Whoa Mama!

I think this is one of the best ideas of the last decade! AND……..it’s recycling!  Pinch me….can life get any better?  Well……….of course it can, but we’re going to be really really excited about this brilliant idea.

Take these……wrapping paper rolls, paper towel rolls……..image Measure, mark and cut.

Glue and stabilize……………image

Paint any color you’d like.  imageAnd when it’s dry………hang this amazing piece of art on your wall!   Can you believe it?  Amazing.image Homemade Mamas has got it goin on!  They have lots of ideas you can create on a shoestring budget.

Love how they took old bottles, used paper mach’e…….a little bit of paint and created their own vases. Something you could do with the kids for sure.image They have living frugally down to an art.  They have lots and lots of cleaning solution ideas and recipes.   I used to make my own laundry detergent………but honestly……….I like my tide.  But this linen spray recipe is something I’m interested in………It’s got Vodka in it.  Which reminds me……..did you see Kirstie Alley on Oprah when she was talking about cleaning with Vodka?  Cheap Vodka?  Huh?  It’s a germ killer………that’s for sure.image Now that Valentines Day is over……..we need some regular craft ideas.  Maybe a Mothers Day gift idea…….or just a Spring idea.  Spring is around the corner…….somewhere. 

She has a tutorial on how to make these stepping stones.  You don’t need to buy that kit at Michaels.   You can use items from your yard to make your designs.  imageimage Head over and see for yourself……….but I’m not going to tell you to leave a comment, because apparently you don’t like to be told that………  Yes….I do check.  **hands on my hips**

 

I did pick a winner for last Friday’s giveaway…….it’s posted on yesterday’s post.  I no longer notify winners.  I’m getting so crotchety in my old age aren’t I?
