Homemade Hot Fudge Sauce

Have you ever made homemade hot fudge sauce? If not, you MUST try it. This recipe is only 5 ingredients and so quick to make.

It's so thick and delicious. I love it warm enough to start melting the ice cream a bit when I pour it on.

Last week, I bought a jar of chocolate sauce for a recipe. I got a good brand, not that chocolate syrup that parades as an ice cream topping. I'll admit, I did it for the convenience. 

I cannot tell you how disappointed I was.  Nothing can compare to real homemade chocolate sauce.

How to Make a Face Mask without Elastic

Making your own face masks is easy. Beginning with just a single piece of fabric and an old t-shirt (to cut up for the ear loops), you can sew your own double layer face mask.  

Many DIY face masks have bothersome elastic to hold them in place. Elastic can be rough and irritate your ears. So I decided to figure out how to make a face mask without elastic.

I decided to use a knit fabric in place of the elastic. It is stretchy, so much softer and much more comfortable.

There are just 5 seams to sew and I'll walk you through the entire process from start to finish with step-by-step pictures AND a video tutorial. Even if you've never sewn before, you can do this!
