Shrinky dinks may be a blast from the past — they were all the rage in the '70s and '80s — but they're still the best way to turn your favorite memories into beautiful pieces you can wear on your wrist, around your neck or in your ears. All you have to do is pick your photo, trace it onto shrink film and follow the simple steps below.
Say it with us: plarn. It's exactly what it sounds like — yarn made from plastic. You can't find it at your local craft store, but you can make it by recycling all your plastic bags from the grocery store. It's easy, quick and totally eco-friendly. Not to mention it gives a cool effect to lots of fun projects.

Real talk: a taco is only as good as its salsa. (This goes double for pre-feast tortilla chips.) And if you think of Mexican salsa as a chunky, tomato-based, lightly seasoned condiment, it's time to broaden your horizons. There are a ton of different varieties out there — sweet, hot, smoky, etc — so go on and challenge your taste buds with a plethora of options at your next Taco Tuesday or Cinco de Mayo fiesta.
You don't need any fancy cake decorating skills to make your mom these awww-dorable cupcakes. The secret is all in the cutters and molds you can use to make your job oh-so-simple. Whip 'em up to celebrate Mother's Day and get ready for all the heart-eye emojis coming your way.
Whether you're spreading it on homemade tortillas or dipping chips into it, guacamole is a must-have for any Mexican meal. And while the classic recipe is mouthwatering, you can turn this salsa on its head by adding two more ingredients: berries and goat cheese.
Great guacamole comes down to one very simple thing: using great avocados. Before you select your mix-ins, you need high-quality, flavorful avocados as a base. But these finicky fruits aren't always easy to handle, which is why renowned chef Rick Bayless gave his top tips for picking the best every time.
Let's be real: you don't need a reason to make a refreshing frozen margarita, but Cinco de Mayo sure is a good one. While a pre-made margarita mix may seem like an easy way to streamline your drink-mixing, margaritas made from scratch blow the bottled stuff away — and it's much easier to make than you'd think.
You don't need a longarm quilting machine to finish your quilt — stitch it with an embroidery machine instead! By quilting in the hoop, you can create quilts block by block, in long strips or stitch 'em whole. And with all the options your embroidery machine has, you can make quilts as simple or complex as you want.
Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for "the fifth of May," is a celebration in remembrance of the Mexican victory over the French Army in 1862. (That's not the Mexican Independence, as many people mistakenly believe.) The commemoration is observed in regions of Mexico, but is also a widely popular holiday in the United States, honoring many people's Mexican heritage.
Having a dedicated space for quilting is like having a little haven in your house.

But don't sweat — it's simple to keep your quilting room organized, especially if you follow these hacks.
Coloring books are commonly thought to be a pastime for children, but they actually have benefits for everyone regardless of age. In fact, coloring mandalas, words of inspiration and nature scenes helps reduce stress and promote mindfulness, according to the Mayo Clinic.
