1  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Monogram wreath on: August 28, 2012 07:51:39 PM
A little housewarming gift I made for my Future mother in law. Smiley

The monogram is wrapped in twine, the roses are burlap (the purple dyed and the yellow spray painted). I also added an uncolored burlap bow and loop for hanging to the top after I took the pictures.

I love the combination of so many different prints. Gorgeous!
3  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / wallpapering (crappy) Ikea furniture on: September 10, 2011 07:53:07 PM
So, when my boyfriend and I moved in together (two years ago) we decided to keep his bedroom furniture, because I was moving right out of my parents house and had the same (very childlike looking) set I had owned since I was about seven. Anyway, this furniture is from Ikea, and while it's held up nicely, it is just very far from my personal aesthetic and I've grown tired of staring at it. We can't really afford all new furniture, so I'm thinking of ways to make it a little better. I'm basically planning on wallpapering the drawer fronts and the tops, and adding knobs.

The problem I'm having (besides never having wallpapered anything) is that the dresser and matching nightstands are basically particleboard covered with whatever that plasticy stuff that makes it smooth and shiny. Will wallpaper stick to a surface like this? Do any of you have any handy wallpapering furniture tips?

This is what the dresser looks like, and the night stands look exactly like a tiny version of it.

I've seen really cute ones done by attaching a window frame or an old ladder to the ceiling with chains and just using some simple s hooks.

This website has examples of those and some other cute ideas:

I made like 40 gallons of matzo ball soup, of course. And I made a really good cheesecake this year. I used ground macaroons and margarine for the crust. It was amazing. Usually I make a flourless chocolate cake, but the cheesecake was WAY better.

I made some peanut butter cookies that used part Stevia in the Raw and part Sugar in the Raw... They were pretty good. I got the recipe off the Stevia in the Raw website. http://www.steviaextractintheraw.com/Recipes-and-Tips.aspx

They have other recipes on there, but that was the only one I've tried.

My boyfriend would love this. Super cute!
9  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Homemade pesto pizza on: January 10, 2010 05:24:14 AM
My boyfriend loves pizza, so I made this the other day out of leftovers and things we had around the kitchen.

I used:
half a package of store bought fresh whole wheat pizza dough
6 tablespoons homemade pesto [I make batches ahead of time and freeze in 1 tbs size cubes]
1 leftover grilled chicken breast, cut into strips
a small handful of baby spinach leaves
2 medium sized mushrooms, thinly sliced
1 small tomato, thinly sliced
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

It was seriously amazing and took I think a total of like 15 minutes to make.

My boyfriend and I were just watching an episode of the Nanny where they were talking about bobka, and since he has no clue about Jewish foods, I promised him I'd make him some soon. This recipe looks perfect! Thanks for posting it!
