Easy Pizza Perfect

This little pizza is easy for those who don't have a lot of time on their hands.  I learned how to make this basic pizza at the Preschool I work at.  Its quick, easy, and affordable. 


1 pack of Thomas English Muffins
1 Jar of Pizza Sauce
1 pack of mozzarella cheese
1 package of pepperonis

Any other ingredients are welcome to add!

**Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees**

1.  I feel that Thomas brand is way better than the generic.  It's less than $2.50 a bag at Walmart!

2. This is the best generic pizza sauce too.  Found at walmart for only $1.19 a jar.
3. Carefully pull apart the english muffins in two.  And place them on a cookie sheet. 

4. Gently spoon sauce onto  each english muffin.  My family prefers lots of sauce!

5. Next,..put in the oven (without toppings!) for about 5 mins or until semi-crunchy. 

6.  Add Cheese

7.  Add pepperoni and other toppings to your desired!

8. Put back in the oven for another 5 mins or until cheese is melted!

Lamp Shade Makeover

This is such a simple way to makeover a small piece in any room of your home.  It's quick and simple!

Estimated time: 25 mins (including prep time)

Estimated cost: $8.45

Materials Needed:

1 lamp shade (I got my whole lamp at target a few months ago on clearance for under $5)
1/2 yard fabric of your choice
1 glue gun

1. Here is the little guy I had bought at target.  My lamp shade has an approximate circumference of 8 inches.  1/2 a yard of fabric was the perfect amount.  If you're using a larger lamp shade, I would suggest more fabric.  

2.  Lay your fabric out and cut into strips.  I cut mine into 2-3 inch strips.

3.  Next, use your hot glue gun and put glue down where you plan to start your fabric.  Sometimes, lamp shades have a seam, this is where I started my piece of fabric.

4.  Place your fabric on the glue (like I did below)

5.  Scrunch up your fabric and start gluing vertical lines on the right end of the fabric (opposite of where my thumb is)

6.  Go all the way around until you meet up with the first part of fabric you glued.  

7.  Continue making rows (I ended up with only 3 on my lamp shade.  Larger shades will require more rows). 

8. Completed Project.
