The big hit lately seems to be Word Art.
I just love the signs these days. Everything from Vintage looking Bath signs to Chic and Trendy Teenage sayings.

So I decided to make some. These pics are from the internet. I can't post the pics of the ones I made because some of you who may be reading this will be getting them for Christmas/other occasions coming up.

I will be however making some for my home and I'll post those pictures!

If you have the scrap wood and paint, the only cost is time.
To find signs I typed "Handmade Signs" or "Wooden Signs" into google
and clicked on Images

Materials needed:
Scrap Wood
Paint (can be bought at walmart for 45cents each color)
Paint Brush
Stencils (free templates are online to print or view)

Organic Gardening

Ok- SO I was all gunho on switching to Organic Gardening and lets just say it didn't work out quite right. Alot of the items did not compost down and it was a mess. So a local dump was giving out free compost, seriously rich and black compost. I received a truckload from a friend and planted in it. It worked great! Wonderful soil and fertilizer. Now that I have moved, If its possible I will be getting another truckload in 2010, the soil here is mostly clay.So lesson learned and money saved.

--on a side note, I will still be recycling into my garden my veggie scraps,fish tails, and egg shells this coming year.

An update to Saving Money on Weddings

Another idea is to use a barn of a friend or family member. We're hoping my brother and soon to be sis-n-law uses ours. I will start posting simple deco ideas with pictures.
