Laundry Soap

My friend Sarah and I decided to make laundry soap a few weeks ago.  I haven't posted about it on my blog until now because I could not get the lid off and my husband was never home when I needed it opened!

This is the website Laundry Soap where we found the recipe for the soap.  I have really liked it so far  and it was REALLY cheap!  I found everything at Dillon's. Since I did not take pictures while we made it, I only have the finished product.  The next time I make it I will probably add some scent since that it is the only thing that I miss about this soap.

 Finished Product- this is a 5 gallon bucket.

Jewelry Holder

Let me start off with saying that I suck at taking pictures.  I forget to take pictures before and during projects.  At the end of the project I finally remember to take a picture.....and I just don't take very good pictures!  So I have pictures for this post but I did not remember to take any until today....and the picture is bad because the jewelry holder has already been hung in the closet so I did not have the space to get a good picture!

On to the real reason for this post........

A few summers back I sold vegetables at a Farm and Art Market.  There was another girl there that sold these awesome looking jewelry holders.  I never ended up buying one from her during the summer.  After that I could not find a way to contact her. One day at Kirkland's I saw a similar jewelry holder.....but it was $50!  I did not want to spend that much.  That is when I decided to make my would be cheaper, right?  I went on Pinterest and found some ideas and tips on how to make one.  Below is a picture of the one I made.  I also made one for my Grandma.  For both of them I ended up spending close to $90.  It ended up being cheaper but not by much!

 You can't tell by the horrible picture but the earrings go in the holes of the 3 bars inside the frame.

Do I really have anything to blog about?

I have been toying around with the idea of starting a blog for a few weeks.  I decided to just take the plunge.  This blog will contain mostly recipes and craft/home projects that I do.  Brady and I are pretty frugal so occasionally I will share my "tips".  I promise that my posts will not be 20 pages long....I do not have the attention span to write that much in a blog!  I hope you enjoy!
