How Tuesday: On My List

28 Feb

Hello, everyone! This week I wanted to share the How To’s that I’ve seen floating around the web that are now on my list to try one day. Enjoy!

Paper Star Lantern Tutorial

I always get a little skittish when I see paper near an open flame, but these little lanterns were so cute I’ll deal with it.

DIY Jewelry Organizer

I love love LOVE this idea. I’ve been looking for a smart way to hang my jewelry for a long time, since I have a hard time putting things back into drawers. I especially love this organizer because it would be so cheap to make. They sell those organizers at Bed Bath & Beyond, and you know how those guys give away 20% off coupons. Imagine this with some pretty paper put in each cubby as a backing…

Curry Carrot Soup

I’ve been eating soup like a madwoman this past month. So simple to make, and you can make tons more than you need and eat off of the leftovers forever. A and I have been in love with the sweetness of cooked carrots, and you know I’m on board with anything that included curry.

Homemade Oreos

As soon as I saw these on Pinterest, it was all I could do to not rush out to the store and make some right that minute. I may have, if I hadn’t been on my lunch break. Heart shaped or regular, I know A would just die if I made some. Hmmm….these may have to be made sooner rather than later…

Seen any great tutorials lately? Want to plug one you’ve done? Leave a link in the comments so we can check it out!

    All of these appeal to me — especially the oreos, but I’m going to pretend I didn’t see it 🙂 Paper lover, I am, I think I may try the lanterns. They are super-cute for sure and could be a lot of fun to decorate with in the summer time. I see them on a table outside surrounded by lemonade and fruit 🙂

    Thanks for sharing these, Christy!
    Happy Tuesday!

      Ah…I can see the lazy summer days coming already…I need to get my teaching credential so I can have some of thirst.

    I’d be happy to help you taste-test those oreos…

      Oh, I’m SURE! 😉 Trade you for some chocolate chip cookies!

    Oh my, I’ve made homemade oreos, and they were amazing!

    But! Making them also made me terribly depressed because I actually saw first hand just how much crap went into them and how terribly bad they were for me. Do you have any idea how much lard goes into the filling?! It’s awful! This was one of those cases where ignorance really is bliss.

    I still love oreos though 🙂

      I totally know what you mean! Luckily this recipe didn’t call for lard, but there’s nothing nutritionally redemptive about them either. I love Joe-Joe’s from Trader Joes. No lard and real vanilla beans!
