{This post contains affiliate links. Just keeping it real.} Gold foiling is big and although most of my friends don't know this, you can use a regular laminator to create foil projects! I decided after talking to friend after friend after friend who didn't know that a laminator was all you needed to create these fun foil projects, I needed to do a post about it here on All Things Thrifty too.  I promise I … [Read more...]

Father's day gift ideas (1 of 1)

The struggle is real. I don't think of creative things 3-6 months in advance. My brain does not work like that. I do admit that I bought a 12 pack of "Dad's Root Beer" a few weeks ago from Costco because I thought it would be fun for the kids to take a few neighborhood dads a drink on Father's Day. BUT, those didn't last. {Ahem, thanks to my husband who started swigging them approximately 2 hours after I told him what … [Read more...]

I think maybe it has been all of the gloomy weather we've been having lately in Texas. When it's grey and chilly outside, I just want to make the house as cozy as possible -- fluffy blankets, a good book and the warm glow of candle light. I'm picky about my candle scents and ingredients, … [Read more...]

I married into the coolest family. They take a close second to the family I grew up in. I can't stop laughing. I know you probably have pictures that look just like these, and if your Mother in law enjoys her kids {you have a 99% chance}, then she will love a book of her kids dressed up like old pictures. Promise. My hubby and his brothers worked hard to make the pictures look as close as possible to the originals. … [Read more...]

ultimate gifts for wife

Dude. You're welcome. I did the leg work to make your life so much easier. I asked hundreds of women what they wanted for Christmas from their spouse, and these are no-fail gifts that {almost} any women will love. I have to say "almost" because let's be honest, whether we like something or not COMPLETELY  depends on our mood. <---  I can't believe I  just admitted that. Shhhh don't tell my husband. But, the best … [Read more...]
