Bargain Brag Wednesday

October 26, 2011



I started work on my Halloween costume this past week--I'm going to be an owl. It's going to be super cute! And the whole thing cost me under $15 to make. And when I say "make" there isn't any sewing involved. Yay! I'll share more later, when the project is completed. We also recently did a $10 "curb appeal" makeover on our house's shutters. What a difference! They were faded, chipped blue monstrosities, and now they look almost-new. We opted to paint them black to match the feel of the other houses on our block, and add a little class to our small little house. And we love it! Can't wait to share pics of that, too. I love it when projects come together so nicely and don't cost much of anything at all! In other news, I just had my first sewing machine lesson! Yay! I think I could successfully thread my machine on my own now--thanks to a good friend/neighbor who showed me how to do it!

      Bargain Brag Wednesday

      October 19, 2011



      "Happy Winds-day, Piglet!" Hope you're all doing well today! Halloween is fast approaching. Do you have your costume ideas all set, yet? My husband and I are attending a party this year, and I just figured out what we're going to be...but you'll have to wait to find out. However, I'm still up in the air as to what my daughter should be. She's under 3 -years-old, and changes her mind every time I ask her what she wants to be. Today it's a butterfly, sometimes it's a queen. I'd love to see her be either a dinosaur or a cowgirl, but I don't know how she'd feel about that. She likes those ideas, and then quickly changes her mind to something more girly. What should I do?! Just pick one, or take her with me and have her pick it out, or what? What are you planning to be for Halloween? Are you springing for an expensive costume, or creating it yourself on the cheap? I'd love to hear your plans! I also picked up my first bottle of Mod Podge this week! I'm so excited! How should I use it?
