how did you make the vanilla extract? I would love to do this.

Hey Michelle! Vanilla extract is actually super easy. It's one bottle of vodka and 6 vanilla beans. Take the beans, slit them in half, scrape the seeds into the bottle, put the hulls into the bottle, then seal it up. Shake it once a week vigorously. After 3 months, it's ready!

I got a cute Ikea bottle to put mine in and it looked decorative on my counter. Good luck!
