I know I am a slacker and will owe three projects this weekend -- I was unfortunately laid off from my job a few days after my last post - so been updating the resume and getting other stuff done around the house as well as spending some time with my kids =)

Week 3 & 4 .... Yummy! - Crescent Pepperoni Roll Ups & Crack Bread

Sooo yea I forgot to post last week so I did two 'projects' today - with Pinterest being my inspiration for this blog I can pretty much do anything =) So for dinner I made two recipes I found on Pinterest...Crescent  Pepperoni Roll Ups w/ Marinara Sauce on the side & 'Crack Bread'....

Here is a before pic of the Pizza Bites/Rolls

And here is the after of them on my plate w/ the crack bread ... having 4 adult males in the home at the time I was not able to take a picture of it as it came out of the oven because my husband began to cut it up immediately & serve LOL They were both SO good!!

Here are the links to the original posts...

Week 1 of 52...Ta Da! Tile Coasters

Well here they are! My first Pinterest project for my 52 week project.  Purchased all of my supplies yesterday: Michael's for the glue (made my own mod podge) scrapbook paper,felt & acrylic sealant (oddly enough 'mod podge' brand lol)... Home Depot for the tiles & did this quick fun project over the course of the day - I think if I had done it all at once would have taken about an hour & a half with drynig times. Found on pinterest and original tuorial is from The Cottage Home

Supplies:4 square tiles from your local hardware store (4.25" x 4.25")
4 pieces of scrapbook paper (3.75" x 3.75")
4 pieces of felt (3.75" x 3.75")
Mod Podge
Sponge brush
Glue (i.e. Fabri-tac or other strong adhesive)
Clear acrylic sealer

Go to Cottage Home link above for a full tutorial. ;)

Finished product:

Oh and when I explained to my daughter what I was doing she wanted to do 52 projects too! So below you see HER first 52 project a pretty wooden heart necklace with decals and beads.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! ~kbr
