My Etsy Favs

I am going to start a new feature called {My Etsy Favs}.  As some of you know, this blog was born a few years ago thanks to my very own Etsy store.  I made hairbows, ruffle socks, pillowcase dresses, and all kinds of cute little things for your cute little girl.  In 2010 I had to shut my store down because of tendinitis in my wrist.  Oh the pain was just unbearable. 



While my store was open I had the chance to meet some pretty {AMAZING} artisans/crafters.  While some of them moved on from Etsy I will still be featuring them because they are just that awesome.  Since the closing of my store I have also found some new stores that I LOVE.  I hope you enjoy this feature and find some cool things for yourself, your home, your family and your friends.  I feel it is important to buy handmade and support other women.

My first featured store will be posted next week.  I would love it if you would pin something from the featured store on Pinterest and share the store with your friends on Facebook and/or Twitter.  Show some love for these hard working artisans!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her.
Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good! I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
