DIY: The Cutest Little Drawstring Snack Bags

The Cutest Little Drawstring Snack Bag My oldest daughter is graduating this year and headed off to college, which made me reminisce about her going off to kindergarden 12 years ago!! I’d make her little name tags, I’d leave her little notes in her lunch, and I’d wave as she headed off on the bus. Today, I’m buying college supplies like coffee makers, bath towels, and $200 books!

DIY: Upcycled Paper Heart Garland

The world would be such a better place if people were doing more of what they love, than what they “get by” doing. I love UPCYCLING! (Using goods or used materials to produce something new….while saving the environment.) Today’s DIY project was done in February, but since it’s still hanging on my wall in my entranceway to my house, I figured I’d post about it on my blog. For this particular project, I found an old copy of EAT, PRAY, LOVE…
