The easiest chocolate chip cookies ever

Quick and easy recipes are right up my alley - mostly because I usually don't have time for anything else. These chocolate chip cookies are truly the easiest ever. And, according to my daughter, just as delicious (though she may be a bit biased as she loves anything with a hit of chocolate...).

The Hot Air Balloons Bag


Hello, and welcome. today I'm showing off a bag I made a couple of weeks ago for one of my daughter's friends.


The Hot Air Balloons Bag (with tutorials)

I found the hot air balloons fabric at a craft store and knew I had to buy it. It was just a scrap (big enough for this bag and maybe another similar one) and they didn't have more, but I still brought it home with me. When a couple of days later my daughter handed me the invitation for a birthday party for a little girl turning eight, I knew I had made the right decision.

Because, yes, how cute is that fabric?

Lace edged candles

I've had two candles - one blue and one yellow - in my crafts closet for a long time. Initially I bought them with the intention of creating a nautical decor with them. I even wrapped the lower portion of the candles with rope, but the whole think became too tick and not at all practical. 

Last weekend I finally decided I either tossed the candles or finished them. And since I was not going to toss two perfectly good candles, I ripped the rope and created a lace edging instead.
