Trying to go GREEN!

Well folks, it's official.  I am trying to go green. I have found a lot of help with this on Pinterest of all places.  I have tried several homemade cleaners, carpet shampoo, dryer sheets, and air freshners.  These were my project tonight.  I made several apple/cinnamon and one vanilla scented tonight. 

Come on over and follow me on Pinterest and just in case you don't do Pinterest, below is the link to make these awesome homemade air freshners.

Also, my kids love and I mean love to paint in the tub and we all know how much bathtub paint can cost.  I am all about making it myself and I finally found a recipe.  I also made this tonight for my two little ones and it is amazing.  Not only did they have a blast with it, but it was easy for me to clean.  I found this on Pinterest too.  Below is the link if you would like to try this paint for your little one.

Happy Creating and I'll see you again soon!

Mod Podge

I don't know how many of you have ever tried Mod Podge, but this stuff is great!  I am addicted to projects which require it.  There are limitless possibilities with it.   You can dress up practically any project and turn something old into something new.

Not to long ago, I discovered this project using a new product from Mod Podge called Dimensional Magic. Now, I have not tried this yet, but I have gathered the supplies I need and will be trying it soon and when I do, I will post my results.  I'm sure it will be well worth my time and effort.  It makes such a cute little project that you could use yourself or give as a gift. 

How many of you have used Mod Podge for a project?  What was the project and how did it turn out?  Leave a comment and let me know.

New Year....New Outlook

Well here I am again!  I am so totally sorry that it has been so long since my last post.  I have been extremely busy with school, my little munchkins and life in general.  It has been a mad house around here, especially around Christmas.  Now all the hoopla is dying down and I can hopefully refocus and be better about blogging in the coming year. 

In the recent past, I have found Pinterest.  If you have not checked it out, you should.  It has loads and loads of cool ideas and projects.  I have found so many useful things and things that I want to try.

I hope that everyone has had a Merry Christmas and will have a fabulous 2012.
