30 ways you can reuse a household item found in your bathroom:

So, I have used a new toothbrush everyday for the past month. Sounds a little crazy right? Yea. When I noticed there was a monthly subscription about daily toothbrushes I may have rolled my eyes…and then googled toothbrush germs…and then about gagged. Did you know, the average toothbrush can be home to more than 100 million types of bacteria?! I know, so gross…but your mouth is full of bacteria & your toothbrush probably wont make you sick…but I do have a convenient, affordable solution for you to step up your oral health! Raise your hand if you thought about a trash can full of toothbrushes? That’s where my mind went. So I put my DIY head to work and came up with 30 ways you could reuse those brushes instead of trashing them.

  1. Cleaning Bathroom/Kitchen sink
  2. Cracks and crevices in the shower/tub
  3. Woodwork dusting – this is a fun chore you can have the kids do!
  4. Shoes! (Check out how I used one to scrub Jax’s smelly shoes here)
  5. Jewelry
  6. Giving some extra love to stains after using spray n’ wash, before throwing something in the wash.
  7. Car seats
  8. Car vents/cup holders
  9. Cleaning crayon from walls is
  10. Cleaning out the lint trap of the dryer
  11. The shower head
  12. Dust out the vent of your hair dryer
  13. Cleaning the holes in the pasta strainer
  14. Inside the Keurig
  15. Cleaning the hard to reach spots of the whisks and spatulas
  16. Cleaning remotes and keyboards
  17. Windows and doors
  18. Picture frames
  19. Applying dry shampoo
  20. bracelets — check out the how to Here!
  21. splatter paint fun!
  22. they’re nice to keep handy for any staining or texture top coat art projects!
  23. Plant in the garden bristles down and use the handle to make garden labels
  24. Keep one in your make up supplies to tame brows
  25. Cleaning fingernails
  26. Unclump mascara
  27. Scrub fish tanks
  28. Coloring your hair at home? Use a toothbrush to apply color to your roots
  29. Cleaning baby/kids toys
  30. Bringing Velcro back to life

Mom's Night Out – Hobby Pop Shop

My sister in law set her wreath down…smiled and said,

“I really needed this!”

Having adult conversation is hard to come by anymore. With a five and three year old by my side, I don’t get a word in edge wise. When my sister in law set her wreath down, smiled and said “I really needed this!”…I felt her pain when it comes to needing mom away time. With the overwhelming schedule of: back to school, soccer, boy scouts, work, meetings…it’s hard to find time to relax. We have to take a moment for our selves so we can come back ready to take all motherhood gives us with a clear mind. It made me feel good to have my sister in law out…enjoying friends, and making a fun craft!

We headed to Hobby Pop Shop on a Friday night. We were making fabric wreaths. Hobby Pop Shop charges $35 and provides all of the space & materials! You can give her color schemes, sports teams, holidays, etc. She has a ton of fabric to choose from to make your wreath just how you want. You can make other projects that she has listed or give her any ideas & she can make it happen! I want to do the stamped jewlery next!

When motherhood gets a little overwhelming…and it does…don’t feel guilty taking a time out. Call up your friends, plan a craft night, & relax. Talk about adult things, laugh, and have fun!

You have to put your airplane oxygen mask on FIRST so you’re able to help everyone else 🙂

Plan your next girls night out today! Check out Hobby Pop Shop & bring the kids back for drop in crafting!

A Witch Lives Here – DIY

witch.jpg
So I was at Marshals yesterday…they have the most adorable Halloween decorations out! I fell in love with a sign that said “A Witch & Her Little Mosters Live Here” but it was $8.99. Not too expensive, but like I’ve mentioned before…I’m thrifty.
I have a stock pile of these adorable Dollar Tree Frames..so I went on Pinterest looking for a cute saying to print out. I couldn’t find one that I really liked. So I made this 🙂
I thought I would share with you all!
You can right click to save the image. Print according the the size of your frame. Wahlah!
Enjoy!
