Remake 7 {Pinterest}

Hey y'all!
It's been a while since I've posted my Pinterest creations!! Let's get to the good stuff, shall we?

1. Pretzel Bites ****
These were awesome!! Crunchy and salty on the outside....soft and doughy on the inside.


2. Braided T-shirt necklace *****
Easy Peasy. Fold a tshirt in half and cut 1-2 inch strips up to the armpit. Braid three strands together and there you have it!!! I can't wait to make more in different colors :)


3. Yearly Christmas Card Album****
I have SO many saved Christmas cards from the past several years that just sit in a box. This year I decided to use these free printables, a hole punch, and binder rings to make my own mini album. I can't wait to pull out previous years and do the same!


4. Homemade Sushi***
OK, so Matt really made this!! My roll turned into a big mess. Having a professional make them is so much easier and less time consuming (at least in my opinion)! Granted it still tasted great :)

I look forward to seeing The Hunger Games!
It comes out this weekend! Anyone else seeing it?!
The books were better than I expected. If you get the chance, do read the books first!!
(I linked up some reviews- it is PG-13- the books include violence and romance)

Sponsor Spotlight {Que Linda!}

Today I'd like to share with you my first ever Sponsor Spotlight!!! Whoo!!!
A place where I can "brag on" and ask questions of blogger friends in hopes that we can create new friendships within this wonderful community!! I hope that you enjoy this new addition to the blog :)


Without further ado, meet Janny of Que Linda!!

I came to follow her blog last October through a link party when I clicked on her awesome bedroom reveal!!! Que Linda (which means "How Pretty") is a blog full of wonderful sewing tutorials, crafts, home decor, food, and....just a little bit of everything! This girl has talent!!!

1. Tell me a little bit about yourself:
I have a wonderful husband, Brian, and together we have a 1 1/2 year old daughter that keeps us busy. My day-to-day life revolves around these two fantastic people and I wouldn't change it for the world. I studied Family Studies at the University of Arizona and one day I want to get a masters in Occupational Therapy- that would be a dream come true!! For now I enjoy being a stay-at-home mama.


2. When did you start Que Linda? Why?
I started Que Linda this last September after our family moved from NH to AZ for my husband to go back to school for his doctorate in optical engineering. It was quite the change of plans for our family. We thought about having me go back to work, but that idea never settled for me so I decided to stay home. I started my blog in hopes to make some supplemental income for our family. That sounds silly now since my reasons for blogging have changed so much. I've grown up so much from pushing myself to share my creative side with the world. I've also surprised myself with the stuff I've come up with. This has become an incredibly fulfilling hobby that keeps me sane while raising a little one.


3. What inspires you?
Pinterest, of course!! I'm amazed by what others have come up with. My daughter, The Little Lady, is also an inspiration. So much of what I make is for her.


4. List 5 of your favorite things at this moment....
*Aged wood- I'm obsessed over the pallet trend
*Paint- more specifically spray paint. It was the greatest thing invented since sliced bread.
*Gardening- my husband & I have been reading gardening books and articles for years and have yet to plant a successful garden. Perhaps this year.
*Going to the park- the weather is gorgeous right now in our neck of the woods.
*Chicken Taco Salad- I look forward to this on our menu each week.

5. What is your favorite project?
My favorite project so far is my fall wreath.  I had this idea of what I wanted it to look like in the end, but I wasn't sure exactly how I was going to pull it off.  I made it up as I went and miraculously it turned out just as I had envisioned it.  Seriously, I stared in awe at it for days after it was hung up.  

6. Any project disasters?
Project Disasters?  Oh yea!  Just yesterday I was organizing some of my sewing scraps and stumbled upon remnants from previous projects.  I found several pieces of massacred purple knit fabric from the ruffle skirt I made for The Little Lady.  I originally planned to make myself a maxi skirt with a bubble on the bottom, which was pretty much crazy.  I was almost finished with it when I realized it was just plain ugly so I made something completely different.

7. How do you spend your time when you're not blogging?
I love to hike and go on walks with my family.  Reading a good book is much lower on my to-do list since I started the blog, but I still enjoy it when I get the time.  

8. Anything else?
Thank you Jamie for having me over to share a little about myself! 
*Thanks so much for sharing!! :)




These are just a few of (my favorite) the projects at Que Linda:





Thank You Janny for taking the time out to share with us a little about yourself and your blog!!!! Please stop by her blog, leave a comment, and let her know you came over to say hello from Life as a Pepin!!! I am being featured over on her blog today as well :)
