Indepence Day

What a great day a day to celebrate America's 235th Birthday, but a very cute craft. A flag wreath to put out on the door to welcome everyone that see's it.

I found a great tutorial here from My Green Brea Cottage. I saw it and instantly knew I had to make it. It was so cute and so festive and perfect to keep up all summer long.

This is how mine came out. I used about one yard in total of fabric, I bought the 2 3/4 yards the blog called for but didn't use anywhere near that amount.

I made the "stripes" the same way by alternating 5 ties of red and white, and a total of about 20 blue ties. They were all scrunched together and I just love it.

Hope you enjoy it as well.

Adding the ties.

Finally on the door.

Summer time cookies

I saw these and thought they would be the perfect summer time cookie. You don't really want to bake in the summer because it's hot and sticky out, but whats hotter and stickier than s'mores, not anything I can think of.

So to honor that summer time fun how about s'mores cookies? I found this
recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything. And I really can't wait to bake them.
