Welcome Viewers from The Rachael Ray Show!

April 26th, 2011

We want to welcome new viewers who found us through The Rachael Ray Show! We were beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to “craft” with Rachael. We have to admit that when we first got asked to be on the show, we thought…”Do they know that ‘The DIY Dish‘ is NOT a cooking show?!” 😉  Of course, they weren’t looking for a cooking segment…rather they wanted us to come and  “CRAFT” with Rachael. And who would say no to that?! We’ve watched Rachael for years, so this was such an exciting trip for us, to say the least.

It was also a quick trip. We flew out one day. Filmed the next day. Flew home at midnight that night. Just another day at the office, right? Ha! Although it was a fast one, it was one we will never forget.  Our excitement grew as the day to tape got closer…and imagine how hard it was to keep this a “secret” for the last month!

We hope you enjoyed the segment. If you have any questions on anything shown in the segment, let us know and we’ll try our best to answer. We’d love to hear from you!

We want to thank the entire team at The Rachael Ray Show — it is an amazing collaboration of talent and time that comes together to produce a show like hers. Rachael is also just the kind of person you think she would be – “down to earth”, funny, friendly, the girl you could talk to for hours, and of course, talented.  Now if we could just cook like her. 😉

-Kim & Kris

**If you are new here, feel free to browse around and find past episodes of our show below, as well as projects on our blog. You can also sign up for our free newsletter so you’ll know when new episodes of our craft and sewing show are posted. The sign-up box is found at the top (blue) tab of our homepage.  Thank you!

Here are more photos from the day!

Here are more up-close photos from the table settings!

We glued small squares of white tissue to the branches to look like small blossoms.

The burlap “vase” below was made from an empty orange juice container.

We took store-bought plastic easter eggs (yes, the bright purple and pink ones you can find!) and covered them with fabric and Mod Podge. Other eggs were covered with small pieces of masking tape and then painted for a “crackled” look.


Can you tell what Kris made these napkin rings out of??? Yes, you got it right — hair rollers! :)

  • admin
    April 27, 2011 at 5:03 am

    Thanks everyone for your kind words! What a fun day it has been!

    To answer your questions —

    1. We used Elmer’s White Glue. We used 2 parts glue to 1 part water. The key to this being successful is that you must wait until it is fully and completely dry — this may take at least 24 hours — perhaps more. Dip the yarn fully in the glue mixture until saturated, wipe off excess glue (just with your fingers is fine) and wrap all different ways around the balloon.

    2. Laura – You asked about written instructions on the projects. We do not have those as we show everything through video, but since time was limited on Rachael Ray, we think it would be fun to go into great detail on some of these projects in some upcoming episodes of The DIY Dish. We’ll try our best to do that in the coming weeks.

    3. Deb – We created a stencil with a bird drawing that we did by tracing the pattern onto the paper side of freezer paper. Simply cut the pattern out and then carefully iron the paper (shiny side down) onto your burlap (this takes just a few seconds.) Then dab paint onto it with a dry sponge brush, wait for it to fully dry, and remove the paper. It’s a very fun project with a ton of possibilities! :)

But of course, I couldn’t get away from teaching completely because I’m about ready to finish my 4th year of teaching preschool out of my home. :) Thanks to such great mentors like yourself, I love teaching! Can’t wait to see all the fun things you fun girls have come up with! You both are truly amazing!

    If you find it a bit maddening to follow the daily fluctuations of the scale even though
    you are eating properly, pick three days of the week on which you will always weigh yourself
    (for example, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday).
    In fact, I always suggest to those overweight vegetarians
    to keep to a max of 4 pounds a week so you won’t suffer loose skin post weight loss. Many people don’t have the time to weight themselves every day, but checking the scale on
    a regular basis can definitely help when you’re working to lose weight and keep it off.

  • August 1, 2013 at 9:16 pm

    Even though your goal is just to lose 5 pounds in a week, you should
    be strict with what you do so as not to inadvertently undo all your hard work for vegetarian weight loss.
    Withdrawal from levothyroxine can be done but it takes 6 weeks of withdrawal for the remaining thyroid tissue to be completely starved.

    Hence, broccoli is a must-add ingredient in your vegetarian weight loss diet.

  • August 5, 2013 at 4:58 am

    Even though your goal is just to lose 5 pounds in a week, you should be strict
    with what you do so as not to inadvertently undo all your
    hard work for vegetarian weight loss. Vinson had
    participants keep their normal diet and exercise routines (or lack thereof) and merely added
    the green coffee. Do not be tempted to lose weight as
    quickly as you can, because a crash diet will have you eating less than a thousand calories
    a day slowing down your metabolism.
