Weekend Crafting...

Continuing with the cheap!  During Christmas, 'Bama Girl and I went shopping...are you shocked?  We went to The Old Farmer's Almanac General Store at the Shops of Grand River outlet mall.  And I saw this and wanted it:


The problem?  I didn't want to spend $10...told you I'm cheap!

So...I made this one:


Cost:  $1.00...I had the jar, bought hand soap with a pump at the Dollar Store!

And while I was at the Dollar Store I bought these:


And made these:


I had seen similar ones at home decor stores or in magazine and they cost anywhere from $14-$40!  Mine were $2.00!

               Happy Valentine's Day!
