Showing Off - Reader Feature

Each week a reader picks their favorite links from the party - want a turn, just email me, mandybeez at gmail

Hey guys! I’m Rebecca from With Scissors and a Spatula, a cooking and crafting blog. While I have been following and reading Mandy’s amazing blog for quite some time, I’m a pretty new blogger myself and am very excited to be able to share a few of my favorite projects today! I always find tons of creative ideas and yummy recipes from this link-up, so here are the links that inspired me the most this week!

Tied Pillow Case 1
This simple update to a basic pillow case by Made it on Monday is so adorable! I want all my pillow cases to have bows on them now.
DIY Solar Jars
Love, Pomegranate House's DIY Solar Jars are so unique. I'd love to have a couple of them out on my patio behind my apartment. And who knew you could buy frosted glass spray paint?!
I have a HUGE weakness for anything S'mores. My recipe board on Pinterest is probably about 25% S'more flavored recipes and these S'mores Cookies (on top of a graham cracker, no less) by What's Cooking Love? are now part of that percentage. Yum!
Slow cooker recipes are the best and this Crockpot Mac N' Cheese from High Heels and Grills sounds (and looks!) delicious.
I am 5' 9", so finding dresses that are long enough is already a problem, but even if I find one the right length, too often it shrinks when I wash it. Lucky for me, Sarah at Welcome to the gOOd Life has tutorials for making one short dress longer with the fabric left over from making another too-short dress into a shirt. Problems solved!
From Pink Recipe Box, Chocolate-Coated Ice Cream Brownie Sandwiches. I don't think I need to say anything else...
Easier Than I Thought gives a tutorial on how to paint an upholstered chair. I know how to sew, but slipcovers are so intimidating! It's good to know that paint can give you the same look.
I love a good t-shirt refashion and I also love anything sparkly. The Forge's Sequin Collar T-Shirt tutorial covers both of them! So cute.

Those are my picks from this week's party. Hope you guys like them as much as I do! Thanks Mandy for letting me participate!
