10 Things I've Learned About Stitch Fix


I have learned quite a bit about how to get the best possible fix from Stitch Fix. One thing I know for sure is that I am addicted to it! I can't wait to see those boxes come and begin to explore what items have been chosen for me. Some have been right on, 5 out of 5, but others have been less thrilling. Here are my tips for getting the best fix every time. I have done some research and read what others have recommended for getting the best items for them and have come with a few of my own. So here are my best 10 ways to help assure your next fix is a winner.

Have you ever made your own laundry products? Well, if you're like me it may sound just a wee bit silly to you at first. Why would I make my own when I can just buy it?

Keeping Soil in Tilted Pots


There are so many great yard projects using clay pots. They can be stacked and / or painted to make a lot of really cute things. Many of the projects, like my Bird Bath Planter, use tilted pots. Very cute and I've been enjoying it for three years now. But I found I did have one problem, it is difficult to keep the dirt from washing out of the pot when watering!

DIY Wild Bird Nesting Balls,


I saw these cute nesting balls over at birdsandblooms.com  and decided they would be perfect for my yard. My Mom used to put scraps of sewing fabric on the bushes outside and later we would see them woven into the bird nests. Even now at 88 years old, she still enjoys feeding the birds and putting out fabric scraps and string for them. I decided these would also make a perfect Easter gift for her.
