Easy Fabric Hot Pad - Beginner's Sewing Project

Learn how to make an easy fabric hot pad. This is a great project to teach kids {or any beginner} to sew. This is one of those projects that looks complicated, but in reality is quite simple to make. My 9 year old daughter made me one at 4H and I love it, so I had to share.  Although the fabric is woven and looks complex, once you learn how to set up the fabric, it is really only 4 straight seams and you're done.

4th of July Banner

I love decorating for the 4th of July. I made this banner using mostly supplies I had on hand - my favorite type of project. This banner is festive, fun and patriotic.

Dinner Menu Plan -Family Dinner Ideas - May

We're almost halfway though May and I haven't yet shared my menu plan. I've been working my blog a lot - just on back end technical stuff.  I've been slacking on sharing new ideas. Honestly, it will be a little slow around here at least until July. I have Trek, girls camp, and a family vacation in June. I will be gone for over half the month and the other half I will be either packing, unpacking or recuperating!

So without further ado, here's this months 4 week menu plan.

Family Dinner Ideas

This month's tip: Plan certain types of meals on certain days. For example, I like to have sandwich type meals in the spring/summer. So I will pick a day, say Wednesdays, that will be sandwich day and we'll have hamburgers, pulled pork sandwiches, chicken sandwiches and Italian Subs on Wednesdays. Sundays we have roast or chicken with mashed potatoes. Friday we usually have some type of pizza. Tuesday's are easy meals. This really helps me - I can think of 4 meals within a category and then fill in the rest.
