Recycle an old picture frame into something Fabulous (inspiration)



   I have a project kicking around in my head, and I can't wait to post it. I just need to make a quick trip to the hardwear store (probably tonight), then create the D.I.Y. Well until I get to that I thought maybe I should link up to some insperational projects that I found around the web. These are all upcycle projects, those are so much fun right!? 


Here we go:

Recycle Crafts - Bottle Cap Picture Frame

I have a fondness for recycling bottle caps, so I had to link to this one.

Strawberry Cupcake Kisses

   Happy Valerntines Day! I did a little experimenting today with Hershey Kisses and Cupcake Mix. I think next time I'm going to try a different route and a few alteration in ingredients, but here are my results from this evenings Valentines Day Dessert. They (as cupcakes usually are...) were a BIG hit.

Hope you had a great day filled with plenty of sweets and lots of Kisses.

Hummus Tuna Spread


   Today I am sharing a great Tuna "slightly Vegan, but not really I'm kind of cheating today" recipe I just threw together. I was about a half hour late for lunch today sifting through the fridge and cabinets pondering what I should Eat. *Stomach growl... Lo and behold I found a can of Tuna. I don't eat meat and stay Vegan during the week, but I have recently decided I would have fish every once in a while. (Although Tuna is the only thing I have bent on so far) Call me what you will and throw me to the wolves, I eat Tuna... *Shrugs 

Well before I ramble on even farther... Here's what I had for lunch...

Can of Tuna - 5 oz. drained
Dill Pickle - to taste, chopped
Sabra Spinach and Artichoke Hummus - 1/2 Tablespoon
HEB Tapenade Specialty Series Olive - 1 Teaspoon

   Now I'm not sure how technical I have to get here, this is my first recipe I have ever posted. But I'm pretty sure that you readers know how to make Tuna... Mix it all up together of course!

   If you need a bit more assistance here you go: Open the can of Tuna drain and place in a small bowl, add the Sabra Spinach and Artichoke Hummus and HEB Tapenade Specialty Series Olive stir in. Chop your Dill Pickles to what ever size you desire, add them and mix together.

   You can have this in a Sandwich, in a tortilla roll, or just the plain ol' way I did, on some crackers. 

                                                                  xoxo, Val
