Embellished sweatshirt DIY

I'm always looking for fun ways to personalize my daughter's clothes and there's nothing easier than a quick DIY embellishing project. I bought this plain, gray sweatshirt from American Apparel a couple of months ago and have been saving it for a project. As I mentioned in my last post, I recently released my first craft product - diecut felt words that are suitable for sewing or glueing on to all kinds of sewing and crafting projects. I'll be sharing my ideas for using them in different ways right here on my blog, so stay tuned.

Roasted butternut squash soup maker recipe

If you love butternut squash soup, then this is the recipe for you! I bought a soup maker a few months ago, and I've been trying to adapt some of my favorite soup recipes so that I can really make the most of it. I've found that whilst the soup maker does an amazing job of cooking and blending all the ingredients, I still like to take the time to prep some vegetables before hand. I roasted the butternut squash and browned the onion and apple before throwing them all in to the soup maker. Adding in those extra steps really helps to make a deliciously rich and hearty soup.
