I thought for sure the excitement of seeing that Stitch Fix box on my door step would have faded by now, but it hasn't! I still love seeing that box and can't wait to get that first peak of what's been chosen for me to try.
Not familiar with Stitch Fix? It's very simple. You fill out an on-line profile explaining your likes and dislikes, pay a $20.00 styling fee, and let your personal stylist do the rest. You choose how often you get shipments and you don't pay anything until you decide what to keep. You can choose to receive accessories too if you like. They have jewelry, bags, and scarves. You have three days to try everything on in your own home with your own accessories. Returning what you don't keep is easy, just put the items you are returning in the return bag that is provided with your order and drop in the mail. You pay no postage to receive or to return! And, the $20.00 stylist fee will be credited toward whatever you keep in that shipment. Plus, you get a $25.00 credit every time a friend decides to give Stitch Fix a try (must use your link). How sweet is that? Want to give it a try? Just click here to get started.
I get so excited when I see my "Fix" has arrived. I can hardly wait to get that first peek and then to try everything on. This is my 6th shipment from Stitch Fix and I am still hooked. Not that every fix is a home run, I don't expect all of them to be a 5/5 (5 out of 5 items kept). But I have received some great things and I want to keep them coming!
Okay, so I may have just lost my mind...I actually made my own bran flakes. You may be asking yourself why would I ever want to make my own bran flake cereal when I can just buy it at the store, duh! Well, for one thing I like knowing what all the ingredients are, another reason is cost, and finally taste!
The weather is hot and humid here this week. A cool, refreshing summer dessert is definitely in order. And what fits that description better than a Creamsicle Pie? Creamsicles, that classic popsicle that brings back childhood memories of hot summer days and playing outside till parents made us come in. Ahhhh...
I love my homemade fabric softener but wouldn't it be better not to have to use softener at all? Wool Dryer Balls eliminate the need for fabric softener or dryer sheets. To be honest the only reason I use a fabric softener is to help remove pet hair from our clothing, so that will be the big test for me. Wool dryer balls also cut drying time by as much as half!! Wow, now that's a big savings on the electric bill. And, they last for years.
This is my 5th fix with Stitch Fix and I still get so excited when I see that box on my doorstep. That famous box is part of the Fix experience. That's why you see so many users posting a picture of their box...it's exciting. Ahhh, the anticipation, the hope of a good fix, maybe even getting that one perfect piece that will be your all time favorite. ♥ The picture above is the next step of the experience. That first peak, that glimpse of color and pattern. You want to hurry and get the kids off for a nap or whatever you have to do so you can start trying things on.
Want something different, sweet, and easy to make? Well this just may be the thing for you. This recipe only has 3 ingredients and just takes a few minutes to make. This is some seriously good stuff! And it makes a great gift around the holidays for family, friends, or coworkers. We love Honey Grahams around here anyway, then add that buttery caramel sauce and pecans....yummy, just yummy.

Have you ever made your own laundry products? Well, if you're like me it may sound just a wee bit silly to you at first. Why would I make my own when I can just buy it?
There are so many great yard projects using clay pots. They can be stacked and / or painted to make a lot of really cute things. Many of the projects, like my Bird Bath Planter, use tilted pots. Very cute and I've been enjoying it for three years now. But I found I did have one problem, it is difficult to keep the dirt from washing out of the pot when watering!
