Nifty-Thrifty Tuesday

First I need to
I did not post on Monday.
Matter of fact...
I stayed in bed, curtains closed, 
asked for everyone to be as quiet as possible,
turned my phone off, put my laptop off to the side,
and begged for mercy from God...
please make this
 M I G R A I N E!!!
go away.

I am not 100% better.
Compared to yesterday, I'm on my way.
 onto something more uplifting and inspiring.
How about another Nifty-Thrifty project?

You can create your very own
Artsy House
Sounds like fun?
then lets get started...

You can use any size milk carton.
I happen to have a creamer carton handy.
I've even thought about using the small lunch milk cartons
and creating a mobile.
(this would look adorable)

I created a mixture of liquid starch and water.
Cut strips of newspaper.
Dip newspaper into mixer and apply to milk carton.
Let dry!

Next you will want to apply:
acrylic paint
vintage or scrap paper
Mod Podge
(no rules to being creative, add what you wish)


Artsy House
Enjoy yourself a nifty-thrifty day!


  1. Great idea! Hope you soon feel really better! Hugs & sparkles, Valerie

  2. First of all, I FEEL ya regarding migrane. I am on day 2 and a dark room is all I want!!! Secondly, I've had a moment of inspiration looking at this post - I need an empty carton, stat! Love this upcycling idea, has lots of potential.

  3. Very CUTE!! I'm sorry you don't feel well- hope you're better soon :)

  4. A true Migraine. I have started with them a couple of years ago and all you can do is exactly what you did I really feel for you hun, glad to hear your feeling better though.

    Love the house mobile what a cute idea love the colouring and the long ribbon & beads (ART)

    Love Dawn xx

  5. Thank you for all wishing me well!:]
    Glad to know I am not alone on this one, I had a feeling I wasn't.
    The carton house came about by...
    One day I was staring at the shape of the carton and thought," this looks like a shape of a house", then creativity sparked!!!
    Hope you enjoy creating one of your very own :]
    I still think, the little house mobile, would like adorable so... I am in search on finding tiny cartons to create that project.
    I will post pictures, if I find the cartons, to create this house mobile project.
    *hugs to all*

  6. I love your house mobile! It is so cute and I love the house theme! I am sorry to hear of the migraine. I don't get them often but I find it odd that I woke Monday with one as well. Full on with nausea, too! I had to sleep it off and got nothing done! Hope your week has been much better! Have a wonderful holiday weekend!!
