Mason Salt and Pepper Shakers

Hey kids :]
I'm a little excited because I actually have a tutorial for you all. And it's seriously the easiest thing evvaar.

Mason jar salt and pepper shakers! Yes, I finally gave in and started making things out of mason jars, rather than just letting mine be sad and lonely in the pantry haha.
But we had no real salt and pepper shakers in the apartment, so I thought it was about time--

Here is how you can make your own! Seriously, its so simple and I don't know why I didn't do it sooner.

Step One: Gather your materials- jars with lids, a hammer and nail, and something to nail on top of [I just used a piece of scrap wood.]

Step Two: Locate the lids and mark them where you want to punch the holes. I marked one hole in the middle with six holes around it.

Step Three: Use the hammer and nails to punch them holes, yo. Just... don't use a super huge nail I guess... unless you like really salty food haha.

Step Four: Fill your new shakers up with salt and pepper, and you're ready to cook like a pro! A really... somewhat red-necky... pro....

I'd say mission accomplished :]

But yerp, linkin' up to Savvy Southern Style and other great parties OVER HER.

Oatmeal Scarf

Remember when I said that I've been crocheting a lot?
I've been crocheting a lot.

And this week I ended up crocheting my first infinity scarf--
I enjoy the whole infinity scarf fashion/deal/thing, so I thought it was about time I finally make one. I mean, the fringe monstrosity was born a few weeks ago, so WHY NOT YARN.

Cue dramatically lit pictures of said scarf.
[I can't help it, it was SUNNY for once]

I got some Homespun yarn for half price, which I've never really worked with before. But the scarf ended up pretty darn fluffy and obnoxious [in a good way]. I didn't really use a pattern because.... reasons... but if anyone is interested in making their own, I can attempt to write one up for this one.

Have a pleasant Sunday, kids.
