Wesens-Art shared a DIY on how to use heat transfer vinyl on wood. Looks like a very simple project that will last a long time. I love posts like these because they can be used in so many projects, for example my wedding! We've been pinning so many projects that I know we may never use, but this looks like a doable project.
Thanks for sharing your heat vinyl transfer DIY!

Congratulations to the featured blogs!

What are You Doing? July Blog Hop

What have I been doing?

I will eventually write down some of the interesting things I learned from planning my own wedding, or maybe write a post on the struggles no one tells you about planning a wedding. It's really not as bad as it sounds, but it is a lot of work. I think I would do well with planning someone else's wedding, but not my own!

In crochet news, I finished another crochet item this month. I got distracted from the Canyon shrug and started this crochet tablet cover. I think I needed a break from doing the same old stitches. It just needs a button. I also need to write a review on the pattern.


Right now I'm testing a skunk doll pattern for Crochet Ole. Her dolls are so cute!

Michaela shared 10 Simple Ways to Save When Throwing a Party on her blog Covered in Mod Podge. One of the points I really like is that you don't have to DIY everything! So true, especially when I want to DIY so much of my wedding, but I can't! Thank you for sharing!

Recipe Test: Zucchini Lasagna Rollups

Links to this post


I tried making Zucchini Lasagna Rollups for dinner on Tuesday night. It kept showing up on my Facebook news feed, so I had to try it out. Although I sliced my fingers twice, I think I still did a good job. Lorenzo really liked it!


I will share a few tips on what I learned from this recipe:

Two 15 oz containers of ricotta cheese will give you more than enough spread. I had enough of everything to make two trays. If I had used a 9 x 13 inch pan like the instructions said to use, I might not have had extra.

Make sure you have a good knife to cut THIN slices of the zucchini. This is where the cuts on my fingers came from. If the slices aren't at least 1/8th of an inch, you will not be able to roll them. I should just call mine zucchini fold ups.

I could only roll up TWO.

I had tons of extra odd cut pieces from the 5 zucchinis the recipe asked me to purchase. I'm not one to waste, so I made another zucchini lasagna where I layered sauce, ricotta cheese mix, mozzarella and zucchini over and over until everything was used up. The second lasagna could have also been stored in the freezer for a later dinner.

Ricotta cheese is MESSY! Be prepared to have your fingers drenched in cheese and sauce while making this. I promise I washed my hands every time I tried rolling a few of them.

If you take time to cook a delicious meal and he has to wait a few hours to eat, he might just set the table. :)



Even though I had struggles, this was an easy meal to put together. The zucchinis were perfectly cooked and had a little crunch. And this meal satisfied my desire for a pasta meal. Enjoy!
