Caca Pourri DIY & Back To School

We all love DIY articles, but have you ever tried them?  We do constantly here at 2DaintyCrafters.  We share our successes as well as our epic failures.  I have chosen 4 variations of recipes I found online in Pinterest.  To be honest they are almost all the same.  What seems to vary is scent and type of alcohol. 
Have any of you ever bought the Poo Pourri?  I couldn't afford the 9.95-26.99 they wanted, even though it was a big bottle.  I mean no disrespect to them.  I am sure the product is wonderful.
If you want buy some and not make it yourself here is their site:   http://www.poopourri.com/collections/all-products
You should go check out their website just to watch the commercial.  It's stinkin hilarious!!!

Today I am making it for the 1st time.  Over the next few weeks, we will be trying it out and doing a follow up at a later date.

The cute labels I did at Avery   http://www.avery.com/avery/en_us/Templates-&-Software/Software/Avery-Design--Print-Online.htm
I love the fact Avery has stepped up and expanded our options.  I love this FREE site!
They cover everything you could possibly want to make for a label.
Thanks AWESOME Designers at Avery, your work is appreciated!

This month has flown by.  I (Shelley)usually have this month as my down time.  For the 1st time ever in over 15 years, I have been so dang busy.  I made some cup cozies, pens for work(I will do a post at a later date), working with new mediums for card designs, made a bunch of cool new cards & used some new tools.  I am supposed to be tearing up carpeting that my naughty doggy wrecked, but oh well there is always next month.  I know there is more I am forgetting, but I need to get back to finishing this post!!




PSA
Dear Parents,
It is Back to School already. Whether you Home School, Public or Private,  please get your supply lists together and take stock of what you have at home.  BTS(back to school) Sales have already started.  Please take advantage of them and save some $$$.
Avery had this on their site http://www.avery.com/avery/en_us/Products/Avery-Back-to-School-2016.htm?int_id=DPOstartpage-bts2016lp 
If you need someone to watch the sales for you and notify you check out the Krazy Coupon Lady@
http://thekrazycouponlady.com/ 
I(Shelley) do my best to hook you up with the right deals, businesses, and people who can help you. 
We receive no compensation for any of this. We are just paying it forward!!!
Remember, if you are having trouble with affording School Supplies.  Check with your local school or county and see what community out reach programs are available to help you.  There is no shame in asking for help.
We are all on this planet together, let us help one another and lift each other up.
In fact I challenge anyone who can donate $10.00 or ten dollars worth of supplies to your local
BTS drive.  I will be doing that one using the sales going on right now.
Thanks for listening,
Shelley


 This is Alyssa, and holy carp, have I been busy with homeschool prep! I spent all of today, cutting, printing, pasting, and organizing, and I have now one week, for one child, ready. Only 35 weeks to go! Oye... You can follow my pictures on Instagram, either at @2daintycrafters, or my personal one, @mistressoftheknit. I am still knitting and crocheting in my down time, and I do have a post on camping coming up! Thanks for all your patience, dear readers! Love, Alyssa :)
