I really need to curb my obsession with late night Pinterest ideas...
I saw this blog post on Poppytalk: a DIY on watercolor mugs.
I bought $0.88 mugs at Walmart. It might have been the nailpolish I used but mine didn't spread around like Poppytalk's, even with a skewer. It actually stuck to the skewer in the warm water. Maybe you'd have more luck. Not bad for $0.88+tax though! I made another for my son's teacher for Valentine's Day.

Saw this blogpost from According to Kelly on making Tiered Trays from supplies from Dollar Tree.
Although I only needed 2 tiers for my nail polish and I spray painted it with chalk board paint so that if I want to write or if I accidentally spill some nail polish on it multiple time, it will still look fun. I already had the E6000 glue and spray paint so it only cost me $3 to make, 2 trays & one glass candlestick holder from Dollar Tree.

I have so many scarfs that I love and enjoy that I wanted to organize them on the back of my door. I saw this Sally Ann blog post on Pinterest , during one of my late night searching parties, and realized I had everything on hand to make it.
I took a piece of wood from my old fence and broke it to the size I needed with my foot. Primitive. Took a hammer to the ends to knock off the splintered wood. Spray painted clothespins and when they were dry, I eye-balled where they should go. Used E6000 glue to adhere them to the board. Screwed in eye screws on the top and threaded framing wire.
Every week I try to bless my son's teacher with something. Searching Pinterest, my late night obsession, I found this great post for teachers that is a great incentive for the younger grades. We bought crazy straws at Dollar Tree yesterday, I made Caught-You-Being-CRAZY-Good in a Word document, then put them together. Took me less than 10 minutes from start to finish to put them together and that I only spent $3 to help our favorite teacher this year...BONUS!
The Lemonade Stand has a fantastic blog post about these!
