Banana Bread

Thursday, May 11, 2017 11:16:00 AM

Banana Bread Banner

Don't forget we carry baking supplies! One of my all time favorite things to bake is banana bread, everyone in my house just loves it.

I gathered all my supplies Next I gathered all my ingredients,
  • 6 brown bananas
  • 3 and 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 3 table spoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts(optional)
I turn on the oven and set the temperature to 325 degrees so the oven can pre heat while I measure and mix the ingredients. The banana bread will need to bake for 1 hour and 20 minutes.

Banana Bread 1

I always like to start with by measuring out my dry ingredients, that way if i need the measuring cup again for the wet ingredients ill be able to use it. I measure out all the dry ingredients into one bowl and whisk then together.

Banana Bread 2

In another bowl I measure out all the wet ingredients and add the bananas into the bowl as well. Once all the wet ingredients are in the bowl I mash the bananas and stir until smooth.

Banana Bread 3

Next I poured the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mixed thoroughly together with a spatula. Once thoroughly mixed, I added the walnuts and folded them into the batter. (this is optional, if you don't like or are allergic to nuts, do not add them, this recipe still tastes great without nuts)

Banana Bread 4

Finally I take my 4 pans and cut the parchment paper to fit in to the pans. The parchment paper never seems to fit perfectly, but that's okay. There will be wrinkles and excess flowing over the top of the pans.

Banana Bread 5

Pour the banana bread batter into the pans, about 1/2 to 3/4 full. The batter will rise when it cooks so make sure not to fill your pans to the top. Once your batter is in the pans you can cut the excess parchment paper off that is hanging over top.

Banana Bread 6

Now is the hard part, waiting for it to bake! Place them in the over on a middle rake and bake for 1 hour and 20 mins. Set your timer and pull them out of the oven with oven mitts when ready. Now is the fun part, the eating! Yum, definitely the best banana bread ever!

Wire Wrapping

Thursday, May 11, 2017 11:08:00 AM

Wire Wrapping DIY

Wire wrapping has always intrigued me. There are endless designs and ways to use wire. You can create necklaces, bracelets and rings just to name a few.

Today I decided to wrap up a ring. It only took about 15 minutes and then I had my own custom made jewelry!

Wire Ring Wrapping Before

  • 1. First, choose the shape/design of ring you want to make.
  • 2. Cut off the desired amount of wire required (I used about 8 inches(
  • 3. Grab your pliers and start wrapping.

  • 18-gauge wire
  • Pliers
  • Beads (optional)

  • Wire Ring Wrapping After

    Children's Santa Christmas Ornament

    Monday, December 5, 2016 10:18:46 AM

    Children's Santa Christmas Ornament

    Christmas is fast approaching and making Christmas ornaments is a good way to occupy some time in between enjoying the snow outside!

    As always I like to gather all my supplies Children's Santa Christmas Ornament Step 1

    First, I cut out my shapes, a mustache, an oval for the nose, a hat, a smile for the mouth, and a strip for along the hat. For younger children, which my son is, I like to pre cup out all the shapes, then he can just stick everything together. If your children are older and your comfortable with them using scissors let them cut out the shapes.

    Second, I started with the mustache, gluing it on, just below the centre of the paper plate. Below the mustache is where I stuck on the mouth, and then the pink oval ontop of the mus tash in the middle for the nose.

    Children's Santa Christmas Ornament Step 2

    Fourth, I moved on to adding on the white hat strip, and drew on swirls with a red pen. Next I added the red hat just above the white strip. And to finish off Santa's hat, I added a white pom pom to the end of the hat.

    Children's Santa Christmas Ornament Step 3

    Fifth, I cut two small pieces off the white pipe cleaner for eye brows and glued them on. Next I added 2 googley eyes just below the eye brows

    Children's Santa Christmas Ornament Step 4

    Finally, I cut a piece of string and tied the two ends in a knot and glued it to the back of the paper plate so the Christmas ornament can be hung on the tree!

    Christmas Book Advent Calendar

    Monday, December 5, 2016 10:17:03 AM

    Christmas Book Advent Calendar

    This Christmas I wanted to try something a little more educational and much healthier for my son, then the regular Chocolate count down Advent Calendar. Before bed we always read books, so why not have a new book each day until Christmas?! It will get him excited about reading as well as getting ready for bed.

    Materials First I went to a local thrift store and bought 25 children's books.

    Christmas Book Advent Calendar Step 1

    Second, I wrapped each book individually with wrapping paper.

    Christmas Book Advent Calendar Step 2

    It's very simple and easy, but it turns out it is very exciting for a three year old! My son approves!

    Christmas Book Advent Calendar Step 3

    You can either number each book and have them find the correct number for the day, or leave them all just normally wrapped and let your little one pick one each night before bed. The wrapping is time consuming, and it does get ripped off pretty quickly, but the happiness on their little faces is worth all the time! And it may just save you a dentist trip in the future.

    Felt Snowman Ornament

    Who doesn't love Homemade ornaments? It's time to skip the store bought ornaments and time to get crafty with your children this Christmas! Felt seems to hold up better, than construction paper and it looks nicer and warmer for the holiday season.

    As always I like to gather my supplies first Felt Snowman Ornament Step 1

    Second, I like to pre cut out all my shapes from the felt. Snowman from the white felt, Scarf from the red felt, hat and arms from the black felt, nose from the orange felt.

    Third, I used a small hole punch to punch out 3 black circles for the mouth, and a larger hole punch for the 2 green buttons.

    Felt Snowman Ornament Step 2

    Fourth, I started to glue on each of my shapes. The scarf first, then the hat, then the arms, buttons, eyes, nose and mouth. All with a hot glue gun. With younger children you can use glue dots or tape even.

    Felt Snowman Ornament Step 3

    Finally I punched a hole in the top of the hat, so I could tie a string through the top of the snowman. The string is so it can be hung on the tree.

    Felt Snowman Ornament Step 4

    There you have it! A cute little felt snowman ornament. By the way, we have such a wide variety of different felt, you can make your snowmen a little funkier with a patterned hat or scarf if you wanted!

    Snow Flake Candy Cane Ornament

    Monday, December 5, 2016 10:14:28 AM

    Snow flake Candy Cane Christmas Ornament

    There is always, always candy canes around at Christmas time. You see them everywhere!

    I gathered all my supplies, First, I made 5 heart shapes out of the candy canes.

    Snow flake Candy Cane Christmas Ornament Step 1

    Second, I took my little bows and attached my twist ties to the bows at the centre of the twist tie

    Snow flake Candy Cane Christmas Ornament Step 2

    Third, at the top of the candy canes, where they connect to be a heart, I twist tie a bow on to connect the two candy canes together. I repeated this 5 times for each heart.

    Snow flake Candy Cane Christmas Ornament Step 3

    Fourth, I twist tied each heart to each other at the bottom of the candy canes to start to form a snowflake like shape out of the candy canes. I used twist ties, instead of gluing the candy canes directly to each other, so that the candy canes can still be eaten later on.

    Snow flake Candy Cane Christmas Ornament Step 4

    I attached an extra bow to the middle of where the candy canes all meet to fill in the open space. Snow flake Candy Cane Christmas Ornament Step 5

    Finally I tied a string to the candy canes so that it could be hung on the Christmas tree. All done! They turned out pretty good, I think next time I would use the little candy canes instead of the large ones.

    How to Make a Bow

    Wednesday, November 23, 2016 11:27:45 AM

    DIY Bow Banner

    Christmas is near and presents look so nice when they are wrapped with a nice bow!

    You can wrap your gift first then tie the ribbon and bow to it or you can just tie the bow to it and that is the wrapping, such as for a stuffed animal.

    Materials First pick out your ribbon, one with a wire along each side seems to manipulate better when creating a bow. I chose a white and gold thicker ribbon. Next pick out a couple smaller thin ribbons that match. I chose a gold, white and red ribbon. It's always nice to have at least 2 small ribbons.

    DIY Bow 1

    Now for making the ribbon, cut a long strip off of the roll of ribbon. In your right hand hold the ribbon, leaving a few inches on one side and the rest long on the other side. With your left hand make a small loop. Bring the ribbon to the middle where your right hand is still holding the ribbon and twist the ribbon.

    DIY Bow 2

    Your right hand doesn't move, it just holds all the ends of the loops. Repeat making another loop with your left hand, going in the opposite direction. Your ribbon will be almost making an S shape back and fourth, with twists where the right hand holds the loops. Repeat, until you have at least 5 loops, if you want a fuller bow, you can make more.

    DIY Bow 3

    Once you have your loops, take one of your smaller ribbons and tie it where your right hand has been holding the loops.

    DIY Bow 4

    Once tied, you can use your fingers to move and manipulate the loops so they look like a bow.

    DIY Bow 5

    I then tied the bow to a stuffed animal and tied the smaller ribbons on as well. To make the small ribbon curly, I used a pair of scissors and slid the ribbon along the side of the scissors. The faster you move the ribbon the tighter the curl will be, and the slower, the looser.

    Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Muffins

    It's getting colder outside and nothing compares to baked goodies! Anything with oatmeal I consider healthy, so you don't have to feel guilty about eating them! As always I like to gather all my supplies, And my ingredients,

    Finally, I filled each cup of the12-cup muffin tin 2/3 full with the ladle. I find it much easier to use a ladle then pouring straight out of a big bowl. Then I baked then at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. 25 minutes later and I had delicious muffins!

    Mr. and Mrs. Claus Mugs

    Wednesday, November 23, 2016 11:20:33 AM

    Santa Mugs

    As always, I like to gather my supplies first, Santa Mugs 1

    Let's make Mr. Claus first.

    I started off with his belt, I used the mod podge and brushed on a square.

    Santa Mugs 2

    Next I poured on my silver glitter, letting it sit for a few minutes and dabing the glitter with my finger to move it around to stick on the modpodge. Then I tapped the top of the mug with my hand, making the excess of the glitter fall off. I used a cotton swab, to wipe off the excess glitter that hadn't fallen off just by taping.

    Santa Mugs 3

    Next I mod podged the bottom half of the mug with a paint brush, all the way around the mug, keeping my top line as straight as possible. Then I sprinkled on red glitter and repeated the dabbing and taping of the mug just with the silver belt square, to shake off the excess.

    Santa Mugs 4

    Finally I painted on the belt, just above the red glitter all the way around the mug also, with brown acrylic paint. Mr. Claus is done! How cute right?

    Santa Mugs 5

    For Mrs Claus it is a similar process.

    I used mod podge to make a heart neck line and a line continuing around the mug. I then used Silver glitter and poured it on the mod podge, letting it stick, dabbing it with my finger and tapping the excess glitter off.

    Santa Mugs 6

    Next I made two buttons just below the heart shape neckline with mod podge and silver glitter. Like the other times, I tapped the mug to shake off the excess.

    Finally I mod podged the bottom under neath the silver glitter line, and added red glitter. Again, I dabbed and tapped off the excess glitter.

    Santa Mugs 8

    There you have them! Mr and Mrs Claus mugs! They would be great gifts for, mom and dad, grand parents or a newly married couple. It would even be cute to try on wine glasses if you prefer wine over coffee!
