I found my surface in the Hobby Lobby clearance section for $1.99. I take a stroll down the clearance isle every time I go to the store. You never what kind of deals you might find! The scrapbook paper I used is also from Hobby Lobby.
The first thing I did was mod podge my scrapbook paper onto my surface and then sanded any excess paper that was hanging over.
Next, I glued on my shamrock with hot glue and E6000 both. This shamrock was from my shop last year but any shamrock will work.
To finish off my cute little shelf sitter, I added a jute bow with a button in the center.
What do you think? Easy, budget friendly, and cute, yes please! Will you be giving this one a try?
I decided to start making my own egg bites instead of paying $3-5 for two of them! Who’s with me? Now, don’t get me wrong, if I happen to be traveling and I am at a Starbucks I may still splurge on some of their egg bites. But, for the most part I like to make these to have on hand and save a few dollars!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
These egg bites are super easy to make! Simply cook your bacon and sausage(I like to cook mine in the air fryer) and combine all the ingredients. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray. I like to use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to fill each one. You can always alter the recipe if you are wanting to make more or less egg bites. This recipe makes 12 muffin size egg bites.
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
I typically put half of them in the refrigerator and the other half in the freezer to save for later. Enjoy!

The sign I am using for this project is one I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby. I always take a stroll down the clearance isle just in case I can find little signs like this to use for my crafts. I used a sanding block to sand off the a majority of the black letters.
I then painted the inside of the frame with my antique white paint to cover up the remaining black so it wouldn’t show through once I mod podged my printable down.
Next, I cut down my printable to fit inside the frame and used mod podge to adhere it to my surface.
I then took some jute rope and glued it around the inside of my frame to give it a more finished look.
Last but not least, I added brown buttons topped with smaller pink buttons in all four corners of my sign.

This recipe is super easy and a definite crowd pleaser! I typically use half a bag of beans if I am making this for a get together but you can adjust the amount of beans you use accordingly. I then add in my liquid. There is a couple different ways you can do this, both of which taste delicious. You can either use the seasoning packet that comes in the package of beans and mix with your water or you can use beef broth. The beans will absorb a lot of liquid so just be aware of that. I add approximately 5-6 cups of water/broth to my crockpot along with the beans, green chiles, and seasonings.
You can either cook this on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8 hours depending on your schedule. Once the beans are cooked through, you can either mash them or use a blender to make a smoother, creamier dip. I usually like to mash mine so there are still some pieces of the beans. Next, add in your sour cream and cheese. Again, use your personal preference for the cheese. I usually use a mixture of shredded cheese and old dutch smoky chipotle queso dip in mine.
Once the cheese and sour cream are incorporated, the dip is ready to serve with your favorite tortilla chips! Enjoy!
