Inexpensive Vase for Floral Centerpiece

Or maybe a quick and easy
Thinking of You Gift . . .
I am in the midst of busy summer craziness, but I made a little video to show you how to turn a recycled bottle into a gorgeous and thoughtful little gift.

I just read Regina Brett's 45 life lessons and one of them reads,
"Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special."
So go pick a flower from your garden and make someone's day!

Mini Scrapbook for a Thank You Card

This is a thank you card for my daughter's piano teacher, but it's more than that. It's a little memory book that I hope she will put up on her piano to remind her of Katie. (She and her husband are moving to California.)

This was super easy to put together. Use a 12x12 and pull out your Scor-Pal. Score along one side at 4" and 8", then turn it 90 degrees and cut at 6". Accordion fold and adhere the two resulting panels end to end (one panel completely covers the other). The best part? It fits into the new Wal-Mart envelopes! This would make a great Father's Day card!
