Paper OR Plastic, Do they even ask that queation anymore at the grocery?
I made little floweretts and large crinkled leaves , little paint, ribbon and buttons.
It was a busy week end I kinda wish that there were more than 24 hours in the day because it is not enough time especially when the holidays swiftly approach. I can only find 1 store that will allow you to have paper bags instead and that's Publix, an upscale good quality grocery. I always ask for paper there is so many things I do with it. I put together this fall banner using one lg grocery bag. I use brown bags for things such as crafts, make little popcorn bags for that special movie the kids are watching. They can be decorated nicely for gift giving as well. Speaking of gift giving my teenage daughter announced that she was going to need some homemade gifts for Sunday ,she told me on Saturday night. No problem I'm used to that. She needed gifts for 4 year old so I whipped up a cute little apron and did some designs and stenciled her name it came out cute. I will share with you all later...also made a burlap personalized glass framed picture. We have also made some great country ornaments out of bags. The brown bag paper is durable to stencil, paint and work with. When I do homemade soaps at Christmas I wrap them up fancy with brown bag paper. Children love working with bags so next time your at the grocery ask for paper bags. Have fun!

Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
