Crafty fun

First picture- my mom made this pillow case cover which I absolutely love! We don't have a lot of Easter decor so it was very needed.
Second pic is of some fries that we made and they were delicious! You have got to try them! I broiled them at the end to make them a little bit more crispy. Here is the recipes for the cilantro garlic fries
5-6 yukon gold potatoes, cut into thin fries
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 – 1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 – 3/4 tsp sea salt
1/4 c. loosely packed cilantro leaves, finely chopped

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees, and get a baking sheet with rack ready (if no rack, just line with foil/parchment paper and drizzle with olive oil. Cut the potatoes into fries and place in a bowl of cold water to soak for a few minutes.

Drain the water and dry the fries with paper towel. Once dry, toss the fries with the olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Lay on a baking sheet in a single layer, preferably one that has a cooking rack so the fries can have the air circulating all around them (and no need to flip.) Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on your oven and how crispy you like your fries. If using a baking sheet without a rack, halfway through the cooking time, flip the fries.

Once done, toss fries with cilantro in a bowl.

Enjoy by the handful!

The last two pictures are some baby girl dresses I made for my sisters upcoming girl! I got really into this birth for some reason. It may be because I know we could Be the next ones having a baby so it's my last time enjoy someone else's pregnancy. Ha. It was also my first attempt at making a dress and it was very exciting and I was quite proud of myself. Just don't look too close :)
