    Homemade Kitchen Mat


    Here's another idea for color
    coordinating your kitchen :)

    Recycle your fabric stash or buy coordinating fabrics!

    I would love to make one out of jeans and red bandanas!

    Gorgeous table settings


    Love this table setting in my
     favorite color combination!

    One of the things that I love to do is have a nice table setting that doesn't include anything disposable.  For me, one of life's frugal indulgences is eating with non-plastic utensils, cloth napkins, glass dinnerware and lit candles.  Really, it is cheaper to eat this way when you think about it.  The only thing is that you actually have to wash dishes . . . unless you have a dishwasher.  That would be me in this house!

    Grocery Tote


    Although we recycle plastic grocery bags to the max, it would be
    nice to have a couple of these totes to try out.

    This tote is much prettier than the ones they sell at the store and
    look much sturdier.  

    There is also a tutorial for a thermal version for your hot and cold
    items . . . I would have never thought of that!  Great idea!

    Bold and Colorful Silk Jacket



    I love making "fabric" from recycled clothing!  

    Although this jacket is made from purchased silk fabric, 
    you could easily use the tutorial as inspiration and use
     what you already have in your stash.
