DIY Origami Money Flower!


Some of you that know me, know that I LOVE origami.  If there's a piece of paper around, I'm never bored. :)  Anyway I was thinking about Valentine's day and decided to see if I could make a flower with money instead of paper.  When cold hard cash is the perfect present for that someone here's a way to make it less "cold" and "hard". :):)

Here's how to do it:  
-First make the stem (here are the instructions from Nick jr.  I just had to tweak it a bit to use a bill)

fold the bill in half

Take one end and fold it down:


fold up flap:

tuck in extra flap and fold in half:  (hopefully the pictures are more helpful then my instructions :)


fold up the bottom to make the leaf:

DONE!  Now follow these easy instructions from Nick Jr. to make the blossom.  
You may have to play around with the size of paper that you use for it.  I used a square that could fit on a CD:

When your done cut off the tip so that you can push the stem through:

Put this baby in a card and you have a nice valentine, or gift...with or without using money as the stem.  :)

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

GIVEAWAY: ERGObaby Carrier! -CLOSED-

Winner

I have carried my little boy in a baby carrier since he was born. I love the convenience of strapping him in and not worrying about the hassle of a bulky stroller. It's also a comfort to hold my little guy close and safe. When I had the chance to review the ERGObaby carrier, I was thrilled to try something that could extend my baby wearing days.


My first test was a true one...Costco. I admit that I didn't really look at the directions when I put the carrier on in the parking lot. But I didn't need to! After one look at a picture in the user manual, I strapped my 20 pound boy in, placed my little girl in the shopping cart, and started on my way through the aisles of Costco. I immediately noticed that the carrier more evenly distributed my son's weight than my normal carrier and held my boy high so my legs weren't bumping into his. This made it significantly easier to tote him around the store. Indeed my normal trips to Costco are exhausting. But after…
