2. I cannot sew. It pains me. In an effort to "get over it" I gave away my sewing machine.
3. I have a TON of crafting materials (that don't involve #2 above) and have really enjoyed getting my hands dirty again!
4. There's no extra funds in the budget. None of this has cost me more than $5 per project.
Here's a sampling....
Canvas + Tacky Glue + White Spray Paint= Adorable wall art for nursery
$2 Goodwill Frame + Sandpaper + black paint + Scrapbook paper = Menu for kitchen
Old toy box + paint = Fun wall art for b-day gift
