Cats, cats & …cats

If I could use my cat fabric on every craft project I probably would but then my house would just be cats everywhere. I made this plastic bag holder that fits nicely in the closet and holds the bags!

I had an extra shoe lace laying around that I used for the bottom and for the top I made a loop from heart ribbon for it to hang up.

Thanks for reading!

DIY Rustic Frame 


I’ve been looking for decor for the basement and saw some ideas on Pintrest. My mom was cleaning out her office and was throwing away this black frame with a tree picture. I started painting it white and then added a touch of grey paint. Once it dried I sanded the wood so the grey wasn’t as dark. 

For the H, that is the first letter in our last name. I used a gold paint pen, which drys super quick! 

The flower paper were hot glued onto the back and was bought at the dollar store. 

Thanks for coming to my blog!

I bought the fake flowers from the $1 store and cut them off the stem.

DIY Catnip

No, this is not what you are thinking….it’s CATNIP! >.< 

I am always looking for ways I can make my crafts cheaper. I started making cat toys with catnip inside. First went through 2 large containers and spent over $20.00. There has to be a inexpensive way! My mom started growing a catnip plant in her yard and tried to get rid of it … well it grew back like a weed so at least we won’t run out. 

First step is to grow your catnip plant. I wouldn’t use any fertilizers just simple water, dirt and sunshine. 

Once the catnip leaves are thumb size, cut them off at the stem into bunches. Tie them together with elastic bands or string works just as good. I used a hanger to then tie the bunches onto so it could be hung outside to dry. You can also leave them in a cold dry area. 

As you can see it grows like a weed!
