Lemon Ice Cubes
This is such a great trick for a baby or wedding shower punch bowl. Just slice up a few lemons and freeze them with a little water in a muffin tin. I made a pitcher of raspberry Crystal Light and the lemon ice cubes really fancy it up.
|So easy and pretty!|
Mason Jar Picture Frame
This is what I like to a call a DIY-Don't. You can read all about it by clicking on the link above. I left it on my kitchen counter because it cracks me up every time I walk by it.

Scrapbook Paper Centerpieces
I had big plans for this little guy. All you need is an old can or jar, spray adhesive, and scrapbook paper. I wanted to make a little centerpiece for the table like the pin illustrates. Unfortunately, last week was insane so I never made it to the store for fresh flowers. It does, however, make a perfect pencil holder. Ha!

Homemade Ice Cream (No Ice Cream Maker Necessary)
You have to make this. No, really. I was so intrigued by this because most ice cream recipes require an ice cream maker. For this recipe, all you need is heavy whipping cream, eagle brand milk, a little melted butter, a splash of vanilla, and whatever toppings you can dream up. We had some double stuffed Oreos in the pantry so I crushed a cup or so of those and threw them in there. Best. Cookies & Cream Ice Cream. Ever. I promise. It is soooo rich, but worth every single calorie.
|My new favorite recipe.|
|It's a good idea..in theory.|

Lemon Drop Jello Shots
Aren't these adorable? Don't let them fool you with their cuteness, they are dangerous. Delicious and dangerous. You would think four years of college would have taught me a thing or two. Nope. They get me every time.

|They tasted better than they look. :)|
Four out of seven projects worked - so at least I still have a winning season at this point.
