The great tasting-Not so great Looking Dessert!

What makes a dessert awesome?

How about one with fruit to make yourself think its sorta healthy?
That has alcohol in it?
And you probably already have all the ingredients?

Really, what more could you ask for?

If you will excuse my last minute camera phone picture, I'll tell you how to make this yummy tasting (not so great looking) dessert!

First slice a banana in half "hot dog style". Lay it on a cookie sheet and spread some butter and cinnamon and sugar on it.

Then broil it, or BBQ it, until the skin starts to peel away from the banana.

Place it in a bowl and pour Kahlua over it (most of the alcohol will burn off because its hot, but I would maybe skip this if you are serving to kids. Go for chocolate drizzle instead). You can also sub the Kahlua for Baileys or any other dessert liquor of your choice. 
Top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. 

Ta-Da!! Deliciousness!

Cigar Box Ring Organizer

My lovely friend Ali (doesn't she have a great name??) asked me to make her a ring holder. She had them all on a rod/stick/pole thing (technical terms) and she hated having to take off all the rings if she wanted one at the bottom. So after her explaining the gist of what she wanted, here is what I came up with:

 Isn't it fantastic? I was pretty sad to give it to her. 
(I have enough stuff to make me one too so don't feel to bad for me)

Read More and Ill tell you how I made it!!

Facebook Giveaway!

I've giving away one of my scarves on my Facebook page!

All you have to do is leave a comment on the photo! Super easy.

This is one of the cute scarf accessories that I sell at all of my craft fairs and boutiques. I also have them for sale in a few local stores. 

They are great for dressing up a T-shirt and jeans or even a dress. I wear mine in the summer with a tank top or in the winter with a sweater. 

If you don't win but would like one, feel free to email me and I can send you photos of my inventory or make you a custom one. 

Coffee Bag Pillows

Remember my awesome sofa I got? Remember how I told you I was going to show you more on my pillows that I made for it? Well here it is!  

I know you've been waiting on the edge of your seat.

I showed you some Pillows that I wanted to make for the sofa when I first got it. And I finally got around to doing it after I covered the Chair that I found...intheALI

So here they are!

 One side I used the coffee bag and on the other side I used the same fabric from my chair.

 I think they turned out so great. I love them.

 I think it coordinates well with everything in the room.

By the way........ I saw the fabric that I used in an article in Better Homes and Gardens. Man I'm just such a great fabric-picker-outer. :D
