DIY Felt Donut Treats

Valentine’s Day always reminds me of chocolates and sweet treats. This year I came across the cutest tutorial for felt donuts. These make a super cute display and they won’t add to your waistline!

All you need is some felt for the donut base & “icing”, fiberfill, thread & small needle, and beads for “sprinkles” & “nuts”.

You can find me on Pinterest, Instagram, & Facebook. Come say hello!

5 Simple Home Decor Ideas to Incorporate Pantone’s Color of the Year: Ultra Violet in Your Living Space

Hey friends, Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.

This year is starting off bright, bold, and full of color! Pantone released their color of the year and It’s Ultra Violet. I have to admit, it’s one of my favorite colors.

If you’re looking to refresh your decor for the new year, try these simple steps. These simple decor ideas allow you to update without having to fully commit to that color and they’re more cost-effective than say buying a “purple” sofa, or painting your entire wall “purple”. This way, if you want to change-up your decor again, you can do so easily.

I hope you found these tips helpful and I’d love to see how you change-up your decor!

My Family Dinner Favorites: Double-Cheese Chili (photo: kraft.com)

The Dimestore Gypsy

I hope you’re staying warm where you are. Here in Texas it’s probably the coldest it’s been in a long time!

Today I’m sharing this double-cheese chili from kraft.com. It’s perfect for these cold winter nights. I tweaked a few things to our liking and it was really good.

I  used 90% lean ground beef and seasoned it to my liking. After adding the remaining ingredients, I added a quarter cup of pace mild picante sauce (for extra flavor and veggies), a dash of garlic powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and hot sauce.

To serve, I added the cheese like so in the bottom and ladled a nice hot spoonful of chili on top. I also added a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped green onion. Add some Jiffy homemade cornbread and this meal is complete!

If you try this recipe let me know what worked for you!

Stay warm friends,

~The…
