Sweet Ideas!

I decided to start a new category on this blog called “Sweet Ideas”. I really love the idea of using old stuff and up-cycling it to make it something completely different and useful. Or even using cheap everyday items to make something that you would normally have to pay lots of money for. And I will have to thank Pinterest for this category as most of the stuff I post will be from there. I will link the pictures/ideas to their original source so you can see the whole article. 🙂
