How To Make Perfect Kale Chips Every Time

Kale chips are a great healthy snack. They're also pretty tricky to make. I've made countless bad batches (too soggy, too burnt, 1/2 soggy-1/2 burnt, you get the drift!) I finally have my kale chip technique down and I wanted to share it with you today.
1) Make sure the kale leaves are thoroughly dry. Wet leaves will result in soggy chips.
2) Remove the leaves from the stem
3) Coat the leaves lightly with olive oil (I like to use a spray bottle)
4) Spread the kale out thinly on a baking sheet. This will ensure that all the leaves are baked evenly.
5) I bake mine at 350° for 10 minutes in my double oven. For your first batch I recommend checking on them frequently starting at 9 1/2 minutes. 
6) Season with sea salt & enjoy!

DIY Accordion Tie Dyed Onesies

I had some plain white Onesies I knew I wanted to dye. Instead of going for the traditional rainbow/hippie tie dye look, I made them over using this accordion technique. I'm really happy with the way they turned out and I think my little guy is too!

How To Weave Your Own Patches

I'm sure you've all seen the pretty, woven wall hanging tutorials all over Pinterest. I wanted to do a different spin on the trend by making clothing patches. These are great for covering up a hole or even to add some color/texture to a plain sweater.

DIY Malachite Flower Pots

I love the look of Malachite, but the real thing can be pricey. The look can be easily re-created using a paint/glaze mixture and a fan brush. Read below to find out how!
