The Easiest Scrapbook ever!

Standard

Okay so I am the biggest scrapbooker ever!  I eat, live and try to do it with the help of my daughter.  But if you want a wonderful scrapbook for a friend try this out.  Buy a photo album!  Yes I said photo albulm.  Make it one that has only two or three slots for pictures.  Place your favorite picture in one slot and a hand written note on a card (recipe card works) or colored paper trimmed to fit in the other slot.  It is nice to have a funny story, quote, or poem to go along with pictures and to let the person know your really thinking of them.  You may add stickers or what ever to the pages to jazz them up a bit.  But it is a cheap way to scrapbook with a lot of personal thought into it.  Trust me your friends will enjoy their new found remember when book.

Make the kitchen smell and look good

Standard

If you are into Coffee-turn your kitchen into a Aromic Cafe.  There are several coffee themed pictures and kitchen towels you can buy in the stores but why not take a step further.   You can go to any thrift store, goodwill or yard sale and purchase old coffee carafes.  If they are glass you can use a dremel tool to cut a whole in the side of the carafe that would not be facing where people look and just make it big enough for a mini christmas white light set to go through.  (just the lights go through not the plug part)  This can be the battery operated kind or the plug in type of lights.  Once you have the lights through make sure all the lights are out at the top of the carafe.  Then slowly start filling with your favorite coffee beans and inter-twining the lights throught the beans.  Then plug in your carafe and the lights will warm up the beans and fill your kitchen with your favorite smell.

Today I start the blog

Standard

I just wanted to start a blog to help others out in savings some money with some thrifty ideas.  I am a crafty person who is disabled and I have to find ways to save money.  And what better way to help others than to blog about it.  I want to keep you up to date and the latest things, such as recipes, freebies and crafting and some news.  I am not a political person so not much talking on politics.  So as soon as I figure this whol blog thing out this page will be up and running.
