This new series will go hand-in-hand with my Decorating Dummy series that I’ve been working on for eons. It’s so sad, really. I had a *holy moly* moment yesterday when I realized our living room wasn’t done and I’m only a few short weeks away from putting up Christmas decorations. Needless to say, what was already a high gear project has now become a speed of light project. Phooey, that just seems to be the only way to get things done around here. And it WILL get done….eventually. Just remember the *Dummy* part of that series…it is instrumental in the delay, I assure you. Hah!
In the meantime, let’s start another new series while we’re waiting around. This one will feature nifty DIY recipes just like this one, so you can recreate some of your favorite things for pennies. Please send along your fabulous finds, too! The only criterion I have is that I’ve got to be able to do it….and I can barely do laundry. Ya get me? ;)
Our fabulous reader and contributor Katie found this easier than easy DIY project at Meet The Dubiens for flavored lip gloss using only two ingredients – Vaseline and Kool Aid Drink crystals. If you’re feeling especially ambitious, you can dress up your creation with some cute little jars (Michael’s, AC Moore) and you’ve got a darling gift!
