Yummy Tuna Salad.

Posted on

One of my favorite foods is tuna salad, or anything with tuna in it. This is originally my mom’s recipe, but I added a few things to it over the years. It is AMAZING and super easy to make, you have to be crazy not to try it!

Things you need:

  • 3 cans of tuna. (preferably tuna in water).
  • 3 hard boiled eggs.( diced.)
  • 1/2 cup of salad dressing. ( can use mayo or miracle whip.)
  • 1 tbsp. mustard.
  • 1/2 tbsp. onion powder.
  •  1/2 tbsp. garlic powder.
  • salt.
  • pepper.
  • pickles. (optional.)
  • bowl.

First, drain your tuna of any water. The dryer it is the better. Add your diced eggs and all of the seasonings. Mix everything up, then add your salad dressing, mustard and salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything once again and you’re done! If you want you can add diced pickles to your tuna salad. I usually put mine on my sandwich separately with cheese and spinach.  🙂

ENJOY!

Mr.Kitty Sleeping.

Posted on

My little pumpkin LOVES to sleep in the most weirdest positions. So every time I would catch him sleeping, um, “not normal” I take a picture! I’ve had cats before and NONE of them slept in these positions! I don’t even know how he can be comfortable! Anyways, it might just be the breed…but who knows!

Hugging his little legs!

All curled up in a ball!

Hugging the back of our couch! Eventually his head fell so far down that he ended up on the window sill.

I don’t even know how he thought of this one…sleeping all squashed up by the screen…

All spread out!

I think he was secretly protecting my shoes. 😉

This is probably the closest he’s come to sleeping like a normal cat. 😛

Hope you enjoyed his odd sleeping habit!

DIY: Coasters.

I have always wanted to make my own coasters but never knew how. That is until I was browsing on pinterest and found a link on how its done! Of course I picked the colors that matched my living room. 🙂

All you need is:

Tiles-(Found at Home Depot for 16 cents each!)

Scrapbook paper

Mod Podge

Scissors or paper cutter

Acrylic varnish

Clear acrylic moister resistant gloss spray

Felt

Steps:

  1. Measure your tiles and measure and cut your scrapbook paper.
  2. Use Mod Podge to glue the scrapbook paper onto the tiles. ( I let it dry overnight.)
  3. Once dry, Mod Podge the top of the scrapbook paper. Do two coats, let dry in between. ( I used gloss Mod Podge.)
  4. Again, once dry spray each tile with acrylic varnish. I did about two or three coats in between. That should give you the glossy look! Let dry overnight.
  5. After everything is dry, spray each tile with the water resistant acrylic coating. I did about two coats in between.
  6. Last but not least, cut out small square shapes from your felt and glue it on the bottom of your coaster.( Prevents from scratching the table tops.)

Felt glued to the bottom of the coaster!

One thing that I found, was to not put hot items on the coasters. For some reason it sticks and melts the coating on the coasters. Eventually I will experiment more and figure out the best way to make these. If for any reason something does stick to your coaster,( candle, cup, ect.) just spray a few coats of varnish and it should reseal it again.

Living Room Wall Art!

Posted on

Image

(sorry for the crappy photo, I took it with my phone.)

So, my living room is mostly purple and gold. Or at least that’s my attempt at it. When i first moved out, the first thing   I wanted to do besides buy furniture, is decorate! Well, I shopped around for awhile and realized how expensive wall art can be! So I thought to myself, “hmmm, I can make the same thing cheaper!” Not only that, but it will also be MY artwork. 😀

This is very easy to do. All you need to 12X12 scrapbook paper and 12X12 canvas. I painted the outside of the canvas with gold acrylic paint, just so it looked a little more professionally made. I also used a spray adhesive and let it dry overnight. I got this idea from here.

Enjoy!
