Homemade Mod Podge

We all know how expensive Mod Podge is at the craft store, right?  And since there are so many projects which use it, I thought I could find a homemade version online.  Love pinterest!  This is seriously the easiest DIY project I have ever done.
Supplies: A Jar (I rescued an empty Tostitos Creamy Spinach Dip Jar YUMMM which was on its way out to be recycled)Elmer's White Glue (I used two 4 fl oz bottles)Water Before I made the Mod Podge, I washed out the jar and spray painted the lid silver.  I also took off the label from the jar and did my best to get rid of all of the adhesive (first tried a paper towel and rubbing alcohol, but it didn't work and then I tried olive oil and it worked like a charm). Instructions: Empty glue into jarFill the empty glue bottle with water and pour into the new jar with the glue  (Ideally, you want 50% glue and 50% water)Shake, Shake, SHAKE the jar That's it!  You have made homemade mod podge!  EASY PEASY!
You can get a little fancy and create a lab…

Scarf Organization

Good morning all!  I wanted to share with you a quick and simple project for scarf organization that will give you a lot more room in your closet!
Here is a shot of my current scarf organization: The way it is now is nice because I can see all of my scarves and get to them easily.  However, I wanted to gain more room in my closet and looked on pinterest for inspiration!  I found scarf organization here and thought what a great idea!  She used shower rings to store her scarves on a wooden hanger.  I didn't have any extra shower rings lying around but I did have quite a few 2" book rings. Sorry for the blurriness.  I don't have a camera currently and am using my ancient phone which doesn't have a very good camera.
Here is the result: Look at all of the extra room I have!  Maybe it's time to go shopping??
