Wild Hair


This week I had a little bit of a wild hair and decided to do a craft project one night. I had seen a project online on one of my craft websites to make a wine cork board. I decided this may be a nice project to make to go into our new apartment. It was pretty simple. I brought a wooden picture frame from Walgreens. Then a mom on my mother's website gave me a grocery bag full of wine corks to use. It took me a little while to get the arrangement of corks just right to fit in the frame. Once I got the layout down I took my hot glue gun out and started gluing them down. Luckily I only burned myself once. I believe my first attempt at a wine cork board turned out pretty good.


Now for a totally different topic, I finally got my free Earthbound Farm Organic tote bag in the mail. Ever since a friend of mine told me about Freebies 4 Mom, a coupon, free sample, and deals kind of website I have been crazy about getting free samples in the mail. Reiggin likes to laugh at me and says that there is no free sample out there that I will say no too. I believe the free tote bag has been one of the best things I have gotten so far. I have decided I am going to try to start using reuseable bags at the grocery store. So last night when I made my trip to Food Lion, I had my Earthbound Farm Organics tote bag with me. As I am checking out, the manager and myself couldn't help but laugh at the fact that I was loading my ORGANIC bag full of frozen processed foods. Oh well at least I was cutting down on the my use of plastic bags. Baby steps is what I keep telling myself. I plan to get a few more bags from Walgreens so next time I go grocery shopping I won't have to use any plastic bags.
