From Table Runner To Pillows In An Afternoon

I am a huge fan of HGTV shows.  I especially like Hometown because Erin is a fellow Frugal Fanny, make what you can't afford.  I have all of season 2 on my DVR and I was watching the second episode, and Erin used a piece of tribal cloth to make a pillow for the homeowner.  Tribal cloth doesn't work in my home but it did get my gears turning.  I had a table runner that I loved the fabric it just didn't work in for my dining room table but would work in a sitting area I have.  I found it in the drawer and went to work one afternoon.

Copycat Taco Bell Cantina Bowl

We all have that one fast food meal that is our weakness.  For me, it's the Taco Bell Cantina Bowl.  I love it and would eat one every other day if it was possible.  I live twenty miles from the nearest Taco Bell and I know that eating there three times a week isn't the healthiest option.  The better option is the make a copycat version at home where I can control the ingredients.
