Clear Glitter Slime (3 Easy Ingredients, NO Borax)

November 20, 2016

It is a stay-in kind of day so Lily and I made some CLEAR homemade slime with household supplies that we had on hand. Only clear Elmer's glue (PVA glue works too), saline solution and baking soda. NO BORAX!

The secret is using saline solution. It contains boric acid. And since both Brian and I wear contacts we had more than enough. Also laundry detergent works. If you don't have clear Elmer's glue you can get a bottle at Walmart for less than a $1. Or you can use regular Elmer's glue and add food coloring for non-clear slime.

Make this statement piece for your dining room from just a few pieces of scrap wood!

November 18, 2016

I've been trying to redo my dining room without spending much money. So I've been taking items that I already have and repurposing them. I can now add this "Gather" sign above our hutch to my list of cheaply made statement pieces.
It was constructed out of scrap wood, 2 1'x8' furring strips, stain that I already had on hand and white paint that I already had on hand. I created a template for the words and symbols that you can download here GATHERARROW. Tutorial for sign below.

No one wants to be sitting outside on a crisp fall night with a mixed drink on ICE? Instead plug in that slow cooker, put up your feet or get some chores done around the house while making your guests this yummy hot toddy recipe without the fuss of a kettle or saucepan. So I also found the perfect sweetener for this recipe. Torani's Bourbon Caramel syrup! Perfect, right? And less messy than honey.

If you're looking for a good mixed drink for after your Thanksgiving dinner this is it! Just set it and forget it!

Holiday Pillows out of Thrift Store Sweaters

November 3, 2016

I've been wanting to do some holiday decorating this year aside from the traditional tree and wreaths. I'd love to switch out some pillows, curtains and wall art. Unfortunately even cheap pillows cost a fortune, especially when you want to buy multiple ones. An easy hack is to buy holiday sweaters at the thrift store and recover old pillows with them!
I bought these sweaters at my local thrift store for half off the ticket price. So all but one of them were $1. The snowflake sweater was $2.

Brushed Yarn Fox Tail

November 1, 2016

This year Eloise requested to be a Fox for Halloween. It also happens to be a very popular costume this year so I was excited to try the brushed fox tail I'd seen on other sites.

DIY Hurricane Lanterns Out of Dollar Store Frames

October 18, 2016

I've been redecorating my dining room but doing so on a very tight budget. Like $100 budget. I can't wait to show you the before and after! For now I'll share this little project that only took me 30 minutes. Just take DOLLAR STORE frames and turn them into this gorgeous hurricane lantern! I used only 5 frames for a total of $5 per lantern! And since I had these frames on hand already I technically spent NOTHING!
See the tutorial below!
