A great option to reduce your cell phone bill!

A few weeks ago, I told you a little bit about our plans to sell the house, everything we own, and become permanent travelers.  We are in the process now of getting our home ready for sale.  In fact, our new kitchen counters are going in as we speak!  I will be writing a post next week detailing how to choose the right countertops and what to look out for when choosing a vendor.

This week, I want to talk about phone service.  Our cell phones will pretty much be the only utility bill we will have while on the road.  Quality cell phone coverage is incredibly important to us as we will need it to communicate to the family, be available in cases of emergency, and of course, I definitely need access to the internet when wifi is not available.  But it is also important to us to pare down the bills we have to acceptable levels.  And that is where Virgin Mobile comes in.

Easy Halloween Hand Warmers!

s you probably already know, I love colorful projects.  For Halloween, I tend to go with neon green, bright orange and purple rather than just black and orange.  So when I ran across all the brightly colored holiday socks at Walmart, I had to snag a few.  And with a bit of adjustment, I created some fun Halloween Hand Warmers!

Fabric Softener Recycled Bottle Craft- Crocheted Purse

When the folks at Suavitel® asked me to try out their fabric softener that speeds up drying, I was very interested. You see, one of the things that we looked for when we purchased our RV was that it included a washer and dryer.  Since we plan on living in it full time, I did not want to spend a ton of time at laundromats.  Ah, college day memories…

Anyway, we discovered pretty quickly that the RV dryer takes a  lot of time to dry clothes. Sauvitel not only had a solution, but a pretty bottle to go along with it.  Hence, my Recycled Bottle Purse!

Fun DIY Santa Rake Door Greeter!

You know I’m a huge fan of creating from recycled materials.  I’ve made fun wall art from toilet paper tubes, art from recycled disposable aluminum pans, suncatchers from lids, and even art from magazine pages.  Today I’m going to share with you a project that I created from an old rake head.  A Santa Rake Door Greeter!

 Recently, at a flea market, I ran across a whole bunch of old metal rake heads without the handles. After staring at them a bit, I bought the batch of them and put them aside for inspiration. And then suddenly, I saw Santa whiskers and it was all downhill from there!  Soon, a Santa Rake Greeter came to be.  Want to know how?
