Dear Creatives, I know many of you will be going out of town, busy barbecuing at some point but if you are the few staying home I thought I would share a few projects & recipes that caught my eye to keep you inspired over the extended weekend. I hope you find a recipe or a creative project or two to do or save for when your back in town! Some projects I am listing here for the Mr.’s lets not exclude their long weekend without a project or two!
First up the projects:
I saw this BBQ station floating around I wish I could give it credit. If anyone knows please email me or comment so I can give credit where due! This would be a perfect project for the Mr. as when we barbecue there is no place for our things & it looks quick, along with easy.
Just about any project on here via the link will stack up for the guys & girls you’ll be swooning over these projects. Here at my house we have talked about checking some of these projects off our list such as the compost bin, garden swing, garden trellis & outdoor shower via Sunset’s Favorite Backyard Projects perfect for any weekend. With no shortage of them! We have completed the raised bed & walkway (although slightly different & not meandering like theirs) We did that last year! Time to get onto the next ones, so here is my summer honey do list, even if we only check off a few I’ll be happy!
Now while he is doing the woodwork & I am waiting it’s the crafting & cooking to keep me busy. I have yet to buy washi tape & with all the art journaling & how I love to scrap-book you would think I would of purchased some by now. Thing is if I get anymore supplies I think I need to find a studio outside my home, lol! Seriously I have been trying to use up what I have. Now this project is perfect for those scraps of papers, fabrics & even lace? Yes, this has been on my must do list & maybe this is the perfect weekend! They used wrapping papers to do this! You can find the how to at Country Living’s post Make Tape From Wrapping Paper.
& if you are looking for other projects check out my crafts, diy recipe round-up & my project page via the nav. bar. Then if you want to sew up an apron for yourself or a good cause you still can do one for Craft Hope check out this post for information & patterns, along with tutorials.
For me I guess I’ll focus more on the food for the weekend to get a jump on the shopping for grilling. I never think of going to Sunset online for recipes, but maybe I might rethink that. Here is a line up of 37 Easy Camping Recipes that would be great at home too & kick start your summer!
Sunset’s Mango Tomato Salsa seems perfect to try for this weekend! & I found this oh, so yummy beet salad recipe via foodnouveau.com! & I have been wanting to try Lee Drummond “The Pioneer Woman” aunt’s salad dressing she swears by. If you missed yesterday’s post I had my favorite make ahead salad dressing & links to some yummy homemade BBQ sauce recipes!
I Hope you get to do a craft, backyard or simple project or two, then in the yard with your family & friends if you are staying at home. & if on the run what ever recipes you make & take this weekend be sure to have a safe & wonderful time!
What plans do you have this weekend?
