This Tiny Birdhouse Camper Might Kill You With Cuteness

STRICTLY FOR THE BIRDS
These absolutely charming handcrafted birdhouses are inspired by the Shasta campers of the 1950's, will add a bit of charm to your yard, garden, or home. A thoughtful gift for vintage camper enthusiasts, bird lovers of all stripes, collectors, or your eccentric Uncle Al. 

Finish and construction are: exterior oil-based paint, brass escutcheon pins, and aluminum sheeting on a frame of 1/2 inch Okoume marine-grade plywood with waterproof glue for durability and weather resistance (Okoume is a sustainable-growth hardwood). The bottom slides out for easy cleaning access. A screw and spacer are included for mounting the birdhouse to a tree or post. 

The entry hole is 1 1/2 inches in diameter, making these birdhouses appropriate for Carolina wrens, eastern bluebirds, ash-throated flycatchers, hairy woodpeckers, tree swallows, yellow-bellied sapsuckers, and many other birds. 

BECAUSE OF THE METAL TOP, these should be placed in deep shade, not direct sunlight, to preven…

Recipes We Love! Hamburger Helper® Crab-Stuffed Cheesy Peppers #SaveOnHelper

I hope you all had the chance to grab the special Hamburger Helper®​ Ibotta coupon we just posted a few days ago because today I am "flipping" the Hamburger Helper® Tuna Cheesy pasta into something completely different.

I have seen so many recipes of stuffed peppers using Hamburger Helper®​, but I have never seen one where they substitute the protein for crabmeat. The funny part about this recipe is that I accidentally discovered it when I realized I forgot to buy the tuna for the recipe.

Stuffed peppers with crabmeat stuffing is nothing new, so I thought, why not add crabmeat stuffing to our Hamburger Helper®? Just top it with a great gooey cheese and it should be perfect, and it was!
The best part of this recipe is that is it so easy to do and it requires a limited amount of ingredients.


Hamburger Helper® Crabmeat Stuffed Peppers
INGREDIENTS
1 box of Hamburger Helper®​ Tuna Cheesy Pasta
4 Bell Peppers in any color
8 oz of crabmeat stuffing
8 oz crabmeat (not shown in pictures)

Celebrate National Hamburger Month With a Hamburger Helper® Rebate #SaveOnHelper

June is National Burger MonthHead to Walmart And Grab a Hamburger Helper® And Make Summer Meals a Breeze!Summer is here, the sun is shining and the warm southern wind is sweet. June is officially in full swing, kids are busy volunteering, practicing martial arts, and learning a third language at home. My kids are fluent in Spanish and English, but they are determined to learn a third language before they graduate from high school. My eldest is learning German, while my youngest is fascinated with all things French.

Summer is challenging for most families, especially those with children, because not only they need to keep them busy, but you need to make 3 meals a day, when you normally only make two.

What is it about kids spending long periods at home and overeating? Seriously, where does this insatiable appetite comes from? A bottle of juice? Gone in a day! Bagels? Gone in 2 days! I am just glad I can go to Walmart and get Hamburger Helper® and whip up a healthy, quick and delicious mea…

ICE's Summer Craft Market is Back

If you LOVE all things handmade you are going to love the ICE's Summer Craft Market on June 6- 7
ICE's mission is to provide opportunity to craft and vintage sellers. Educating shoppers on why they should buy handcrafted is a big component as well (Why? Because you are using your money to directly support someone using their talents to make a living, instead of a big box store and a chain of middle-men. What you buy will be unique instead of contributing to the sameness threatening to dominate society today). Encouraging people to craft is another important aspect of ICE's mission through hands-on activities at our events, ICE Summer Camp for Kids, Craft Escape and bringing Make N Takes to other events such as Art on the BeltLine, Maiedae Mixer, Maker Faire Atlanta and the Decatur Book Fest. While their original goal was to create a market where they could sell their own creations, ICE has grown so much that Shannon and Christy barely have time to craft anymore,…
