I found this crib on the side of the road, it was a little banged up but it was still in good shape. There was a crack in one of the rails so I put some wood glue in it and clamped it tight. The top drawer was beyond repair so I added a piece of wood as a bottom and put a basket inside it. I had some foam so I made a pad, I covered it with a water resistant fabric and made a sheet for it. A friend at work had a baby two weeks ago and he gladly accepted it. Why would someone throw this out for the trash? A light sanding and a fresh coat of paint brings it back to life. BAM!!

I found this recipe on FOOD.COM when I was looking for a place to find some Hickory Smoke Salt, wow, I never even thought about making my own! I used 1/2 cup of Lite Salt from Morton and 1 tablespoon of Liquid Smoke, mix it together, place it on a tray and let it sit out till dried. It will clump together so I took a fork and stirred it occasionally. Before I stored it in a jar I rubbed it between my fingers.

I had a plain old plastic kitchen trash can and I decided to give it a face lift. I brought two pallets home from work, cut them up and put this together. The plastic trash can sits on a couple of boards that are six inches off the floor.
I just finished my daughters Marine scrapbook and I wanted to share a few pages. The first page is a map and I embroidered the places she has traveled along with airline tickets. The next pages are photos she took while overseas along with the ships she was on.
