Happy Earth Day!  In honor of Earth Day, I wanted to share a special recycled craft I did with my daughter.  She may only be two, but crafting runs through my little one’s blood!  I love it!  We are always trying out different kid’s crafts.  Most of the time, I look for things around the […]

12 Recycled Book Page Crafts

by Dinah Wulf

Most of the 12 recycled book page crafts featured in this post all started from a book safe that I made a while ago.  I tucked away all the pages I hollowed out and put them with my scrapbook paper.  Every once in a while I’d get inspired and make something out of them.  Here […]

Lucky for me, I get to spend at least two times a week with my best friends and their kids.  We try to schedule play dates every Tuesday and Thursday.  Our little ones have become so close they treat each other like sisters (AKA, an occasional hit or raised voice).  Often times we try to […]

My best friend Jenny had a brilliant craft idea the other day (BTW, it was recently her birthday!  Happy Birthday, Best Friend!).  She told me that being the busy on the go mom that she is, she always keeps a large fast food plastic cup in her car for all the litter she accrues throughout […]

Glass jars are one of my most favorite things to hoard.  I mean repurpose.  First, because they are free, and secondly, because they’re pretty!  There is some sort of classic vintage aesthetic that comes with mason jars that I love.  I have done quite a few Mason jar crafts in the last two years so […]

Today I had to share my obsession with reuse and repurposing… either that or I’m a hoarder I haven’t quite figured that out yet or at least come to terms with “hoarding”.  I turned literal trash into a centerpiece and then into stuffed animal toy storage.  Yeah I know. I have issues. I originally found […]

The other day I asked on my Facebook page, “I made a decoupage pencil box out of a Crystal Light drink mix container… what else can I make/do with them?? Any ideas?”  I got some great suggestions.  In particular, I loved the comment made by Lorena Leon-Cruz when she said, “I use them to store […]

Being a known craft hoarder among my circle of friends, I am often given a craft challenge.  For example, my friend Amanda gave me a sandwich bag of coin wrappers and I made flowers out of them.  Most recently, my friend Jenny gave me some baby food jars.  With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner […]

I’m excited to partner up with Arrowhead® 100% Mountain Spring Water’s ReBorn™ Bottle made with 50% recycled plastic!

I went thrift store shopping the other day in search of some new projects and came up empty handed.  I even went to five different thrift stores.  On my way home I pass Goodwill.  Being the cheapskate I am I didn’t plan on stopping in because I think their prices are too high, but having […]

Ever since I started this blog, one of my besties tells me she finds it difficult to throw things away.  She said she thinks to herself, “Dinah could make something out of this.”  So, when I saw her the other day she handed me a baggie of coin wrappers.  “Here, make something out of this.”  […]
