It's fall!

I don't know about you, but fall is my favorite season. I love the crisp air, and the colorful, crunchy leaves. (And there's always something to be said for things that are pumpkin flavored.)


Fall is also the perfect time to stay cozy and warm. I've added a few new ear warmers at CraftyGirl Merchandise......













..and I'll be adding more colors soon!

Until next time...stay crafty (and warm)!

CraftyGirl's Featured Shop: UndercoverKangaroo

Featuring home decor and instant download prints, UndercoverKangaroo is a relatively new Etsy shop that specializes in one of a kind designs with a fun flair. Based out of Austin, Texas, owner Tara named her shop after a family inside joke. The name UndercoverKangaroo just adds to the fun and funky flair of the items Tara creates! Here are a few of her pieces that caught my eye:
























You can also find UndercoverKangaroo on Society6 and RedBubble, as well as her website for the childrens' books she writes and illustrates. She's currently in the process of updating the website, so make sure to check back periodically for new content!


Until next time...stay crafty (and buy handmade)!

Chocolate Gravy Recipe

A few years ago, when I first heard of chocolate gravy, I was perplexed. What IS chocolate gravy? Is it actually chocolate, or is that referring to the color of the gravy? And then, at a fateful Christmas party, I had it...and it is amazing! (And yes, it's chocolate)

Perfect over biscuits, pancakes and more, it's decadent and rich, but without too much fat. I could probably drink it straight.. (Oh, who am I kidding, I did that just a few days ago!)

So I decided to introduce ya'll to chocolate gravy. Now, I didn't take any pictures...mostly because I was too excited to eat it... but here's the recipe I used: Southern Style Chocolate Gravy

You'll thank me later.


Until next time...stay crafty (and eat chocolate)!

Apple Nut Muffins with Streusel Topping - from Food Network






When I'm stressed, I bake. It's as simple as that. I went to bake cookies earlier today, and found I didn't have all the ingredients I needed...however, later in the evening, when I couldn't sleep, I decided to whip up some muffins! I used the Apple Nut Muffin with Streusel recipe from Food Network, and it is so good! I'd show you a picture of the finished product, but admittedly, I filled my muffin cups too high and well..it's not pretty. But it's still delicious. :) 


So, make sure to check the recipe out here if you're in the mood for some baking!



Until next time...stay crafty (and bake some goodies)!
