For Isabelle's birthday I wanted a pink galvanized tub. I couldn't find one..at least for a reasonable pricce. I ended up finding a white one at Target for 9.99. I had resigned myself to the white tub instead of what was in my mind. I know, get used to disappointment, right?
While I was at Jo Ann's, I found some nifty intricate die cut pink paper. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but I bought two pages for $1.99 each. Then, to finish birthday sabelle's present, i had bought some Modge Podge. When it came down to it, I chopped up the scrapbook paper into equal sections and modge podged it on, all around the tub. It turned out very cool.
If you can't tell I have been on a crafty kick lately. While I was looking for a wreath to make for my front door a couple of months ago, I accidentally stumbled upon The World of Craft Blogging. Wow...I got so many ideas and it really was light years away from your old country craft and macrame plant hangers. So if you are feeling thrifty or want to beautify your home on a budget...check out my list of crafty blogs I read on the side bar
