Fire Starters

My friend Diane Bay Gilligan taught me how to do this. They work great and are super cheap to make.

I bought makeup pads at dollar tree. I got 80 for $1.00. I simply melted wax in my crock pot. I didn't have any crock pot liners left and I use this for food also. I tried a turkey bag and it worked great. Any candle wax works wick and all. We just removed the wick after it melted. Dip the pad and let it drip for a moment. Place on wax paper to cool.

Burning them - I found that you need to peel the wax off the edge slightly to light it. It took a minute or two to get going. After 10 minutes we put it out. They are wonderful.

Collection of shabby chic cards

I sent one off to my mom and stocked the card drawer with the others. It's been a awhile since I've added to the drawer. It felt good.

Trash to Treasure

Are you a pinterest junky? I am. There are some amazing ideas on there. I recently came across a dog bed that I instantly fell in love with. It was made out of an old tv. I remember seeing a tv like that at my dads. After plenty of begging, the tv was mine.
My loving bf and older son removed the tv parts for me. I cleaned it up and added a blanket for the dog plus his toys. Doesn't he look happy?

It's been a long time.

I know it's been a long time since I posted. Life as a single mom with four kids is crazy. I promise to try and be better. My boyfriend and I found this beauty FREE on the side of the road.
Can you believe it? Neither can I. It just needs a little tlc. So off to Walmart I went to buy some stain. I scrubbed the trunk and applied two coats of stain following the directions on the can. And now...

More vinyl fun.

My vinyl order came in! Ya hoo! I ordered from an amazing seller on ebay. cindy7890 I ordered it on Monday and had it in my mailbox on Wednesday. How is that for amazing service?!

I put this adorable little frog with his bugs up just inside my camper door. Now I can see him when I'm sitting at the table eating.

I used camping critters for the cuts once again. I must confess that I paid way more for this cart than I normally do. I had to have it when it first came out so I paid $45.00 for it. Gasp. I never spend more than $20.00 for a full cart now a days. I must say that it was totally worth the investment. This is definitely my favorite cart.

I finally made a page!

I finally found some time to make a scrapbook page. It seems like forever since I made the last one. I forgot how much I enjoy doing this.

The imagine makes this process so much easier and so much fun. I love being able to fill my cuts with printed paper without having to cut out a ton of little squares and line them up on my mat.
