Today I’ve got a special treat for you guys. I have a DIY project that comes from a very close friend of mine. She was working on it this weekend and she was kind enough to send me some pictures so I could share it with you guys.
Hello, my lovelies! Today, I have a project to share with you that I am super duper proud of. This was actually pretty easy and it turned out so great. Talk about maximum yield. Anyone could do this project.
Welcome back to The Creative Fox Den, everyone! To get everything back up and running, I’m finally writing the post for this table that I made before Cana came. Bad news: I don’t have all the specs for this table as I was in a bit of a rush putting it together. Good news: it’s so so easy that you can definitely put one together yourself.
Last night I decided to reorganize my whole kitchen. I went grocery shopping and came to the shocking realization that nothing in my kitchen was in the right place and I HAD to reorganize it. I switched up my whole pantry, cleaned out my fridge and my freezer, the whole nine yards. Afterwards, when everything was finally in its place, I still had to make dinner and I promised myself that I wouldn’t order a pizza (have I mentioned how much I LOVE pizza?). So I made this. It’s easy, it’s healthy and it’s delicious. Make it tonight.
It’s Friday! Yay! This week went by really quickly for me and not just because Monday was a holiday here. Probably because it was my first week in my new position so I’ve been learning lots. It’s pretty great. You know what else is great? This lighting fixture!
Is there anything better than going to sleep on Sunday night knowing that the lunches for the week are made and ready to go? Probably, but not much. It’s such a weight to be lifted off your shoulders what with everything else that life throws at you. I’ve gotten into the habit of doing it and when I don’t have time on Sunday to do it, it really does throw off my week. So, I’ve wrangled up some of my favourite go to recipes for you.
What’s this? Two DIY posts in one week? Inconceivable! Well, here’s the deal, I’m doing all my Christmas baking this weekend – that means that you’ll be getting lovely recipes all week long next week. As such, it’s only fair that you get extra DIY posts this week. And these snow globes are just too adorable. Aren’t snow globes magical? I think so. But then again, maybe I’ve watched The Santa Clause too many times. Either way, I love the sparkle and the Christmasness (I’m making this a word) of them. Want to make some of your own? It’s easy!
Who doesn’t love the holidays? Christmas really is the hap-hapiest time of the year. I start celebrating in my heart on November 1st (the second that Halloween is over), but apparently this is a little crazy to people like my husband who can only get into the spirit after December 1st. As such, I’ve held off on Christmas posts up until this point but from here on in, it’s all Christmas all the time. That means holiday recipes, Christmas movies, fun decor projects and DIY Christmas gifts. Lucky you.
So, up here in Canada the weather is getting a little colder, the days are getting shorter and the desire to do anything at all when I get home from work is getting smaller and smaller. You know what that means? It means that it’s time to bust out the slow cooker, the best small kitchen appliance of all time! Nothing is quite as satisfying as coming home after a long day (especially when it’s dark and cold outside) to the smell of deliciousness and your food being hot and ready for eating. Just writing this makes me happy and what I made in my slow cooker this week made me even happier. Pot roast. Two of the most delicious words of all time.
Do you have a hankering for some pesto? Well, then you’re in luck because I have a recipe that will keep you well stocked for quite a while. Pesto is something that I love yet, oddly enough, I’ve never made. Last week I got garlic scrapes in my organics food basket delivery. What are garlic scrapes, you might ask (I was asking that when I got the basket)? They are the flower stems that garlic plants produce before the bulbs mature; they are the young and tender stem of garlic and they are delicious!
