I am hooked on Pinterest and I found this awesome site Consignment Mommies today with all sorts of ideas of making Trash To Treasure items from old cribs.

Check it out! They have craft organizers, a child’s workstation, benches, chalkboards and much more all made from old cribs. So before you kick that ol’ crib to the curb there just may be something you can make from it.
I love how creative some of the bloggers are and taking things that would normally just be chunked into the trash, taking them and making them useful and beautiful.
I love photography, cooking, I love playing with my daughter’s Cricut but my newest fascination is with word art, subway art, whatever you want to call it. This is the first one I have created and I feel it needs a little tweeking but I like it so far. I have some other one’s in mind to play around with….the possibilities are endless.
As I posted on my Facebook page I attended a Pinterest party the other night. I was inspired by the Pastor’s wife, she was whipping up evergreen arrangements that looked awesome. I can not arrange flowers they look horrid when I get done but she said anyone can arrange evergreens and I said “not me” but I thought I would give it a whirl.
My window boxes look beautiful in the summer but in the winter they are flat out ugly. So I took her advice and clipped evergreens, holly and all sorts of shrubs in my yard and this is what I got. Doesn’t look too bad, does it? I see that my wreath is a little crooked (I can fix that) I am not coveting my neighbors shrubs with quite a few red berries~I need some color and I don’t think they will miss them. Is it stealing if I run over there and clip me some when they leave, haha?
I did this a few years ago and everyone loved it. It is easy to do just takes a little time and effort on your part. I wish I had a photo to share but I gave them all away as gifts and don’t have one of my own.
I typed up some of my favorite recipes and collected recipes from family members to include as well.
I purchased the Cook’n Software to create the recipe book You can order the Cook’n Recipe Organizer 8.2 for as low as $3.54 by clocking the link or the photo above. It numbers the pages and provided an index in the back. I loved this program.
I printed each recipe off on prepunched 8 1/2 x 11 printer paper and bought inexpensive notebooks with the clear pocket on the cover that you can add paper too.
A seamstress, I am NOT, you won’t find a bride wearing a wedding dress I made anytime soon. But I am learning a little at a time. I love The Missouri Star Quilt Company. They offer great videos and tutorials that are so easy to follow. These aprons are so cute and so easy! So easy that you can just whip up a few in time for the holidays. Aprons are back in style you know.
