Honey Butter

My seven year old boy has a love of cooking.  About once or twice a week he will ask me if he can make dinner.  And when he asks, he already knows what he wants to make.  

This week he wanted to make chicken noodle soup with rolls and his famous honey butter.  And he wants to do it all by himself.  I just hang around to answer questions, clean a little bit and offer suggestions.  🙂  And I will have to say, he made one good dinner that we all ate up!

Honey Butter

1/2 cup of soften butter

1/3 cup honey

1/2 cup powered sugar

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Cream all ingredients together for a minute or two until nice and fluffy.  

(We used a stand up mixer.)

Serve at room temperature over some warm rolls.

Lamp Makeover

I have been looking for a lamp to put in my daughters room.  I finally found one at a thrift store yesterday for $1.41. I have no idea where they got that price, but yes, $1.41.

After the makeover- the lamp is so cute and goes with Madi’s room so well!!

Here is the lamp before, I know- not very girly.  It definitely needed a makeover. 

 I did not want to spend any money, so I gathered items around the house- 

Spray Paint, Hot Glue, Lace and Material

I started to make flowers out of the material and glue them on the lamp shade.  I did not really know what kind of pattern I wanted, so I just started making them and gluing them on.

Here is how I made the flowers…

Tear the material in about a 3 inch strip and tie a knot at the end.

Twist and glue the material as you twist it around the knot.

Keep twisting and gluing until you get the desired size of the flower.

Here is what the lamp looks like after.  I spray painted the base of it white and added flowers all over the lampshade.
