• Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

    "Colorado and Wyoming are America’s highest states, averaging 6,800 feet and 6,700 feet above sea level. Utah comes in third at 6,100 feet, New Mexico, Nevada, and Idaho each break 5,000 feet, and the rest of the field is hardly worth mentioning. At 3,400 feet, Montana is only half as high as Colorado, and Alaska, despite having the highest peaks, is even further down the list at 1,900 feet. Colorado has more fourteeners than all the other U.S. states combined, and more than all of Canada too. Colorado’s lowest point (3,315 feet along the Kansas border) is higher than the highest point in twenty other states. Rivers begin here and flow away to all the points of the compass. Colorado receives no rivers from another state (unless you count the Green River’s brief in and out from Utah). Wyoming’s Wind River Range is the only mountain in North America that supplies water to all three master streams of the American West: Missouri, Colorado, and Columbia rivers." Keith Meldahl Happy one week anniversary, you cuties.

a painted teapot diy

IMG.jpgThis oh-so-lovely and oh-so-easy DIY is another great idea that I saw within my InstaCraft book.

Although the time that it takes to complete this project is roughly 35 minutes, 5 minutes are dedicated to doodling, while the other 30 minutes are all done in the oven. Why can’t all crafts be this easy? If they were, I would be able to post one everyday for my fantastic followers!

IMG_3.jpg IMG_4.jpgDraw a design on your teapot. Place in the oven for 30 minutes at 350°F. Remove, let cool, and begin steeping!

IMG_5.jpg IMG_6.jpgIMG_7.jpg IMG_9.jpgEasy peasy. I loved this simple, yet unique project so much that I’ll be drawing similar designs on my plain white mugs so that I will have a matching tea set. I would also like to purchase plates from the Dollar Store and create my own patterns on them. I may end up drawing on all of the dinnerware in my house, as well as recreating every craft within this book! Sometimes, nothing beats having a giant wave of inspiration. Happy Wednesday!



    What a great idea and attractive design!
