    1. I love projects that I can recycle items from around the house. It is one small way I can cut down on landfill pile up plus it keeps my costs down when I feel the urge to be creative. :)

  14. I found your post at Family Fun Friday. I love all your ideas for things to do with old jeans! We have lots of old jeans around here! We also have a 6 year old boy who wears the knees out of his jeans faster than we can keep up with! So far our old denim gets turned into patches for his pants :) Maybe I'll eventually be able to do something else with the old jeans!
