I love spray paint.  No, not like this guy, but I love using it for craft projects and I enjoy how quickly it can transform objects without endless coats of paint and patience. Take this mirror for example.  Because there is a medicine cabinet behind the mirror, removing the entire unit would be necessary to replace … by cheryl

Ever since my son was diagnosed with life-threatening food allergies, baking became a challenge.  I really wanted to make him special treats occasionally but some ingredients like chocolate chips were hard to find without dairy in them. As time went on, dairy-free chocolate chips showed up in the stores, but their price was a little prohibitive for a frugal shopper like myself.  (And allergy-free white chocolate chips are still pretty much non existent.)

I grabbed two clear plastic paint cans from Michael's craft store for $2.00 each and filled them with candy (as labeled on the tag).   Last, but definitely not least, I made my parent volunteer some thank you gifts.  This idea comes from Event Trender.  Put a green apple and jar of homemade dip in a clear cello bag, add a tag and hopefully it gets the message across of just how much I have loved and appreciated my parent volunteers this year! by marietta

Dryer Vent Pumpkin
For those of you who maybe haven't see this industrial pumpkin before, here is what you need: Dryer vent (purchased at your local hardware store), orange spray paint, a stem (I used cinnamon sticks, but you can use sticks or whatever you want), and a little bit of raffia. I cut and glued the vent into a donut using hot glue. Then I spray painted the whole thing, making sure to get in all the groves. Attach the cinnamon sticks by Tonya Ford Ashley

Krud Kutter Gloss-Off, GREAT- all-in-one cleaner AND deglosser. Advance paint. Oh. my. goodness. The paint store guy/expert said, "It's revolutionary." He said that it's basically an oil-based paint that acts like a latex (even though it is a latex paint). You get all of the good points of an oil-based paint, with none of the negative. It hardens like an oil, wears like an oil, but cleans up like a latex and it doesn't smell like an oil! by grace
