So I whipped up a super quick gift for my kids' teachers,
and found a few more around the internet to give some last minute gift ideas.

Today I'm sharing the most simple, slacker way to make pillow covers.

How I shop at the Thrift Store

Thrift stores are pretty popular right now. 
It's the trendy thing to shop second hand.  Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and all that. 
But do you walk into the thrift store and turn right around because you're grossed out?

New use for an old lamp

Do you have things stashed in a closet, or in your garage and attic,
taking up space and collecting dust?
Then one day, inspiration strikes!!
You're able to use/reuse one of those items and give it a new life?  


This post is about just that sort of thing happening!
