Earning-My-Cape Weekly Crochet Square


I would like to thank everyone who has visited and those who continue to visit my blog. I want to let you all know that I am going to have to take a hiatus from my blog to focus on my family. I guess that's all part of chasing after that cape, right?
I plan to leave the posts and patterns that I have up, and I hope to continue to post an occasional pattern or recipe or homeschooling idea whenever I get the chance.

Couscous Recipe

Are you ever falling behind in your daily activities, and in need of a quick fix for dinner?
Yeah, me too!
Couscous is a tasty and very quick side dish that can be whipped up in less than 15 minutes. It pairs nicely with chicken, so on those busy evenings, you can grab some leftovers or one of those rotisserie chickens from the grocery store, a quick salad or frozen veggie, and the couscous, and dinner is on the table in less than a half hour!
Nice, right?

I Tried It! ~ Homemade Face Powder Foundation

As soon as I saw the Homemade Face Powder Foundation on My Merry Messy Life, I knew I wanted to try it! Sara promised that it was all natural and easy, and she was right!
I mixed some up on less than five minutes, and tried it out.

Like Sara, I am fair-skinned, so I used cornstarch and a little cinnamon.I found that I only needed 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch. I didn't add an essential oil, only because I don't have any at the moment. I think I am going to be adding one that is nourishing to dry skin. My skin is combination, but I think the powder itself will help with the areas that tend to get a little oily after being out and about in the heat all day. Sara says that Palmarosa is hydrating, so I may try that!
