Salted Caramel Delight Shake

It has been soooooo hot here lately! We definitely need a cool down treat! How about you?
A couple months back I had a friend mention on fb that she had just made a salted caramel shake for dessert. Needless to say - and she had my attention!! Ingredients? Time? Delicious-ness rating from 1 to sugar coma? Mmmmm I had to try it! She listed all the ingredients but couldn't remember exactly how much of what she used because she would add a little more of something till it was just right.

Well I played around with it a little bit until I found the perfect concoction for us - The Salted Caramel Delight Shake. I really hope you like it too! It's basically only the best dessert you will ever have. True story!

This is seriously one of my absolute favorite treats. It is so quick to make and perfect for a cool down on a warm summer evening. Just the right amount of sweet and salty this Salted Caramel Delight Shake recipe will hit the spot!

Here you go!

Saturday in Style - Spa Day


We have A LOT going on in July! Just always is a crazy month for us for some reason. When we get that busy I always need just one day to sit and relax and do nothing! Just in case you need a pampering day to rejuvenate you for the rest of your summer, here are a bunch of patterns you can use.

My New Craft Room - Part 3

It's DONE!!!!! There was only a tiny little bit that didn't fit and that's just because I have too much blue, black and pink. ;) I want to make everything now! Every pattern I have ever seen or dreamed of making! All the things! I must knit/crochet ALL THE THINGS!!!!!


Just a break down for you so that you can see better how I did this, the top left is all my cotton/cotton blends by color and next to it is all my cotton/cotton blends that is either variegated or ombre. Just below those two shelves are all of my wool and wool blends in exactly the same fashion. The top right shelf and the three shelves below it are all my acrylic variegated or ombre skeins. All the other shelves, starting with the one that is second down on the left, are all my acrylics skeins sorted by color.

I LOVE  how it all came together. The clear plastic drawer to the left  of the yarn shelves is what wouldn't fit. The stuff below is all gift giving stuff, bags, tissue paper, cards, that sort of stuff. In the desks drawers to the right is *most* of my material and notions, ribbon, thread etc. All my crochet, knitting and sewing books are stacked on the shelves there. It looks sooooo pretty in this room! I want to just sit in it and stare at it's lovely organization all day long! 

What does your yarn storage look like? I think we'll have some kind of contest here in the next little bit where you can share your pics. What do you think?

We'll chat again soon.

Be happy!
