Hi Ladies! I am super excited to be featured on today's
blog post! What an honor. I
am here to share a few Fast and Easy ( and inexpensive ) ideas.
First up is my New Year's Survival kit. I don't
know how many out there are in the same boat I am this year, my youngest and my
niece are legal drinking age. This means it's the 1st time they are talking
about going 'OUT' for New Years. I have faith that I raised them to be
responsible young adults, but I am still a worried mom/aunt. So I made them a
New Year's Survival kit.
1 sheet 8/12 x 11
Make score lines @ 1/2" and 3"
Then flip it over and
score at 1/2" and 3" again
Cut it into 4 to make 4 'pillow boxes
Each one holds
chap stick ( for soft lips for new year's kiss )
- 1 mini tic tac ( for decent
breath for new year's kiss )
- a $5 bill ( I am buying first drink ).
writing important info inside ( in case they lose their phones or they run out
of battery ) The info includes -
- cab company info (with prepaid ride code that our local cab
- Designated Driver phone numbers ( hubby and uncle agreed to do
These are super fast and easy to make, and will fit in jeans pockets for easy
The 2nd project is a countdown board. I used TSB Image Snowman Father Time on several different types of boards and several themes as well. boards.
Dry erase board -
Kraft paper with a chipboard backing and shelf for large
dice to countdown to Christmas.
Blackboard - As I was making this one I decided to
leave off what we were counting down to.
So we used him to countdown to the
lightshow we went to, then to our 24th anniversary, then Christmas, now to New
Year's eve, then Hubby's Birthday, then eldest's birthday then Spring ( I think
you get the picture ).
Using Snowman Father Time you can count down to
anything. Imagine making one for a student's locker, days until big test, or winter
If you can't get a dry erase or chalk board you can paint anything with
chalkboard paint, OR do it on a picture frame.
Christmas may be over for this year but we have lots of winter left and being indoors means lots of craft time (
if we are lucky ) so have some fun, try new things. With all the holiday images
on sale and the new release coming out I am sure there is an image that will
call to you.
Enough rambling for now :) I hope these inspire you to make something and share
it with us.
