Do you repurpose???

How is everyone doing today? This is how my day is going so far. Up at 1am with Ben- up at 3am with Ben (gave him some pain meds) He goes back to sleep. 6am – Wake to screaming- Sam- “My eyes are on FIRE”.  Sam has a high fever- give meds got get more meds….blah blah blah-  Ben then gets up- ok I think you get the point the day is spinning in circles 😦 Two sick inkspots not a good combo! I guess it is FRIDAY the 13th!

Tomorrow is Mr. Ink’s Birthday. So we have been busy preparing for that! Don’t worry he does not read my blog! Not even sure he knows my blog address! LOL! Anywoo, I wanted to make some GREEN Birthday gifts for him. The only thing he really wants is a gun case and he got that with the money from his mom.

So, this is what we came up with:

For 99 cents


A record bowl. They are so easy to make here is a quick video. The cool part is if you do not like how you shaped the bowl you just put it back in the oven and do it over again. The inkspot picked this record so it frosty the snowman! LOL

Next for $1.96


We picked up 4 of these glasses at the local thrift store.  They are made out of the bottom of a beer bottle! Next to the glass is Lil William. Say HI!

Then for $1.99


We  made this little terrarium. I took the lid of it to get a better photo of the inside.

So for around $5.00, I think we got lots of good stuff! We had the best time making them all! Do you think he will be as creative for my Birthday? He only has the weekend to get his butt in gear! LOL!

Off to make him cupcakes now! SMILE

Thanks for stopping in to visit me today! Hope you all have a wonderful day!
