I remember measuring everything accurately and trying not to spill anything. I believe my childhood cooking memories is the main reason I love to cook today.

From drab to fab.  D.I.Y.  Bistro Table & Porch Refresh with Mean Green.

I’m proud to be a Mean Green Product Ambassador which means I received product samples for this post.

DIY Recycled Travel Dog Bed Tutorial

Pet lovers, I have a DIY project you can make using things you probably have laying around your home. You only need 2 products besides your scissors and a measuring tape. Every spring I buy new pillows and what better way to recycle my old ones than with some cute and comfy dog beds? I’ve got some out of town trips coming up and while I usually take Peanut everywhere, he’s going to have to stay at a local kennel for about 5 days for one of them.
