So apparently when you are on maternity leave, and your almost 8 month old is finally having longer naps, you get the craving to craft. I saw these on pinterest awhile ago, so thought i’d give them a try. I bought some selfset air-dry clay and rolled them out into small, flat logs. I then used my small alphabet stamps and indented herb names into them.

Damask DIY

While the boyfriend is away, the girlfriend will… get inspired and spend a Saturday night in sweatpants making DIY art. Thought I was going to say play, didn’t you?

We’ve been “playing” way too much lately; with a slew of weddings, birthdays, general summer events and our always looming renos I’ve been fairly absent as a Experimental Housewife, my apologies! So last night, with Cody in Toronto at another wedding, I channeled my single days and got crafty, I really hope you like it!

garage sale find

recyclingEvery Saturday ( as long as the weather is nice) I go garage saling with my mom in the ‘burbs’ of Tsawwassen. The etiquette of garage saling is that you never ever pay full price, or at least you try not to. It’s stuff you are trying to get rid of. It amazes that some people won’t sell off something that they’ve obviously decided that they no longer needed for a measly 25ยข off what they initially wanted.

This is newest pride and joy for taking leftovers to work. It is originally for Indian food and has three different sections all held together with a metal latch.

It’s easy to clean and travels great.

Best of all, there was a $3 price tag on it and I paid $1. Bargain!
