Welcome to Main Ingredient Monday!
1 Main Ingredient + Tons of Creativity = 20 "New" and amazing projects
It is Earth Day on April 20 and I for one am always excited to celebrate ways to protect our Earth. You can still DIY and craft while being conscious of waste and creating extra junk to clutter our world. I love hunting treasures from thrift stores, dumpsters,and curbs. There are so many ways to revamp these old and worn out items to make them perfect for your home and family.
