Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Friday!!
I want to start out by saying that I have heard from a number of people that they are having computer issues with Frugal Friday. And I want you to know that I am working to resolve those issues as quickly as I can. So hang tough, my dear readers. I hope to have it all fixed very soon!
It's been a long week for me kids. I was laid up with a wicked case of Food Poisoning for almost 2 days. Grrr. Not fun right before Christmas. Now I'm trying to make up for lost time.
If you're in a similar boat - not the food poisoning boat, but the in-a-hurry-to-get-stuff-done boat - you'll find tons of inspiration waiting for you in last week's party.
Here's just a bit...
The Fan Favorite from last week was posted by Shopgirl. She shared her almost-too-pretty-to-eat Medovniky Gingerbread Cookies. She even includes the recipe...so you can make some yourself!
Now for my Frugal Round-up...
First up, these pretty DIY Frosty Ice Branches shared by The V-Spot. I'm thinking I'm going to have to try this. They're just lovely!
Next, I Gotta Create shared these lovely DIY cards. Can you guess what she made those darling snowflakes out of? Can ya? Huh, huh? Can ya? The answer is tinfoil. No, really. And she'll show you how to make them as well.
Twice Lovely shared her perfectly perfect curbside-rescue chest makeover. I've been wanting to add mirrors to a piece of furniture...after seeing this little redo, I've absolutely GOT TO DO IT!
Finally, Make It Give It shared her sophisticated salt dough ornaments. These are much nicer than the version the kiddos and I made earlier this month (epic fail for mom...not so bad for the kids). I'm going to give her technique a try next time.
Now it's your turn!
