Minnie (Long Hair Mixed Breed)We took three kittens from a friend, who couldn't take care of them, and this kitten was just adopted to a new home a few days ago. She is doing wonderfully. The other two were also adopted the previous day.
Neck Pillows for Kitten PlaytimeI have found that 6 week old kittens love to play on, in, and around neck pillows that are 'u' shaped. They also love playing and climbing through my big rolling basket on wheels.
Sophie (Tortoise Shell)This was a kitten we raised at our house and kept....a rescue. Sophie cuddles and follows me around when she is not sleeping.
Bottle Top Dish Covers for the RefrigeratorThe bottle tops with their lids make perfect bowl covers for the refrigerator. This particular one is from a white vinegar bottle.
Cream Cheese Cranberry Frozen LoafThis is a frozen cake dessert that has Cool Whip, cranberries, angel food cake, and cream cheese. This recipe is like frozen cakes you buy at the store, only better.
Yarn Cozy PocketI love blue jeans pockets. I sewed two strips of fabric to a pocket, salvaged from a pair of jeans, and put Velcro on the ends. Now my yarn holds it's own crochet hook and scissors :)
Two Ingredient BiscuitsThese biscuits are made with whipping cream and self rising flour. These are the only two ingredients.
Homemade Bouillon Free Dry Onion Soup MixThis is better than the onion soup mixes that come in an envelope you buy at the store.
Pill Organizers for JewelryWeekday pill organizers like the one pictured can be used to plan what earrings will be worn on which day of the week. Bobby pins fit also fit in this particular one, and rings as well.
Old Fashioned Rice PuddingThis is a rice pudding that has Splenda in the place of sugar and almond milk in the place of dairy milk. It is an excellent side to a Thanksgiving dinner.
Bring Fruit to Potlucks or Church DinnersWe recently attending a cookout at church People often pick up cookies or cokes or something processed to bring. I think blueberries are a great food to bring because they have so many vitamins and antioxidants in them. So I will be bringing blueberries, strawberries, and other wonderful real food to all the meals I attend.
Beautiful Thoughts on a Frugal LifeIt seems as if others are learning for the first time how to be frugal and enjoy it, which I have known all along, but now that prices at the pump are at an all time high, I am so happy I know how to save money!
Bath Poufs for Craft RibbonsI found this lovely holiday bath pouf on sale for a dollar. I love the color green and the gold edging that sparkles.
Fluffy Plastic Storage CubeI had a storage cube that I was using for my pills and vitamins. I also had a lot of long fabric strips. I put the two together by trying bows through the holes and the result was a fluffy version of what I had before. I love it.
Cheese Spreaders as Stick PuppetsI keep all the little cheese spreaders that come with the crackers and cheese sets. The little plastic spreaders can be used for plant labels, for digging holes for seeds, or for cutting Playdoh. I used mine to make little seasonal puppets.
Muscovy DucklingThis baby came from mama duck, whose name is Wings. She is a very good mama ;) This is one of our 9 Muscovy babies.
This baby is so pretty, and sweet. She (or he) needed a bath and some cuddles. I had to share ;)
Distressing Paper with an Ink PadI am distressing a paper image in order to make it look vintage. I love making paper crafts and journals of all kinds. I went a bit far with the ink and foam brush, but the image looks awesome anyway ;)
Notepad Stocking StuffersI love recycling paper into usable things that I need. When I am thinking of gifts to give to others - my first thought is to ask myself whether this gift would make me happy. This little adorable memo pad certainly would make me happy ;)
