Wandering the Web~*

I've had a bit of time to surf the web...my favorite pastime {next to sewing & WOW}.  Along the way I've bookmarked sites to share.  Most of them tend to be how-to oriented 'cos that's the way my mind works...anyway.

You gotta check these out!

1.  Incredibly awesome things to do with contact paper


2.  Renowned graffiti artist, political activist & painter Banksy-- you must peruse his gallery, it is amazing.


3.  This shop is wonderfullly odd.  Seriously.  Check it out.


4.  Part of our attempt to eat more consciously involves making out menus for the week.  To that end, we've found some awesome recipe sites & here's one worth sharing!  Avocado wasabi soup?  Yes please~*


5.  Trying to find a color palette for a room redo?  Wondering what to paint a frame to match your existing decor?  This site will help you out!


6.  My wonderful hubby & I are going thrifting this afternoon {whilst the kinder are at school & whilst we are still on break.  Whilst.  I'm bringing it back.} So anyway.  We always frequent book shops & have often wondered what to do with books that are cool looking & ├╝ber cheap but too damaged for reading.  Welp, here's what you can do.  A lot of what you can dos, actually.  Sweet!



7.    Need to get it together & love a good craft?  Here are 25 ways to craft your way into gorgeous organization~*


8.  And since we are making lists, anyone else think Anthropologie is fantastic but way out of price range?  Here is a list of 25 Anthro-knock offs to make at a fraction of the price!



9.  Anyone else a compulsive glass jar hoarder?  Here are some great ideas for what to do with 'em.  Now if I could only find a companion what-to-do-with-glass-bottles list, I'll be in business.



10.  And last, but certainly not least, don't forget to enter my Firmoo giveaway!
