“Scrap Snack Mix”
So, we all have some things sitting around in our cupboards that, in theory, are “snacky”. But, when we look at them individually we kinda think aren’t really appealing. My kid’s snack cupboard was getting low…so, here was my 5 minute solution.
Mix #1: last 1/3 cup of pumpkin flavored “chocolate chips”, 1/3 cup raisins, 1/3 cup salted peanuts, 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, 1/2 cup of the end of a box of cheerios no one was interested in.
Mix #2: 1/3 cup raisins, 1/4 (end of a bag) cup cherry flavored dried cranberries, 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes, 1/2 cup cup of the same cheerios, 1/4 cup chocolate chips, 1/3 cup homemade cinnamon apple chips that needed used up.
They taste pretty great when you get a little of everything in a bite. The sky is the limit!
Fabric Swatch Art:
A friend of mine recently told me that Joybird.com sends out swatches of their high end fabric they use on their furniture for FREE. She grabbed up a set and is excited to dream and then create some sort of craft/art. I decided to do the same…
My friend also gave me this frame at the recent yard sale and I decided I would love to create some art for it. So, I grabbed the used yard sale sign poster-board and a glue gun and started creating. It was invigorating! Plus, it turned out awesome! (And, it was free!)
I also had a killer price match/couponing grocery trip today. (I got a dozen eggs for $.09 on top of great price matching on everything I needed.)
