Tipsy Tuesday


Hello peeps, and welcome to my new feature---Tipsy Tuesday. So, let's all go get our favorite libation and get to work!
LOL! OK, ok.....not that kind of tipsy, but TIP-sy. I always love to get tips that are useful in my home or crafting, how about you? I thought I'd offer up a helpful hint or tip or share a gadget that has been useful to me. I'd love it if you would share your tips too--either post one on your own blog and shoot me a link--I'll add it to my next week's Tipsy Tuesday post OR just share it in the comments here and I'll do the same thing. Yeah!!

I've been trying to get a little crafting done (trying!) - the kids are back to school now and things are starting to slow down to a manageable level. My local quilt shop runs a Fat Quarter sale every so often where you go pick out 20 fat quarters for a special price (yeah, love THAT!) and I found this darling fabric at the most recent one---- and made a cute bag from it !And a little matching wallet too

And then another wallet in black and white dots--with blue as the accent color Which leads me to my first TIP! Well, it's a gadget actually. Who puts snaps in their items?? Pain in the booty, right? I've even looked into getting a snap setter machine, but the prices are WAY out of my price range! One day I ran across this little baby, The SnapSetter, and it was so reasonably priced that I thought, "what the heck--I'll give it a shot!". Let me tell you, folks, it's a dream. Yup. No more wrecked items from trying to remove those stupid snaps that went on crooked. It's so simple, yet effective and easy to use! I just love it.You follow the manufacturer's simple directions, smack it with a hammer, and that's it! I am not being paid at all for mentioning this, but.... if someone from The SnapSetter happens to see this and feels like gifting me with some free snaps...well, I guess I could be all right with that! LOL
Well, that's it for today. Remember to share your helpful tips and hints--I'd sure appreciate it!

I get to go and babysit my little nephew later on today while Paul goes in for his radiation treatment- I love 3 year olds and I'm really looking forward to it!
Bye for now :o) Hugs.

What a great idea. My favorite air freshener can be bought at Walmart--Pure Citrus Orange. It is real citrus and smells so fresh. I could buy it by the case.

I love your little bag--such a cute print.
