I'm getting there! Today I finally found what I needed for one item I was determined to make. It was cheap, and enough to make enough for my partner and me to both be frugal in the future. Hardly counts as buying anything at all.
I really wanted to make plant markers from something I have at home, but they aren't turning out very well. Bah. But I like the other item I've come up with. Made from something I've had in my stash for ages!
