Net Goodness, for You

 

duct tape flowers

I made these super easy duct tape flowers for the girls for Valentine’s Day, and then we all made a whole bunch more together. They are adorable and colorful in a vase, and even cuter as pencil toppers. You can find a plethora (inside joke for any Three Amigos fans out there) of tutorials on YouTube.

I make tons of bread, and seem to gravitate towards the same (fantastic) recipes, so I thought I’d share them:

For our big-batch sandwich bread, I usually use this one. The only alteration I have made is that I divide the dough into five loaves, instead of six. Makes for bigger bread. I also like Mandy’s Daily Bread recipe.

For crusty soup bread this recipe is the yummiest and easiest.

This guy is recreating iconic art on his whiteboard. I love how temporary his masterpieces are, and that idea excites me.

Apparently, I have been living under a rock, because I had never seen this video (which has been viewed roughly 55 million times). I have Jane to thank for dragging me out from my dark underground hiding place. I am now obsessed with this band. OBSESSED, I tell you (and so is my whole family).

Imagine not having to wait on hold when you’re trying to reach a customer service rep? That’s what the Fast Customer app promises. I haven’t tried it yet but it’s going to make the next dreaded call I need to make a little less dreadful.

Dana is hosting her ART*FULL Sketchbook course, starting in April. I’m signing up. Anyone want to join me?

My Love for You recently did a twitter interview with Jenny Hart. Her embroidery art (especially the portraits) is out of this world. I must be feeling the thread love lately because just a few weeks ago I made a collection of thread art on Pinterest. Hmm.

Happy clicking! Happy weekend!

    Whew, I need some more bread pans. You and Mandy both make large batches. I use thefrugalgirl.com for my whole wheat bread. i also use her cheap cheap french bread recipe all the time. I have a grain grinder so I’ve tried soaking my grains and used passionatehomemaking.com’s whole wheat bread. I need to try mandy’s recipe, it looks awesome (just need more bread pans).

    Love the girl’s flowers and that thread art is pretty amazing! :-)

    A twitter interview is an interesting concept. I don’t use a recipe when I bake bread, I need to check out yours, and expand my horizon! :)
    PS love the thread board!
