Based on a very unscientific opinion survey, approximately 90% of people think red wine fudgesicles are proof of divine intervention, while the other 10 percent (ahem, Julie) gags at the thought of them.

Weekend Project: Fabric Flower Rings

I get easily intimidated by Martha Stewart’s craft projects, because Martha is a crafting goddess and I definitely fall into the “crafting mortal” category. That being said, these fabric flower rings look genuinely easy to make (as long as you’re confident with a hot glue gun), and I love the result: so dainty and pretty.
