Thanksgiving Pictionary from Household Items

Somewhat Simple recently featured this project by Christine from I Dig Pinterest.  "You know how on Thanksgiving there’s always the time after eating until you feel like you’re going to burst, when you just want to sit and relax?" Christine asks.  "Well this is a perfectly low-maintenance game that will keep the kids occupied while you watch from the sofa." Somewhat Simple mason jar before

Thrift Finds Upcycled Into High Fashion

Over at The Felted Fox, Nicole is crazy good at turning worn out items into things of beauty.  "This time I decided to repurpose (or upcycle) an old thrift store dress I owned and had long gotten bored of," she tells us.  "It had been earmarked for the Goodwill pile, when I stumbled upon a photograph of Solange Knowles wearing a little cropped jacket and skirt combo."
