Remember as with any cookies, to use fresh ingredients, especially fresh butter (I hate fridge taste in any of my cookies) and, remember to NEVER grease your cookie sheet, unless of course you like flat, crispy, thin as paper cookies. I like mine fluffy and soft! Happy baking!

Okay, we have way to many hair clips around here (somehow I find myself wanting more ;)) So I had to come up with a place for all of them! I started with a foam poster board from walmart.
Ok, I am really NOT a great seamstress, if I can make this anyone can! I was TERRIBLE at taking pics of this project! I bought my daughter this tank for bed (she loves owls) and grabbed and extra in a size 16 (they cost the same, but you get LOTS more fabric) I layed the tank out, and set her doll's tank top, shirt, and pants on top. I traced around them with pen, making sure I traced it a little bigger to allow room for a seam.
Okay, so this year I had a real dilema. NONE of the colors/decor in my main family room/kitchen/dining area matched traditional Christmas colors, and would NOT look good with a forest green tree... Soooo I bought a skinny inexpensive tree that would fit my space, with plans to flock it myself. Instead of heavy flocking spray (which I actually couldn't even find) I found this sno blower spray at Hobby Lobby. It says it is not for heavy flocking, but to "dust" artificial pine in white, I bought 3 cans, and got to work!
I sprayed the bottom level first, then put the middle on, and sprayed it, then the top, and let it dry for an hour before bringing it in. (I am funny about things that smell toxic, or have an odor, and this stuff is non toxic, and really doesn't smell other than a faint smell of soap once it's dry, and only if you stick your nose right on it) :)

Okay, so you start with a wire hanger, pull it open to form a circle, and bend the hook over on top. Next we added 6 equally spaced pipe cleaners, (it only shows 5 on mine, I hadn't realized it needed 6 yet)
Okay, so now you add the mesh, we used the wider kind, but I'm sure it doesn't matter! Just twist the wire pipe cleaners around equal bubbled sections.

I have been needing a way to display/organize my earrings for awhile now!
This is what ive been working with....
3 drawers of this! What a complete NIGHTMARE to try and find a match!
I found some on pinterest i liked, but a lot of them i saw didnt have a holder for studs AND dangly earrings. They were either one or the other, So i just put both into one.
I bought an 11x14 open back frame from hobby lobby ($15)
Picked out some fabric, and got some foam.
I already had some chicken wire from past projects,
and then just found a piece of scrap wood and got out the staple gun!
i measured out the foam and board to the size i wanted.
layed the foam on top of the board and wrapped the fabric very tightly around both pieces.
(sorry i forgot to photograph this part!)
i then stapled the chicken wire to the back as well.
i also added some hot glue to the back of the chicken wire part just for reinforcement.
And here she is!!
