sure to check the “two sided” option when printing.
Fold the card in half, the long way. Use the bone folder to flatten down the edge.
Use your straight edge paper cutter to cut the cards to size. The final card measurements should be 4 inches by 5 inches.
Add this card to a treat, or just give it all by itself. Happy Galentine’s (and Valentine’s) Day to you and your friends!
P.S. I was paid, by Cambria, to create these Galentine’s cards.
