"That they (the older women) admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Works for Me Wednesday



If you have a toddler, have you ever wondered what to do with all those scribbles? I turn them into wrapping paper, cards and sometimes even presents! Grandparents and other relatives are thrilled to get personalized gifts from your little aspiring "Impressionist." :) For Mother's Day, I took a few of my daughter's drawings, had them laminated and gave them to the grandmothers. You could even add a magnet to the back for a great, frugal gift. At this time in their lives, our daughter's grandparents don't need much materially, but they really do appreciate a good piece of art! To see other people's great ideas this week, check out Works for Me Wednesday! Check out Life as Mom for other great Frugal Friday posts!

That's a great idea. I'm always stumped at what to get for the grandparents. I think they would enjoy something like this.

I like the idea of using it as wrapping paper!
