Some Day Dogs Will Rule The World

And when they do, those dogs are going to tell you never to listen to Vixen. Always follow the rules.

Remember a bit ago when I went all creatively crafty on you and did those scented pinecones? The look beautiful. Really pretty.

Scented? Not so much. Okay. Not really at all. Now you have ALL LEARNED AN IMPORTANT LESSON with me. When the instructions call for cinnamon essential oil, they really mean cinnamon essential oil. No matter how pricey it is. I still put them in an old basket I had and trimmed the setting off with some Indian corn I had picked up at the pumpkin patch.


Does anyone have any cinnamon scented candles I can borrow? This has also brought to my attention how badly I need to paint my walls. So it’s still a win-win situation.

On another creative juices flowing note. Are you a plus size woman who likes aprons? Then you should check this out. I surprised myself with my pattern adjusting abilities and created this beauty as a special request for someone. This is the second plus size custom apron I have created. The first was a 3x and according to the recipient “it was like I was there and you made it for me.” This one was a more difficult, fitted style and is a size 24-28. I am very proud of how it came out. Be sure to check out ApronFrenzy for style and color ideas and then send me a message if you would like me to create one for you. (please excuse my chair pretending to be a mannequin-I’ve put a real mannequin on my Christmas list.IMG_4288) See how lovely and fashionable you can be in the kitchen without having to be Barbie-sized?

  5. Ugh all essential oils are crazy expensive! Good try though! 😀 Maybe I’ll just pick up one of those bags at Walmart. I’m feeling lazy! 😀 And they smell soooo goooooood!

    I’d love to have a dressmakers dummy. Not that I have anywhere to put it…or I’d have time to make anyhting…but it’d be cool! 😀

  7. My walls need to painted and washed. I haven’t painted in 5 years. Time for a color change. LOL. Love the way the pine cones and the Indian Corn look.

    Maybe you could stick some cinnamon sticks in between the pinecones and that would help? BTW, I love that old basket with the turkey on it!

  9. My walls could do with some painting. What if you mixed some cinnamon in with the pinecones, would that help? Essential oils are expensive, probably because they keep smelling.

    I guess you need the essential oil. I wonder how expensive it is?
