I have been wanting to make something like this for awhile...and I finally did it!! I don't love to cut things out of 2 inch wood and 1 inch wood doesn't stand on it's own very well...so here is my solution. I just nailed the letters to the wood piece with my nail gun!

Blog Swap with Ready Set Create

I have LOVED Ready, Set, Create for a long time, I think I have become a blog STALKER!! I am so honored to blog swap with her. I love her super cute ideas..and the Idea below is a MUST!!

Hey there Curly Q Crafters!

I totally excited that Brooke is letting me take over her blog today!

Here is a little about me. . .
I'm Aleesha. My husband and I recently moved to a small town.
So to keep myself busy I craft and I blog at Ready, Set, Create!

I blog about all kinds of stuff, home decor, homemade jewelry, yummy treats, anything that I feel like creating.

Here is one of my latest projects. . .

I've made l.o.t.s. of necklaces lately, so naturally now I need to make a place to hang them all!

So here is what I came up with.
Cute, easy, functional with lots of space to hang as many necklaces as I'd like!

In case you're interested in making one yourself, here is how I made it.

I started with a board, a 1x4 about 12 inches long.
Some fabric cut larger than my board
Hooks - I used 3 double robe hooks that i found at Walmart
Mod Podge

First I covered the board with Mod Podge and then smoothed my fabric over the board. When it dries give it another coat over the top.

For the back I just folded over the fabric and Mod Podged it down.

Once it is dry, position and screw in the hooks.
And there you have it!

Look how much room there is to hold so many necklaces!
And no more tangled messes!

And there you have it!

Thanks again Brooke and thanks to all your wonderful readers!

Nothing like GARDEN fresh salsa!!

Oh it is time...for SALSA!! I love to make salsa...probably because it requires no cooking so it never gets burnt. However I did cut my finger with the knife, go figure.

I love this salsa I have looked and looked for a good recipe and I have finally found it so I thought I would share

30 tomatoes
2 green peppers
2 onions
4 cloves garlic
4 jalapenos
1 chili
3 big jims
garlic and or onion salt to taste

make sure you cut open your peppers and take all the seeds out...it is warm without the seeds. My lips are tingling as we speak. I put everything in my chopper and cut it all up and mix it together and you are done!

Freezer Summer Squash

So I planted 3 plants of summer squash this year. Yes I have summer squash out my ears. I think my husband is getting sick of eating it. Can you blame him? Squash every night for a week now. So I decided to freeze it. It will be great for cooking with and using for baby food when needed. I found this awesome site Pick Your Own with step by step instructions and PICTURES too! We all love pictures!!! Check it out if you are looking to save some of your summer produce from the garden!

Do it yourself GLITTER TOES!!

So I don't know how you are but I LOVE to pick at things. I had my toes done all nice and pretty to go to Bear Lake and it took A LOT of self control to not pick at them all week. But I finally gave in the day after I got home and picked them ALL off......GEEZ! So I did my own again very very cheap.....so I can pick all I want.

All I did was first paint them with green nail polish, I then add Martha Stewarts glitter on the wet polish. Once they were dry I painted over the top with a clear nail polish and there you have it!! TADA!

Cooking Blog

So I am NOT a cooker! It is a standing joke at my house that everything is BURNT, and it was inhereted from my mom. See to us there is only one way to cook something and that is fast and on high.

I think that once you have eaten burnt food for so long you become hooked on the flavor you would call burnt. However I find it a nice touch now.

So since you probably will never get any cooking advice from me I thought I would share a yummy blog.

After all who wouldn't love to eat muffins that taste like donuts. Check out her blog here

So we just got back from a week in Bear Lake! It was so much fun. My husbands family all rent one condo and we just hang out, eat junk food and drink LOTS of DR PEPPER by the lake.

One day a storm rolled in the water was so beautiful with the white caps.

Bear Lake is so so beautiful they turned out colorful, so since I haven't been able to craft lately I thought I would share some of my photos!
