In the midst of my hectic schedule since I updated last, I of course made some time to bake and sew! To start, I recently found a recipe online for peanut butter button cookies. I immediately thought they were beyond adorable and brilliant! They were so simple to make and will now be a design I use whenever I make peanut butter cookies!
Here mine are just before going in the oven! So cute!

I never took a picture of mine post-dipping!
The day after baking I decided to start a project for my friend Dawn. She's moving out of the house and into her first apartment! So exciting! I know how challenging it is to decorate apartment walls that can't be painted! I wanted to go stock up on little things you forget about needing like towels and trash cans, but that's not cute and I can't afford it! So I grabbed scraps from my fabric bin and started cutting triangles! I made three different length strands of bunting for her bedroom or living room. I wish I had placed them more sporadically, but I'm still pleased!
I also decided to attempt to make my very first pot holder! I will eventually sell them on etsy when I get better. I was easier than I thought, minus the trim. When I first purchased the fabric I knew I had to use it for something in the kitchen!
Last thing I did since my last post was color my hair! Nothing too exciting or out of the norm I know. I've just been struggling with it lately. I have been bouncing around with hair colors for years and always find myself going back to red. However instead of the intense red, I did an orange-copper red. I loved it and so did everyone else. I've never had so many compliments from strangers about how well it brought out my complexion and asking if the color was natural. I fell in love! So I've kept it for the past seven months. However, I usually change by now and Brent's been asking me to go back to blonde. So I decided I was going to gradually go back and I purchased copper blonde color to start. However, I think because of the amount of permanent hair color previously it did nothing! I sadly am going to have to strip it if I really want to go back. I just don't think I'm ready!
It looks darker/lighter depending on the light.
There's the blouse and dress I purchased yesterday too!
