A little bit of Whimsy…been on a roll

Been on a roll with these wreaths. Just started making them a few days ago. I revamped my "Who Ville" one 

Made this base too- it is for a friend and she can not decide which one to use for the inside part. What do you think? 






Next I made this for a "customer". Her last name is Holst and she thought of this darling wording

This one was made for my friend's Pet Grooming Shop. Her walls are very green! The name of her place has the word Blissful in it!

She wants these colors in her shop for Christmas, so working on this from some left over mesh she used last year. Found these darling ornament bulbs in green and purple. It is hard to find those colors for Christmas this year

A little Bit of Whimsy!! My Peppermint Twist Wreath

HI friends, 
I have been missing in action! I have Fall Decor to show you and some recipes but have been so busy with my new biz lately (Younique). I was missing being crafty and just had to figure out how to make these wreaths. I can't believe how easy it was. 
This is my first one! I LOVE making these but boy this is an expensive hobby! Cost me $65 and that was with everything halfoff at Hobby Lobby.
Hope you enjoy my Peppermint Twist Wreath!

I added a few more do-dads- you can see in the photo below. Also, from the angle it looks lopsided but it is not.

 I typically bring salads to school, and they take me forever each night to prepare.  I found this idea on Pinterest long ago,  but never bothered to make them.  Then the other day I decided to give it a try. 
 Wow! This first one I made was incredible! 
I made it like an Italian Anti-Pasta Salad. I used a Pint Sized Mason Jar that I had around the house. 

I layered them in this order:
Paul Newman's Own Oil and Vinegar Dressing- MUST go in first! 
Salami and Black Forest Ham
Red Peppers
Black Olives
Grape Tomatoes
Pepper Jack Cheese
Romaine Hearts Lettuce- LAST

I brought it to school and all I did was shake the jar and pour it into a bowl. It was so good and so much! I read to use Quart Sized Mason Jars but I used a PINT Size and I could not finish it all! 

Today I went to Hobby Lobby and found the Wide Mouthed Pint Sized Mason Jars. I came home and put these salads together:

Breakfast in a Jar Salad:
Hard Boiled Egg
Grape Tomatoes
Romaine Hearts Lettuce
Unsalted Roasted Sunflower Seeds

And then the next one:
" Mixed Review"
Grilled Chicken
Grape Tomatoes
Black Olives
Feta Cheese
Romaine Hearts Lettuce 

* The only "Processed" foods I eat are Salad Dressings. For this one I wanted to use my Marie's Peppercorn Asiago dressing but I noticed my jar said expires on 1-17-14 so  I threw it out. I then used some bottled Hidden Valley Ranch instead ( yuck) and "built" my salads.  After putting them together I noticed that bottle said expires 1-3-14. Bummer, if I am going to eat expired dressing, I would at least prefer the other one!  I REALLY need to make my own dressing!  I count my "carbs" as I layer my jar. 

I hope you enjoy. I do not know where the original idea came from or I would link it. Remember to put the salad dressing first and lettuce last and just shake before serving. Also, I did not use a Quart Jar as suggested in everything I read, but I used a Pint sized Jar.

This is one of my favorite "regular salads: 

My Favorite Salad: Romaine Hearts, Avocado, Bacon, Feta Cheese and Grape Tomatoes with Paul Newman's Own Oil and Vinegar- YUM!

Hope you enjoyed these. I can't wait to make my next batch up on Sunday for the week! My favorite salad I make is a Buffalo Chicken Salad with Bleu Cheese, Bleu Cheese dressing, Purple onion and lots of celery. I can't wait to try it in a jar! And here is a link to my Buffalo Chicken Salad: 

Close up of the Italian one and the Buffalo Chicken Salads

NOTE- the one with bacon and eggs did not turn out well. Off to make the Buffalo Salads and the Antipasta ones for this upcoming week. 

Edit- adding some more on 4/27/14  These are Chicken Caesar Salads and more Antipasta Salads. I have also made Greek Salads. The Chicken Ceasar, have Marie's Caesar Salad Dressing and then black olives, grape tomatoes, feta cheese and grilled chicken.

Cheesy Pepperoni Peperoncini Bites!

I love these little low carb snacks but I eat them as a meal- now not all of them, although I easily could!

Ingredients: Pepperoni, Peperoncini's and Mozzarella Cheese. I found this very thickly shredded cheese at Walmart and it is really nice to make these cups with. Adding the peppers is my own personal "twist" to these delectable bites!

Spray a Muffin Tin, and put in Cheese, Pepperoni and I added a slice of Peperoncini to give it a kick! 

Ready to bake. Set your oven at 400. I put them in as it is put them in for about 12-15 minutes, depending on your own oven, but watch closely!
