Thrifty Craft Project

So in Arizona we have a boutique that sells the cutest things however it is a little spendy. Most the time when I go into Orange Patch I see things I like and I tell myself, "Oh I could make that for a fraction of the cost." But most the time I never get around to making the things. Well this time I did! My sister and cousin got these cute calendars from the store but I told myself I wouldnt pay $170 for the thing. So.... I made one for ALOT cheaper! In total my magnetic, wipe off calendar cost me $22. Awesome huh? Plus, its so cute!!

The $170 magnetic board from Ala Board which is sold at Orange Patch

The $22 magnetic board made by Ashlyn :)

Cute! I love when I can make things instead of buying them. Good Job!

Cuteness! That is exactly how I feel about Etsy. I love everything on there, but I'm not a do-it yourself person. Maybe I'll have to try one of these days.
