Homemade Tombstones...

We have never been into scary Halloween decor... we usually put out fall decorations and carve pumpkins. I carve eyes into little white pumpkins to make spooks and hide them under bushes and such. But this year I thought of something more Halloween-y that totally suits us!My neighbor cut them for us out of plywood we already had. I sprayed them with granite spraypaint, used a stencil for the letters and then sprayed them with a clear coat. They have already weathered one rainstorm....more

Old School or Sports Sweatshirts

We pay big money for sweatshirts or tee shirts with our children's school logo on them...or a team that our husband or children follow.When the shirts get too small, we usually give them away. Instead, cut a big square, with  the entire logo in it and make them a throw pillow. If there is a pocket, include it in the pillow. Use the back of the shirt for the back of the pillow. If using a tee shirt, cut the logo and sew that to a square of fleece and proceed....more

Paper Flowers
