Wedding Card Craft

I never would have guessed how many cards couples get when they get married until I was sitting at my kitchen table with my new husband, ripping open hundreds of envelopes! Obviously, we read all of the cards, took all of the money out of the cards, and decided how to spend it wisely (the most exciting part). But then what?

Yard Sale Advertising

Yard Sale Finds

I don’t know how anyone could not love yard sales! It’s super fun to see all of the neat stuff that people have, but you can also get things for super cheap!! What’s not to love?

I got a bucket and estimated equal parts white vinegar and Dawn dish soap and then added some baking soda (maybe a little more than half as much as each of the other ingredients). Continue reading
