Made::Matchbox Car Pouch

I saw something like this on Pinterest several months ago.  I really wanted to make it for my nephew, Joel.  My plan was to get it done before Christmas, but that didn't happen.  Luckily Joel's birthday is in January! 

This was pretty much my first project to make from an idea.  Like I said, I had seen something similar, but I wanted this one to be a little different.  I made 7 pouches for his matchbox cars.  It has a felt road and closes with a hook-and-loop tab.

I think he liked it.  I'm pretty sure I heard a few of the little boys at the party exclaim, "Cool!" when he opened it.  At least, that's what I'm telling myself.

Siesta Scripture Memory Verse 3

Romans 8:4-5 ...in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.

Pinterest Eats::Banana Egg-cakes

So, we eat a serious amount of bananas at the Taylor house.  At least one a day.  I came across this pin on Pinterest a few days ago.  We had some bananas that were on their last legs.  I had already made banana muffins earlier in the week, so we needed a new option.
I decided this would be a great way to finish them off. 

Now, my end product looked nothing like the one I saw on Pinterest, but the girls LOVED this. 
Looking at the actual pin-there is no link to a recipe-I suspect that there might be some flour or something involved.  They look more like a pancake than mine did.  I may have had my skillet too hot though...this is a serious problem that I have-my grilled cheese is abysmal.
