Inspired by Michelle's fun tutorial, I decided to try my own variation on a cereal box tote for our trips to the library. I covered my box with fabric (instead of paper), and used mod podge. I think it turned out pretty good for a crafting newbie such as myself... What do you think??

I'm always looking for ways to cut down household costs, and even more so this summer. One thing that I have decided to do is to stop buying most household cleaners. Here are some great links to get started:

8 Smart Uses for Vinegar

Homemade Cleaning Products

Disinfecting Multi-surface Cleaner

Dishwasher Soap

Homemade Cleaners

As my current supply diminishes, I plan on implementing many of these tips, so I don't spend so much $$$ cleaning!

Do you have any "Green Clean" tips to share??

So for awhile I've been wanting some of these for my living room. Then a couple of weeks ago, I found some of these at the dollar store:
Now, don't look too closely, because it was my first attempt at mod podging anything, and I got a little impatient near the end.
Now, I tend to be a bit of a perfectionist, and as a result I think I "need" things to be more matchy-matchy. So at first I didn't really like how they turned out (the different patterns, etc.). But as they have sat on my mantle the past two days, they have started to grow on me....

I found this great little design shop downtown on Saturday. I LOVE that window/picture, especially the colors! They definitely don't match my house right now, but I think when I redo my bedroom I will HAVE to use some aqua.
