Quick Tip: Cleaning Residue off of a glass jar

So I have this amazing jar that I thought would be perfect for a vase, BUT it had a sticker glued on it. They didn't want it coming off b/c it was stuck!
I soaked it in a little vinegar water, scrapped off the outer sticker and was left with the sticky residue. I looked up online natural tips on how to get it off and I found this tip!
Pour vegetable oil on it and let it sit for about 20 minutes. Then just scrap it off with your finger nail and wash with soap and water!
It worked great!
Go try it today!

The first project I would like to share with you is very cheap and easy.
I bought some frames at garage sales for .50 cents each and then my mother in law also contributed some to my collection for free!
I bought black spray paint for $2 a can and spray painted them all to match.
I also got scrape booking paper, cut it down to size and framed it out in a frame.
I printed out a silhouette for free from online.
and then lastly I had a decal left over from another project and so I used it for this project.
Arrange frames how you like them (there is really no art or science behind it, just having a good eye).
This project was so easy and cheap and it creates a great focal point in any room!
Have fun!

Home Sweet Home

So its been a VERY long time since I've posted anything on here!
There has been many changes in our household. Job changes,
my youngest son started kindergarden and I am happy to say that... my hubby and I have bought our first home!

I have found that getting a new home, especially a bigger one, can be expensive. There's alot more space to fill and you have to be more creative then ever on how you decorate to save costs!
I will be posting ideas for you on very low cost projects that you can do in your own home.
More posts coming soon.....!
