DIY Basketweave Placemats:
Free Crochet Pattern from Red Heart.
If you’re ever forced to put up with me for an extended period of time (like an hour or more) and you don’t even try to poison my coconut water (it’s got electrolytes!) a consolation/thanks/please-apologize-to-your-family-for-me gift will probably show up at your doorstep/under your pillow/however close the restraining order will allow me #lickitup #embroidery #needlework #art #craft #kiss #genesimmons #stumpwork #tongue
This. Is. AWESOME.
A splash of white vinegar, a splotch of baby wash and some warm water makes a makeup brush cleaner that strips the accumulated gunk out instantly! No soapy residue that requires repeated rinsing, and the brushes are like new again!
