Valentine’s Day – Not the holiday typically set aside for handmade / recycled gifts, unless they’re from your 5 year-old. Or so I thought. Keep your flowers and chocolates – I totally want this.

I’m addicted to these – and I don’t care who knows it.
I love to make them and I love to use them.
I’m always on the lookout for cool ideas – if I were making a list this would be at the top.
Evidently there is a woman in our community who upcycles clothespins into donations. The best part is that the Healdsburg Animal Shelter, Senior Center, Boys & Girls Club and Food Pantry will all benefit from her kindness. The second best part is that I get to keep the cute Christmas clothespin!
I was visiting my super-awesome-sister, who also happens to be super-awesome-thrifty, she was mid-painting when I noticed she was using a plastic movie case as a painting palette. check out some of her super-awesome-paintings at www.etsy.com/shop/jeney.
Plarn (plastic yarn) is made from plastic grocery bags cut into strips then crocheted to create virtually anything – In this case we’re using a grocery bag to create … a grocery bag.
My plan is to blow all my Swagbucks on Amazon gift cards and post those cards to my Amazon account. Then I’ll order all my Christmas gift from Amazon.com and Viola! – Free Christmas!

At the Samaritans Purse website that whopping 4 bucks will provide a child with milk for an entire week.

I love getting Christmas cards – I love it so much I want to marry it.
