    DIY Blush


    Who wouldn't want to at least try to make
     blush that ends up costing a penny or two?

    What a wonderfully frugal idea!!

    This project comes from one of my newest
     blog discoveries, My American Confessions.

    Mini Muffin Box



    What an awesome idea!

    You could also use these little boxes
     for cookies and candies.

    They are so nice and compact . . . 
    would be great for storage of little stuff.

    This awesome project comes from one of my
     new blog discoveries, Desperate Craftwives.

    Ribbon scarf . . . fabric manipulation



    Although I like the scarf, what I am really impressed
     with is the technique for making the fabric.

    The possibilities are endless with this method of fabric manipulation.  What first comes to mind for me is denim and lace for a purse over another piece of fabric.  It would also be awesome for refashioning t-shirts with cutouts and reverse applique.  

    Love this!!  And it is so easy . . . check it out!

    Homemade Hair Treatments


    We tend to torture and torment our hair on a daily basis with curling irons, hair straighteners, blow dryers, chemical treatments and exposure to the sun.  Then we spend all kinds of money on expensive treatments to make up for the abuse.

    No matter what type of hair you have, there is a natural treatment that you can make at home for a lot less money and just as effective (or better) than those expensive concoctions that contain all types of chemicals.  

    Don't you hate it when you spend a lot of money on one of these products and that just don't work for you?

    I went on a search for hair care and found an awesome website, Dreamy Hairstyles.  This website has great information on all things hair, but in particular, I loved an excellent article on homemade hair treatments.
