Occasionally, I get the urge to 'create' something. Actually, that urge hits quite often but I generally ignore it b/c A) what I want to create and what I actually make are never the same and/or B) materials cost more than I want to spend.
But sometimes I'll run across a DIY tutorial on FB or Pinterest and think 'Hey, that's something even *I* can do!'
One such tutorial was making wipes using a paper towel roll cut in half, vinegar, rubbing alcohol, water and essential oils and then placing the whole thing in a coffee can. Suh-weet! (That's the purple one on the left saying "You Make It? You Clean It."
Next in the pic is a Lysol Wipes container that now stores those annoying plastic bags that take up so much room and finally the black on the right is my own "creation" (meaning I didn't steal this idea from FB or Pinterest but thought of it on my own) that stores the coffee filters.
This one isn't necessarily a DIY as all I did was have John cut a slit out of the plastic lid and then I printed "Trip Fund!" and taped it to a jar for my clients. Watching your money "grow" is always so much more fun. :-)
Whenever I succeed in my ideas actually working in real life, it makes me happy b/c let me tell ya, it doesn't happen often! LOL
