Weekly Menu

Well hello there...

I am back!

Well as back as I can be.

My 31 days of something series starts on Thursday.  I've been slacking on both getting my series button done AND getting projects done and out the door.

So I'll be working really hard this week to getting all that done.

In the mean time, I figured I should post a menu...not for you guys really, but for me, to keep me on track!  I always do so much better with cooking when I know before hand what I am going to make.

So what are we having?

Monday - chicken wings
Tuesday - these pork carnitas
Wednesday - egg drop soup and fried rice
Thursday - leftovers
Friday - I think we will try this tandoori chicken
Saturday - eating out
Sunday - something simple, maybe just leftovers

Easy Halloween T-Shirt

Hey everyone!  I'm interrupting my little blogging vacation to join in with the gals with Craft Lightning!  I've come up with a super fun one this month and I am excited to share it!

I've been wanting to use a bleach pen on a shirt for some time now, but like most of my projects, it's been on the back burner.  I will have to say, doing this shirt was SO MUCH easier than I expected. So you ready to make your own?  Let me help you.

Bleach pen
T-Shirt (I found these to be awesome shirts, they are inexpensive, comfy and they don't have tags)
Cardboard or a piece of wood

Once you have your idea of what picture you want to have on your shirt, you just open up your bleach pen and go to town.  I also recommend using some sort of face mask or something.  I didn't and the bleach smell was pretty overpowering for me.

You could use a stencil too if you wanted, but I am better at free handing it so that's what I did.

When I was done, I let the bleach sit on the shirt for about 5 minutes.  I then rinsed it in the sink with my sprayer.  I would have taken a picture of that, but I couldn't hold the shirt, my phone AND the faucet at the same time...sadly.

After it was rinsed, I just popped it in the wash real quick and it was ready to go!  Seriously, the easiest project ever, and just think of all the possibilities lie in the knowledge of using a bleach pen on a shirt?  I am sure there are going to be MANY more in my future!

Don't forget to hop around and check out all the other super quick crafts in this months challenge!

Hey friends!  I just wanted to tell you all that I am going to be taking a blogging vacation until about September 7th, 2016.

I want to spend the last week of summer enjoying this time with my family and taking a week to get back into the swing of things once school starts.

See you soon!!
