Crafting can get expensive. So, I try to find as many ways as possible to save money. Here are a couple of ways I have found recently.
I've been playing around with making homemade glimmer mist. I watched several You Tube videos about it. So, I made a green and copper colored one but I didn't have any spray bottles. My Aunt went through her cupboards and found a bunch of things she didn't want including two bottles of body spray. I don't use body spray or any other perfume because it gives me headaches. So, I took the bottles and tossed the perfume.
I made two colors of homemade semi-sparkly paint today.
I sprayed some scrap paper, lace, and flowers with both colors. I think they turned out nice. I could have made half as much as I did but oh well. I'll have plenty for experimenting. The flowers were white.
My husband and I were married on May 20, 2000. I saved my bouquet. It was displayed in our living room for a long time but it has been in our closet for the last several years. My husband doesn't love the idea, but I have decided to take it apart and use the flowers and pearl strands for different projects. It's just taking up space in the closet. What am I going to do with the thing if I don't craft with it? It's falling apart anyway.
So, here it is with only a couple of flowers missing so far.
