Can I just say that my sister Janel is brilliant? She hides her light under a bushel, truly. She didn’t even tell me about her blog’s new feature, Make-It Monday where she’s sharing ideas for homemade gifts. You will love her ideas about making a Playdough Kit. So clever and inexpensive. I never thought of buying bulk vinyl tablecloth from Walmart and cutting it down to size for individual placements. Genius!
A few other “Hey! That’s cool! I can do that!”
Thinking of using fresh squash or pumpkin in recipes this year instead of canned? Amy at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free has a great tutorial on how to roast a pumpkin (and the seeds) in the oven. Yummy for pumpkin pies!
Small Notebook’s Walnut Ornaments would make really cute place cards at your holiday table.
While you’ve still got fallen leaves on the ground, now’s a great time to start a compost bin. The Happy Housewife offers a great tutorial on how to do it yourself. And I’m thinking it would only cost about ten bucks at Walmart.
