Grow Your Blog

 Hello!  I'm participating in the Grow Your Blog hop that Vicky from 2 Bags Full is hosting this week!

This blog is the blog where we copy things that people have already done.  These are things that we can't take original credit for ourselves.  The posts are about things we've seen in cookbooks, kids' craft books, magazines, websites, etc. that we'd like to try.  We do the stuff, then we post about our results here.

Pretty basic.

This is my least busy blog.  I post randomly.  I don't always have the time to do arts and crafts, sewing projects, etc. that I've seen.  But when I do have the time, you'll see them here.

Here are some of my favorite "copy-cat" posts that we've done:

I'm always looking for new things to try.  If YOU have a post you'd like me to "copy" (if you think I'm capable!!) I'd love to try it and link back to you.  Leave a link to the post you think I'd like in the comments section.  Thanks!

Thanks for stopping by!  I look forward to becoming bloggy friends.  Have a great week!

I Give This Teriyaki Chicken Recipe 5 Stars!

This blog is where I talk about things that I've made copying something from a magazine, book, website, etc.  These are usually things I haven't come up with myself.   I was looking for something to do with some chicken thighs I had bought and found this recipe on
It was super delicious.  I will definitely be making it again.  I made it exactly as it was listed in the recipe except that I didn't have ginger so I used a ginger tea bag!  Ha!  Improvisation.  I'm going to use the recipe again with diced chicken breast to make it like the Teriyaki chicken from the mall  that I used to love.   I think brushing the sauce on the chicken every 10 minutes for an hour was kind of tedious, but it really did turn out good.

 You can find the recipe here:

 What's your favorite way to cook chicken?

Toilet Paper Tube Owls

I get emails from Crafty Kid Creations and somewhere between all the clicking in these emails I came across this cute toilet paper tube owl project.  
The inspiration originally came from the blog
 You should go check out their cute owls, Floot, Boot and Toot.

Future Fashionista made these owls for her bedroom.  We had a decorative candle holder that was in her room that we don't put candles on, so I was looking for something cute to put up there.   These little owls are cute and go with her owl theme room.

These are made with toilet paper tubes, tape, muffin liners, paper, marker and glue stick.  Future Fashionista made these all by herself.  She had definite ideas of how she wanted them to be!  The polka dot one I tried to make.  The nose on the polka dot one is a foil pumpkin I had in my cupcake liner bag.  I made slits in the tube to insert it to a "beak" shape.  You can find  the original directions at the "Amelie's House" link above.
