The Idea Room: Brown Sugar Foot Scrub Recipe

A good foot rub sounded good about now and then I came upon this tutorial/recipe for a brown sugar foot scrub that is unbelieveably easy! (again, my kind of thing!)  I am going to use my lavender honey and make up a jar of this.  Thanks to The Idea Room for sharing such a great idea.

Nice idea and very simple.  I like the fact that you can change them out by just erasing the tag.  It's chalkboard paint!

Craft Monkey: Starfish Art

Ok, I couldn't go very far without posting something Coastal.  My favorite look.  It makes me feel so relaxed to see the ocean and anything having to do with the decor that reminds me of the beach.  This tutorial is so easy (I'm all about easy remember), but it has an expensive decorator look when finished.  Thanks to Craft Monkey for sharing!

the gilbert family: Project Linus

I really love this method of tying a fleece blanket for donating to Children's Hospital.  Project Linus is also a wonderful organization that makes blankets for hospitals.  If you want to donate one or use this method for your own little ones, give it a try.  It's fast and easy (my kind of craft!) and kids love them.  They don't end up with large tight knots.  Check it out at Gilbert Blog

Beginnings!

I guess I'm blogging now. This is all new to me, but I wanted to create a blog so that I can share some of the things I make and some of the things I find on the web. So many times I come across things that I would love to share, but don't have a central place to put them. I hope some of my readers will find them fun and helpful.
