It's about to get even MORE thrifty around here. We're getting serious about our budget, so that means less trips to the craft store. :(
BUT I couldn't LIVE without my crafts...so more resourceful I will get!

I dug these Popsicle sticks out of the garbage from this past summer...

Side Note: I had these displayed for a few days....when I caught the hubby staring at them. He says, "Where did you get the new frames?" To which I proudly replied, "Our basement!".......10 minutes later...."Oh, HEY, They're PUMPKINS!"
He CAN be TAUGHT!
