The Ultimate Strawberry Shortcake: Using white chocolate pudding!
A fabulous recipe to make with strawberries and some angel food cake. Melt in your mouth goodness. 

I bought some angel food cake and two containers of strawberries the other day, got home, and realized I had absolutely no idea how to best make strawberry shortcake. My mom used to combine the two, add some whipped cream, and be done with it. But I figured there might be an even better recipe so I did a little searching. Most of the recipes required ingredients that I didn't have.

How to Make a Children's Artwork Display

July 13, 2015

How to make a children's art display.
Instructions on how to make your own children's art display to showcase you child's artwork. With a little spray paint, some wood, glue, and clips, you can make one too!

My sons are now 1.5 and 3.5 years old. We're starting to get a LOT of artwork, especially from our gym daycare, and I wanted somewhere nice to display them. Our fridge is already a hot mess with all of the random magnets that I put on there... I don't even know why I save all of these? They don't even hold anything up there.

This is a pretty simple and affordable project to complete. I actually had most of the supplies already- although I think I have a quarter of Joann's and Lowes' inventories in my sewing area.
