Thrifty Thursday #24

Confession.....this week has kind've kicked my backside.....I really try to "under" schedule myself (my family is laughing right now because I often fail miserably at doing that!)...but sometimes there are weeks where I get no break.....and this was one of them....


My fall piano lessons started and somehow from last year....my number of students has at least doubled....my kids started full days of homeschooling and I had numerous doctor appointments to run people to.....Do you ever have weeks like this??


My daugher's comment today...."Mommy, are you drinking Mountain Dew again??"  
Me....."Shh....don't tell, Daddy!"


So...while I tried to comment on all of your projects, it just didn't happen and I probably didn't even get to half of you.....Just know that I love looking at all of your ideas and even if I don't tell you...I luv' ya!


So here is a highlight of projects from last week's Thrifty Thursday.


How cute is this plaster tic-tac-toe board from Suzy's Artsy Craftsy Sitcom?


These candlestick holders from Burton Avenue were made from cereal boxes....yes!....cereal boxes!!



Eat Cake for Dinner outdid herself with these homemade snickers bars....YUM!!



I featured this on my FB page, but this felt make-up from Gluesticks was too cute not to feature again....what little girl would not love to play with this!



I just love this DIY jewelry holder from Crafting and Creativity.....in fact, I already started painting my own cabinet door to make one!



Conspicuous Style has a wonderful tutorial for how to make these monogrammed lampshades.....



This ric-rac blanket from Happy Hour Projects is such a cute gift idea and Adrianne says that it can be completed in an hour!
